You probably know her as Penny from The Big Bang Theory, but Kaley Cuoco looked almost unrecognisable at the SAG Awards, held at LA’s Shrine Auditorium last night. We’ve spent a good portion of this morning staring in confusion at her red carpet look.

Kaley’s classic 1950s style prom dress was reminiscent of Jennifer Lawrence’s gorgey Golden Globes look but had extra lace overlay detail. She paired it with feminine dark red heels, a glitzy clutch and a simple silver bangle.

That’s not that bad, we hear you cry. What’s wrong with a nice red frock? Well nothing really. But the hair. OH WOW THE HAIR.

Somehow, Kaley’s normally pretty blonde curls were transformed into some kind of protective space helmet. It looks like if you knocked on it, the noise would echo for miles. We don’t even know how she’s gone about achieving this. Was it a serious amount of backcombing? Is there a miniature scaffolding set up across her roots?

IS IT EVEN HER REAL HAIR? We can’t stop staring at it.

She’s also working a serious scouse brow underneath that fringe of hers. Gurlfriend, put down the eyebrow pencil. AGH.

What do you think of Kaley’s SAG Awards look?
