Anne Hathaway debuted her platinum blond hair wearing a seriously sheer gown at the annual Met Gala in New York on Monday. She was among a number of stars who took on dramatic 'dos for the occasion.
Hathaway went all in for this year's punk theme "Punk: From Chaos to Couture" in a black vintage
But her bleached pixie cut was one of the night's major takeaways. Hathaway ordinarily sports brunet locks, and this change dramatically diverged from her demure looks.
"It's just something I wanted to do forever and this seemed like a really good opportunity to give it a go. And if I didn't like it, I could blame it on fashion," she told E! while accompanied by legendary designer Valentino.
Nicole Richie also hit the red carpet with a new coif. The 31-year-old wore a long-sleeved Topshop gown but wowed the crowd with silver locks that were apparently achieved using paint.
"My recommendation to everybody is not to kiss me or touch me because it'll come off," she told E!.
A costume drama indeed!
