In Rooney's defense, we know her bangs are part of her The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo character, and we have to give her props for her creativity in disguising them on the red carpet. And, with Zoe, we wanted to say that she's too young to remember, but when your dad is a '90s music icon, you don't get a free pass. Canadian songbird Claire Boucher, a.k.a. Grimes, is the only one who's kind of pulling it off, but when you're as talented as she is, you can get away with pretty much anything (ahem, Gaga). But now, Yves Saint Laurent is taking the style from grunge revival to high fashion with the release of their spring '12 ads: They feature Mariacarla Boscono sporting rounded baby bangs and thin, penciled on brows, another '90s beauty trend we'd rather forget. We're sorry, but after the trauma we are still subjected to every time we look at old yearbook photos, we just cannot get behind this.
What's your take on baby bangs? High-concept hairstyle or a look that's best left back in the past?
