Confession: We had no idea who this star was when we first spotted the photo to the left. But after a second glance, we realized that it’s Evangeline Lilly from Lost!

The actress debuted a super-short haircut with side-swept bangs and chunky golden highlights at the premiere of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in Wellington, New Zealand on Tuesday.

Lilly reportedly got the ‘do a while ago, but kept it mum until Tuesday, when it made its first red carpet appearance. It’s definitely a major change from the voluminous long brown locks she donned during her time on her hit show.

But Lilly isn’t the only star to get bangs this week: the Duchess of Cambridge is also showing off some new face-framing fringe. Tell us: What do you think of Lilly’s dramatic hair makeover?

Huge mouth..

Why did she do this to her practically perfect head of hair? She not only is hard to recognize, she looks a good deal older.

I think she is one of the most gorgeous people – but this is bad! The chunky color makes it much worse than it probably would be otherwise.

Eek, grow it back! It ages her dramatically.

heather on

she has a beautiful face but I agree with Sabrina, this hairstyle ages her…she is still a stunning woman though

I think it’s cute but the bangs do age her a bit.I don’t like blonde mixed in with brown.It makes me think of peanut butter and chocolate lol.I liked the long hair but it is her choice :)

Whoa! Not a fan. She looks MUCH older and it does nothing for her face. Poor choice. The makeup isn’t helping. Not that much of a fan of the Duchess of Cambridge’s new 70’s style haircut either, though she still looks lovely. .

I agree that the cut ‘ages’ her – most people look older with shorter hair. However, she still looks pretty…. and it would a lot better in a different color.

this haircut really ages her

Ugonna Wosu on

she’s still gorgeous, but not the best style, colour or makeup.
