Leave it to Katy Perry to reveal a brand new hue on the Grammys red carpet! While some celebrities would opt to get a blowout before a big event, Perry went the extra mile and took her deep jewel-toned hue to a pastel lavender shade. "Lavender complements Katy's skin and her blue eyes," celebrity hair colorist Rita Hazan, who has previously worked with Perry, tells InStyle.com. We love how the edgy new look added an unexpected twist to the elegant vibe of her sheer Zuhair Murad number, which the star chose "straight from the Paris runways," she told Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet.
The hair color chameleon she is, this clearly isn't Perry's first time going purple---the star kicked off 2015 in a darker version of the shade at the Los Angeles Fashion Awards in January. Before then, she previously dabbled with the trend in 2011 with a magenta-toned style, and in 2012 in a dark "purple velvet" hue. Purple hair is definitely having a moment at the 2015 Grammys; Aside from Perry, LL Cool J's wife Simone Johnson worked a deep amethyst on the carpet, and Kelly Osbourne was seen in her trademark wisteria bob. Though she changed back to her signature noir hue before taking the stage to perform, one thing is for sure---whether or not it's the real deal, Katy can pull off the look!
