A little awkward. Miranda Lambert debuted her new pink-tipped hairstyle on the red carpet on Wednesday, Nov. 4 at the 2015 Country Music Association Awards amid Us Weekly's revelation that her ex-husband, Blake Shelton, was now dating his The Voice costar Gwen Stefani.
But as soon as fans jumped on Twitter to discuss their favorite country star's new, post-breakup look, several commentators noticed that Lambert's look, while cool and eye-catching, was also strikingly similar to Stefani's hairdo back in 1999.
"Is Miranda Lambert's pink hair an homage to Gwen's Tragic Kingdom?" one Twitter user asked.

"I wonder if the pink color in Miranda Lambert's hair is a dig at Gwen Stefani?" chimed in another.
Whether Lambert was making a statement or not, hair color or no hair color there was No Doubt the two women would be making headlines at the high-profile music awards, held just a few hours after Stefani's rep confirmed exclusively to Us that she and recently divorced Shelton were officially an item.
"Gwen and Blake are longtime friends who have very recently started dating," Stefani's spokesperson revealed.
And while mom-of-three Stefani did not walk the CMA's red carpet at her new beau's side, a source told Us Shelton planned to party with his new girlfriend later in the evening.
