Catherine Zeta-Jones's Blunt Bangs: Are You Loving Her Look?

We’ve been fooled by bangs before (clip-ins are so popular, as you know from Kim Kardashian and Mindy Kaling), but no need to be skeptical this time: Catherine Zeta-Jones‘s fringe is the real deal. The actress debuted her new hair look for the first time on the carpet Thursday, and we almost didn’t recognize the star.

That’s probably because Zeta-Jones didn’t go for a subtle side bang or some piecey wisps. She went for a heavy, blunt straight across style that covers her eyebrows (and almost her eyeballs). It also looks like she also trimmed few inches from her long dark brown strands. The actress kept the rest of her beauty look simple with a brick-red lip and soft smoky eye to go with her plunging black dress.

And the star’s hair isn’t the only buzz surrounding her right now. She was joined on the carpet (for opening night of The Library in NYC) by husband Michael Douglas, marking the first time the the couple has attended an event together since deciding to re-evaluate their marriage last June.

“It is so easy to just give up,” a longtime family friend tells PEOPLE. “But they wanted to put in the work. I’m really happy for them.”

We hope the new look celebrates a new chapter for the actress. Are you a fan of her fringe? Share your thoughts below.

Loose the bangs!

Almost no one looks good in bangs. No exception here. Turned a beautiful woman into blah.

KiKi on

She just added 10 years to her goreous face. Grow them out fast Catherine.

Sharon on

Yes, love them. I would maybe trim them just a hair and poof up the top a bit

She’s a natural beauty. I think she has great eyes though and it’s too bad they are mostly hidden now! Bangs or no bangs, she looks good though.

I’ve said this so many times, but women over the age of 12 do not look good with bangs! Why do they always make this mistake? Catherine was much more attractive before the bangs, which I’m sure that she will discover soon.

Lose the bangs Catherine, they make you look older and not as attractive as your previous photos.

Julie on

She is one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood.
