Anne Hathaway has often spoke about her admiration of Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, so she would’ve been over the moon to meet Princess Charlene of Monaco at the Princess Grace Foundation Annual Gala which was held at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City yesterday evening.

She wore a beautiful Valentino Fall 2011 Couture dress.

Her long-sleeve cocktail dress, which is covered in sparkling beaded embellishments, was paired with matching Christian Louboutin Super Vic satin heels.

Thankfully she added a dark pink lip colour as she was in serious danger of being totally washed out by this look.

Whilst the look is event appropriate – I think there was a conscious effort not to upstage the Princess – I don’t think this is quite BDOTW worthy.

What do you think?
