Rose Byrne's Haircut Was Inspired by 'Scarface'

Rose Byrne gave us a lot to look at during Sunday night’s Screen Actors Guild Awards: her gorgeous face, for one, but also her interesting white jumpsuit and face-framing bob. So we had to ask: What was the story behind her look?

“I tried this on a couple of years ago,” Byrne told PEOPLE of her glimmering Elie Saab jumpsuit. “I loved it for an event and it just didn’t end up being the one that I wore. But I always had it in my mind.”

Once she decided she wanted to wear pants to the SAGs, Byrne called up her stylist, Penny Lovell, who immediately knew which look to pull. “[She] was like, ‘How about that great jumpsuit we tried on from Elie Saab?'” Byrne recalled. “And I was like, ‘Oh that? Let’s go!’ So that was it. I love jumpsuits.”

Though Byrne’s bob was somewhat old news by comparison — she first cut it several months ago — the actress had the look freshened by John Frieda stylist Harry Josh before the awards (her makeup was by Joe Fresh Beauty). “Just yesterday, he did another cut and he did the back and then he did the bangs again,” she explained during the SAG Awards Gala at the Shrine Auditorium. “It’s Scarface-inspired. It’s like Scarface meets Anna Wintour.” Tell us: What did you think of Byrne’s look?
