Hoping to spice things up for spring? Why not take a cue from Maggie Gyllenhaal, who just debuted the brand new, bright-blonde version of the pixie she’s been sporting for a year now. The actress stepped out at the Cannes photocall for The Honourable Woman in a very “French girl chic” look of a ruffled ivory dress, flat sandals and her new do tousled to perfection.

The actress is the latest to join the blonde crop brigade — Jennifer Lawrence, Julianne Hough and Pamela Anderson were charter members — after opting for a short pixie to salvage a bowl cut she had for a film role. “I originally cut it … in, like, a bowl cut for a movie,” she told PEOPLE at the time. “But when I got home I was trying to figure out what to do with it, so I asked Serge [Normant] to cut it, and he cut it all off!”

She loved the cut so much that she stuck to it — but now she’s mixing up her looks with this pure platinum shade, without even a hint of roots. And judging from her WhoSay account, she’s digging this do too. “I’m blonde btw,” she captioned the below sweet smiling photo on her social media account.

What do you think of Gyllenhaal as a blonde? Are you thinking about a new hue for spring? Tell us below!
