Evan Rachel Wood's new pixie cut may have stolen the spotlight at the season four premiere of HBO's True Blood on Tuesday, but co-star Anna Paquin, 28, also looked stunning with a sleek voluminous French twist.

And she's not the only celeb who stepped out that night with a sophisticated swept-back style. Kate Winslet, 35, worked a similar look at the YO DONA Magazine International Awards in Madrid, Spain, only instead of an updo, she went for a ponytail.

Their structured styles are a bold choice, especially during the summer, when most stars are opting for more laid-back hair looks like boho loose braids and breezy beachy waves.
