​Queen Letizia of Spain shows off a chic faux bob

Europe’s newest Queen is quite the royal trendsetter!

Queen Letizia of Spain, 41, stepped out this week sporting a new, shorter hairstyle, leaving royal watchers to wonder if she had chopped off her long locks.

Though she hadn’t (it’s faux!), the incredibly chic bob made quite the statement for the elegant royal, who teamed the 'do with a sleeveless black dress.

To achieve the look, the mother of two had pinned the ends of her hair underneath to create the illusion of a bob. It's a trick fashionistas has been showcasing for years and has been seen lately on starlets like Taylor Swift, Nicole Richie, Selena Gomez, Kate Beckinsale and Elizabeth Olsen.

And while Letizia usually lets her brunette hair hang loose à la the Duchess of Cambridge, we commend the Spanish style star for switching it up now and again (she wore the same look back in March 2014)!

Tell us on Facebook: Should Letizia make this super-chic bob permanent?
