Top of the crops: Rihanna joins the short barnet brigade

Rihanna stunned fans on Thursday night when she stepped out showcasing her new pixie cut, a drastically different look for the popstar.

It takes a lot to pull off an elfin cut, but with her beautiful features, the songstress gave a masterclass in rocking the style.

She teamed the new look with a red lip and smokey eyes, which gave a feminine edge to the overall appearance.



Rihanna seems to have followed in the footsteps of Miley Cyrus, Anne Hathaway, Emma Watson and Elisabeth Moss, who have all recently gone for the chop.

And she certainly wasn't the only star to sport a short do at the MTV VMAs.

Miley, who seems to be making an effort to shed her Disney, good-girl image recently, was showing off her newly-shorn, peroxide blonde locks with an enormous quiff.

And she looked almost identical to singer Pink, who was rocking a Mohawk.


Pink, however, has had the grungy hairstyle almost ever since she stepped into the limelight.

Miley caused a Twitter storm last month when she documented the hair-cutting process, teasing fans with a picture of scissors being held up to her bun before she posted the finished product.
