Camila Cabello shocked her fans with her new era, which started with her hairstyle transformation. The singer decided to go blonde and teased a new chapter in her life with subtle fashion choices until she fully embraced her new look and shared her new music with fans, ahead of her album release and visuals.

During her latest interview with Complex Camila opened up about her new era, revealing the inspiration behind her style and looks. “Changing my physical appearance like my blond hair or fashion — whatever I do, I learned how exciting that is from people like Madonna or David Bowie,” she explained during the interview, after taking the stage at Cannes Lions in France.
