Bangs and a banging bod! Jordin Sparks, 23, was looking better than ever at an event in NYC on Wednesday, May 8, showing off freshly-cut bangs and her slimmed-down body.

Keeping her hair naturally curly, the singer complemented her new hairstyle with bright red lips and matching red nails. Wearing an orange tank, a black-and-white leopard print jacket, black leather liquid leggings, and black peep-toe stilettos, she pulled off the casual yet chic look like a pro.

Before the event, the former American Idol winner tweeted, "New hair!!" to her followers along with a picture of her bangs. "What do you think?"

The singer famously dropped 50 pounds -- and four dress sizes -- in summer 2012.

No word yet if her boyfriend of over a year, R&B singer Jason Derulo, 23, approves of the bangs, but it's safe to say he's given the thumbs up: Earlier today, he tweeted a sweet quote that Sparks re-tweeted. "I laugh, I love, I hope, I try, I hurt, I need, I fear, I cry & I know u do the same things too," he wrote. "So we're really not that different, me & u."
