Abby Lee KershawNow that bobs are back and bigger than ever, one type of bob in particular is suddenly getting lots of attention:

The aptly-named mushroom bob.

Supermodel Abby Lee Kershaw is sporting one in Versace Atelier's spring 2011 lookbook, and you know what they say ...

If Abby Lee is doing it, EVERYONE ELSE WILL BE DOING IT NEXT MONTH.

Okay, I totally made that up, but still.

I'm skeered.

How about you?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mushroom BobThe last time this look was truly en vogue was back in the late '70s/early '80s, I believe, when elementary school teachers ROCKED THAT MUSHROOM BOB OUT.

At least, that's how I remembered it. Now, though, it seems ennui-filled 20-something angsters are giving it a shot.

Elle.com advises that the mushroom bob looks best on "on a tall, lanky girl with very feminine accessories."

I say it looks best on Bonnie Franklin ... but that's just me.

What do you think? Would you get a mushroom bob? Do you see this look making a comeback (*shudder*)?
