We might’ve been left scratching our heads over some of her “Les Miserables” premiere outfits—and we still can’t decide whether those leg-brace bondage heels were an adventurous hit or a ghastly miss—but there was no such confusion over Anne Hathaway’s look from the Museum of the Moving Image salute to Hugh Jackman this week. This ensemble? It’s pure Style Superstar.
Anne showed off her long limbs and swan neck in this blush-colored Nina Ricci dress with silver sequins, making her a spangled standout in the crowd at the event honoring “Les Mis” co-star Hugh Jackman. And while her similarly fashion-forward ensembles haven’t been a hit with critics this month, the actress was a statuesque beauty in this one; she’s so effortlessly glamorous that it’s easy to forget that the unusual gathered waist and drippy silver spangling would make this a hard look for most to pull off. With a gold box clutch and delicate jewelery—and, of course, her sleek short hair —this is a total knockout. Well-played, Anne.
Meanwhile, another stylish star was pushing the envelope in a somewhat different direction: Kristen Stewart, who’s been big on transparent and lacy looks lately, took this Erdem dress for a spin at the “On the Road” premiere. But while we’ve loved her daring duds at previous events, this ensemble serves as an excellent reminder that just because you’ve got great legs and can wear your dresses cut up to there, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you should. The runway original of this dress was knee-length, but KStew and her stylists drastically shortened it, making it look less like a daring sheath and more like a swimsuit cover-up—and with the neon heels, things take a definite turn for the tacky. Too bad; it would’ve looked great on her without the alterations.
