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.'

Olivia’s new hair was a hot topic for conversation on Twitter, with many fans commenting on her bold new look.

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.
