'Unrecognisable' Maisie Williams stuns BRIT Awards viewers with blonde makeover

Mirror Online 12 May, 2021 - 12:01am

Maisie Williams made sure to turn heads on the BRITs red carpet with a show-stopping new look.

The Game Of Thrones star, 23, demanded attention as she rocked up to the hotly-anticipated awards ceremony with a stunning hair transformation.

Fans of Maisie will be used to seeing the actress sport a brunette look as tomboy Arya Stark in the hugely popular drama series, but the British star decided to switch things up recently, and she looked almost ‘unrecognisable’ as a result.

Maisie stepped out on stage to present during the prestigious ceremony, and fans at home couldn’t quite believe their eyes.

The platinum blonde beauty looked worlds away from her on-screen character as she sported a dressed-down look which featured an oversized white shirt dress.

The much-loved actress allowed her natural beauty to shine through for the special appearance as she opted for a minimal makeup look – sporting only a slick of mascara and lipgloss.

Maisie wore her blonde tresses away from her face in a slicked-back bun, while her bleached eyebrows stood out amid the edgy look.

It didn’t take fans long to flock to Twitter to share their thoughts on the star’s new look.

“I honestly didn’t realise that was Maisie Williams on stage. She looks soooo different,” remarked one BRITs viewer.

“OMG that’s Maisie?? She looks unrecognisable,” another squealed.

Meanwhile, a third quipped: “Much like Maisie Williams’ eyebrows, I’m lost.”

While some fans may think Maisie’s new look is a personal choice, the actress actually underwent the transformation for a brand-new role.

The 23-year-old underwent a complete makeover for a new show about The Sex Pistols, called Pistol.

The series is based on guitarist Steve Jones' memoir Lonely Boy: Tales from a Sex Pistol.

Maisie plays punk Jordan, whose real name was Pamela Rooke.

Jordan was a model and is known for her association with The Sex Pistols in the seventies.

Pistol will follow the band's early rise to fame in London.

It will also show their shared history with fashion designer Vivienne Westwood.

Coldplay opened the show with a performance from a pontoon on the River Thames. Dua Lipa and Arlo Parks were among acts playing inside the venue.

Little Mix are the first female group to win the best British prize in the history of the awards.
