These days, you might not even recognize "American Idol" alum Katharine McPhee, who's best known for belting out songs like "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" in a wardrobe of girly gowns, her wavy brown tresses flowing behind her. But that's understandable, because the woman who inspires "McPhever" is now a (gasp!) platinum blonde, with a cropped cut that she says has influenced her to reach for edgier ensembles and pay more attention to the oh-so-fickle world of fashion. In this episode of "The Thread," the singer/actress chats about her new album out in January, Unbroken, and -- more importantly for stylewatchers like us -- her transition from sweet brunette to blonde bombshell.
