Though Emily Blunt has been been a bit of a hair chameleon for a while now (we’re seen her go from red to brunette to highlighted bronde and back again), we still totally think of her as the sassy auburn assistant we first fell in love with in The Devil Wears Prada.

Which is why it came as such a shock to see her as a full-blown blonde at New York Fashion Week!

The mother of two was on hand in NYC to check out the show at Michael Kors, but instead of the designer’s runway, our eyes were drawn to Emily’s newly flaxen locks.

Much lighter (and brighter!) than the mousy brown hue she rocked for her upcoming role as Rachel in The Girl on the Train (out October 7), we must say: This is an unexpected improvement if we ever saw one.

Which leaves us more confused than ever! After all, how are we supposed to pick a favorite now that we know she looks so positively perfect in every shade of the hair color spectrum? Sigh.

Do you like Emily better as a blonde? Sound off over @BritandCo.
