It’s officially a trend! Rachel McAdams is the latest star to add bangs to her hairstyle, debuting the look at the Los Angeles premiere of The Vow (sponsored by Ralph Lauren Romance) Monday night. The star stepped out in a sky-blue Vivienne Westwood dress and glimmering jewels, complementing her look with smoky eyes, red lips and her new blonde bangs.

McAdams joins a growing list of leading ladies who’ve added bangs to their hair recently, including Jessica Biel, Rose Byrne, Cameron Diaz (sometimes), Olivia Wilde, Kim Kardashian (who tried clip-ons) and Reese Witherspoon, who cut them to cover a forehead scar. Kelly Clarkson rocked them during the Super Bowl, and Sarah Michelle Gellar added a few face-framing bangs recently, as well.

We think McAdams always looks lovely, but want to hear your thoughts.

She could be bald and she would still look beautiful!

Sunny on

No. They age her.

Nichele on

I love the bangs! They accent her face beautifully.

Trazey on

eeeek she looks like a Real Housewife in that pic, hate the bangs they age her 10 years!!

Sarafina on

Not a fan of super-long bangs that cover the brow and eyelid anyway on anyone. So no, I don’t like them on her!

JBean on

She looks like an older Drew from X-Factor!

Huss on

They are totally fake!!! Not even the same colour as her own hair.

Jester on

Bangs look good on some people, but I don’t think they work on Rachel. Looking closely at the photograph, I bet they are clip ons because the colour does not match at all.

marty on

I think she looks SO much better as a brunette – why does everyone have to go blonde – it washes her natural coloring out.

Finn on

What makes you think they’re real?

Jimmy on

If you don’t like her bangs, don’t worry, she’s a woman and will change her hairstyle 10 times in the next year.

kath on

bangs are too heavy

Kelly on

Shes beautiful any way!

Donna on

I think it’s a hairpiece. They are a different color than the rest of her hair.

She’s beautiful no matter what she does.

jodie on

I think she looks so horrible! The dark lips the hair the thin frame. I was just pointing this out to my spouse saying how bad she looks. YIKES!

What happened to her? She use to be so beautiful. She has the same look that all the young Hollywood actress have now. I call it the Joker look. Where their mouths are pulled back and are forced to smile. She ruined her beautiful face. These bangs don’t help. It makes her look way to harsh. Why do these young girls do this to themselves. She looks like she’s in her 40’s instead of her 30’s. She was so beautiful in the Notebook.

This girl can do no wrong, she is adorable

cynlee on

I love her. Her bangs look good, but the lipstick and hair color should be toned down.

Bella on

Who is she?

mom2three on

Not a fan of any type of bangs but I still LOVE Rachel McAdams :)!

Danielle on

She looks much older. Not a good change for her.

Naomi on

These are those clip on bangs. They don’t even match the rest of her hair. No worries people… it isn’t permanent.

Alex on

I like her no matter what. That woman is my goddess. We need more like her and less Kardashians.

JungleCat on

I have never liked full across the forehead bangs on anybody. Not flattering hairstyle. Looks too medieval. Like English Monarch ages or the Cleopatra age.

Anita on

It makes her look so much older. She was beautiful the way she was.

Lynn King on

The hair looks fine, but she seems REALLY skinny. She has joined all the other anorexic actresses who think that being rail thin is beautiful…..very sad.

Ceci on

I think the problem here is her hair color. When will people learn that blonde doesn’t flatter everyone??? She looks OLD. If she colors her hair dark brown, then those bangs will look good.

The bangs don’t age her. The bangs are ok. It’s her very pale matte skin with the black liner and red lips that ages her. It’s much too harsh for her blond hair and fair skin!
