Olivia Colman wasn't the only celeb to wow us with a new look at the Oscars last night (9 Feb).

Actress Jane Fonda showed off her new icy-silver hair at the awards ceremony, and the entire transformation took seven hours!

Now, Jane's hair colourist Jack Martin has given fans on Instagram an insight into the transformation, revealing he spent seven hours with the Hollywood star to get her hair ready for the awards ceremony.

He wrote: "Spending 7 hours with this amazing Hollywood star and witnessing her energy, beauty, strength and femininity was so inspiring."

He went on to tell fans Jane spent much of the seven hours writing chapters of her book, learning her lines for the new season of Grace and Frankie, reading newspapers and chatting with Jack and his team.

Jack also revealed it was Jane's "goal" to surprise everyone with her new look as she walked on stage to present the Oscar for Best Picture.

While the star debuted a new hairstyle at the ceremony last, she decided to wear a dress she'd previously worn to the Cannes Film Festival in 2014.

The Elie Saab Couture gown is a stunning fitted dress covered in red beads.

In 2019, the actress and activist said she'd never buy new clothes again. So, instead of buying a new dress for the Oscars, Jane wore her 2014 gown and added a chic red coat, which she said was the last piece of clothing she would ever purchase.
