Nicola Peltz's beauty transformation into 1970s Playboy siren Dorothy Stratten for Welcome to Chippendales is wild

We had to do a double take…

For Hollywood A-listers, major character transformations just come with the territory. And actress Nicola Peltz appears to be taking her most recent part in her stride, blonde bombshell wigs and all.

The 27-year-old has heartily embraced her latest role in Hulu's new miniseries Welcome to Chippendales, in which she plays 1970s siren Dorothy Stratten.
