  • Last night marked the 92nd Academy Awards and it certainly didn’t disappoint on the glitz and glamour front, but one star in particular turned heads - British actress Olivia Colman.

    The star stepped out onto the Oscars red carpet with a brand new hairstyle, pairing it with her Stella McCartney navy blue velvet gown.

    Olivia sported a platinum blonde crop – a step away from her usual dark brown hair, which was seen at the BAFTAs just a week ago.

    The man behind the new style – hair stylist Marcus Francis – took to Instagram to share a photo of her hair, with the caption, ‘Blonde ambition. Nothing like a major change the DAY of the Oscars.’

    Blonde ambition 💥 Nothing like a major change the DAY of the Oscars 🙃 #oliviacolman looked stunning on her way to the Oscar red carpet. Hair #marcusfrancis using @betternatured Hair color by me + @jessiestellarhair 💄 @sarahuslan 👗 @mirandaalmond • • I used Better Natured Moisturizing Shampoo, followed by the Moisturizing Masque after just bleaching her hair to platinum blonde. On towel dried hair, I applied the Better Natured Reshapeable Heat Lotion with a few spritzes of the Beach Texture Spray. I sculpted her hair into pics with my hands, drying it on low speed it started to set her hair into place. For finishing touches I used the Better Natured Strengthening Leave In Cream to piece out any extra kicks on the hair. #betternatured #goodcleanfun #oscars #oscars2020 #hair #pixiecut #platinumblonde #hairstyles #redcarpet #beauty #bts

    While someone else wrote, ‘Losing my mind over blonde Olivia Colman.’

    Another commented, ‘Olivia Colman looks GREAT as a blonde!’

    Olivia’s makeup – created by artist Sarah Uslan using No7 makeup – also perfectly complemented her new barnet. The star sported a creamy blush, black eyeliner and rosy pink lips – letting her platinum hair speak for itself.

    During the ceremony, Olivia took to the stage to present the Best Actor award and made a hilarious joke about her husband.

    Referring to her win last year for her role in The Favourite, the actress joked, “Hello, there. Thank you for having me back. It’s such a pleasure to be here. Last year, was the best night of my husband’s life.

    “He actually says that. And I’ve given birth three times.

    “So I hope you’re all having as good a time as he did. And I did.”

    Olivia presented the Best Actor award to Joaquin Phoenix, for his performance in Joker.

    It’s been a big year for Olivia Colman so far. Back in January, she won an Golden Globe for her portrayal as Queen Elizabeth in Netflix’s The Crown.
