Kate Mara Celebrates the End of Summer by Going Platinum Blonde

We frequently look to Kate Mara's ever-changing hair for inspiration. The star has truly mastered rocking shorter strands in a wide variety of styles (even updos) and looks stunning in an assortment of hues. After a few years of dabbling with red and brunette colors, Kate has decided to return to lighter locks: She's gone platinum.

The actress has left her roots an ashy dark blond shade, which fades into a cooler, icier hue that beautifully complements her fair skin. We hope she remains a platinum blonde for award season, as we would love to see her work this tint on the red carpet.
