Most brides-to-be worry about growing out their hair before walking down the aisle. But Emma Roberts is following her own bridal beauty rules. The newly engaged star just got a blunt bob!

Roberts debuted the sleek asymmetrical chop at Elle magazine’s Women in Television event Wednesday night. The style features longer, face-framing pieces in the front that highlight her bone structure. Her blonde hue also looks extra bright. (We suspect she got a touch-up while she was at the salon!) And you can tell the actress’s new cut made her feel bold and confident from head to toe. She selected a sexy cutout black top and white flare miniskirt (both Cushnie Et Ochs) for her big hair reveal on the carpet.

Last August, Roberts told PEOPLE that she really loved having long blonde hair. (She dyed her natural brunette hue and added extensions for her role in American Horror Story: Coven).

“I just love having long blonde hair again,” she said. “It’s actually a fun change. I feel like with blonde hair, you can get away with going lighter on the makeup, which is so nice to do in all this humidity. And I can tie it back and do messy knots and all of those fun hairstyles for summer, which are harder with shorter hair.”

We guess she wanted to change things up for 2014! And after all, messy summer topknots are a long way off at this point. Tell us: Are you loving Roberts’s cut? Do you miss her longer strands? Share your thoughts below!
