Katherine Jenkins Shows Off New Even Darker Hair On Instagram

Is it just us or has our favourite mezzo soprano Katherine Jenkins dyed her hair even darker and maybe even added a touch of red to the mix?

The star posted a selfie on Instagram at the weekend moments before she was about to go onstage at the The Dorchester Hotel and her look couldn't be farther from the blonde bombshell we're all used to.

Jenkins' previously platinum locks were a distinctly more chestnut hue - and looked incredible. Blondes thinking about going to the dark side, this is your inspiration. Have you ever seen a glossier, healthier mane?

The singer teamed her gorgeous blow-dry with a scarlet strapless dress, a smoky eye and a whole lot of sparkle. Total diva.

Jenkins transition from almost white blonde to a more auburn brown has been a gradual one with her first showcasing darker blonde and caramel tones earlier this year.

Her last big social engagement was receiving an OBE at Buckingham Palace from Prince Charles for services to charity and music, when she sported a chic light chignon under a stunning fuchsia Philip Treacy hat.

By the time she posted a no makeup selfie on Instagram in March, she'd definitely lost more of her blonde but with the latest picture, we think she's really landed on a winner. Finding a colour that suits it's hard to do, so bravo Katherine!

The star landed back in the UK earlier this month after filming for US show Dancing With The Stars in LA. Let's hope she stays for a while - we can't get enough of her red carpet and onstage style.
