Paris, is that you?!

  • Post a comment

Over the last year, Delta Goodrem’s life has changed pretty dramatically. This time last year she was engaged to marry Brian McFadden, was sporting the natural Aussie beach babe brand of beauty that we’d come to expect from her, and looked like she was well and truly settling into life as she knew it.


Fast forward to now. She’s ditched the hubby-to-be and picked up a boy toy in Nick Jonas, 8 years her junior. I

guess we should have expected the starlet’s look might change too, but I must admit, I never thought I’d be mistaking Delta for Paris Hilton. Never ever in fact.


So when Delta stepped out at the Avon Foundation Awards Gala in New York on November 2nd, I was verysurprised to see our Aussie gem glammed up to the nines – looking nothing like her usual laid-back self. What I saw was much more Paris Hilston’s style… Lots of curly, Barbie-blonde hair complete with milkmaid braid? Check. A big set of false lashes? Check. And a bolder-than-bold red lip to finish it all of? Check, check, check.


It got me to thinking, is it expected that we change our look when we change our lives? Did Delta Goodrem think a younger man should call for a younger, more dolled-up look? The question is, would you do the same?



Do you think changing your look goes hand in hand with changing your life?

There's a few we can't tell who's who!

I love Delta's new look :) She pulls it off better than Paris I think.
I think that a change in your life can depict a change in your look, I know if I were to become single I'd go bananas and revamp my look to styles I've always wanted to try. It makes me think about whats holding me back now? A new look to me does go hand in hand with a fresh start I guess. New life new look.

I don't mind her look. I still think it's weird that she's going out with Nick Jonas though.

I change my look sometimes when im going through a lifestyle change(or even when i start to get a bit down and out emotionally) thats for the better to me it simbolises leaving that part of my life behind me...

This looks more like an older look than a younger look so who knows what she's thinking. Maybe it was the NY influence on her for that night only - let's hope!

Mmmm... not a fan of the new look. But yea ... I guess your look would change if your life did as dramatically as hers ... your interests would change, day to day life would change, experiences would change, why not your look as well??? Mmmm ... now I'm wondering if I NEED to change my look as I've had this one for a long while now??? lol.

Wow - Delta Goodrem looks really beautiful .. love the lighter hair . I think when girls go through a relationship break-up - they head to the salon for a new do - its almost theraputic

I seriously can't take celebrity hook ups serious!! Nick Jonas!! Is this an intro into the US market or what?? He is barely a man and I just can't help there is something wrong with this. I'm all for different age hookups when it is age appropriate. I think changing your look is a good thing. We evolve as we grow but as long as we are still true to ourselves and not trying to be something for someone else or something.

The beauty of beauty is that we can change things up whenever we feel like it, I'd never wear the same makeup and hair every day, where's the fun in that?

Her new look is okay though I think Delta looked better previously (when she first came back with a new makeover - sexy, sultry eyes etc). Perhaps being with a younger guy is rubbing off on her, but I think it's only natural that people change their look to suit different phases of their lives. I went through a stage where I wore all black because I listened to rock music. Now my style is colourful, girly and bright!

Hmmm, i think is trying to copy paris hilton. But the look does kind of suit her, i just don't like the idea of going out with someone whos years younger than me, that is just disgusting lol. I rather a man my own age.

I must perfer her more natural aussie beach look, which I actually think makes her look younger. Maybe its just because I've never been a fan of the bleached look, or Paris Hilton for that matter. A guy 8 years her junior....that would make him pretty young, as she isnt that old either!

Oh dear, it looks like she's succumbed to the will of the herd! The first time I saw a photo of Delta, I thought she was stunning - a classically beautiful face with understated makeup that suited her perfectly. But now she looks like every other wannabe starlet in the US - how sad. Unless of course this pic was taken during Halloween, well that would explain it...

Yeah I get the "change your life, change your look" thingy - it's the outer confirmation of the inner pathway redirection. For some, the results can be breathtaking, while for others it's a backward step (I'm talking about self neglect). Change is good at any time though, doesn't need a reason :-)

She looks like a cheap blow up doll - she used to be so gorgeous - now she looks like a painted doll :(

I definitely prefer her last year look. I think this is just too made up and high maintenance.

Not a fan, much preferred her more down to her natural look than this number!

I personally like her new look but there wasn't anything wrong with how she used to be either..maybe she is trying to get back on the radar? who knows we might see her dressed like GaGa soon enough :)

Delta looks gorgeous! I find it a bit weird she's dating the youngest of the Jonas brothers!! I thought it was just a rumour...but apparently not!

I would change if I felt I needed to feel better about myself or was sick of everything, Delta went the whole hog not sure if I like it or not she always looks beautiful but is this the look for her who knows.

i think she pulls off the look better then paris! some times if you change your life its good to change your look. recently i heard of a skin head who had removed his racist tattoos! so that he and his family could have a fresh start.
