Claire Danes will always be a redhead to us, despite her long stint as a blonde (pictured above).

When we met her as Angela Chase on 'My So-Called Life,' she was a deep, rich, wine-hued redhead. She has been rocking golden locks for quite a while, and garnering plenty of attention as Carrie on 'Homeland.'

Danes appeared on 'The Late Show With David Letterman' last night (Nov. 14) and showed off a reddish, strawberry blonde shade, so this is a bit of a change. But it's not too, too drastic.

Here it is, up close. Her smoky eye makeup is amazing.

While we love the new 'do, the locks are probably extensions, since Danes was rocking a chin-length, blonde bob in September at the Emmys, which you can see at the top of this article.

Waving like Miss America.
