The stars came out en masse last night at Elle’s 19th Annual Women in Hollywood Celebration, but there was one celebrity in particular that came out with a bang. Literally.

Emma Stone debuted a new hairstyle at the event, and yes, it includes bangs. We last saw her a few weeks ago during Paris Fashion Week where she was spotted (sans bangs) sitting front row at Miu Miu and looking very Old Hollywood. But last night the actress, who presented at the event with Allison Janney, accentuated her new blonde bangs in a mod-ish pink and white dress from Valentino Resort 2013.

Of course, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen Emma Stone rocking this style. About two years ago the occasional redhead debuted blonde locks with bangs for her role as Gwen Stacy in The Amazing Spider-Man. And while she has yet to confirm being cast in the sequel—which begins filming in the new year—we’ll consider Emma Stone’s Gwen bangs as a sign that she’s on board.

One last thought: as much as we love this new look on Emma Stone, we couldn’t help but think she looks a lot like Rachel McAdams with this new haircut and colour. Given that bangs appeared on so many of the Fall 2012 runways, we can only be a few red carpet appearances away from seeing another starlet with the look. Any guesses who it’ll be?
