Mismatched hair color and eyebrows used to be a major faux pas. But now, with bold brows trending on the runway and the red carpet, blondes with dark brows seem to be everywhere. In fact, just last night, model and Burberry face Cara Delevigne — who’s become known for her bushy brows and dirty blonde hair — won the Model of the Year honor at the British Fashion Awards. Get ready to see her face everywhere.

Of course, Cara isn’t the only big name beauty to sport the look. Singer Rita Ora is making platinum hair and super dark brows her thing. And of course, Gwen Stefani has been wearing the look for years.

One advantage of pairing darker brows with light hair? Eyebrows help define your features. Fair-haired and blonde-browed ladies can look washed out without makeup (see: Beauty Mistakes Pale Women Make), but a defined brow can give the face a focal point, making mascara and liner optional.

What do you think of the look?
