Evan Rachel Wood in D&G, with new hair: fug drag king or lovely?


I used to not care much for Evan Rachel Wood, but she’s grown on me considerably over the past year. While I still think her love life is sketchy (Marilyn Manson, etc), I also think she’s one of best young actresses working today, and more than anything, I want her to continue to do good work and grow into a more confident woman who dates men who are good for her. These are photos of ERW at last night’s “premiere” of the new season of True Blood. ERW wore this odd Dolce & Gabbana ensemble which… eh. She’s the face of Gucci’s Guilty, so I guess she’s trying to mix it up. I think it’s a little obvious, though – she just got a short new haircut and color, so why go full-on drag king with a menswear-inspired ensemble?

As for the hair… look at this:


It’s a cute, choppy little cut, and she’s poofed out the top part, like she’s David Bowie or something. It’s going to be hell to grow out, but with that face… maybe it will work without being awkward.

Sigh… I always wonder, when a young girl suddenly chops off her hair, whether it’s a reflection of some kind of turmoil in her personal life. Yes, sometimes it’s just about needing a change, or simply liking an easy little haircut. But this is Evan… she’s got plenty of drama. We’ll find out soon enough, I think.

    I like it and it looks good on her.

  2. gee says:

    I love the whole look. Sometimes I wish I could just chop all my hair off.

  3. LOVE ANGELINA says:

    Hmmmm I loves it. Its utterly chic and fab. I think she looks cute. Love the hair too. Plus she is working it. Look at the confidence on her face.

  4. Green Is Good says:

    LOVE her hair!

  5. munchies says:

    no bra… and she look so pretty…

  6. normades says:

    Oh I hate it. The hair, the suspenders. And I love ERW.

  7. sunseeker says:

    Same here, love the hairstyle, wish I could find a hairdresser good enough to cut my hair like that.

  8. Ell says:

    She looks fab. Love the way her new haircut enhances her beautiful face, her skin is flawless.

  9. Delta Juliet says:

    I don’t care for her one way or the other, but that is one pretty girl. What a gorgeous face.

    And I love the hair too! I wish I could pull it off!

  10. Pyewacket says:

    HATE IT!

  11. EF says:

    Some may like her, some may hate her but ERW actually works as an actress and not as a clothes or promo horse. Some candids from time to time, but that’s about it. Also this year she had Mildred Pierce, movie with Redford and Clooney movie is coming out at venice festival. So my hat is off to her. I love her haircut and outfit she is wearing. It’s youthful, chic and somehow fresh. I think she was the best dressed from all TB cast.

  12. Fabianne says:

    I think it totally works for her.

  13. Melanie says:

    I love it!

  14. Hazel says:

    ewwwwwww no!!

  15. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    Mowhawk, vest with no shirt underneath and red suspenders; replace the heels with a pair of steel tipped combat boots, and it’s totally punk. Guess she’s going for punk chic?

  16. Rose says:

    She looks a little like Lucy Lawless in the header pic. Cute.

  17. Ann says:

    Short hair on a woman is sexy. She looks great.

  18. almond says:

    While I think short hair works on very few women, I kind of like in her. It certainly goes with the rest of the ensemble.

  19. Hollowdoll says:

    Drag King Fug? Really?! She should be so lucky as to look like the Drag Kings I’ve seen. I think she looks great. The hair style is sassy and fun. That outfit is so much better than what most celebs wear.

  20. fabgrrl says:

    Hot. When someone is young and pretty they can actually do a look like that, so go for it, ERW!

  21. MSat says:

    She is gorgeous and her face really rocks the short ‘do.

  22. dread pirate cuervo says:

    I’d like it better if her hair was slicked back, but I love the vest & suspenders.

  23. bluhare says:

    She looks like Tatum O’Neal.

  24. 4Real says:

    She looks like Julie Andrews! She’s too young for this look.

  25. JuJuBee says:

    Love it! She looks so fresh and funky. How fun!

  26. Mia says:

    I thought she looked fantastic. It’s a great cut & the suit is sexy & flirty. I wonder if ASkars looks at her and wonders what the hell am I doing w/ the Bos because I know that’s my thought process.

  27. Denver Danni says:

    Save the suspenders, I think she looks adorable. Fresh faced, no dark goth anger mad cap make-up. Having said that, her quote makes me want to dry horf on her cute look:

    “I grew up in love with David Bowie. So I was always into very androgynous things. Guys, girls… I’m into androgyny in general. I’m constantly changing, I’m constantly growing. I think I’m a little controversial? I just try and keep some mystery, so hopefully people can’t really put their finger on it.”

    She was born in 1987, she grew-up with Saved by the Bell RERUNS.

  28. Cheyenne says:

    @Delta Juliet: Go for it. I cut my hair off short like hers 20 years ago and never looked back. It’s positively liberating.

  29. Bitchbelying says:

    She’s beautiful…

  30. Mikki says:

    Love the look! I have short hair too, and it’s refreshing to see an actress go with something other than usual cookie-cutter Barbie long hair look.

  31. lee says:

    LOVE IT!

    this sounds cliché, but I know for me and a lot of other girls, I chopped my hair off shortly after coming out. I’m still pretty girly, but it was a liberating way of letting go of my previous self while also making myself slightly more visible as queer. Evan came out as bisexual a month or so ago and from her interviews, I get the impression she is throwing herself headfirst into the lady love. Which is totally normal if she’s been with men up until now and wants to explore this new side of herself.

    anyways, just my thoughts, but she’s rocking the suit and the hair in any case.

  32. tanya says:

    I think it looks sexy on her.

    However, speaking from experience, that haircut will be H.E.L. to the L. to grow out!

    Still, she rocks it.

  33. phlyfiremama says:

    She looks awesome~what I love about her is she NEVER looks the same, every time I see her in pictures she looks different. I like that.

  34. ZenB says:

    She’s very pretty but I hate all hair like that. FUG!

  35. lucy2 says:

    I kind of like it, I think she pulls it off well.

  36. mew says:

    At least she’s not trying to be the New Dita von Teese anymore. That was so tired routine.

  37. bigchili says:

    I think she looks great. And I too wonder how Askars went from ERW to Bos. wrong. wrong. wrong.

  38. Reece says:

    Wow she looks amazing.

  39. Mama Chihuahua says:

    She has a BEAUTIFUL face (and body too, dangit!) It works!

  40. blackblackblack says:

    Super short cuts make some girls look cuter or edgier, depending on the details. But still more girls look older and boring with this cut, like Evan. She needs a new color if she’s keeping this cut.

  41. June says:

    “Sigh… I always wonder, when a young girl suddenly chops off her hair, whether it’s a reflection of some kind of turmoil in her personal life.
    …But this is Evan… she’s got plenty of drama. We’ll find out soon enough, I think.”

    Oh Man! I totally LOLed! Only because I’ve been feeling that way heehee

    I dont think the haircut compliments her face. whatever

  42. Rachael says:

    Dude, she can’t act. I hate her in true blood.

  43. Vicky says:

    The cut doesn’t necessarily look bad but it does age her about 15 years.

  44. theotheryael says:

    love it. love. it. i think i found my new hair inspiration.

  45. cracker says:

    i see she is morphing into someone else again…hayden paniettiere wanna be!

  46. lolalola says:

    Oh CB! How can you? She’s UNBEARABLE in True Blood. Just wretched! I don’t get why she is even still getting work as an actress.

  47. Mairead says:

    I think she looks very chic as well. I like the outfit too and the hair. I’d like a slightly punchier colour, but still it’s very adaptable and really shows off her bone structure.

  48. Becca B says:

    I love Evan and she´s very pretty, but this haircut just won´t do.

  49. Sloane Wyatt says:

    @lolalola and @rachael: check her out in ‘Mildred Pierce’ and ‘The Wrestler’ (which sucks IMO but still she’s great in it), and you will see a tremendously, Meryl Streep level, talented actress. You won’t be sorry to watch ‘Mildred Pierce’ with Kate Winslet also delivering major acting chops.

    Ms. Wood in TB is like Streep in ‘Mama Mia’ – you can’t judge her true ability from a ridiculously campy role.

    And, yeah, she carries this look.

  50. natalie says:

    her jaw looks big

  51. Judy says:

    Just as sexy as any long hair I’ve ever seen…she’s sleek, striking, and darling. And may I add that I am SO SICK of the mop of Housewives’ Hair look.

  52. dj says:

    It is always interesting to see what fashion she is wearing. She is gorgeous and can pull off this short, fashionable (but unusual) haircut. I got my haircut short when I wanted to be taken more seriously and not for being a blonde. It felt like freedom.

  53. Sloane Wyatt says:

    @Judy #52: Right On, Sister! God, I hate weaves. Real hair looks so much better whether it’s a Fro or stick straight and thin.

    IMO wearing falls for a role or as an occasional fun accessory looks pretty, but the everyday wearing of fake mops stuck on top of your head makes these women look like they called Sean Penn’s wigmaker!

  54. Zoe says:

    Now I see why girls are accused of being “catty”. Why dissect every aspect of someone’s physicality and judge them for it? We should really be better than this. Oh, and short hair doesn’t equal drag king. Homophobic much?

  55. UKHels says:

    hmmm looks good BUT makes her look older than early twenties
    her acting in TB sucks though – not seen her in much else

  56. Gwen says:

    I’m not a huge fan of hers but I think she looks really good. I like the hair 🙂

  57. Maritza says:

    With that face and body she can do anything with her hair and look good.

  58. Camille says:

    I like her and I think she is beautiful, but I’m not really feeling this look.

  59. dani says:

    She looks just like Ellen

  60. Micah says:

    The new do look Fabulous on her.

  61. Naykate says:

    LOVE the hair. Not sure about the outfit, or maybe it’s those red straps putting me off…

  62. dr.bombay says:

    Love it–love the POOF!

  63. Denver Danni says:

    I will say this: of all girl crushes I love Meg Ryan’s hair in French Kiss. short hair is gorgeous but she’s so young, and I am becoming a curmudgeon, her interviews annoy me.

  64. serena says:

    She looks fabulous!

  65. Annie_Grey says:

    Looks really cute! Probably rebelling against an ex that liked it long. I’ve chopped my hair off after a break-up. Felt good.

  66. Pia says:

    Love it. This really makes the most of her features. I actually never found her attractive before and now she’s girl crush worthy.

  67. Marianne says:

    I like the hair, not crazy about the suit

  68. Thea says:

    I love it. She has the face for short hair and beautiful features.

  69. shea says:

    she’s pretty but she’s so flat chested!

  70. harfang says:

    OH yeah. Holy SHIT. Who wants to help me out here?: Option 1: Evsbian. Option 2: Evan My New Tool. Option… ah forget it, I can’t even think str… *duck* 😉

  71. samab says:

    hot and edgy
