Rosamund Pike debuts some thick bangs in Berlin: love them or hate them?

68th International Berlin Film Festival (Berlinale) - '7 Days in Entebbe' - Premiere

Rosamund Pike was in Berlin for the film festival for a few days. She was promoting her latest film, 7 Days in Entebbe. While I’m interested in Rosamund’s new projects, can we just spend some time talking about superficial stuff? Because OH MY GOD. I am a bangs-hater, you know that about me at this point. I’ve softened to the point where I will truly try to judge each set of bangs individually, to really see if the bangs/fringe really help a person’s face, or whether it’s a wash or whatever. Can we all agree that Rosamund’s bangs were not a good idea? That they make her look different-in-a-bad-way? That they are too thick, too long and that with THAT FACE she really doesn’t need them? My God.

For the Berlinale premiere, Rosamund wore this cream Givenchy ensemble, and gave us a look at the gown with and without the fringe-happy coat. Does anyone else think that she chose this ruffled/tiered/fringe-y dress to mimic the bangs? I’ll admit that I kind of enjoy that, that the bangs “match” the gown. But taken on its own, this gown is… not great. It looks like the wedding gown of a Wild West ghost. Rosamund wore a much cuter Givenchy LBD to the photocall too, although her bangs looked worse earlier in the day. My God.

    No no no no no. What is happening in that first picture?

  2. Lela says:

    The makeup really sucks which is making her look older paired with the bangs

  3. Léna says:

    She looks older and “colder”.

  5. minx says:

    She looks terrible.

  6. GATy says:

    Make up and hair don’t suit her at all

  7. KBeth says:

    While she is very attractive there is just something creepy about her.

  8. Ally says:

    It’s the Rec Sparrow special.

    I like it; makes her look quite different. Also, better bangs than Botox.

    Kudos on softening your anti-bangs stance, by the way. Though I get the urge to leave a comment for you every time I see a celeb with an unfortunate set.

  9. Merritt says:

    I prefer her hair in a softer style. During the flashbacks in “Gone Girl”, that style suited her features.

  10. Turtle says:

    I find it really curious that bangs on a woman can be so polarizing and almost triggering. Is it an age thing? A cultural thing? It’s the way some people see a beard and automatically think “lazy, dirty hippie” even if it’s clean and trimmed.

      I’m with you, Turtle. Is it just an American thing? Fringes/bangs are really popular here, and I’ve never heard any arguments about them. Some people just look better with a fringe. OK, I look better with a fringe.

  11. It’sJustBlanche says:

    They look terrible in the first picture but the rest of it looks kind of cute. But, I am pro bangs.

  12. HelloSunshine says:

    Her make up is not flattering in that first pic and her bangs are definitely too thick. They almost look like cheap clip on bangs that don’t quite fit in with her hair

  13. mosia says:

    Well, no comment on the first picture, but I like the photocall look. The waves make her look soft, and the dress is also fabulous.

  14. CL says:

    I’ve enjoyed her work for years, but never realized how much she looks like Jennifer Ehle until today.

  15. holly hobby says:

    Ugh Jane Bennett why do you have to look like the crypt keeper? Whoever styled her should be fired seriously.

  16. Her Higness says:

    I’m still upset she did not win for Gone Girl!

  17. MI6 says:

    Not. Good.
    The surgery isn’t working either. Yikes.

  18. siri says:

    I actually thought she’s wearing a wig first. Not a good idea, makes her look older and cold. I think she has an interesting face, but there’s something unsettling about it as well.

  19. Cher says:

    Just really bad.

  20. well maybe says:

    Yikes! Too much botox!

  21. Scarlett says:

    I would have liked to see a shot of her with a smile, I expect she would have looked better, less tense and lifeless. I look more cheerful heading to the dentist !

  22. lannisterforever says:

    She doesn’t even look like herself!
