Vogue proves that sometimes brunettes have more fun!

FADE STREET star Vogue Williams has revealed that she went brunette because she wanted to change her image.

The Irish model turned DJ showed off a darker look last week before jetting back to Australia with her boyfriend Brian McFadden.

Speaking to the Diary, Vogue (left) said it was time for something new. "I decided to go brunette because I have been blonde all my life and felt like a change," she said.

Vogue (25) can now no longer be compared to Brian's ex-fiancee Delta Goodrem, who people have often said she looks similar to, as she sported the same light blonde hair and slender figure.

And it looks like former Westlife star Brian is a fan of her new darker do. He posted a picture of Vogue sporting the brunette look this week on his social networking site and wrote: "Wow I am one lucky man."

Vogue told the Diary that after years of getting her hair dyed and styled for photo shoots and Fade Street, her hair was getting dry and was in a bad condition.

"I also found with constantly having to style my hair for work every day that it was damaging it so having it brown means that I am at least not damaging it with bleach," she explained.
