Anne Hathaway might not have shown up to the Met Gala in Andy Sachs’ Chanel boots, but she channeled Karl Lagerfeld in her own way—with the help of Donatella Versace, in fact. The Devil Wears Prada star looked breathtaking in a strapless safety pin dress by Versace, designed à la Lagerfeld with white tweed, pearl accents, and camellia flower details.

“It was meant to be a marriage between Versace and Chanel,” Anne, who is the new face of the Italian fashion house, said of her dress in a red carpet interview with Vogue. A pair of fingerless gloves, platform heels, and Bulgari jewels completed her look.

The ensemble was equal parts sophisticated and sexy, thanks to the safety pin cutouts and the major leg slit, which technically slices across the whole length of the gown. Anne even gave a quick tutorial for how to pose in the look during her livestream interview. “There’s just something about this dress that makes you kind of want to hit it,” she said, popping out one hip and lifting her chin up high. “Get a little Rosalía going on in your head and live in the fantasy.”

Anne credits her stylist, Erin Walsh, for collaborating with Versace on the look. “I just do what Donatella tells me to do, very gratefully,” the actress said. “She sent me a sketch for this and I just went, ‘Well, alright!’”

The same attention to detail went into her beauty look for the night. She pointed out that her hairstylist, Orlando Pita, pinned a camellia from a Versace show in the ’90s to her hair, completing her voluminous half-updo. From hair to heels, Hathaway’s complete look is enough to wow Miranda Priestly herself.
