Juliette Binoche shows off her extreme pixie cut in St. Tropez: unflattering or cute?

Here are some photos of Juliette Binoche, Jeremy Irons and Hilary Swank two days ago in Saint-Tropez. They were the celebrity attendees at the “official opening” of a new Bulgari store. Clive Owen used to do these paid appearances for Bulgari several times a year. I wonder what happened to his Bulgari deal? WHY AREN’T YOU CLIVE OWEN, HILARY SWANK?! But that’s not the point of this particular story. The point is that Juliette Binoche – who I love and adore as a person and as an actress – has gotten a rather dramatic haircut. This is how her hair looked in February:

Pretty standard, for Juliette. For as long as I’ve been following her career, she usually has shorter hair, which is fine by me because of her magnificent face. Her crazy-beautiful face allows for pretty much any hairstyle she wants. But this… this… what should I call it? And “extreme pixie”? I don’t know about this. I think Juliette may have (GASP) made a styling error. Not only is this unflattering, but it also looks like a really cheap wig.

A few other, random points about these photos:

*It’s impossible to NOT look creepy standing next to creepy Jeremy Irons.

*I love cabochon sapphires. Like, I want to marry them and have cabochon sapphire babies.

*I loathe Juliette’s jumpsuit too. It makes her look so flat-chested and the midsection is a disaster. She has a nice figure, this does nothing for it.

*Is this Hilary Swank’s only paycheck in 2013? How in the world did she get this gig? I imagine Bulgari paid her, of course, but why did Bulgari even ask her to come to this store opening? So weird.

*God, Irons is so creepy. In every photo, he looks like the kind of man who would marry his son. For tax purposes, of course.

    Oh, that isn’t good. It looks like a cheap wig.

    And what has Hillary Swank done to her face? It’s not just me – she looks strange, no?

  2. LibsW says:

    She looks a bit like a monk, without the bald bit around the top! Maybe having a side parting and brushing it over a little to the side would have been better. She can normally do no wrong in my eyes (I love her films) but it doesn’t really do her any favours.

  3. GiGi says:

    You know how some people just have the face for a pixie cut? Yeah. She is not one of them.

    She’s really darling, usually but this haircut makes her look like she’s working at the food co-op in my college town. Very crunchy. Very severe.

  4. Badirene says:

    Love Juliette Binoche, lego haircut and all!

  5. Gina says:

    When bad clothes happen to good people…

    I’ll always love Juliette Binoche (Cathy!), but that hair is horrid. Like a feathered bowl-cut gone terribly wrong…

  6. Micki says:

    I like her February hair more

  7. Aiobhan says:

    I love the hair. The fact that she is wearing a jumpsuit and does not have makeup on is what ruins the outfit. She is better than a jumpsuit. Also, SHE DOES NOT HAVE EYEBROWS!!!! Or have they always been thin like that.

    Jeremy Irons was creepy hot. Now he is just disgusting to me.

  8. bns says:

    Her face is so beautiful I don’t even notice the hair.

    What happened to Hilary Swank’s career?

    • Ctkat1 says:

      Vulture did a “Star Market” on Swank a couple of years ago and one of the Hollywood experts they interviewed nailed the issue with Hilary Swank: she’s a good actress without an audience. Nobody says that Hilary Swank is their favorite actress.
      She’s got 2 Oscars, but she can’t get butts in the theater.

  9. Jess says:

    Not her best, but she still looks pretty. I’m assuming the hair is for a role though. The real issue is her practically invisible eyebrows.

    Hilary looks dreadful. Was she always that skinny?

  10. Mrs. Darcy says:

    All she has to do is sweep it back or to the side and she will be perfection again, just an unfortunate Lego hair styling decision. Weird to see her w/Irons, I will always remember them in the movie Damage together – hot, forbidden Father/daugher in law love – not to mention a young hot Rupert Sanders! He is super creepy now but once he was creepy hot.I think I just set some sort of record for creepy and hot overusage!

  11. Adrien says:

    Juliette can rock the short hair but the mop bangs makes her look like Noel Gallagher.

  12. Micah says:

    She has such beautiful hair, and I love that she wears it short, it suits her. I don’t think this is bad looking on her, it’s just that I LOVE her February hair more….it’s that classic Binoche look!

    Either way, she’s an Awesome actress!

  13. Eleonor says:

    Oh Juliette no!ça ne va pas, pas du tout.
    That sapphire necklace is spectacular!

  14. lem says:

    ummmm she might not look so weird if YOU COULD SEE HER EYEBROWS. the lack of eyebrow creeps me out more than the haircut. good grief who did that to her.

  15. MsLib says:

    She needs to see the stylist that did the cut for the teen daughter on Blue Bloods – Nicole “Nicki” Reagan-Boyle (Sami Gayle). Her cut is severe but really cute and I think it would look good on any age. I have seen it sorter and a little longer. A great cut.

  16. JL says:

    All I can think of is 1st grade and playing with the scissors.

  17. Sabrine says:

    That is one bad hairstyle. I don’t think I’ve seen many worse than this. At least it’s low maintenance for summer.

  18. GeeMoney says:

    Yeesh. She used to look really good. That hairstyle just ages her and makes her look bad.

  19. lella says:

    Thinner eyebrows, short hair/wig? and a weight swing, I wish not, but I have a friend who met the same problems with a clinical condition, hopefully this is not the case.

  20. Ann says:

    With a different outfit, stronger make up and a little hair gel, she would look fab.

    She’s BINOCHE, can do no wrong in my book.

  21. skippy says:

    I do not like that hair cut.
    Makes her look old.
    Grow it out, love.

  22. pao la says:

    I went throught the whole piece thinking she was Isabella Rossellini and then, just at the end i realised she’s not!! Not a good look. no.

  23. Suzy from Ontario says:

    Hate it! Does not flatter her at all imo

  24. Emma says:

    “God, Irons is so creepy. In every photo, he looks like the kind of man who would marry his son. For tax purposes, of course”

    I laughed so hard at this.

  25. Jen34 says:

    I don’t hate the hair, but the clothing and makeup are bad.

  26. Pamela says:

    I love her, but I am not loving her hair here. It is pretty much the reason I would be too terrified to ever
    get a pixie cut. I am convinced that it would look exactly like this on me. (sans the iconically beautiful face of course!)

    The good news is that it won’t take that long to grow it out as she sports shorter styles usually.

  27. Apsutter says:

    I love Juliette but this haircut is horrid. It reminds of that episode of King of Queens where Carrie cuts her hair off and sells it for 3 grand so they can go on vacation but it looks so terrible that Doug is miserable lol

    Oh, here we go! Found a video http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Of5GEWmIANg&desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DOf5GEWmIANg

  28. greenie says:

    A haircut that looks like a bad wig and the eyebrows…maybe chemo?

  29. Kaligula says:

    It’s almost unanimous, the haircut is all ways wrong. But then it is Juliette, she is a risk taker. She probably likes that it looks a bit off….

    Hilary’s outfit is so weird. Looks like something a very sheltered person would choose to wear upon being given her first opportunity to visit the big city….

  30. Dinah says:

    Swank’s expression leaves me wondering where The Creeper has placed his hand…

  31. M79 says:

    This isn’t really new, Juliette has had short hair in the past and wears it well. In fact, she had short hair in ‘Damage’, which she filmed with Jeremy Irons (very racy movie). It’s all in how her hair is styled. Not sure why all the hate for short hair… or Hilary Swank, for that matter.

  32. LAK says:

    ….but Kaiser, have you seen Max Irons??? mui caliente!!!!


    And he is tall too. 6ft 2in.

  33. LexieW says:

    Oh dear… she looks like a Vulcan extra from Star Trek. No good.

  34. Janet says:

    Love the pixie cut. I have one just like it.

    Hilary Swank looks like Seattle Slew.

    Jeremy Irons gives me major creeps. He looks like something growing on the side of a tree trunk.

  35. Kiddo says:

    Has no one else noticed those shoes which make it appear as if she has colossal white feet, with toes dangling off the front edge? They are drawing my eyes away from the haircut, and not in a good way.

  36. YuYa says:

    She looks like a monchichi. My STBXH also has this monchichi hair. I hate it and it is not flattering on anyone. Swipe the bangs to the side or something!

  37. mimi says:

    I was hoping that was a wig. She’s still beautiful even with a really bad haircut.

  38. Mia says:

    This is extremely unflattering. Halle Berry has a fantastic pixie cut. This just looks like she cut it herself, in the dark.

  39. DN says:

    I think it could be much more attractive if it was thinned out and styled differently. She has such a pretty face. As it is in these pictures it reminds me of that Friends episode when Phoebe cut Monica’s hair and Phoebe confused Monica’s request for hair like “Demi Moore” for “Dudley Moore”.

  40. homegrrl says:

    on an american it would be “patient on a day pass” hair. but she’s french. so any wierd off thing is considered, and is, “chic”.

  41. Tanya_ says:

    Hilary Swank looks tacky next to Juliette.
    I love how Juliette isn’t wearing too much make up.
    I honestly thought it was the premiere of their next film and I got really excited until I discovered it was from Bulgari

  42. taxi says:

    No, Juliette. Give it to Swank.

  43. Mabs says:

    It’s just a flat-out awful pic all the way around. All three could look way better. It looks tossed together at the last possible second.
