Courtney Stodden tweeted that a "big change" was in store on Monday, Dec. 9, and now we know why! Three days later, the 19-year-old former blond unveiled her new brunette hair color at the 1st Annual WOWie Awards in Universal City, Calif. In spite of her beauty makeover, the glamour model didn't make over her wardrobe. In true Stodden style, she bared her bod in a plunging red mini-dress. The risqué look required her to go braless, which has never been an issue for the former teen bride.
Thursday's outing also marked the first time Stodden has made a red carpet appearance since breaking up with Doug Hutchison in early November. One of the former couple's many issues regarded Stodden's appearance. "He did not want me to, for instance, get hair extensions. He fought me tooth and nail," she told E! News last month. "He's like, 'I do not want you to get hair extensions.'"
The two also disagreed over Stodden's decision to get breast implants. "He was so in love with me and he was, like, 'You're beautiful the way you are,' kind of like the au naturel, organic thing," Stodden recalled. "He was like, 'You're beautifully organically, why would you change something that's perfect?'"
"That made me want to do it more!" the aspiring singer exclaimed. "So, he just loved me so much the way that I was. But you know, I'm happier now."
The pair had many issues, as viewers of Vh1's Couples Therapy are well aware. Hutchison, 53, later told E! News that he's not holding out hope for a potential reconciliation. "I'm not banking on that at all," the actor said. "Life is incredibly unpredictable. I mean, look what we're going through now!"
Regardless, the thrice-married star will always hold Stodden in high esteem. "When I took those vows with her, when we got married, I took them to heart, through better or worse, richer or poorer, sickness or health," Hutchison said. "And you know what? Divorce doesn't change that."
