Natalie Portman stepped out to support her dancer husband over the weekend, but all eyes were on the starlet and her newly dyed blond hair.

Portman debuted a mane of blond hair while at Walt Disney Concert Hall, where her husband, choreographer Benjamin Millepied, premiered his new LA Dance Project.

"My mom says I'm like a different person," Portman told the Hollywood Reporter about her blond locks. The actress dyed her brunette hair for a movie role but did not disclose any details about the upcoming project. LA colorist Tracey Cunningham was behind the transformation. "I did it just a couple of days ago."

Cunningham dished on Portman's new look to Us Weekly.

"Natalie makes a beautiful blonde!" colorist Cunningham told Us Weekly. "She needed to make the change for an upcoming movie role, and using Redken's Blonde Dimensions we achieved a gorgeous, multi-dimensional golden blonde."

The magazine notes that Portman was a blonde once before, when she donned a honey-hued wig for her role as a stripper in the 2004 film "Closer."

Portman hung out with Robert Pattinson and her husband at the Van Cleef & Arpels Dinner that night.

And though Portman might be regarded as one of Hollywood's greatest beauties, she is not always inclined to the glamorous life.

"I have to be very put-together all the time, so when I'm home I use Joelle Ciocco face wash, let my hair dry naturally, and put no makeup on," the actress previously told Vogue. "I prefer the old-school kind with the nubby insides. I associate putting on a dress and curling my hair with work. It's the other side of my Spider-Man self."

The actress, who is the mother of 1-year-old Aleph, is currently the face of Miss Dior Cherie perfume. Some of her forthcoming films include "Thor: The Dark World" and "Knight of Cups."
