Hot or Not? Elisabeth Moss’ New Short, Blonde ‘Do
Mad Men’s Elisabeth Moss showed up at the premiere of For a Good Time, Call… with a brand new blonde pixie cut. Hot or not?
Mad Men’s Peggy Olson usually keeps her hair in one of two styles: A ponytail with a curl at the end, or a flippy cut worn with a headband—and in both cases, she’s always brunette. But at the New York premiere of For a Good Time, Call… on Tuesday, Peggy’s real-life counterpart, Elisabeth Moss, showed up sporting a lacy black dress… and a brand new ‘do! What do you think of her new look?
A platinum blonde pixie, this look is definitely a departure from Peggy’s signature style—as well as from the look Elisabeth has worn for most of her career. (WARNING – MAD MEN SPOILERS) Given Peggy’s recent departure from Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, perhaps it’s not surprising that Elisabeth would chose now to change up her hair.
She rold Us Weekly on the red carpet, “I wanted to do something really different.” Do blondes have more fun? “So far!” she joked. She did note, however, that her changed look is preventing people from spotting her on the street: “People still recognize me because I always looked so different from Peggy before,” she said.
While I admire the guts it takes to do a complete 180 like this, personally? I’m… not totally sure I like it on her. That said, though, it’s a good cut and a terrific color job, so hey, at least we know she went to someone who really knows what they’re doing for it, right?
Tell us: What do you think of Elisabeth’s new look?
