Hailee Steinfeld Shocks Fans With New Blonde Bombshell Look at the Met Gala
Hailee Steinfeld took on a whole new look at the Met Gala this year, breaking the internet and going viral for being almost unrecognizable with her platinum locks. The 24-year-old Hawkeye actress appeared in New York for the big event donning a sleek blonde bob and a slightly avant-garde dress. Steinfeld still sported her usual dark hair on Instagram earlier that Monday, disorienting onlookers that were expecting to spot the familiar brunette strutting through the venue.
Steinfeld’s new blonde bombshell persona only served to skyrocket her popularity, leaving fans and celebrity followers alike raving about the change. Celebrity journalist Jarrett Wieselman tweeted, “Hailee Steinfeld legit made me gasp (and had to triple check it was her,” praising the actress for her “top-tier look.”
Fans all over the internet were also questioning whether or not it was truly the young actress.

Some online even went so far as to admit they just assumed Steinfeld was the 32-year-old pop singer Bebe Rexha upon first glance.

The actress has yet to address the buzz she’s created, but there’s no doubt that this marks a big change for Steinfeld. A fan account on Twitter even took the time to highlight just how drastic the change was, praising Steinfeld for being a “fashion icon.”
Some say that the actress’ brown eyes and beauty mark were the only things that confirmed it was truly Hailee Steinfeld on the red carpet, while others joked that she was proving herself to be the “master of disguises” on screen.
This was just the icing on top of the cake. Earlier, the trailer for her upcoming Disney+ series debuted, garnering much excitement and anticipation from fans for what’s to come. In the clip, Jeremy Renner’s character Clint Barton is back as the archer, and Steinfeld plays Kate Bishop, trying to follow in the hero’s footsteps. It all culminates in an action-packed Christmas adventure through New York City. Whether she’s on the carpet of the Met Gala or landing a new role, there’s no doubt that she will rock it.
