Only Katie Holmes Can Make a Haircut Look This Amazing (PHOTO)

If there was ever a night for celebs to debut jaw-droppingly dramatic styles, it would have to be the annual Met Gala, where mile-long trains and mile-high headpieces are par for the course. But Katie Holmes managed to steal the show at this year's event with a simple snip of the scissors (okay, quite a few snips!). The actress shocked fans when she showed up on designer Zac Posen's arm with a brand new chin-length bob and choppy bangs, looking (of course) more fabulous than ever.


Then again, not every fan was shocked -- those who were paying close attention might have noticed a pre-haircut Instagram of a longer-locked Holmes by DJ Quintero with the caption “Chop Chop! … BIG transformation.” Still, it's safe to say nobody expected to see the star sporting a look that dates back to her days as Mrs. Tom Cruise (Holmes had a similar haircut back when Suri was a toddler).

The transformation is enough to make some speculate that Holmes might be feeling nostalgic for married life, but that's just crazy talk in my opinion: Girl looks GOOD with that hair! Why wouldn't she take that awesome bob out for a spin again?!

Holmes' dress was a major win, too: By Posen, the gown featured a sexy cutout back and whimsical sparkly swirls along the bottom:

The overall look clearly put the actress in a good mood -- just look at her in this video!
