At last year's Academy Awards, Olivia Colman went home with a Best Actress trophy for her role in The Favourite. This year, the English actress, who appeared as a presenter instead of a nominee, was able to breathe a little easier on the red carpet. But that didn't stop Colman from turning every head when she showed up to the Dolby Theater with a platinum pixie.
The fresh, icy-blonde colour is a significant departure from Colman's signature rich dark-brunette shade. Despite being drastic and unexpected, the bright lift fits the star's short pixie perfectly — and couldn't pair better with her luminous emerald earrings and soft makeup.
Only time will tell if Colman's bleached colour is a one-night wonder — a short-lived look to shock and awe at the Oscars — or if it will carry over for the rest of 2020. With the way the bright-blonde pops with a touch of mauve-pink lipstick and black eyeliner, we'd love to see the latter. When Colman took the stage to present Best Actor, she pointed to her new white-blonde hair and quipped, "Winning an Oscar ages you." Never change, Colman, never change.
