Gone Girl's Rosamund Pike Is the Latest Star to Rock an Undercut (We're Surprised, Too!)

Updated

Though we declared in our Best Dressed issue that we are “So Over” the half-shaved hair trend, celebrities don’t seem to be getting the memo. And the latest star to rock the look is a surprising one: Gone Girl‘s Rosamund Pike.

The British beauty (and soon-to-be mom of two) attended the London premiere of What We Did On Our Holiday wearing her bob pinned up to reveal a patch of shaved undercut in the back, à la Kylie Jenner. We’re not surprised to see it on a fashion-forward 17-year-old, but spying it on a 35-year-old English Rose type definitely gets our eyebrows up — in a good way!

An undercut can remove some weight from a thick head of hair, so if Pike is feeling the heat while getting ready for baby No. 2, that could explain the cut. Or it could be that she’s just feeling a little edgier after playing the mysterious Amy Dunne in Gone Girl, which hits theaters in a few weeks. Either way, we thought you might want the hair inspiration. Share your thoughts in the comments!
