When Bella Hadid arrived at this year's Met Gala in *that* catsuit with *that* haircut, it was like Gwyneth Paltrow's "awkward" collarbone-tickling chop all over again. Or was it? Because even with her new shoulder-length bob, she's still doing her usual high, face-lifting pony. Here, pick a winner (or just note the differences) in a showdown of side-by-sides.
Left: Extraordinarily pretty girl who turns heads on the street. Right: Yep, definitely a model, and not the Instagram kind.
The same cut with a bit more lived-in texture alongside that pony, which really does demonstrate its cheekbone-sculpting, face-tightening powers, wow. (Notice how the placement of it lines up protractor-perfectly with her cheek for optimum sculpting.)
Here, we see her lob at its most styled and her up-do transformed into a topknot with the ends left out. Which evening look gets your vote?
A detour to when her hair was long (cute). Same kaiser roll on top of her head (also v. cute).
With sunglasses—and a possible risk of traction alopecia.
It all comes down to the vibe she wants to achieve, really.
Though, as she proves here, either works for day or night—it all depends on the styling.
Or evening and evening.
Day and day.
Now, with bangs...that she can still slick back.
