Anne Hathaway In Valentino – 2013 Met Gala


Showing us that blondes really do have more fun, Anne Hathaway took her pixie cut up a notch with a new platinum colour at the 2013 Met Gala in New York. Apparently, she was inspired by punk-goddess Debbie Harry of Blondie.

So Nicole Richie wasn’t the only one with a brave new hair hue on Monday.

The ‘Les Miserables’ actress completely surrendered to the evening’s punk theme, flaunting a surprising exhibitionist side with this Valentino Couture embellished vintage gown, accented with feathered cuffs.

The ziggy-zaggy beading of the too-sheer black dress did precious little to cover her curves. So she certainly brought the sexy, shock side of punk to the gala.

A Valentino Noir Lucite clutch and a bright yellow manicure completed the look.

I have to say, after a few underwhelming red-carpet moments this year, there is something about this devil-may-care, bad-girl side of Anne that is rather intriguing.

What do you think of her transformation?

    My favorite of the night. True to the theme yet still suited to the wearer. Fashionable and dramatic but not a costume. Even with the new hair and extra makeup we can still recognize Anne. Plus that dress is just pretty.

  2. justme May 7, 2013 at 18:02 #

    Yes to the hair and makeup, nooooooo to the dress.

  3. Dan Oliver May 7, 2013 at 17:34 #

    Another one of my best dressed of the night, love it from head to toe. The hair looks super hot on her

  4. Bee May 7, 2013 at 17:11 #

    Before seeing the look, I’d already imagined 50 different ways this could go wrong. But WOW, she stunned me, besides a few moment, she pretty much was just “good” during her award season appearances, but she totally knocked it out of the park with this. AMAZING.

  5. glenn May 7, 2013 at 16:49 #

    She looks AWFUL as blonde just horrible !!!
    DRESS 10 !!!

  6. Ellie May 7, 2013 at 16:15 #

    Alright, hands down, she is my number one at this event! She nailed it and looks so happy and true to herself!

  7. Jokzan Cordova May 7, 2013 at 16:12 #

    Dress chic punk it’s so hard, but Anne did it! she never goes wrong, She’s a fashionista DNA! I love her!

  8. magb May 7, 2013 at 16:02 #

    Love it! She looks bad ass!

  9. Moxie May 7, 2013 at 15:29 #

    I love this. Very daring and dramatic. A little too much sideboob, but even that isn’t bothering me. Sheer, but not trashy. She is working this look.

    Looks great with this chic punk look, but I hope she doesn’t keep this hair color.

  10. Bella May 7, 2013 at 15:23 #

    Wow! Didn’t expect to see Anne Hathaway in this stand-out (for the right reasons) creation. Spot-on and a BDOTN..

  11. EmmaWoodhouse May 7, 2013 at 14:52 #

    I have to say, the dress is REALLY revealing. i feel like she’s not wearing anything under it. So that trashy angle ruins the look for me, even though it is very punk. Her hair–well now, I think she’s rocking it! Very unexpected!

  12. Pedro May 7, 2013 at 14:13 #


    Sexy, fearless, fierce, stylish and gorgeous

  13. Katrin May 7, 2013 at 14:07 #

    It is really difficult to choose the best looks since there were many beautiful dresses, but I liked the girls more who had embraced the theme. This is my overall favourite.

  14. Nat May 7, 2013 at 13:38 #

    She finally looks like a woman. She is fierce on this look. She rocked and I loved it. Best dressed nominee.

  15. serenissima May 7, 2013 at 13:31 #

    Love it, head to toe. Adore the hair, makeup, attitude… Everything was perfect and on theme.

  16. Marko_M May 7, 2013 at 13:08 #

    Having such a strong love/hate thing for this look. Kudos on the daring transformation.

  17. Eve_V May 7, 2013 at 13:05 #

    Maybe it has something to do with my girl-crush on Anne Hathaway, that has reached the size of the universe by now, haha, but I completely LOVE it. From the hair, to makeup, to that stunning dress, to the attitude – she is perfection visualized.

  18. Giada May 7, 2013 at 13:04 #

    Wow! Top 5 Best Dressed!

  19. Amy May 7, 2013 at 11:54 #

    I’m not a big fan of the dress but girl rocks the blonde hairdo. The attitude is definitely there and she’s respected the theme so bravo for that.

  20. Louise May 7, 2013 at 11:48 #

    Completely blown away! In a good way. I think my heart skipped a beat when I saw this. Absolutely breathtaking!!

  21. Jess2 May 7, 2013 at 11:09 #

    HELL YES!!!! The girl is killing it! I am completely obsessed with this look and who knew blonde would work for her! Love it! Take notes ladies, this is how you do the Met Gala!

  22. e May 7, 2013 at 10:30 #

    I’m surprised the blond looks that good on her. One of my best dressed of the night.

  23. naomie May 7, 2013 at 10:02 #

    I applaud her daring attitude but I can not bring myself to like the 80’s hair or the Joan Collins-esque dress.

    • Nat39 May 7, 2013 at 22:20 #

      Her attitude is what sells the look, otherwise can’t see anything good about it either.

  24. june May 7, 2013 at 09:35 #

    i’m pretty sure we’re seeing all of anne — quite literally in this case because i’m sure i see nipple as well — but you know, shock was part of punk. the hair, the attitude, my favourite punk moment at the met ball

  25. Alicat May 7, 2013 at 09:29 #

    It has shock factor just like punk itself. She looks absolutely amazing in this uber sexy gown. Hair and makeup ramp it up even further. My best dressed for the event.

  26. anne gaelle May 7, 2013 at 09:16 #

    fun, unexpected, bold, beautiful. An outfit definitely not Anne Hathaway.
    This is punk, go beyond the line of comfort

  27. Ami May 7, 2013 at 09:10 #

    YES! I’m a bit bothered by those weird feathers, but she really delivered with this.

  28. SkirtTheIssue May 7, 2013 at 09:01 #

    I’m usually underwhelmed by Anne, but this blew my mind- sensational!She looks like a rebellious, sexy 80’s supermodel on the red carpet of some Euro-trash party- love it!

    • Fiona May 7, 2013 at 09:50 #

      She reminds of me Brigitte Nielsen. I am still decided how I feel about this dress, I love the whole look in so many ways except the sheerness – she is not flat-chested and I wonder how comfortable she was in that the whole night, eating dinner etc? (The night is after all more than just the red carpet)

    • Jones19 May 7, 2013 at 13:05 #

      Love your description. It’s so spot on!

  29. Pene May 7, 2013 at 09:01 #

    nailed it

  30. Jai May 7, 2013 at 08:38 #

    Wow, who knew she could carry off blonde so well?! I have to say, this is definitely one of the best of the night. She brought it to the ball, which is what the event is all about. Well done Anne!

  31. Charlotte May 7, 2013 at 08:34 #

    Her hair ! Why ?!! It’s so awful and so 80’s. And the dress is too much. She looks like she’s trying too hard.

  32. Dorothy May 7, 2013 at 08:17 #

    It’s been a long time since I’ve fallen such in love with an Anne Hathaway red carpet look – everything works, the hair, the dress, the make-up, the attitude. Perfect.

  33. Ioana May 7, 2013 at 08:13 #

    I usually dislike Anne’s red carpet choices, but on this occasion, at this event, the look is a HIT!

    Bravo for the transformation and the risk which paid off, in my opinion. She looks punk and glamour and quite unique.

  34. Alice Gu May 7, 2013 at 07:23 #

    my fav look of the night!

  35. mandy May 7, 2013 at 07:19 #

    This is her in-your-face moment for us dishing her Oscar moment. Best freaking dressed. Thank god she went back to Valentino.

  36. the ogre May 7, 2013 at 07:10 #

    ok i hadnt seen her post before emmy’s. i can only say my jaw is still on my desk. anne hathaway does punk really well huh? really well! i am in awe! i dont mind the side boob or the sheerness. she carries it off really well. in my book she has so compensated for her disappointing oscars look!

  37. Noemi May 7, 2013 at 06:50 #

    I don’t like the side exposition of breasts, but she doesn’t look vulgar at all, she never does. I think this is a perfect look for the night. She looks great.

  38. Gabby M May 7, 2013 at 06:45 #

    I want this dress… but Id only wear it in the bedroom… looks very 1960s sexy time bed dress

  39. Aline May 7, 2013 at 06:40 #

    J’ADORE!!! Easily one of the bests! The gown is stunning and the platinum blonde hair is perfect for the event! A+!

  40. Stephanie May 7, 2013 at 06:09 #

    Breath of fresh air. Looks good AND in theme! A+ for Miss Hathaway!

  41. Prudence May 7, 2013 at 05:49 #


  42. kim May 7, 2013 at 05:48 #

    Anne looks spectacular. She took my breath away.

    • Mandy May 7, 2013 at 10:04 #

      Agree. She pulls this look off so well. She should dress like this more often.

      • Pati May 7, 2013 at 18:19 #

        I seriously think this might be my all time favourite look from Anne. She looks stunning here.

        • Lily May 8, 2013 at 03:24 #

          Patty I’d have to agree with you!

  43. TL May 7, 2013 at 05:47 #

    I like it, the hair and makeup goes really well with the dress, and the feather, it actually looks good this time.

  44. Jan May 7, 2013 at 05:46 #

    She totally committed to the theme. Only like 5 celebrities committed to it entirely. She looks absolutely amazing. This is definitely a huge redeeming moment for her, after her underwhelming Prada gown at the Oscars. Easily my best dressed of the night! She looks like a rockstar.

    • admmgz May 8, 2013 at 19:08 #


  45. Poppy May 7, 2013 at 05:46 #

    Good on her for being daring

  46. Christine May 7, 2013 at 05:44 #

    She owened this look. She killed it! Werk it!!!

    • Christine May 7, 2013 at 05:45 #

      Owned it and shutting it down.

      • Rashmi May 7, 2013 at 06:12 #

        +1! Owned it completely… Oh I am loving the transformation !!

      • Chivonne May 7, 2013 at 09:48 #

        100% Agreement. Finally a look I love from her, she should do naughty, sexy and brave all the time. The sweet innocent girl look is not her thing. Who would’ve thought!!!

        • sara May 7, 2013 at 19:24 #

          Yes! very sexy, yet not too much. She nailed it and looks great! Love the hair!

    • Beta May 7, 2013 at 08:51 #

      +1 LOVE! Apriori, i’d never expect Anne+Valentino to be so punk!
      one of the top10

      • Alexandra Wong May 7, 2013 at 09:58 #

        +100000 love! With this hit, she redeems herself for the last couple of misses.

    • gabis May 7, 2013 at 14:00 #

      Totally agree. She’s working this so hard I’m not even minding the side boob. My best dressed without a doubt.

    • dee May 7, 2013 at 14:10 #

      I totally agree. Best dressed of the night IMO.

      • NooG May 7, 2013 at 15:54 #

        If not the best dressed!

    • TeaAtTwo May 8, 2013 at 15:22 #

      I totally agree. Where was this Anne during awards season?!

  47. Brazilian fan May 7, 2013 at 05:44 #

    This style, really did not work for me,really horrible…

  48. jas May 7, 2013 at 05:41 #

    Love the hair. Dress would have been better without the feathers, but props for putting it out there.

  49. Yeliz May 7, 2013 at 05:40 #

    I only have two nitpicks about this look, the feathered cuffs and the side boob. Other than that, this is an amazing look. I was pretty shocked when I first was her with her new hair, but now I kinda like it.

    • Lyo May 7, 2013 at 13:36 #


  50. Mmg May 7, 2013 at 05:38 #

    I like it. Very sexy for Anne
