Known for her fresh-faced, girl-next-door glam, Sydney Sweeney is making an exciting departure from her usual look on the cover of Vogue Hong Kong. The “Euphoria” actor graced the magazine’s glossy pages in a short, blond bob haircut that reached just above her shoulders, wispy curtain bangs, and bleached eyebrows to match, courtesy of hairstylist Rob Talty. As a part of her first-ever Vogue shoot, Sweeney wore a Gucci ensemble with Messika jewelry, posing in Santa Clarita, and channeling a high-fashion Sue Sylvester in a red set.
Dena Neustadter Giannini, the stylist for the shoot, wrote on Instagram that Sweeney is a special kind of talent. “If you know me u know sometimes I get extra obsessed and all consumed by a shoot … live it – breathe it – 24/7 kind of obsessed…” she said. “This was one of those for me … Sydney is a STAR.”
The photo shoot, which is a far cry from Sweeney’s usual glittering roles and seductive aesthetics, may just be an indication of a new, edgier era for her. She’s on the cover of Vogue, and she’s doing it her way.
