Being an actor (and an award-winning one, at that), Lily James often undergoes transformative looks to – shall we say – 'get into character'. Over her lengthy career on screen, we've seen her channel a range of people, including the likes of Cinderella with 'fierce Princess beauty', Pamela Anderson with her iconic updo and not to mention going full-on goth mode with her jet-black micro-fringe look for Versace.

Now, the star has only gone and inhabited a brand new look for her most recent role in the upcoming film, Finalmente L'alba. Brace yourselves, folks, for Lily is now a redhead. And what a time to do it with autumn right around the corner!

Now, I know what you're thinking: this hair (which is most likely a wig) is a temporary transformation and strictly for Lily's character as Josephine Esperanto. However, what we will say is that red for autumn 2022 is such a vibe. I mean, as the general rule goes, with the change in seasons, there also comes a change in hairstyles – just take Khloé Kardashian's honey blonde look as a prime example.

So, just like Karen Smith's breasts can always tell when it's going to rain (IYKYK), I can sense a new hair trend picking up...
