YOU GUYS, This Is What Zooey Deschanel Looks Like Without Bangs

(Photo by Getty) This is Zooey Deschanel with bangs, obviously.

Zooey Deschanel's bangs are kind of her thing, so when we saw this snap of some person being all "punk" and stuff at the Met Gala—yes, that's Tommy Hilfiger seersucker—we were all like...

Who's that girl?

It's Zooey Deschanel! Without bangs.

Did you just scroll back up to do a double take? Because we sure did, like, four times at least. And that was after Google-searching and Twitter-checking to, indeed, confirm that it was not a Zooey Deschanel impostor on the red carpet—the lack of nail art is suspect—but rather the living, breathing, bang-less funny girl we all know and love by the name of Zooey Deschanel.

It's her. I zoomed in just to quintuple check.

And guys wonder why the heck we freak out so much over the life-changing (!!!) decision between "Should I?" or "Shouldn't I?" get bangs. The results (see Exhibit A, above) can be, like, night and day.

But considering her Met Gala look was SO far off from her usual red carpet quirk, I'm 97.4 percent sure this was actually her quirkiest look to date—and that her fringe will be back, fringe-ier than ever, before we know it.

Doesn't it kind of make you appreciate her bangs so much more?
