Can haircuts be contagious? Shortly after walking in the Moschino fashion show with a newly-bobbed Katy Perry, Rita Ora made her Milan new do debut with a similarly short and sassy chop.

The star is known for mixing it up style-and-beautywise, but she has been rocking the same Marilyn Monroe-inspired peroxide-blonde waves for a while now (of course, she’s had a little help in the length department, but it’s been her look for some time). But apparently she was ready to shed the extensions and go shorter than before, because she teamed up with “genius” stylist Chris Appleton for a choppy, piecey new do.

PHOTOS: Obsessed or hot mess? Vote on these daring star styles!

Since posting that picture over the weekend, Ora has already had a ton of fun with her sexy new bob. She’s worn it super-messy on stage, sleek and sultry while out with pals, with her hair bangs combed forward, back and to the side, and much more — just check her Instagram for all the bob hair inspiration you can handle.

We’ve seen a lot of hairstyles on Ora, but this may be our favorite — it feels super fresh and very versatile. What do you think? Are you a fan or did you like her longer look?

Oh My Goshhhhhh … Why are we not stating the obvious?? Clearly she just took her extensions out.

Carolyn on

I don’t think that anyone knows of any of her music, and probably the only reason why she is relevant, and is still mentioned on this site is because she once dated Robert Kardashian Jr.

If it wasn’t for that, I highly doubt that anyone would know who she is.
