We're ignoring Amanda Bynes' recent request to only use her Twitter selfies in articles about her, but we think she'll forgive us -- she was snapped looking pretty good in New York yesterday (April 18), and we couldn't resist sharing the photos.

Gone is the unkempt weave, and in its place is a slick new 'do that Bynes may have been getting when she made that bizarre video of what we hope was an audition video for the Miss Universe competition.

(They take contestants from other galaxies, right?)

All in all, she looks pretty fabulous here, and she even matched the color of her shoes to the cab she was hailing.

Check out more pics below. (Just kindly resist the urge to yank out those cheek piercings.)
