Washington's new cut features longer layers on top and side-swept bangs, and comes courtesy of celebrity hairstylist Takisha Sturdivant-Drew, who explained on Instagram that she took one look at the actress' strapless Schiaparelli gown and was reminded of 1950s and '60s screen legend Audrey Hepburn's gamine glamour.

"I decided the hair should be short in a smooth cut but still a little messy and undone for that sultry touch," the stylist revealed.

It's a big change for the stunning actress, who normally wears her hair in a sleek and straight lob, occasionally styling in playful waves.
