Gisele Bundchen in Balenciaga's AW14 campaign [WWD]
'Gisele's got a buzz cut!' the Internet squealed when the new Balenciaga campaign dropped on Friday. The black and white ad for Autumn Winter 2014 sees the Brazilian beauty, famous for a mane of golden waves, sitting against a backdrop of shattered mirrors while wearing thigh-high patent boots and showcasing a short, slicked-back 'do. Cor! She looks more cheekboney than ever.
'This is how I see Gisele for Balenciaga; strong, powerful, mysterious and uncompromising,' Alexander Wang, Balenciaga's artistic director, told Women's Wear Daily. Considering Bündchen made a rare catwalk appearance at the French fashion house's show in February and was the face of Spring 2011, it's a fine choice - and the shorn hair brings that all-important badass edge.

But it turns out Gisele's long locks are still in tact. Thanks to the wonders of Instagram, we know that the supermodel is still the golden goddess we know and love. The mother-of-two took to the photo sharing site on Saturday to post a snap of her artfully tousled mane while cheering on Brazil during the World Cup with her hubby and kids.
Considering her hair is somewhat of a signature and has earned her a multimillion-dollar role as the face of Pantene, it's little wonder Gisele didn't actually take the plunge. Whether the Balenciaga barnet is the handiwork of Photoshop or a cleverly-placed wig remains to be seen, but either way we now know she looks awesome with a buzz cut.
