Yahoo Contributor Network

Anne Hathaway's white Grecian gown dropped jaws at the "Dark Knight Rises" premiere in New York. The plunging neckline was matched by an equally engaging draped back- with both stealing the show. Holding its own, demurely atop Hathaway's head was her now-infamous pixie cut.

Her fans haven't completely embraced the haircut. But her choice of attire at the movie premiere made a firm statement: "I am woman, hear me roar." Arguably, this is a look not too many people are able to pull off. But by remaining true to their individual styles, these celebs have also managed to keep their pixies looking fresh and feminine.

"Dawson's Creek" actress Michelle Williams showed up at Comic-Con posing on the red carpet in a dress that practically blended into the busy background. But the floral print, sweet hemline, and funky purple pumps upped the ante on her innocent look.

After rocking a severe bob for a while, Katie Holmes ultimately did the big chop, fashioning her sleek brunette locks into a pixie 'do. The result? Coupled with her high-end wardrobe and "Jackie O" shades, Holmes was the epitome of understated glamour.

How did Kiera Knightley rev up her pixie cut in 2010? With highlights and make-up that smolders, the "Pirates of the Caribbean" star gave her style an exotic edge. Dramatic make-up on women with short haircuts is a surefire way to provide an instant boost.

When you look like Halle Berry, it's hard to make any hairstyle look bad. But with the petite star's soft features, the tight shock of hair looks completely natural. Berry further plays up the cut by wearing lots of feminine shapes in her wardrobe.

Sharon Stone

once donned the style in 2004 and maintained her femme fatale status by opting for bold jewelry, and a messy bed-head slant-wild and free, just like the style's owner. The actress has actually taken a few creative approaches with her short 'do, each one accompanied by her uber-sultry style.

"Halloween" superstar Jamie Lee Curtis has gotten famous for her permanent pixie fixture. The actress is noted for her stance on aging gracefully, letting her shock of hair turn silver. By keeping make-up minimal in rosy tones, the horror queen remains refreshed, not "painted."
