Looks like her romantic life wasn’t the only thing that needed a shake-up!

Weeks after splitting with love Ryan Seacrest, Julianne Hough decided to take her shoulder-length bob even shorter.

She also spiced up her longtime golden-blonde shade with much lighter streaks, reminiscent of the blue-tinged platinum hue Miley Cyrus was rocking in March.

This is the shortest we’ve seen Hough’s hair (her last big chop was not quite chin-length) and the shimmery highlights definitely add a little extra sass to her blunt do.

What do you think of Hough’s new look? Tell us in the comments!

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

She looks gorgeous! It doesn’t look much shorter though. More like a bit of a trim than a cut. The color is really good on her.

She looks like a young Meg Ryan here. Pretty look

It’s Meg Ryan before all the facial reconstruction…

I don’t care for the new trend of scraggly looking ends. Looks unkempt and like it needs a trim, even though it’s supposed to be that way.

Every time she cuts her hair, it looks like she added five years to her age.

Ann on

Makes her look like a plain Jane so not a flattering look at all.

She’s cute, no matter her hair cut, but I prefer it longer. Whoever said about her looking like a young Meg Ryan was dead on!
