Gigi Hadid, the It model of the moment, made a show-stopping arrival the 43rd annual American Music Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday. The Victoria’s Secret Angel looked white hot in a midriff-baring lace-up halter with a thigh-revealing skirt, but the real news was her hair. The 20-year-old debuted a textured, shoulder-clearing bob that had everyone talking.

But was the new ‘do actually hers?

During a chat with E!’s Live from the Red Carpet co-host Giuliana Rancic, the model coyly alluded to the fact that the chop may not be legit. “You’ll have to check back tomorrow to see if it’s really short,” she started. “There are tricks of the trade.”

Her hairstylist Bryce Scarlett also confirmed to InStyle that it was a "half wig" that he styled with a variety of Matrix StyleLink products to create the textured 'do: “I was really inspired by the neckline of the dress! The dress called for short, sexy, easy-looking hair.”

Hadid, along with BFF Kendall Jenner and other gal pals, hit up Sean Combs’s star-studded birthday bash in Beverly Hills on Saturday night, posting an Instagram snap (below) of her in what appears to be her longer locks. Is the magic of Hollywood’s beauty and makeup team at play here? We’ll have to keep an eye for any developments as she suggests, but we know that no matter the look, the 20-year-old can simply do no wrong these days.
