Cara Delevingne is a woman of her word. The model-turned-actress previously said she would shave her head for her upcoming role in the film Life In A Year, and after teasing a big cut last week by uploading an image of a pile of hair to her Instagram Stories, she first debuted a choppy pixie cut. "I'm coming for you @lifeinayearmovie," she captioned the image. But that was just the beginning.

Delevingne was then seen sporting a bright orange wig on the set of the film just before heading into her trailer and shaving her entire head. She documented the major cut on her Instagram Stories late last week, but then tried to hide her new crop all weekend by covering it with hoodies, baseball caps, and even a pillow. But that didn't stop the paparazzi from catching a small glimpse of her bold new look.

Life In A Year stars Delevingne alongside Jaden Smith, who also transformed his hair for the role. The film follows a 17-year-old boy who learns that his girlfriend is dying and tries to give her a full life in the year they have left together. Delevingne's haircut is obviously an indication of her character's health, and we applaud her for taking on such a dramatic transformation and intense role.
