Anne Hathaway is still very much in the midst of her style renaissance – and we can't get enough.

Attending the premiere of her latest picture She Came to Me at the Berlin International Film Festival, the actress looked seriously sultry in a statement gown which came courtesy of her beloved Valentino - the label responsible for several of her killer outfits.

The Devil Wears Prada star took great pains to ensure that her most recent red carpet look was every bit as head-turning as her last (a sheer-back Versace mini dress with mega-chunky platform biker boots, in case you missed it).

This time around again she went for black, but Anne's ensemble was truly anything but boring.

Anne wore a column-shape mesh gown by Valentino 

The 40-year-old evoked classic Hollywood glamour via a column-like silhouette and the addition of sleek opera gloves, but her look was also infused with an unmistakable sultriness.

Her totally sheer gown enabled her beige bodysuit to peek through a mesh underlay of black polka dots and a lattice of bow ties. Clearly when it comes to fabric opacity, the 'less is more' approach is still reigning supreme since both the visible lingerie and naked dress trends re-entered the fashion sphere on the AW22 runways at Prada, Fendi and the like. Sheer delight.

The star opted for an unfussy updo 

A daring glimpse of skin is bang on trend, and we love how Anne amped up the level of drama via a pair of full-length gloves in glossy black leather. She wore her hair in a relaxed updo, allowing her dark French girl bangs to frame her face.

The actress stunned in a hooded Alaïa gown 

Earlier that day, Anne attended the She Came to Me photocall and served up some major Grace Jones-esque glam in a hooded Alaïa gown with a cinched-in leather waist panel.

Erin Walsh, the mastermind behind Anne's style rebirth, feels that "inner confidence" is key to pulling off a variety of different styles. "Annie is literally glowing," she told Vogue. "That doesn’t just come from clothes. It comes through stepping into your potential and embracing possibility."
