Erica Rose ambled onto The Bachelor Season 9 with a (mesmerizing) entitled attitude, baffling even the unflappable Chris Harrison with questions like “Where are the maids?” Flash forward six years to Erica’s triumphant one-lining return to Bachelor Pad 3.

Despite still packing her tiara (and wearing it around the house), this Southern belle now has a law degree — and she managed to tone her mean girl moments down from hours of marauding to just a handful of snarky barbs per episode. (See her choice Regina George moment, in which she told superfan David Mallet: “You’re an ugly loser.” Still got it!)

But this celebutante didn’t just polish up her attitude — she now has an all-new sophisticated look. On August 23, 2012, Erica showed off a brand-new, darker blonde coif at The Apparition premiere in Los Angeles. Sporting toned-down natural makeup, shoulder-length honey-blonde locks (courtesy of Sharon at MikiSharon in Los Angeles), and a flattering black-and-white couture shift, Erica looks a 2012 version of her fictional role model, Elle Woods.

Fittingly, Erica will begin practicing law at a Los Angeles firm in just two weeks, according to Twitter.
