While attending the Academy Museum Gala in Los Angeles, Nicola Peltz decided to revive the '90s thin eyebrows, proving the bushy, thick look is no longer the reigning beauty trend.

Nicola Peltz's latest beauty move is raising eyebrows—literally.

The Bates Motel alum proved that the less is more approach can have a major impact, as she stunned in a head-turning little black dress and fresh-faced makeup at the Academy Museum Gala on Oct. 15 in Los Angeles.

And while her effortless style certainly grabbed attention, it was her super skinny thin brows that stole the spotlight. Turns out, bushy brows are no longer the only option now that the 27-year-old is bringing back the divisive '90s trend.

A-listers such as Kate Moss, Drew Barrymore, Salma Hayek and even Nicola's mother-in-law Victoria Beckham popularized the look with razor-sharp arches decades ago. However, Nicola's brows were given a more modern feel, as her makeup artist Yumi Mori created dimension and smoothness to her finely feathered hair.

Making the thin brows appear less shocking, Yumi kept the actress' makeup simple, adding a classic cat-eye, bronzy eyeshadow and enough coats of mascara that her lashes were full but not dramatically done. A nude lip and barely-there blush completed her overall look.

Most Iconic Eyebrows of All Time

It's clear the Transformers actress isn't afraid to switch up her style, as she debuted bleached eyebrows during Paris Fashion Week earlier this month. Bella Hadid and Kylie Jenner were a few stars who followed suit while attending the runway shows in France.


Nicola's revival of the '90s thin brows at the Academy Museum Gala may divide the internet, but there's no denying her look was anything short of spectacular. And she wasn't the only celeb to show up and show out.

Take a peek at all of the other star-studded guests at the event—including Hailey Bieber and Selena Gomez's viral photo together, Olivia Wilde's glitzy gown and more.
