In a dazzling display of glamour and style, Hollywood and runway icons descended upon the Royal Albert Hall on Monday, December 4, for the prestigious 2023 British Fashion Awards.

The star-studded event celebrated creativity and championed the next generation of talent while raising funds for the British Fashion Council Foundation.

Hosted by Maya Jama and Kojey Radical, the red carpet saw an array of luminaries such as Kate Moss, Amal Clooney, Rita Ora, Lisa Rinna, Pamela Anderson, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Among the trendsetters and fashion change-makers was the ever-elegant Anne Hathaway, who graced the occasion in a tribute to honoree Valentino Garavani of Maison Valentino.

The Interstellar star‘s ethereal presence was enhanced by a vintage Valentino Haute Couture gown from the Italian luxury fashion house’s Spring/Summer 1993 collection.

Draping her statuesque figure, the archival cream gown gracefully featured a broad scoop neckline, a textured ribbed bodice creating a corset-like silhouette, and a tiered fringe skirt that cascaded elegantly to the floor.

Anne walked the red carpet with Valentino’s partner in life and business, Giancarlo Giammetti, who accepted the Outstanding Achievement Award on behalf of Valentino Garavani for his creative contribution to the fashion industry.

In an interview with the Eileen actress‘ former stylist Law Roach, outside the entrance to the ceremony, Giancarlo Giammetti revealed the gown’s unique inspiration, stating (via Vogue), “It’s vintage Valentino, and Valentino designed it thinking about spaghetti.”

Anne replied with humor, saying, “And I’ve always dreamed of being pasta.”

Styled by Erin Walsh, the She Came to Me star elevated her stature with sophisticated white satin pointed-toe stiletto heels, infusing the final touch to her refined ensemble.

Completing her look, Anne adorned herself with a dazzling white gold and diamond chain necklace and matching drop earrings – exquisite pieces from Bulgari‘s High Jewellery collection. An emerald ring, also by the Italian luxury fashion house, added a touch of allure.

The Les Miserables star’s dark brunette locks were artfully arranged in loose curls, gracefully falling behind her shoulders. A shimmery eye, feathered lashes, and a lustrous, rosy pink pout accentuated her radiant complexion.
