Obsessed with: Katy Perry’s Kate Winslet-inspired blue hair

Katy Perry's blue hair is half Anna Wintour, half Kate Winslet in "Eternal Sunshine"Almost a month after first being spotted with blueberry hued hair, Katy Perry has explained her eccentric yet sleek dye choice. The star tells Women’s Wear Daily that her hair is the middle ground between two disparate inspirations—Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour’s sophisticated bob, and Kate Winslet’s haphazard mess of blue curls in the film “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.”

“I was trying to find a happy medium between crazy and mature,” explains Perry.

Alternate theory: Perry voiced Smurfette in last summer’s reboot of “The Smurfs,” and thus still has blue on the brain. That, or she found a way to externalize feeling blue over her split with Russell Brand.

Personally, I think Perry’s hair looks stunning. But I also recognize that I am completely and totally biased, as I have had a streak of blue in my hair for 17 years now (gasp, how can it have been that long?), ever since I fell in love with the color and scent of Atlantic Blue Punky Color in the 10th grade. No really—now that the brand Punky Color no longer is sold in the US, I special order it from the UK.

I’m curious—what do you think of Perry’s hair? Here’s another recent look she rocked, taking the whole effect in an even more Wintour-ian direction.
