Blake Lively has dyed her blonde locks red for a new film role and is loving being a redhead.
The Gossip Girl beauty - the new face of Chanel handbags - showed off her new look at the Time 100 Gala in New York this week, and told People she loves her red hair as it makes her feel like the Disney princess in The Little Mermaid.
Blake, who was wearing an aquamarine gown, said: "I love it - I feel like Ariel."
The 23-year-old actress revealed she dyed her hair to get into character for new comedy drama Hick which co-stars Chloe Moretz as a Nebraska teenager who runs away to Las Vegas and befriends Blake's character.
Blake said: "It's for the film Hick. I thought [my character] needed red hair. It helps when you're playing a role, when I don't feel like myself. And I don't really feel like myself with red hair."
