The princess of pop’s got a new ‘do!

The Academy Awards are known for bold fashion choices, but Britney Spears showed up to Elton John’s Oscars afterparty on Feb. 24 with a style statement of her own— she dyed her hair brown!
 
The 31-year-old wore a stunning black Michael Cinco Couture gown with a sheer back and cap sleeves— a plunging number that paired perfectly with her new brunette tresses. 
 
 
And that’s not all. Brit also appeared healthily bronzed with impeccable makeup— perhaps she was all dolled up for her reported new man? 
 
The former X Factor judge recently celebrated Valentine’s Day with her new rumored love interest, David Lucado. Days later, the pair played a round of golf at Sherwood Country Club near Britney’s home. 
 
 
While we were surprised to see Britney’s new hair hue after the Academy Awards, it’s not the first time the mother of two traded in her famous blonde locks for a darker look. She infamously dyed her hair in 2007, when she released her album Blackout. The last time she went brunette was back in 2009, when she first started dating her now ex- fiancĂ©, Jason Trawick.
 
You know what they say: The best revenge you can get on an ex is to look hotter than ever. Congrats, Brit. Mission accomplished.
