Minnie Driver Rocks This Season's Faux Bob

You'd be forgiven for thinking that Minnie Driver was debuting a radical new haircut at the Conviction film premiere in London. But unless the star had nipped out to the salon earlier that day, we deduce that the new look was down to a few strategically placed pins.

The tumbling curls Minnie displayed as she attended the film's photo call at the 54th BFI London Film Festival, had been neatly tucked away by the evening premiere to create the illusion of a chic, chin-length bob.

Celebrity short bobs are all the rage this season so perhaps Minnie is doing a trial run before going for the chop.
