Is this her way of saying sayonara to Smash?

Amid cancellation rumors, the show’s star Katharine McPhee stepped out with a dramatically different do from the long, glossy curls she wears to play Karen. She’d gone a little shorter last week, but it appears she was ready for a major chop.

You'll Never Guess How Much Katharine McPhee's Golden Globes Dress Cost

Katharine McPhee stunned at the Golden Globe Awards in a revealing Theyskens’ Theory gown — and we assumed that her traffic-stopping dress carried a stunning price tag to go along with it.

Cue the record scratch: McPhee’s low-cut, high-slit super-sexy black number cost just $795 — not exactly pocket change, of course, but it’s just a fraction of what a typical red carpet gown retails for. And considering it was one of the most talked-about dresses all evening, she certainly got a lot of bang for her buck.

If you’re looking to induce a little whiplash of your own, the dress will be available in Theory stores nationwide starting next month. We guarantee that trying this dress on in front of your boyfriend will earn you the best Valentine’s Day plans you’ve ever had. Tell us: Can you believe McPhee’s dress is less than $1,000?

Tabatha's Takeover: Katharine McPhee Should've Just Stayed Home

We all know Tabatha Coffey, Bravo’s sharp-tongued Aussie style pro, from her stint on Shear Genius and her latest hit, Tabatha Takes Over. And now, she’s bringing her talents online, joining us at PEOPLE StyleWatch once weekly to dish on some of the best – and worst – celebrity looks of the week. Keep in mind the opinions below belong solely to the stylist … though she’s probably saying what lots of you are thinking, anyway!

Today, she takes on Katharine McPhee, who selected a printed high-low dress for an NBC TCA panel in Pasadena, Calif.: 

Oh Kat McPhee, you’ve got to be kidding me! What is going on with this outfit?!

At first glance I thought your dress was a chintzy camo print and I immediately was like, “Oh cam-no!,” but now that I look more closely I’m thinking it could be leopard. Actually it doesn’t really matter because it just isn’t working for me. And neither is that length. I think this high-low mullet trend needs to take a break — a very, very long break. Speaking of length, Kat, it looks like you forgot your pants.

Would You Wear a Crayola-Colored Moto Jacket?

Looking for an easy way to add edge to an otherwise plain outfit? Take a cue from Rihanna and Katharine McPhee, who opted to punch up their ensembles with bold moto jackets.

The pop star was snapped wearing a hunter green leather jacket when she landed in Tokyo last week, instantly upgrading her T-shirt, jeans and sneakers.

The Smash actress was spotted in a similar coat, but in a rich blue hue, with a striped midi-dress and cool sneakers on Tuesday in New York City.

If a Crayola-colored coat can transform two mega-stars’ outfits from relaxed to effortlessly cool, we can only imagine what it’ll do for your wardrobe (and ours!), too. Just another trend we’re excited to try this fall.

Which Star's Style Does Katharine McPhee 'Love, Love, Love'?

Time to start a fan club: Katharine McPhee can be added to the list of stars who covet a certain actress’s stellar sense of fashion.

“I love Kate Bosworth’s style,” the Smash star tells PEOPLE. “She always looks classy, but her style [changes]. It’s sometimes hippie, sometimes hipster-edgy and sometimes it’s like a classic Chanel tweed dress paired with a purse. I love, love, love her.”

Want to steal either star’s style? McPhee recommends one designer item worth the splurge: a great bag.

“I would say the most classic piece you can probably buy — even if you get it vintage — is a Chanel shoulder bag,” McPhee shares. “You can dress it up, dress it down — you can wear [it] with jeans, shorts, button-ups.”

Another reason why she loves the iconic purse? It prevents her from carrying around too much junk. “They usually can be a good size where you can fit everything you need, but you’re not going to take excess things,” she explains. Tell us: What was the last big-ticket item you splurged on?

Katharine McPhee has the guts to sing in front of thousands of people, but she just can’t seem to work up the courage to step out wearing a certain item.

“I love those really short short-shorts … the high-waisted ones everyone’s wearing,” she said, but added, “I’m not quite daring enough.”

Speaking to PEOPLE Tuesday at Tide’s unveiling of its artistic rendition of the American flag in New York, McPhee admitted she did have a pair in her arsenal, though. So why hasn’t she broken them out yet? “Mine are a little bit too short!” she shared.

The Smash star — who performed at the Tide event wearing a white jumpsuit by The Hellers, a light-pink Theonne blazer and red Brian Atwood pumps (above) — said New York (where her television show is shot) is constantly inspiring her.
