At the MTV VMAs, Rihanna took home the award for best video of the year for “We Found Love,” and also put together one of our favorite beauty looks of the year, with the debut of her pixie cut that looked downright stunning with bright red lipstick and a white gown.
GINNIFER GOODWIN, 2011
This actress is so attached to her pixie cut that she now has a wig clause written into every one of her contracts. “I find it hard to express myself when I’m growing out a very bad character haircut,” she said. “As long as I can wear a wig, I can be any character and in real life I can be myself.”
EMMA WATSON, 2010
Watson got a magical makeover when the Harry Potter series wrapped filming, trimming her shoulder-length hair into this pixie style that transformed her from Hermione Granger into a red-carpet superstar.
CAREY MULLIGAN, 2010
It’s been red, it’s been brunette. It’s been braided, it’s been set with finger waves. It’s been worn every which way, but we still can’t get enough of Mulligan’s pixie paired with a Prada dress and Fred Leighton earrings at the 2010 Academy Awards.
VICTORIA BECKHAM, 2008
Some refer to it as the “poxie.” We prefer to simply call it the chic hairstyle that marked her transition from pop star Posh Spice to fashion star Victoria Beckham. She unveiled the look at the same time she unveiled her first ready-to-wear collection at New York Fashion Week.
