You Won’t Even Recognize Zooey Deschanel Without Bangs [PHOTOS]

Whoa. They say that bangs can change your look and give you a boost — just ask Michelle Obama. But in the case of quirky-cute actress Zooey Deschanel, who’s known for her signature fringe, she’s rendered instantly and totally unrecognizable without it.

The actress wore her face-framers swept back at the 2013 Met Gala this week, while the rest of her locks were pulled into an updo. Be honest — if we didn’t tell you it was Deschanel, would you know it was her?

She looks markedly, drastically and severely different. Bangs are youthful, and without ‘em, the 33-year-old Zooey does appear a tiny bit older.

Now we know why she rocks the bangs — because they flatter her face and look adorbs. Without them, she’s still pretty, but she blends in with the crowd instead of standing out from it.

Zooey, you’re beautiful and we love you. But please, we implore you — don’t go sans bangs again. It’s like one of those optical illusions we can’t figure out.
