Anne Hathaway wore Versace

Proving that her style renaissance is still going strong, the 40-year-old radiated sultry glamour in a Versace gown which featured the brand’s signature safety pins. 

The actress is no stranger to a traffic-stopping Versace moment, as the current face of the label's Versace Icons collection and campaign. When asked how she put together her show stopping look, the actress joked, “You're giving me too much credit. I just do what Donatella tells me to do.” 

“She [Donatella Versace] sent me a sketch for this and I just went well all right. But I do have to say I work with an amazing team, my stylist, Erin Walsh, she always puts everything together so it's really her that does the collaboration, I'm just a lucky girl.”

Styled by Erin, the Devil Wears Prada star teamed her incredible gown with a vintage style triple-strand choker, which gave us serious 80s royal vibes. The yellow gold pavé-set diamond (34.85 ct) piece was from Bulgari's High Jewelry Monete collection, and starred a silver coin (Lucania, Velia, 400-350 B.C.) as its centrepiece. Anne wore the statement choker alongside multiple High Jewelry rings and a pair of Divas’ Dream earrings.

Anne also excelled in the beauty department, sporting a vintage hair piece, “I have to give a shout out to my hair stylist, Orlando Peta,” explained Anne, who went on to say, “He brought a Camellia from a Versace show in the nineties.” The look was the perfect marriage between the iconic Italian and French fashion houses, as the Camellia she sported, despite being a Versace piece, is actually the signature flower of Chanel.

The Met Gala was imbued with the spirit of the late Karl Lagerfeld this year. The dress code honoured the legendary German-born designer's unique creative mind, presenting guests with the opportunity to pay homage to his exceptional sartorial back catalogue.

Coinciding with the opening of Costume Institute's 'Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty' exhibition, New York's iconic Metropolitan Museum of Art opened its doors to a wave of show stopping ensembles that captured the essence of the designer's impressive career.
