It’s been quite the year for Lily James in the hair department. Not only did she experiment with a platinum-blonde (albeit via a wig) when she starred as Pamela Anderson in Hulu’s Pam & Tommy but she also managed to pull off a dramatic jet-black shade, complete with micro-fringe, for a Versace campaign. In between, she tried shades of caramel and chocolate brown along with some sun-kissed balayage.
But it seems that James is not done yet — there are still a few months of 2022 left in which to experiment, after all. At the BFI London Film Festival Luminous Gala on September 29, the actor showed off a new hue: a burnished copper red.
With her hair in a chic but artfully undone up-do, James’s new hair color flattered her alabaster skin tone, and she paired it with rosy cheeks and a pink lip. Reminiscent of the shade that all the cool girls — everyone from Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner to Emily Ratajkowski — tried their hand at earlier in the year, her new look suggests that this particular hair trend is going nowhere this winter.
