Anne Hathaway sported a bold new hair color when she arrived at 2013 Met Gala in New York City on Monday.
The Dark Knight Rises star stunned the crowd at the the Metropolitan Museum of Art's annual Costume Institute event to celebrate the Punk: Chaos Couture exhibit with a platinum blonde hair. Hathaway, 30, who famously chopped her locks for role in Les Miserables, said her inspiration for the brand new look came from one of the biggest punk singers of the 1980s.
"I don't know that you could tell it but looking at me, but Debbie Harry was [my inspiration]," Hathaway reportedly told Vogue.
Hathaway complimented the look with a semi-sheer gown designed by Valentino, the Italian fashion brand she often collaborates with. She discussed the process of how she chose the floor-sweeping dress that won raves reviews in fashion reports.
"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 said of her conversation with the designer. "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!"
"I took the chaos thing as far as the couture would allow," she added.
Enstars reported that Hathaway's famous pixie haircut earned the title of Most Influential Film Haircut of All Time in April.
In a poll conducted by the Hairdressing Council of Great Britain and Universal Pictures, Hathaway earned the largest percentage of votes by 1,000 people, according to Marie Claire UK. Jennifer Aniston's hairstyle came in second for her look in Along Came Polly and Audrey Hepburn's classic updo in Breakfast at Tiffany's earned the third highest nod.
Hathaway revealed in an interview that she brought in her own hairdresser to have her hair cut off on-camera for the emotional scene in Les Miserables where the character she played, Fantine, becomes so destitute she is forced to cut her hair to sell it to make ends meet.
'When you're seeing it in the film, that is my actual hair being cut off," Hathaway told NOW.
The deed paid off in more ways than one - she earned several honors for her performance including the Best Supporting Actress Oscar in February.
