Blake Lively is nothing if not committed to switching up her beauty looks for a movie role. The latest example comes courtesy of her upcoming project The Rhythm Section, which is currently filming. In it, she plays Stephanie Patrick, a woman who loses her family in a plane crash—and when she finds out that the crash may not have been an accident, she becomes an undercover assassin to track the culprits down. Since it started filming, we’ve caught her in no fewer than three completely different looks; this latest one, which features Blake in long red hair and pin-up-like baby bangs, looks so different we did a major double-take.
It wasn’t that long ago—just back in November—that photos of her on set emerged showing a Blake we honestly didn’t recognize at first: in a short, shaggy wig with a grown-out, brassy dye job that was a far cry from the rather glam Blake of the Long Golden Waves we normally see in red carpet and paparazzi pics. And then, in early December, Blake posted an Instagram of herself in a jet-black pixie cut.
But with the new year comes another new Blake—though, strictly speaking, the look is a first for the film only. After all, we’ve seen Blake with long red hair before: Remember her mermaid-like copper waves in 2011? Of course, this is a different kind of red (golden-red, to be precise). And check out that retro fringe!
We can’t wait to see what other looks this role throws our way—and to see them all together when the film finally comes out next February.
