But while fashion types don't bat an eye an at 20-something with silver locks, Kelly is still explaining her beauty choice to the rest of the world. The reality star-turned-fashion critic appeared on CBS's "The Talk" to spell it out:
"I've always wanted to be young and have gray hair...
To me, I'm 27, I've got three years left, the way I look at it, to have fun with it, because once you're 30, you look like a right idiot walking around with like rainbow, bright color hair and all different things like that. So I think, for me, I'm just having fun with it as much as I can until it's not appropriate anymore."
She also notes that she made the color change before Lagerfeld debuted gray-haired models in a Chanel ad campaign (although we're pretty sure that's not true...)
Anyway, we're fans of the unconventional hue, Kelly -- no excuses, explanations or post-30 changes necessary!
