Victoria Beckham stepped out over the weekend debuting a new hairstyle that had us doing a double-take: Her freshly cut, side-swept bangs make her look like a lot like a modern version of Audrey Hepburn. The designer is known for her cutting-edge take on timeless style, so we’re not surprised that her new look is a nod to classic beauty that is synonymous with Old Hollywood glam and elegance. And it’s totally working.
While Victoria opted for a less harsh version of straight across bangs, the wispy quality of her new ‘do still packs a big change — that’s why getting any sort of bangs is a big commitment; the smallest snip can totally change your look. Straight across bangs are not for the faint of heart — and require constant maintenance (trims) so they don’t look overgrown and/or sloppy, but a softer look like Victoria’s is a bit easier to keep up, especially once you master the art of trimming your own bangs. Her bangs appear to be easy to pin back, which makes her look insanely versatile. We can’t wait to see how she styles them all Fashion Month long.
The sleek black dress, pulled back hair and oversized sunglasses Victoria wore also added to her Audrey Hepburn-esque look. Beyond that, Victoria’s face shape and coloring is also similar to that of Audrey’s. We love how her new bangs accentuated her bone structure without being overpowering and too blunt for her soft features. Now, the question is, will she continue to channel Audrey Hepburn or was this a one-time twinning moment?
