Paula Patton Cuts Her Hair Into a Bob

No “Blurred Lines” here: actress (and wife of Robin Thicke) Paula Patton has gone for a decisively short and sleek chop. The Baggage Claim star debuted her chic new bob at the Independent Spirit Awards Tuesday, and we think it’s one of her best-ever looks.

Though there’s no denying she’s stunning no matter what length of hair she likes to wear, Patton’s tendency to love super-tight, supershort outfits combined with her glamorous bombshell waves sometimes made her red carpet looks feel a little over-the-top. But here, her bob plays off her second-skin white mini to make her look modern, sophisticated and unexpectedly sexy.

PHOTOS: See the best star hair from every angle!

Adding to the sex appeal of her new do: A clean, classic cat eye, glossy red lips and dangling diamond earrings. We can only imagine how Robin Thicke will react to this new look (actually, we already know: it’s probably something very steamy).

What do you think of Patton’s short new cut? Are you loving it as much as we are?

She is attractive woman, so long or short, does not matter. This is a very classy cut also, and she can have fun with it.

Beautiful either way.

All scissors should be confiscated from Hollywood stylists immediately! Enough with the short hair. This must be Robin’s penance for terking with Miley. No glam! She looks like an old 40 something soccer mom now.

I don’t mean this to sound hateful, because she seems to be a really classy, lovely woman…but does it look like her face changed after she gave birth to her son? Her face has looked so masculine ever since. It’s bizarre. The shorter cut doesn’t help.

She needs to lighten up.

The photo might not do the haircut justice but the shorter hair gives her a more masculine look.

I normally love short hair but I like her long hair better. But she’s gorgeous anyway,so………
