Anne Hathaway Is Effortlessly Beautiful In Valentino Couture At Ballet Event

It feels like forever since there were some proper old-school glamorous gowns to write about so the New York City Ballet's autumn gala arrived at just the right time. As did Anne Hathaway.

The actress brought her fashion A-game to the red carpet with the trailing floorsweeper by Valentino - a nod to the fact that the designer was being honoured at the evening's event.

And when you're wearing a little something from Valentino's couture line, there is literally no point in trying to compete with it in the arenas of accessories or beauty so just do as Anne did - tiny box clutch and a light touch on the makeup front - and let the dress work its magic.
