Many of the headlines reporting on the Punk-themed Metropolitan Museum of Art Punk: Chaos to Couture Costume Gala held Tuesday evening (May 6) in New York City entice people to take a look at Anne Hathaway’s new blonde do. Us Weekly (via OMG at Yahoo) noted that along with “rocking a bold new hair color,” the Oscar-winning brunette also rocked a vintage 1992 Valentino dress from the punk rock era. But what most of the photos from the red carpet don’t show is that Hathaway’s “bold” look included being totally nude under that sheer dress.
Although most of the videos and photos of the stunning Hathaway hint that the long black dress shows a bit more of the “Les Miserables” star, lighting, the strategic patterned designs in the dress, and Hathaway’s just-so posing kept most photos (and video) from exposing too much to the cameras.
But that was most photos. The Daily Mail posted slightly more intimate shots of the 30-year-old.
As it turns out, the talented Mrs. Adam Shulman was wearing absolutely nothing under the dress. (And, again, since many of these incidents are purposeful, it begs the question of whether or not they can truly be labeled wardrobe “malfunctions.”) Shots show her breasts in all their glory, shaded slightly by the sheer fabric, not to mention a photo of the slender actress’ derriere.
Hathaway told Vogue.com her look was inspired by Debbie Harry. That punk-era worthy was also in attendance at the Met Costume Gala, as was quite a number of stars and designers. And Anne Hathaway’s new blonde hairstyle wasn’t the only hair getting noticed at the event. Maxim’s top-listed “Hot 100” girl Miley Cyrus sported a bleach-tipped spiked do and Nicole Richie went with a full-on white that turned plenty of heads.
“I couldn’t believe it when he sent me the picture because he asked me if I wanted to wear archive . . He said, ‘Well, have you ever done anything punk, darling?'” Hathaway laughed when asked about her dress selection. “Princess, maybe! He sent me this one and I said, ‘Oh my god, I love it. It’s fabulous! First and only [choice] as soon as I saw it!”
She added, “I took the chaos thing as far as the couture would allow.”
She most certainly did, if by chaos she meant eschewing establishment norms like wearing underwear or underclothes. As for the couture, her look was more new wave than punk, but there doesn’t seem to be anyone complaining.
Nearly all the sheer nude photos have not framed her more southerly nether region. A few that do still leave a little to the imagination. Still, it would seem that now-blonde Hathaway spent a lot of time strategically positioning her clutch purse or standing with a leg forward to block shots that might capture her as a full frontal nude.
Not that Hathaway hasn’t been one to show off her naughty bits before, her wardrobe malfunction — of wearing nothing down there — at the premiere of “Les Miserables” was a headliner for days.
