While Tara Reid is no stranger to changing up her appearance, one thing she’s hardly ever messed with is her long flaxen hair. The American Pie actress’ latest hair change-up, however, had us doing a *major* double take.

Reid showed up to the Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets premiere in Hollywood looking like a whole new woman. Her look was so different, in fact, that we thought it might be a wig.

Here’s a photo in case you needed a reminder of what the actress looked like before she went for the chop. Gone are her familiar, dirty blonde, mid-parted locks, replaced instead by a much blonder, much blunter coif, complete with straight-edge bangs like we’ve never seen on the 41-year-old.

The actress actually debuted the look on her own Instagram page a few days earlier for a photoshoot for A Book Of magazine, showing off some behind-the-scenes primping and serious style.

The Valerian premiere marked Reid’s first red carpet hair outing, stealing a smidge of attention from its stars such as Cara Delevingne and, of course, Rihanna, in her buzz-worthy custom Giambattista Valli ballet-esque frock.

Welcome to the fringe club, Tara!
