    There’s something strange going on in Supermodel Land right now. The girls that bat away the new faces every season and continue to dominate the fashion and beauty world are going all Edward Scissorhands on us.

    Let’s explore.

    First Karlie Kloss sliced off her tumbling curls without so much as a warning.

    Next, catwalk favourite Edie Campbell lost twelve inches and went jet black purely on a whim.

    Then Lindsey Wixson saunters into a New York Benefit last month with a Joan Jett mullet and barely anything to frame her million dollar features, quickly followed by an Instagram selfie from Estee Lauder golden girl Constance Jablonski’s full-on curly bob.

    And now peroxide blonde Abbey Lee is sporting a sleek, black crop on the Gucci AW13 fashion campaign.

    Cynics will write it off as the best looking girls in the world merely proving how gorgeous they are even with the dodgiest DIY crop, but us? Well, we think it’s kinda wonderful.

    For women who are dressed up and made-up by other people on a daily basis and told what image they’ll give off, how liberating to just take control and chop it all off like the rest of us can. Perhaps we won’t be following suit but we can’t wait for the next big name that does.
