Talk about a double-take!
Orange Is the New Black star Natasha Lyonne recently stole the spotlight when she attended Paris Fashion Week on June 25. The actress looked noticeably different from her hair color to her paler complexion. She swapped her strawberry blonde locks for a deep auburn shade. Plus, her unkempt hairstyle paired with her bare skin and deep lipstick made the star look completely unrecognizable.
She posted some photos from her trip to Instagram and fans were quick to comment on her new look. One wrote, “You like a hot flaming Cheeto goth and I love that!” While another added, “Oh my god you’re so iconic. LOVE.”
The 38-year-old actress most recently appeared on the fifth season of the hit Netflix drama which was released on June 9. Since filming the latest season, Natasha has been vocal about the evolution of her character, Nicky Nichols — which she received an Emmy nomination for portraying in 2014 — and the series as a whole. Her character is in a bit of a tumultuous relationship with Lorna Morello (played by Yael Stone) which she said took a new dynamic in Season 5.
“In the history of our five years working together, we’ve gotten so intimate — like, we can really read each other’s nuances,” she explained. “When we’re taking pauses, if there’s gonna be a little follow-up move that’s kind of unexpected, if the person is kind of angling toward a little bit of improv in a way or wants to change up a bit, we can kind of ESP read each other at this point and give each other the appropriate space to really try new things.”
We hope to see more of of this new Natasha!
