Sydney Sweeney Debuts Shortest Hair Yet With ‘Monroe Bob’

And if you think you’ve seen this exact dress before, your eyes are not deceiving you. Angelina Jolie originally wore the elegant gown, which pooled around Sydney’s feet, to the Academy Awards in 2004. But unlike Angelina, who styled the look with a casual half-up half-down hairstyle, Sydney chose the event to debut a modern Monroe bob.

28 best Oscars 2024 beauty looks that made our jaws drop

Sydney’s hair transformation began at Miu Miu’s recent Paris Fashion Week show, where she traded in her signature, long mane for a textured, shoulder-skimming shag. She looked virtually unrecognisable. At last night’s Oscars, she went shorter still.

Still leaning into the silver screen vibes, Sydney’s curled-under, side-parted bob – with a soft wave over one eye – seemed to be a nod to Marilyn’s hairstyle at the Call Me Madam premiere in 1953. The only difference was that rather than going platinum blonde, Sydney Sweeney kept her deeper, linen blonde hue.

She also avoided a literal interpretation by opting for nude makeup and subtly defined eyes (there was a noticeable absence of dramatic black liner or red lipstick) – making hers a soft, dreamy take on an icon.
