When the history books are written, besides all the unpleasantness with Trump, Assad, Putin and Kim Jong-Un, 2017 will probably be remembered as the year everyone chopped their damn hair off and surprised the heck out of Instagram.
Katy Perry did it, Kristen Stewart did it, Gigi Hadid had a go – although it appears that was just some kind of elaborate April Fools thing – and now Cara Delevingne has gone and lopped all her tresses off.
“I have to shave my head for my next part, so I have to do something different,” the model-turned-actress told USA Today last month. “So I dyed it. Just for fun. Just to change it up.”
After showing up with cotton candy pink streaks, Delevingne teased Snapchat with a photo of a chunk of lopped off hair, then followed up with the big reveal.
The new look is for the upcoming film Life In A Year, in which Delevingne stars alongside Jaden ‘Most Trees Are Blue’ Smith. Per the plot description on IMDB:
“The movie follows a 17 year old, who finds out that his girlfriend is dying, so he sets out to give her an entire life, in the last year she has left.”
Katy Perry has been steering pretty hard into her new, shorn look on Instagram:
Also, here’s a super uncomfortable April Fools photoshop that Bethenny Frankel pulled, because I saw it so now you have to look at it too:
