Hair Trend Alert: The Pixie Cut

Pixie Cut Trend

When Beyonce chopped off her hair last week, it was one of the most shocking celebrity haircuts in quite a while. In all honesty, the cut was likely a combination of removing extensions and cutting some hair, but the results were surprisingly (Sasha) Fierce, and I’m excited to see Queen Bey rock her shorter ‘do–especially since many people associate her entire persona with her gorgeous long hair.

And right on Mrs. Carter’s heels was another dramatic hair change: Model Coca Rocha cut her mid-length tresses into a edgy cut–super short around the sides with a bit more length on the top. Keeping the extra length on the top will allow for lots of variety at photoshoots (as Coco has already revealed via Instagram), and the shorter length shows off the model’s striking bone structure far more than her previous look.

By cutting off their locks, these two ladies have joined the ranks of stars who have dared to go super short.

Robin Wright has been rocking a pixie for about a year now, and she showed off her low maintenance crop once again this week on the red carpet.

And Ginnifer Goodwin, who has one of the most famous (and long-lasting) pixie cuts in Hollywood loves her short cut so much that she actually writes it into her filming contracts–she gets to keep the hair short and wear wigs for roles!

To keep your own pixie looking chic day after day, use Short Sexy Hair Quick Change Shaping Balm to create a style that is easily reactivated the next day, and to shape your hair and hold it in place, Oscar Blandi’s Pronto Dry Sculpting Pomade is a great option. If it’s moisture and shine you want, try Carol’s Daughter Mimosa Hair Honey.

So what do you think? Are all these ladies rocking the short hair, or do you prefer them with longer locks?

‘Ain’t Them Bodies Saints’ ‘Downtown’ Calvin Klein New York Screening

Calvin Klein

As the hosts of the ‘Ain’t Them Bodies Saints’ screening, along with IFC Films and The Cinema Society, Calvin Klein dressed the other attendees aside from Rooney Mara.

Robin Wright: The actress snuggled up to her beau wearing head-to-toe black.

Ben Foster: Rooney’s co-star grabs my attention in this eggplant peaked-lapel one-button Calvin Klein suit for both the colour and sheen. He styled it with a light-grey shirt.

Melissa George: The blonde beauty looked gorgeous wearing a Calvin Klein seafoam-green cowl-neck loose-fit dress, which she styled with a silver-trimmed Calvin Klein clutch and nude sandals. I love everything about this – mostly the effortlessness of it all.

Zosia Mamet: Also dressed in Calvin Klein, the ‘Girls’ actress took a more laidback approach to the evening, wearing a blue silk shirt with leather pants. I considered giving her a rare pass, despite the racoon eyes, but the white shoes are heinous with this look.

Robin Wright In Rolando Santana Atelier – 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Robin Wright In Rolando Santana Atelier - 2013 White House Correspondents' Association

‘House of Cards’ actress Robin Wright must have been laughing at the ‘House of Nerds’ spoof video that opened the 2013 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in Washington, D.C.

Yesterday evening, she wore a navy Rolando Santana Spring 2013 Atelier stretch matte taffeta gown.

At certain angles, the ‘Sonja’ dress’s feminine ruffle, asymmetric neckline just looked like her shoulder strap had fallen down.

But it still won points in my book, as it softened the edgy appeal of Robin’s uber-cropped blonde pixie ‘do.

She kept her makeup minimal (a bronzing glow worked just fine) and her accessories on the light side, with a conservative pair of Ivanka Trump diamond earrings and bracelet and a silver Cecelia clutch.

Robin Wright In Ralph Lauren – ‘House of Cards’ Netflix Original Series Launch

Robin Wright In Ralph Lauren - ‘House of Cards’ Netflix Original Series Launch

Robin Wright joined Kate Mara on the red carpet for the launch of Netflix Original Series ‘House of Cards’ in London yesterday evening.

Sporting a pixie cut, the actress looked very statuesque wearing a Ralph Lauren Spring 2013 gown.

The black-and-ivory halter gown, with a satin top accented with black buttons and black embroidered corset-like detail at the waist, was simply styled with Stuart Weitzman ‘Victoria’ black peep-toes and stud earrings.

The fit of the top of the gown prevents me from loving the look. A few minor adjustments would’ve perfected it.

Robin must have been freezing, considering its been cold enough to snow in the capital, but she shows no signs of it on the red carpet.

Robin Wright In Elie Saab Couture – 2011 Doha Tribeca Film Festival

Robin Wright glided down the red carpet at the 2011 Doha Tribeca Film Festival in Qatar on Saturday night.

She opted to wear an Elie Saab Spring 2007 Couture gown from the designer’s archives.

The black strapless tulle gown was worn with a drape detail on one shoulder which cascades down her back into a flowing train.

Robin opted to go light on the jewels and she didn’t carry a clutch to allow the focus to be on her dramatic black gown.

Glossy pink lips and side-sweeping bangs completed her look.

Robin Wright In Gucci – 2011 Gucci Award For Women In Cinema

Robin Wright attended the 2011 Gucci Award for Women in Cinema event at Hotel Cipriani this past Friday.

The actress, who is a Juror at the event, chose a stunning Gucci Resort 2012 gold sequin-embroidered georgette gown.
She sparkled on the red carpet, adding Gucci accessories including gold sequin evening sandals, a black suede clutch with gold leather trim, an 18 karat yellow gold horsebit bracelet with brown diamonds and a matching yellow gold ring.
Robin finished her look by wearing her cropped blonde hair swept across her forehead and adding a touch of pink lipgloss.

She looks beautiful in this dress, which reminds me of liquid gold.

I like that she opted not to wear the oversized floral brooch like the model. It’s gorgeous enough as it is.

Who Wore Vivienne Westwood Better? Thandie Newton or Robin Wright

Thandie Newton wore this sophisticated Vivienne Westwood Red Label Spring 2011 tailored grey suit whilst out promoting her movie “For Colored Girls” back in October last year.

Managing to score the outfit just weeks after it walked the runway at London Fashion Week, Thandie looks impossibly chic, adding red studded Stella McCartney heels and a brown suede Miu Miu tote.

Her makeup is flawless and she is simply glowing. I love how the suit fits her so perfectly and that her accessories add some oomph to the grey.

Robin Wright recently wore the same suit to the Washington DC Premiere of her movie “The Conspirator” and what a contrast.

The jacket is very ill-fitting and the pants don’t seem to taper as well on her as they did on Thandie. Paired with nothing but basic black pointed heels, Robin’s look is extremely lack-lustre. I also find the outfit to be a bit of an odd choice for a red carpet premiere.

For me, there’s no question about who the winner is here. Thandie gets it spot on with a better fit, fresh makeup, a chic hairdo and eye-catching accessories. Robin, on the other hand, failed to hit the mark. It’s extremely hard to see past such a poor fit and it doesn’t help that she made zero attempts to jazz up her look with great accessories.
