Rachel McAdams Goes Super-Blonde for the Oscars (With Bonus Liam Payne and Elizabeth Olsen Hair Changes)

Posted on

Whether or not Rachel McAdams goes home with a trophy Sunday night (that’s the Oscars, for the unaware), she’s officially gone for the gold. On her hair, anyway.

The actress lightened up her already-blonde locks (once again!) for an ash-blonde, almost platinum hue, which she showed off at the Vanity Fair and Barneys New York event in L.A Wednesday evening. McAdams has been every shade under the sun (including a previous detour to bright blonde) and this latest update has almost earned her an invite to the Platinum Bob Club! Is it a deliberate choice to go with her Oscars gown (say, perhaps, this one) Sunday? Time will tell.

McAdams isn’t the only star who made a major mane change this week. Elizabeth Olsen updated her allover blonde look (which was major at the Stella McCartney show in January) by going “bronde” and emphasizing her roots, then debuting the look at the Gucci show.

And lastly, One Direction bandmate Liam Payne debuted a brand-new buzz cut on the red carpet at the Brit Awards in London on Wednesday.

His freshly-shorn sides are courtesy of celebrity groomer Jason Schneidman, of Chris McMillan Salon, who chopped off the singer’s floppy length at the top and buzzed the sides to a close crop.

But don’t worry, One Directioners, even with Payne’s short shear, he’s still as dreamy as ever. Talk to us (or maybe don’t) when Harry Styles goes short.
