We’ve seen our fair share of celebs totally transforming their look with just a simple snip, but that doesn’t mean we’re not still amazed by what a difference bangs can make. And when independent film star Maggie Gyllenhaal worked glam new bangs at last night’s Elton John-hosted opening for luxe jeweler Chopard’s new flagship store in N.Y.C., the jewels weren’t the only things that left us dazzled. We’ve always admired the new mom‘s edgy style and love how this new look frames her face. But we want to know what you think. Tell us: do you like Maggie better with bangs? Or did you like her without bangs?

I have nothing against this actress. I strongly suggest she go back to the other way that she looked. The way she doesn’t have alot of makeup on and she really doesn’t have bangs in her face. I just don’t think the other look is for her. She isn’t bad looking, but this new look for her is definitely not a keeper. Please go back to your other look, it does you more justice I think.

I like Maggie better without bangs.

The picture on the left expresses what she should look like. Her make-up is done much better, and she has a great complextion on her, plus she still looks fresh looking.

Maggie looks really tired looking in the picture on the right. Her make-up is done badly; the eyeliner lining the bottom of her eyes is horrible looking on her, the black is way too bold and just makes her eyes look like huge tired almonds, with an almost deer in the headlights look, she looks so much better when her make-up is done in a pleasantly understated natural way, and there is no nice vibrant skin color on her, although I’m NOT saying she looks bad with bangs, but I just prefer her without them.

Also, the picture on the left of Maggie, really reminds me of a Katie Holmes {I don’t know if anyone else sorta notices}. Maggie’s eyes are gorgeous by the way.

Well, I kind of like the hairstyle. It’s cute and WOULD make her look a bit younger if her face wasn’t looking so haggard in the picture on the right. I’m going to chalk that up to bad lighting and eyeliner. Thumbs up on the ‘do though!

I really think that Maggie’s hair looks like a mop. She needs it thinned out and layered. She does have bright eyes but the liner doesn’t do her much good. She really needs a makeover. The first picture looks best.

I think she looks better without the bangs. catty: I agree with you in the sense that she isn’t a classic beauty or the prototype for a glamour model, but I loved the Agent Provocateur ads with her. It’s nice to know that there are many kinds of sexy, and a gal doesn’t need to look like a Playmate to look sexy in lingerie.
