Why our golden girl Laura's gone ginger

WHO'S that girl?

Laura Whitmore ditched her trademark blonde locks for a ginger mullet yesterday.

The MTV Presenter (27) showed off the daring do as she posed for the charity photoshoot Wig Wednesday.

Laura's new looks included the ginger mullet and a sleek bob with blunt cut bangs.

"I want to be a punk rocker," Bray native Laura told her fans as she tried on the ginger wig.

Beside the snap of the black bob she wrote online: "Bobbedy bob bob."

Laura was posing for legendary fashion photographer Ian Rankin.

"What's next?" she asked as she posted a picture of a multitude of wigs lying on her dressing room floor.

The wigs came in a variety of colours and cuts and included a flaming red layered wig and a purple perm.

The different looks were met with mixed reviews from her twitter followers. "No! Stay blonde it suits you more," one wrote.

Another commented "looking good as a punk."

Laura seemed to enjoy her hair transformations. "Shooting with Rankin for Wig Wednesday is fun," she wrote.



Wig Wednesday is a campaign to raise awareness and money for CLIC Sargent; an organisation to help young people and children diagnosed with cancer.

Other celebrities who have posed for the campaign include Natalie Cassidy and Tara Palmer-Tomkinson.

Ian Rankin has photographed everyone from the queen, Tony Blair, Gorbachev, and Madonna.
