Having spent the majority of her decades-long career with a blunt cut, Naomi Watts is no stranger to an abbreviated style. But thanks to a few fresh nuances, the Australian actress’s latest crop is cooler than ever. Arriving for an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in New York City yesterday, Watts, wearing a black strapless jumpsuit that showed of her toned arms and décolletage, debuted an asymmetrical, chin-grazing bob shorn by her hairstylist Renato Campora.

Center parted and smoothed pin-straight, the cut’s streamlined, slightly off-kilter silhouette emphasized her pronounced bone structure, while its razor-sharp edges framed her jawline. The lustrous sheen of her lengths brightening her porcelain complexion, she finished the look with a soft smoky eye, flushed cheeks, and a wash of coral on the mouth. While Watts’s typical fuss-free rumpled waves will always suit her, the slightly skewed proportions of her recalibrated bob call for a shine serum and few quick passes of a flat iron.
