Kim Kardashian goes blonde

Kim shocked her fans with her latest drastic hair transformation

Kim Kardashian is no stranger to a style-overhaul, but we definitely didn't see her latest transformation coming. 

We clocked the 33-year-old reality TV star in New York yesterday with her trademark dark tresses, only for her to emerge a couple of hours later as a blonde bombshell. It might not be the first time that Kim has given her hair the bleached treatment  - she was notably lighter back in 2013 - but this is certainly the blondest she's ever dared to go.

The revelation caused a major buzz amongst her fans as the newly-wed (who tied the knot with Kanye West last month) took to her Instagram account to post a series of selfies with her new locks using the hashtag #BlondeHairDontCare. It was only a short while after that Kim, having received a mixed response from her followers about her latest look, decided to set the record straight and revealed that her blonde hair was in fact a wig. 

The later post reassured her pro-brunette fans that the blonde style would only be temporary, also stating that she couldn't believe how realistic the hair-piece looked. We can't help but agree; after the truth came out, we homed in on the images and still can't tell it's fake. Well you wouldn't expect to see a glimpse of a net on Mrs Kanye West, would you? 

Do you prefer Kim as a blonde or brunette? We're an office divided...
