She is currently basking in a new round of critical and famous admiration for her interpretation of Queen Elizabeth II in the latest series of Thefl by Netflix.
And Olivia Colman, 46, debuted one of her most dramatic transformations of all on Sunday when she reached the star-studded red carpet at the 92nd annual Academy Awards sporting platinum blonde locks.
The Oscar-winning actress, who was seen just a week earlier with sporty brunette locks at the BAFTAs in London, turned heads when she arrived at the Hollywood Dolby Theater with her brand-new hairstyle styled in a pixel cut.

Big night in the city: Olivia Colman was one of those present at the 92nd annual Academy Awards, which was held on Sunday at Hollywood’s Dolby Theater
Her British gaze casts her astonishing look beyond her slender curls and cuts a royal figure into a royal blue velvet dress with recesses under her shoulders.
She added an extra wow factor to her look, the dress with long sleeves descended in a short train, which was lined with a contrasting white lining on the inside.
The star stood on a pair of black heels and wore a handbag decorated with oversized jewelry.

The Fleabag star chose to keep its accessories in the same way as beautiful, sporty emerald rings and matching chandelier earrings.
She kept her makeup light and flattering for the occasion, with the star opting for smoky shadows, fluttering eyelashes and a smooth lipstick.
Hollywood’s awards season reaches its peak tonight, with a cliffhanger over the top prize after a season marked by dark horses, renewed fear of diversity, and a South Korean underdog who could take the win from the biggest names in show business.
While the dark comic book film Joker enters the ceremony with a leading 11 nominations, it is the immersive World War One film 1917 that has emerged as the film to beat in the best photo race after winning a whole series of accolades in the last five weeks.

Yet a win for 1917 is far from a foregone conclusion, with South Korean social satire Parasite and sentimental favorite Once Upon a Time in Hollywood by Quentin Tarantino who also fights for the attention of the 8,000 voters of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
The Korean language Parasite certainly seems to take the renamed best international feature film Oscar and would make history if the black comedy about haves and have-nots in modern Seoul also takes the best statue home.
Martin Scorsese’s mobsaga The Irishman seems to have lost his momentum despite lush early praise and a cast with Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci. But this season it has not been possible to take home important acting or directional indications, probably Netflix’s best hope so far to pick up his first best Oscar photo.
The best director category, a controversial whole for men, is just as difficult to name, according to Oscar Pundits, with a line-up with Sam Mendes (1917), Scorsese, Todd Phillips (Joker), Tarantino and Bong Joon Ho (Parasite).

Winner: in 2019 she took the coveted Best Actress Oscar for her efforts in The Favorite
Some races already seem stuck. Brad Pitt has never won an acting prize, but he has charmed public awards with his witty speeches and supporting actor performance as a relaxed stunt double in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
Joaquin Phoenix has dominated the best actor prizes for his terrifying rendering of an isolated loner in Joker, while Renee Zellweger appears to have locked the best actress in playing an outdated Judy Garland in Judy.
A victory by Zellweger would defeat Harriet star Cynthia Erivo, the only person of color in the acting line-up who has renewed the #OscarsSoWhite furor despite four years of efforts to diversify membership of the academy.
As they were hosted in the second year, Oscar organizers gave few details about the ceremony except to announce live performances by original song competitors Elton John, Idina Menzel, Randy Newman, Chrissie Metz and Erivo.
Five-time Grammy winner Billie Eilish will also take the stage for what is announced as a special performance with which she could debut her theme song for the upcoming James Bond film No Time to Die.
