Anne Hathaway certainly isn’t the first celeb to shed her sartorial inhibitions with her long hair (see: the Miley Cyrus metamorphosis), but she has proven herself to be far and away one of the most daring. If last week’s love-it-or-loathe-it Givenchy gown wasn’t proof enough for you, this elaborate Tom Ford look should do the trick. Anne is working the Rooney Mara angle pretty hard here in this black high-necked column dress, but turn her ’round and there’s some kind of attached cape situation going on, too. Add the strappy thigh-high bondage shoes (boots, perhaps?) into the mix and you’ve got yourself a look for sure.
One of the key attributes to pulling off an ensemble this ambitious is looking like you know what you’re doing, also known as confidence, and Anne has that in spades… so I’m not hating the overall effect probably half as much as I should. I just think the lady is kind of working it. What say you?
