'Outlander's Caitriona Balfe Lands in London With Whole New Look

Caitriona Balfe is switching up her hair ahead of fall, and unlike the traditional darker shades we tend to see this time of year, this actress went blonde.

The Outlander star was spotted on the red carpet before heading into the private viewing of "Gabrielle Chanel. Fashion Manifesto" at The V&A on Wednesday evening in London, England, debuting a bold and much lighter bob cut.

Along with the chic hairstyle, the 43-year-old Irish actress rocked a sparkly black jumpsuit and a sheer white lace top with poet sleeves. She completed the look with a set of dangly earrings, a white leather clutch, a pinkish-brown lip color and red nail polish.
