The Real Housewives of New York's Carole Radziwill always exudes an effortless cool, and her latest look is no exception. The author recently ditched her signature caramel locks in favor of a blonde 'do and ever since we're just over here fawning over her latest Instagram snaps. Listen: It's not stalking if it's market research.
The verdict? We are really, really digging this new style on the New York author. Here are the top five reasons why.
1. It's an Unexpected Hue For Fall
When the weather turns brisk, it's pretty common to seek out a cozy, darker hair color. (Think auburn or chocolate brown.) But, not everything has to be pumpkin-spice colored this time of year. Why not embrace a lighter shade as the leaves starts to change?
2. It's Closer to Carole's Natural Color
The writer took to Twitter to explain that her new hue resembles the one she had at birth. (Aww, baby Carole!)
We love that she's going back to her roots. Literally!
3. It's One More Thing to Bond Carole and Tinsley
Do instant BFFs Tinsley Mortimer and Carole need to share a hair color to have something in common? Absolutely not! But, we can't wait to see the adventures — and hair-care tips — the pals share, now that they have a similar hue. We're not sure whether Carole will ever convince Tinsley to chop off her signature locks for a shorter 'do, but at least the two beauties can agree on one thing: blondes do have fun!
4. It Makes Carole's Complexion Totally Glow
Can we just agree that Carole has the best skin ever? The 54-year-old has a complexion that a 20-year-old would envy (psst: she once told The Lookbook that she swears by La Prairie's Skin Caviar to help maintain that glow.) Carole's lighter hair just serves to brighten up her radiant skin tone — don't you think?
Look at her glow!
5. It Encourages Us to Take Beauty Risks
Finally, we love when one of our beauty icons changes up her style, because it inspires us to do the same. Instead of coloring inside the lines, we may branch out into something unexpected this fall — all thanks to Carole's return to the blonde side. Hmm, a new, platinum 'do would make a splash at those upcoming holiday parties.
