    Evangeline Lilly Debuts Drastic New Hairdo at The Hobbit Premiere—Check It Out

    Evangeline Lilly may be playing an elf in The Hobbit, but her new look is downright pixie.

    The erstwhile Lost star made for quite a vision while walking the red carpet at the world premiere of Peter Jackson's fantasy epic in Wellington last night, turning up with an all-new hairdo: short, shaggy and, yes, blond!

    Gone were the 33-year-old natural brunette's signature long wavy locks, as Evangeline showed off the cropped and chunkily highlighted look.

    It's unclear whether Lilly's hair change-up was for personal or professional reasons, though it's quite a departure from both her usual style and the equally long-locked look she'll sport in the Martin Freeman-starring franchise, where she'll play the original elfin character of Tauriel.

    Still, those who aren't too keen on the new 'do will have to wait a while until they see the star onscreen, since she doesn't actually appear until the second installment of the franchise, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, out in December 2013.
