Angelina Jolie looked gorgeous as usual at last night's premiere of "Salt."

But what really got us talking was Naomi Watts' dramatic new look.

The waifish blonde star, who normally prefers a low key ponytail or a classic slicked-back style, walked the red carpet with a shorter, straighter, blunter hair cut, framed by, gasp, bangs.

Even her hairstylist, Robert Vetica, acknowledges the tress-formation.

"It was quite a change for Naomi," he says. "I cut 2 inches off, kept her hair blunt and collarbone length, and created bangs that swooped to the side. The length is a bit longer in front and slightly higher in back."

And those bangs?

"They were first cut long and blunt, then razered and texturized to about the bridge of the nose so they looked lighter around the face and were easily swept to the side," says Vetica, who also styles stars like Salma Hayek and Marion Cotillard.

Watts paired her new 'do with a metallic strapless Gucci mini-dress and a wide cuff with black and white diamonds set in platinum, along with a diamond ring, both by Neil Lane.

When it comes to styling fine blonde hair like Watts,' Vetica has a specific tip.

"I started with Moroccanoil Light because fine blonde hair tangles so easily but can¹t take too much conditioner," he says. "Argan oil-infused Moroccanoil absorbs right into delicate lightened hair, makes it easier to comb, gives it a smoother texture, and eliminates flyaways. It also makes blow drying faster, all without weighing hair down."

"The strands look light and airy, as if I didn't use any product."
