The ultimate bombshell, model Irina Shayk, has arrived on the Golden Globes 2019 red carpet with a bob.

Shayk, typically the queen of the long, bombshell mane, has made her debut (arm in arm with nominee Bradley Cooper nonetheless) with a sleek, straight, cropped bob.

Aside from being immensely jealous of being on the arm of Mr. Cooper (sigh), we are also very jealous of that hair.¬†Parted deeply to one side, straightened flat (but not too flat) and impossibly glossy, it’s the bob done right.

Shayk’s new abbreviated length also makes a strong statement: yes, short hair is sexy (a rhetoric Jen Atkin has been championing for a while). Curved slightly at its ends and tucked behind one ear, it’s sexy hair without being overt and overdone. Quite simply, it’s sexy hair done right – without the fuss and garish overtones.

Simple and chic, the undone hair look is the perfect accompaniment to her bedazzled dress – Versace, of course. Scissor-happy hairdressers rejoice; the bob isn’t going anywhere.
