We've never seen Elle Fanning quite like this before! Yesterday at the Los Angeles premiere of The Boxtrolls, the actress hit the red carpet in a warm brunette hue with a slight cinnamon tint. Both of the Fanning sisters rarely change up their trademark platinum strands, though Elle previously dyed her hair auburn in 2012, which may have prompted Dakota to follow suit with a dark chestnut color shortly after. Because the younger Fanning shifted shades to take on her role in Ginger & Rosa, we're assuming her new makeover is for another upcoming project. "It was a totally different experience. My hair has never been anything but blonde before," she previously told InStyle on becoming a red-head.

Fanning is in good company--she joins Drew Barrymore in the trend as another former blonde who crossed over to the dark side. Though her new look came as a surprise to us, we admit, the coppery brown shade is definitely flattering against Fanning's fair complexion, and serves as an appropriate update for the cooler temps.
