Kata Mara is such a beautiful woman, and we could never understand why every time she hit the red carpet she would use ungodly amounts of gel to slick back her hair. Whether she greased all of her hair back or let some hang free around her shoulders, you could always count on being able to see your reflection on Ms. Mara's shiny head.
To tell you the truth, before we saw this photo, we didn't even know the House of Cards star had gone blonde. All that gel used to darken and camouflage her sun-kissed (okay salon-kissed) blond highlights.
We also adore Ms. Mara's flattering side part (as opposed to that harsh middle part she's been known to flaunt) and that her perfect blowout properly shows off her new highlights.
