Mad Men star Elisabeth Moss (Peggy Olson) debuted her short blonde Miley hairdo last month.

“It's fun, isn't it?” the former brunette told fellow blonde Lara Spencer on the 2012 Emmys red carpet. “I like being blonde.” Why the change? “I wanted to do something really different,” she said, “and it was either this or a tattoo, so I figured this was a little bit less permanent."

There have been a lot of changes in Elisabeth’s life lately. Last year she divorced Saturday Night Live comedian Fred Armisen and this past June she debuted a new boyfriend.

The Lead Actress in a Drama nominee also took some risks fashion-wise, wearing a Dolce & Gabbana print on the Emmys red carpet. She said it was her first print. Peggy would be proud at her bold moves! Speaking of Peggy, Elisabeth said Mad Men Season 6 starts filming next month but she has no idea what will happen. Here’s one guess: She’ll be wearing a wig throughout filming!
