Looks like Hayden Panettiere gave herself a nice little 24th birthday present: a bold makeover! The Nashville star debuted her drastic new look while arriving at the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City for The Late Show With David Letterman.
Hayden wore a skin-tight mini dress with a geometric-inspired design. She paired it with red bootie stilettos, gold bracelets and a sleek haircut with drastic bangs. One thing she didn’t include with the ensemble was the stunning diamond ring she was spotted with at the LAX Airport on August 14.
Both Hayden and beau Wladimir Klitschko have dodged engagement rumors for months. So, is Hayden engaged? The common belief is that Hayden and Wladimir are secretly engaged, but are opting to keep things on the down-low. Like, so low that she doesn’t even wear a ring during major public appearances. That way, when asked whether she’s planning a wedding, Hayden can quickly answer the question and move on…
“No ring,” she told E! News in May, showing her unadorned hand.
But, maybe — just maybe — David Letterman can get a solid answer out of her.
Catch Hayden on Late Show on CBS tonight at 11:35/10:35c.
