If you're a 20-something woman, there's a chance that at one point in your formative years, you had a big ol' crush on one Orlando Bloom. From his signature mop of brunette curls, to his platinum blonde extensions as Legolas, to various period garb, Bloom has proven himself to be conclusively hot regardless of aesthetic. He reminded us of this yet again with newly "bronde" locks and a very on-trend purple Burberry velvet jacket for the 62nd London Evening Standard Theatre Awards. 

"Bronde," for the uninitiated, is an in-the-middle shade of brunette and blonde, and can be a great transition color for fall, if you're looking to either subtly lighten up dark locks or if you're a blonde looking to test drive a deeper hair color. Bloom falls into the former category, and has once again proved he is truly a beauty chameleon with a penchant for sumptuous fabrics. Thanks for existing, Orlando Bloom.
