Anne Hathaway brings back the Versace safety pin dress at the Met Gala… three decades after Liz Hurley shocked in THAT iconic frock
Anne Hathaway was a sexy bombshell in a plunging white Versace gown at the Met Gala on Monday night.
The 40-year-old longtime actress – who is the face of the brand’s Icon campaign -modeled a look stitched together with gold safety pins.
The Armageddon Time star teased her perky cleavage in the look, which was extremely low cut and boasted a thigh-high slit.
Anne turned heads in the ensemble, commanding attention as she rocked its fingerless opera gloves.
It also came with a jacket that she draped over her arms during some red carpet moments.
Anne’s look piggybacked off Liz Hurley’s iconic black safety pin Versace dress from 1994.

Fashion history: The 90s dress worn by Hurley was created with black silk and lycra and stole the show at then-boyfriend Hugh Grant’s Four Weddings and a Funeral movie premiere
Anne’s getup was created with tweed and she described the look as a ‘marriage between Versace and Chanel.’
Speaking to Vogue on the red carpet, the mother-of-two said, ‘I just do what Donatella [Versace] tells me to do, very gratefully.
‘She sent me a sketch for this and I just went, “Well, alright.” 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.’
The version worn by Hurley to then-boyfriend Hugh Grant’s Four Weddings and a Funeral movie premiere was originally modeled by Helena Christensen in Versace’s Spring/Summer 1994 runway show.
Hathaway was decked out in Bulgari jewelry, including a decadent choker that complemented the gold and pearl hardware adorning the gown.
On her feet she donned a pair of satin, ivory, pointy-toe platform heels.
And she leaned into the role of vixen with her rich brunette hair styled in a voluminous half-up/half-down look.
Her makeup was soft and subtle, expertly applied using pink tones on her cheeks and pout.

The 2023 Met Gala returned to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on Monday evening, with everyone from Kim Kardashian to Paris Hilton set to attend the annual fundraising event.
Since 1948 stars have ascended the majestic staircase into a very exclusive party where no selfies are allowed.
In keeping with tradition, the event will be held on the first Monday of May. It is scheduled to begin at 6:30PM EST on May 1, 2023.
Fans can watch the event unfold in real-time via a livestream on Vogue.
This year, the ball’s theme is Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty. The late German designer was Chanel’s long-time creative director. He passed at age 85 in 2019.
His beloved cat, Choupette, has even been invited to the festivities.
The decision to honor Karl has sparked controversy given the many offensive remarks he has made over the years, from slamming the #MeToo movement to opposing same-sex marriage.
‘I’m against it for a very simple reason: In the 60s they all said we had the right to the difference. And now, suddenly, they want a bourgeois life,’ he told Vice of same-sex marriage.

‘It’s difficult to imagine—one of the papas at work and the other at home with the baby. How would that be for the baby? I don’t know. I see more lesbians married with babies than I see boys married with babies. And I also believe more in the relationship between mother and child than in that between father and child.’
While he ultimately showed his support for same-sex marriage at his spring 2013 Chanel haute couture show, he still said he was ‘less keen’ on same-sex couples adopting children, according to AP.
Along with the Vogue editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, who runs and hosts the annual event, the 2023 MET Gala will also be co-hosted by Penelope Cruz, Dua Lipa, Michaela Coel and also Roger Federer.
While the show may be known for its glitzy and over-the-top red carpet — with details of what occurs inside often remaining mysterious — at its heart, it is a fundraising event for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute.
