Celebrity stylist Harry Josh had teased the bob hours earlier, captioning a pic of the process, “Ok people I just cut literally a foot off a mystery actress! It will be revealed on the red carpet tonight!”
But he and Bosworth, 32, were too nervous about paparazzi ruining her big moment to wait, posting the big reveal on both of their social handles.
“Sorry folks couldn’t wait for the reveal tonight, too many paps chasing her around!” he wrote along with a full shot of the star’s chic look.
“Bobs are a trend right now,” Josh tells PEOPLE, but “Kate’s really focused on her craft now more so than beauty so this cut was about her movie — not a beauty trend.” He spritzed her hair with John Frieda Beach Blonde sea salt spray and dried with a diffuser, then used his own flatiron to shape the waves for a “Great Gatsby-inspired” look.
