Lady Gaga ditched her blonde hair for brunette ahead of her next movie, "Gucci."

Gaga was spotted rocking her new hair color when she stepped out in Rome Wednesday. In photos shared by E! News, the singer-actress upped the glam quotient with a leopard print caftan from Celine's fall/winter 2020 ready-to-wear collection and black heels. Her face was completely covered by large sunglasses and a black studded face mask. 

The 34-year-old appears to have colored her hair just recently as in her latest Instagram photos, shared on Feb. 17, her tresses were still blonde. 

It's not clear if the new look is for her upcoming movie "Gucci," for which she is expected to start filming in March, according to Grazia magazine. Gaga will portray the role of Maurizio Gucci's ex-wife, Patrizia Reggiani, in the Ridley Scott-directed film, which also stars Jared Leto, Al Pacino and Adam Driver.

Fans were quick to notice her latest look and took to Twitter to share their thoughts. "can we talk about how lady gaga serves everytime she goes brunette," one fan tweeted.

Gaga was last seen on the big screen in 2018 as Ally Maine in "A Star is Born," for which she also had brunette hair. 

The pop star's Italian outing comes after Gaga shared that a family member was hospitalized amid the coronavirus crisis.

"I got to be honest. I'm about to cry on the other end of this call with you because it's really — it's doctors, it's nurses, it's essential workers," she told People when asked what has been giving her hope in 2020.

"I haven't spoken to this person about speaking about this publicly, but I will tell you that a very important member of my family was very, very ill recently and in the hospital for almost two months. I was in the ICU by myself many times because you can't go in with more than one person, if you can go in at all. I have never seen the heroic acts of bravery that I witnessed, watching these doctors and nurses and people that were cleaning at the hospitals," she added. 

The singer heaped praise on the staff who worked effortlessly during these difficult times.

"They put their heart and soul into their work, and they even cared for me, who — I assure you, nobody could even recognize me behind all the gear that I had on," Gaga shared. "They just said, 'How are you doing? How is your family? Is everything okay? Can we do anything?'"
