Rihanna debuts new, short haircut on Video Music Awards red carpet

rihanna-short-hair-vmas.jpg Rihanna has been all about big hair lately, wearing long, loose 'dos both on stage and off in recent months. So the look she debuted at the MTV VMAs was a huge change.

The pop star walked the VMA red carpet Thursday (Sept. 6) in a sleek white dress and an even sleeker haircut, going super-short and evoking Twiggy/Mia Farrow/pick your short-hair icon.

Also? It totally worked. She looked old-school glamorous with the simple dress and short hair.

Rihanna is up for five VMAs on Thursday, including video of the year and best female video for "We Found Love." She's also set to perform during the show.

So what do you think of RiRi's new look? Is the short hair working for you?
