I'm against brown or black hair, I don't think it would match her character, but that is of coure just my personal opinion. I'm thinking, maybe a deep red would be interesting. Not an orange, carrot sort of red, but perhaps a darker shade.
You know, Lewis does
describe has as being a "shining woman" in the Parliament of Owls—you could almost guess that she's standing in a sunbeam falling through the strees when Rilian and Drinian see her. I don't know if we can infer her hair color from that description alone, but blonde is definitely a very reflective and eye-catching hair color. (Of course, you also have shades of black that almost reflect blue-silver, and shining shades of red, et cetera.) For some reason I was thinking that Pauline Baynes' drew her with medium brown hair, but looking back at the illustrations, it appears to be more of a golden blonde.
Maybe a blonde like the medium golden blonde in this chart
? I also like that medium golden brown; it looks like it would be very pretty in direct sunlight.

Seeing that the LotGK uses a different method of controlling people, perhaps they could show it by making her less imposing. Just a thought.
I like that idea! Lewis describes her as being a "tall and great" woman in the description of her at the Parliament of Owls, but it doesn't seem that he was very keen on hiding the villain's identity in The Silver Chair
. The filmmakers, on the other hand, will probably want to make that a twist. The Lady of the Green Kirtle being short and having an elfin look about her will make her reveal as the Queen of Underland all the more shocking.
I don't know if I saw this suggestion here or not, but what about Ginnifer Goodwin? I think she has the coloring to pull off a range of different looks, and she can do the sweet, innocent
act... and slightly more
I think FK
did on the last page? But I agree, she seems like a possibility. I would have an easier time picturing her in the role if her hair was longer, but her facial features seem like they could work for the part.

Quite a lot of fans think that she's not, so casting Tilda would probably stir up some considerable controversy and I'm not sure the filmmakers would want to do that. Douglas Gresham also said
that the LotGK would need to be a new cast when asked if Tilda might come back as the Lady of the Green Kirtle.
(Btw, if you want to discuss that debate, there's a thread
for it in Talk About Narnia.
