Anne Hathaway goes blond for Met Gala (plus other star hairdos)
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.
The Oscar-winning “Les Miserables” star went all in for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala. It’s the yearly ball in which celebs and fashionista amp up the volume and wear some opulently dramatic looks, All the Rage reports.
Hathaway went all in for this year’s punk theme “Punk: From Chaos to Couture” in a black vintage Valentino gown with sheer black panels that left little to the imagination. Had one of them gone rogue and shifted, the dress would have revealed even more than the ample sideboob already on display. Guess she didn’t learn her lesson from Nipplegate at the Oscars.
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!.
Sarah Jessica Parker wore a daring a faux-hawk-like helmet from milliner Philip Treacy that titillated Jennifer Lawrence, who wore Dior. Miley Cyrus seemed to have styled her hair by sticking her finger in an electrical outlet, as her short blond locks went every which way, and Jennifer Lopez sported a sky-high pompadour while wearing a spotted Michael Kors gown for the ball.
A costume drama indeed!
