Kate Beckinsale looks completely unrecognisable with a blonde bob

Kate Beckinsale boarded the bob train, and I quite literally did not recognise her. Not that that’s a bad thing — the Underworld star has simply never looked cooler, which is pretty impressive, seeing as she looks cool all the time. She did, after all, wear a Playboy Bunny outfit to her own 50th birthday party, and she showed up to Leonardo DiCaprio’s with an enormous gem hanging from her waist.

Beckinsale didn’t just debut the shortest haircut we’ve ever seen her with, but also a brand-new colour, too. Joining the ranks of Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Selena Gomez, and Keke Palmer, the 50-year-old traded in her lengthy brunette locks for light honey blonde.

We’ve said it once, maybe twice before, but we’ll say it again: 2024 is undeniably the year of honey blonde. And, separately, side bangs, which Beckinsale seems to cosign, having worn hers parted to the side and slightly covering just one eye à la Taylor Swift’s winter ‘do.

As for who’s responsible for her festive new look? Beckinsale’s bob was cut and styled by Dimitris Giannetos, who is known for his shocking bob haircut transformations (see: Meredith Duxbury’s pumpkin spice Italian bob).

“We wanted to do a change with Kate right before holiday season, so why not to do ‘blob,’ or a blonde bob, that highlights all her beautiful features?” Giannetos told GLAMOUR US. “Kate has a skin tone where any colour can look incredible on her — especially a salted butter blonde.”

As for how he created the finished style? “I used MoroccanOil before using a one-inch curling iron to create some loose waves, then sprayed Moroccan Oil Dry Shampoo to finish and give some extra texture,” he says.

Celebrity makeup artist Jose Corella oversaw her glam, which ties right into the outfit, which was styled by fashion editor-turned-stylist Gorge Villalpando. In photos shared on Instagram, Beckinsale wears a crimson trouser suit complete with a matching bra and platforms that are somehow the exact same shade as her bright red lipstick. Basically, everything about this look screams understanding the party season assignment. And also a little bit of sexy Santa, which is a compliment. ‘Tis the season, after all.
