Peoples Choice Awards 2012 - Kelly Osbourne sports new grey hair

Shouldn't your mother be the one with grey hair? Kelly Osbourne looks old before her time at the People's Choice Awards
By Daily Mail Reporter

It was a short-lived 2010 trend with which stars such as Lady Gaga, Daphne Guinness, Kate Moss, Agyness Deyn, and Peaches Geldof briefly experimented before returning to their customary colours.

But it seems Kelly Osbourne just can't get enough of the grey hair look.

The 27-year-old stepped out onto the red carpet at last night's People's Choice Awards sporting a new silvery 'do, making a marked contrast to her 59-year-old mother Sharon's fiery red locks.

Almost slate-coloured with the barest hint of blonde, the dye-job was far more extreme than her previous ash shade.

The E! Fashion Police presenter was well-dressed however in a floor-length orange and nude gown, with scarlet lipstick adding a touch of edge to the otherwise rather wholesome look.

She was clearly thrilled to attend, as she posted on Twitter earlier in the evening: 'my mum asked me to be her date to the peoples choice awards tonight we are going to have so much fun!'

Kelly quickly got mingling however, and tweeted a snap of herself with 19-year-old Miley Cyrus, writing 'Look who I just found!'.

The Party in the USA singer, who attended the awards with beau Liam Hemsworth looked sensational in a yellow dress that boasted a low plunging neckline and sparkly red shoes.

Kelly also tweeted her Fashion Police mentor Joan Rivers before going out, writing: 'thank you so much for the flowers you sent me! I love you so much I hope you know that!'

Perhaps the gesture was a pre-emptive attempt to spare herself any potential vitriol from the famously firey-tongued Rivers- who never pulls any punches when dissecting red carpet looks.

Miss Osbourne has tried variations on the grey look before- during the 2010 flush and also back in November.

She tweeted when revealing her then slightly violet take on the trend 'as promised here is a pic of my new grey hair! i know most will hate it but i bloody love it!!!'

Kelly followed that post with another discussing the different colors within the grey: 'not the best pic i know but in the light my hair is about 100 different tones of grey/blue/violet I’m obsessed with it!'

It seems Kelly nevertheless laboured over the decision to take the plunge again.

She tweeted two days ago: trying 2 find a perfect blue blond 2 dye my hair & having a bit of trouble i guess @juddminter will just have 2 use his magic again & make 1

It appears she has already had to shake off some less than complimentary remarks about her new 'do.

She fired back at a fan who criticised her new look, writing: 'shut up! what the hell do you know about hair? @juddminter Is one of the best hairdressers on earth he is an artist!'
