Emily Ratajkowski Kicked Off New York Fashion Week With the Season’s Biggest Haircut


New York Fashion Week doesn’t start ’til Emily Ratajkowski walks in. The model, who is a regular during fashion month, made her first appearance of the season at Hourglass Cosmetics’ lipstick launch in Manhattan on February 9, where she debuted a chic short haircut—and an even shorter dress. How do I know, aside from Getty Images? I was there! And the first thing I noticed was how noticeably short Ratajkwoski’s hair was…and how familiar the cut looked.

The Trending Midi-Lob Cut

The midi-lob cut has been spotted on everyone from Rihanna and Selena Gomez to Jennifer Aniston and Emma Stone so far in 2024. And we’re only two months into the year. The blunt, long bob is basically the best of both worlds, making a statement without sacrificing too much length. It’s also not so long that it reaches high-maintenance territory, meaning it passes the quiet-luxury vibe check. Plus, it’s especially flattering on a wide range of face shapes.

Celebrity Hairstylist Insights

“Ideal on those with wider, rounder, or heart-shaped faces, the long bob has been getting more popular throughout the year and the final evolution of this shape has straightener sides and softer ends,” celebrity hairstylist and Evo Hair international color creative director Tom Smith, tells Glamour. “This is almost reaching a ‘short’ long haircut thanks to the lack of blunt lines.”

Emily Ratajkowski’s Fashion Choices

As for her dress, that looked familiar too. Kylie Jenner wore the Jacquemus design to the designer’s Les Sculptures Paris show at Couture Week, a show that Ratajkowski walked in! For another twist, Ratajkowski later made an appearance at Puma RTW’s fall 2024 show, embracing a more sporty aesthetic and restyling her lob with a wave.

Emily Ratajkowski’s Street Style

For some additional Emily Ratajkowski mid-length lob inspo that feels more weather-appropriate, consider her wintertime Manhattan street style—and sleek hairstyle. Happy New York Fashion Week!
