She makes the cut! Katie Piper debuts short, chic bob at the theatre

By Andrea Magrath

Where better than a night at the theatre to debut a new, more sophisticated look?

Self-confessed girls' girl stole the spotlight as she showed off her short bob hairstyle at the VIP performance of Ballet Revolucion at the Peacock Theatre last night.

The 28-year-old teamed her sleek new look with a chic navy blue dress with sheer polka dot neckline by luxury label Beulah London.

Katie perked up the outfit with an injection of neon pink from her heels, which she complained to fans she had scuffed as she left home before the event.

The sartorial slip-up went unnoticed though, and Katie dazzled as she smiled for the cameras inside the theatre.

The TV personality and charity campaigner chopped off her long locks last month, debuting the look for fans on Twitter.

Miss Piper tweeted that she was 'blown away' by the 'amazing, beautiful' performance afterwards.

Ballet Revolucion is billed as an 'explosive infusion of ballet, contemporary and hip-hop' with Cuban, African and Spanish influences.

The dancers have the audience on their feet with performances to tracks by Shakira, Ricky Martin and Beyoncé.

She said at the time: 'It has been an amazing feeling. 'It wasn't like I took the bandage off and my sight came back like that, it happened gradually.'

It was a stellar night all round for Katie, who returned home from the performance to hear that her brother had gotten engaged.

'My brother proposed to his girlfriend 2night and she said yes!' she tweeted. 'How existing (sic) what a precious nite with a new wonderful beginning #sohappy4them'.
