a new look

Amanda Bynes is showing off a dramatically different look. Like, really different.

Amanda Bynes tweets a new look

Is that Amanda Bynes or Nicki Minaj?

That's seriously the reaction we had when we saw the TwitPic Bynes posted over the weekend. In the shot, the She's All That star shows off an obvious curly blond wig, heavy fake lashes and nude lips — along with the cheek piercing she got earlier this year.

"Wink," she wrote with the shot.

She looks good, but we definitely prefer the healthy and happy Bynes — like the one in the photo here.

The post is just another chapter in the weird, sad saga of the former Nickelodeon star. Most recently, she talked about her desire to drop 20 pounds off her already-thin frame.

"I gain weight quickly so I need to work out constantly," she told US Weekly earlier this year. "I moved to New York City and I love it! I lost 4 lbs. since I moved. I'm 121 lbs — my goal is 100 lbs."

The problem? That would put the 5-foot-8-inch star at a seriously unhealthy BMI of 15. Let's hope someone can get through to her.

As for what else she's doing these days? Apparently she's getting into the fashion work.

"I am retired as an actor," she told People last fall. "I am moving to New York to launch my career. I am going to do a fashion line."

Maybe the Minaj look is a preview of what we can expect from her as a designer? C'mon girl, we're ready for your Britney Spears-esque comeback!
