Spooky style: Glee costume designer Lou Eyrich sported a hair-raising look at the Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards yesterday

She is an award-winning costume designer who is famed for her eye-catching creations on hit TV show Glee.

But Lou Eyrich showed off a somewhat different style when she turned up to an awards show yesterday.

The designer sported a rather bizarre head tattoo as she arrived at the Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards in Los Angeles.

The look featured thick strands of black pseudo hair that covered her whole head.
It was a far cry from the more flattering blonde quiff hairstyle she sported back in February.

She topped off the rather strange style with a black dress, sunglasses and a wine coloured parasol, perhaps to protect her bare head from the sun.

Her new style would have made her fit in well as a guest star on Glee's highest rated episode - the Thriller-themed episode drew 27 million viewers which followed on from the Superbowl.

Lou has previously discussed how much she enjoys working on Glee, which has made style icons out of stars such as Dianna Agron and Lea Michele.

'For me, personally, just seeing the effect that it has on people - I've never worked on a show that has brought people so much joy,' she said recently.

'And then also one with more controversial topics that it brings it to the light.

Then again, I think that [show creator] Ryan Murphy is always good at making those social images, social issues come to light in a beautiful way.'

Yesterday, Gwyneth Paltrow represented Glee by taking home an award for Outstanding Best Actress in a Comedy series for her role as teacher Holly Holliday, though she did not attend in person.

HBO's Prohibition-era drama Boardwalk Empire and HBO were the top winners at yesterday's awards which took place at the Nokia Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles.

The event mainly consists of technical categories including picture editing, costuming, hairstyling, makeup, lighting and sound.

Justin Timberlake was named Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for hosting the season finale of Saturday Night Live, while Boardwalk Empire was the top programme after scooping seven gongs.
