Lake Bell Brings Back Blunt Bangs with New Do

When fashion-forward actress Lake Bell decided to change up her look, she was searching for a style that was truly timeless. So the brunette beauty traded in her sleek straight locks in favor of the trendy, yet always classic blunt bang, which she debuted on Tuesday at the Decades Denim launch party in Beverly Hills. “It’s really fun. It’s good to, you know, look in the mirror and try to be different people,” the It’s Complicated actress told PEOPLE. “What’s interesting about it is that you can be any decade. You can make it look ’80s, ’90s, ’70s–it’s very versatile.” As for the change, Bell said, “I did it a couple of days ago. I was just kind of like, ‘I am going to do this because I can.’ There was no good reason.” And with her revamped hairstyle, Bell was also looking to update her denim wardrobe. Clad in Decades Denim charcoal skinny jeans, Bell had nothing but praise for the new brand. “They’re a sleek, clean design, very chic, very wearable and not too tight,” said Bell. “There’s not a lot of stuff and when jeans start having a lot of pockets and special things then it becomes something else and the jeans start upstaging you.” Not that the chic star is prone to trends. “Even though it’s fun to kind of get obsessed with the trend I try hard to be respectful of the trend from afar,” said Bell. “Certainly bangs are kind of in, so I was like, ‘all right, I accept that,’ but I also wanted them.” –Michelle Ward

I have bangs, and they are great when they want to be. They really have a life of their own sometimes. If your bangs don’t come out right, then your entire look suffers. Hats are my heros. lol

Do you know what style of jeans those are? I’m on the Decades Denim site and can’t figure it out. They’re cute!

Those arent the cutest jeans at all. They look like something that you would get at a yard sale. And they don’t look good on her either, yes they do look too tight and two sizes too small. grow up and put on some jeans that fit you. the hair isn’t what i was expecting. the story headlines makes it seem like we are going to see something really glamorous or something, she’s just another person like any one else on the street as far as the look goes, so what’s the headline about? and personally I have never heard of her just like most of the people that are “stars” these days. gheesh

What’s with the headline? Lake Bell is bringing back blunt bangs? Blunt bangs were back before Bell decided to jump on the bandwagon, and the article admits as much. Lame.
