I haven’t looked through ALL of the Met Gala photos, but from what I’ve seen, very few celebrities really had fun with the “Punk: From Chaos to Couture” theme. I’m not sure if Anne Hathaway qualifies? Anne came as a guest of Valentino – she’s ALL about Valentino these days, Valentino designed her wedding dress, she wears a lot of Valentino on red carpets, and she came close to wearing a Valentino gown for the Oscars. This particular Valentino gown is nothing special (ugh, feathers), but it acts as a blank canvas (sort of) for her dramatic hair change: Annie’s a blonde now! I don’t know if this was just something she did to be “punk” or whatever and she’ll change it in a week. It’s a pretty dramatic change for just the Met Gala, you know?
Who does Blonde Annie remind you of? I can’t put my finger on it. There’s some January Jones there. Maybe some young Brigitte Nielsen? While the blonde doesn’t suit Anne, it’s really not as bad as I thought it would be. It does make her look less princess-y and more edgy.
Guess who else radically changed up their hair for the Met Gala? Nicole Richie. Nicole went for (temporary?) white-blue-grey and a really dark fake-tan. She wore Topshop. Can I just say? I actually love this dress. This might be one of my favorite dresses that I’ve seen so far. As for her overall look – I like that she tried something different and visually interesting for the punk theme.
