Hailee Steinfeld, is that you?

The actor looked totally unrecognizable at Monday night's Met Gala, but in the best possible way.

The 24-year-old rocked the red — or shall we say white — carpet in an edgy Iris van Herpen ensemble that turned heads all night long.

The singer also debuted a new do for fashion's biggest night out and showed off her blunt blond bob. We're used to seeing the star rock her signature long brunette locks, so we definitely had to do a double take to make sure it was actually her.

Hairstylist Ruslan Nureev was the brains behind the new look and commented that he "did something different" in his Instagram story while highlighting the bold style.

The Met Gala is an ultra exclusive event where Hollywood's finest bring their fashion A-game, and Steinfeld has had a lot of practice perfecting her style over the years. The young star is no stranger to the event and has graced the red carpet on a number of occasions.

In 2019, she made an ironic fashion statement with this tiered dress that read "no photos please" on the skirt.
