No matter what you think about Anne Hathaway, you can't fault her for not taking chances. She co-hosted the Oscars before she turned 30 and shaved her head on camera for her role in "Les Misérables." One of those risks resulted in an award —the other, needless to say, did not.
On Tuesday, the actress took part in another act of bravery (albeit a much smaller one) when she wore white and cream to the premiere of her movie "Song One" in New York. She combined a pure white Theory top and pants with a decidedly off-white blazer from Iro. Her pointed pumps were Chrisitian Louboutin and also bright white.
It is a hard look to pull off, but Hathaway nailed it, in my opinion. By wearing only one piece in a different tone and having that piece be an outer layer, the look maintains a cohesive feeling from head to toe. The sheer fabric of the top also differentiates it from the pants, adding dimension to the ensemble that might otherwise have appeared too uniform underneath the jacket.
White is a great color for Hathaway. Her pale skin is warm enough to glow in comparison, and the subtle, dark smoky eye makeup doesn't feel overly sexy. Plus, her dark brown cropped hair has grown out to just the right length to feel effortless and fun — two words I haven't used to describe Hathaway in a long time.
Oh, and the best part of this whole look? She changed into white Stan Smiths after the step-and-repeat.
