Evangeline Lilly looks very different these days. 

The star from ABC's Lost, who redefined sexy beach hair and sported skimpy bikinis when she wasn't covered in mud on the show, stepped out with a more conservative look that leaned towards the geek-chic side on Tuesday, Nov. 18, in New York City.

 

The mother of one, 35, paired her layered brown bob, with black eyeglasses and a tweed business suit for an appearance on Tuesday, Nov. 18 on ABC's The View to discuss her new children's book, The Squickerwonkers.

For her book signing at Barnes & Nobles in New York City on Monday, Nov. 17, Lilly wore yet another eclectic ensemble — a cropped blazer with a voluminous red plaid skirt, and a matching hat.  

The debut of the Hobbit star's new style comes as she embarks on a new career as a children's book author.

"I was not entirely satisfied with my career as an actress and was looking for something that would fulfill me creatively and give me all the things that I wanted out of a job," Lilly explained to the New York Daily News
