Elisabeth Moss has cut her shoulder-length hair short and gone platinum-blond, à la Miley Cyrus — but we prefer to think she's getting her Twiggy on, in keeping with the essence of "Mad Men" and its 1960s setting.

Twiggy, of course, is British model Leslie Lawson, whose androgynous look made her a fashion icon and otherwise famous face in the mid-'60s.

Moss rocked her new 'do on the "For a Good Time, Call ... " red carpet Tuesday in New York, supporting the film starring Ari Graynor, Lauren Miller, Seth Rogen and Justin Long, which opens Aug. 31 in limited release.

"I wanted to do something really different ...," the actress told Us Weekly on the Grey Goose-sponsored carpet. However, "People still recognize me because I always looked so different from ["Mad Men" character] Peggy before."

One thing we're willing to bet on: Moss is unlikely to be nonstop-sharing her new look online, as Cyrus has been doing relentlessly since getting her locks chopped Aug. 12.
