On January 6, the entertainment industry's biggest stars gathered in Beverly Hills for the 76th Golden Globe Awards.

Unlike last year's event, where many of the nominated actors and presenters opted for black ensembles to raise awareness against sexual abuse and inequality, this year the ladies of Hollywood did not shy away from color.

While red, green, gold and blue were popular on the red carpet, there were a few who went for a different look in white.

The show's co-host and Best Actress winner Sandra Oh showed off two white gowns, Julianne Moore, Connie Britton, and Dakota Fanning also all looked stunning in the icy shade.

Still, there was one person who knocked it out of the park with her head-to-toe white look: Jamie Lee Curtis.

The 60-year-old actress is at the top of many best-dressed lists after she debuted a new platinum-white hair color to match her long-sleeved dress and futuristic clutch.

As soon as photographs of the Halloween star surfaced, the internet couldn't get enough of her new style. Fans took to social media to compliment Curtis' fierce monochrome look, with many calling her an "ice queen."

While switching up hair color and style is nothing out of the ordinary for women in Hollywood, Curtis' sudden change took her fans by surprise because she has maintained her short, iconic salt and pepper hairdo for years.

Curtis, a former addict, made a pact with herself decades ago to stop caring about what other people think of her appearance. As part of her recovery journey, she swore off plastic surgery and dying her hair so she could always feel like herself.

"I'm trying hard to take the veil off the fraud, to be real, to start with me. In the recovery programme I'm in (for addiction problems), they talk about peeling an onion, exposing more layers," she said a few years ago. "I'm going to look the way God intends me to look . . .with a little help from Manolo Blahnik," the Freaky Friday actress added.

For the 2019 Golden Globes, there's speculation that Curtis' choice of hue was inspired by the suffragette movement. The actress sent out a tweet earlier this week showing her support for the first session of the 116th Congress, which includes a historic number of women.

"A beautiful day in America as women take leadership positions in numbers never before seen in this experiment called democracy," she wrote. "Proud of the [U.S.] today!"
