Gossip Girl’s Kaylee DeFer traded in her blond strands for a coppery red shade, a decision she made for the hit CW show. “Now that my Gossip Girl character is growing and changing into her own person instead of being ‘Charlie Rhodes, Serena’s cousin,’ I don’t have to look like her,” the actress told us during New York Fashion Week. “I was born blond, but it washes me out. I like to have warmer tones, so I asked if I could warm it up a little this season now that my character has come out as Ivy.” Tell us: Do you like her new style? Let us know in the comments!
