….it's only Evan Rachel Wood! We've been left aghast since clapping eyes on the once red head actress at last night's True Blood season 4 premiere working this drastic new look.
Her brand new punky 'do is reminding us of an early 90s Sharon Stone with a side order of Halle Berry sharpness, not least because Evan's teamed it with a masculine waistcoat suit with umm, braces. As for the flick-ey, highlighted style, it has us recalling past Beckham quiffs (of the his and hers variety). Plus, the look isn't unlike the boy-girls we saw stomping down Dolce & Gabbana's A/W'11 catwalk for last February's Milan Fashion Week, remember?
We should hardly be surprised at the brave change considering Evan has long been known for her irreverent ways. She first caught our attention as the Lolita-like girl who may or may not have caused Marilyn Manson's split from Dita von Teese. Then she was cast as Gucci's heroine of choice for their latest fragrance campaign thanks to, according to Frida Giannini, her 'bewitchingly animated and vivacious charisma'. Ooh err. And lest we forget her recent turn as Kate Winslet's minxy daughter in Mildred Pierce, which was quite frankly brilliant.
What's more, E-R-W (as we like to call her) is fast proving herself to be a bona fide beauty chameleon. Seriously, she looks different like, every time we see her, no? From crystal clear porcelain skin + jet black hair in her goth days, to an on-trend red head for her role as Queen Vamp in True Blood, then going golden and glowing for Gucci, we're starting to wonder whether this girl is on the run from the police, or something?!
But we want to hear your thoughts, beauty fans. Are you loving or loathing Ms Wood's new look? Let us know below!
