Tom Brady debuted a new hairstyle while attending Monday night's Met Gala in New York City.
Held at the Costume Institute Benefit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the New England Patriots quarterback attended beside his wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen.
The 34-year-old football star donned an a-symmetrical gel-styled hairdo that was swept upward on the right side, giving the appearance of a "fauxhawk," or an almost-mohawk.
Brady has made headlines with hairstyles before, but his fauxhawk at the Met Gala has been met with much discussion on Twitter.
"Tom Brady is one very confident man," posted Mike.
Twitter user The Dude wrote, "Tom Brady rocks the lean-to-part-hawk [hair]."
Many fans compared the football star to 18-year-old pop singer Justin Bieber and to British soccer star David Beckham.
Pearl wrote, "Tom Brady debuts new do at the Met Gala: He looks like a really old version of Justin Bieber."
"Somebody tell Tom Brady that Beckham already happened," wrote Giselle.
In the past, Bundchen has defended her husband's appearance, including his long hairstyle of last year.
"That's his choice," the Victoria's Secret model told reporters at the time. "He does what he wants. I love him no matter what- short, bald, fat. It's all good."
Just months later, Brady revealed that he does not put much thought into his hair.
"I don't take it too seriously," the quarterback told WWD. "I just like to change it up."
Many of Brady's fans harbor strong opinions about the football star's hair. A recent poll on Facebook conducted by Pert Plus revealed that 63 percent of fans prefer Brady with short hair, while 18 percent like it long and another 18 percent of fans were undecided.
Regardless of hairstyle, Brady's athleticism has led the Patriots to the Super Bowl six times, winning three of them. He also serves as a model in advertisements for Uggs and Under Armor.
Brady and Bundchen were among many of today's top celebrities at the Met Gala, including Kanye West, Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Heidi Klum, and Scarlett Johansson, among many others.
