Lucy Mecklenburgh popped a picture on Instagram yesterday (7 August) with 70s make-up and afro hair... and she looked so different we almost didn't recognise her!

Her hot disco look was a far cry from the gorgeous TOWIE girl's usual classic, glamorous style. But we have to admit, we love it.

"Sneak peek from today's shoot at @selectmodelmgmt," she posted to her fans last night, alluding to the fact there might be even more pictures to look forward to as well...

Lucy usually wears her hair in a straight, shoulder-length do and generally opts for the classic TOWIE make-up of strong, smoky eyes, lots of lashes and a nude, shiny lip.

So, this is definitely pretty 'out there' for her.

But she wears it well.

We love the mint green eyeshadow which makes Lucy's brown eyes really pop. And the strong brows and black sex-kitten eyeliner scream '70s disco' which we're always fans of here in the Reveal office.

Her hair, whether natural or a wig, looks amazing and might even give Beyoncé's younger sister, Solange Knowles a run for her money in the 'queen of afro' stakes!

Which begs the question. Will the afro be the hottest new hair trend for autumn/winter?...

Let's hope so! We can't wait to see more celebrities trying the look.
