Back to blonde, baby!

Kim Kardashian landed in Paris on Wednesday, March 4, just in time for the last leg of fashion month, and she brought quite the style statement with her for the occasion: newly dyed blonde tresses!

All bundled up in a fur-topped Celine coat, leather leggings, Victorian-style boots, and a beanie, Kardashian, 34, clearly thought she could hide her dramatic hair makeover. But while reuniting with her husband, Kanye West, for the first time in a week, the reality star's hat came just a touch loose, revealing a platinum-hued 'do.

Then on Thursday, March 5, the Dash co-founder stepped out of her Parisian hotel and made the dramatic entrance we're sure she'd originally intended, putting her blonde shock of a crop (courtesy of Lorri Goddard) on full display.

Her inspiration? The most fashionable time of the year! "She wanted to do something fun for fashion week," a source tells Us Weekly.

It's been quite some time since we've seen Kardashian with blonde hair. She last lightened up to a honey blonde in the fall of 2013, a hue she maintained through February 2014. But when she did ultimately go back to her dark roots, she immediately wanted to return to the sunny shade. "I'm missing my light hair! HELP! What do I do? Go light again or stay dark and get used to it?" she tweeted last year.

Meanwhile, her younger sister, Khloe Kardashian, unveiled her blonde transformation earlier this week—a choice she's clearly pleased with, per her Instagram. "I'm in love with my blonde hair! @traceycunningham1 you killed it with this color!" she wrote.
