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?

I think she looks cute! She has the hair for it.

Maria on

She’s such a beauty, but that haircut does nothing for her face.

Sabrina Newman on

While she is still a beautiful woman, this ages her greatly.

kim on

horrible. her hair stylist should be fired.

sara on

I like the cut, but I don’t like the color.

sunnyd on

Very cute!

erin on

Oh wow. No, this is a bad look on her. At first glance I would have assumed she was in her 40s! Definitely not flattering at all.

Nikita on


nice on

It’s nice if she wanted to look old.

Jane on

Why are women constantly being criticized because they want change? It’s never like this with male celebrities. She looks fine! It’s definitely must be difficult being a female celebrity in the public eye. It’s not just People, but everywhere!
