Anne Hathaway doesn’t do anything half-way. She ran with the punk rock theme at the Met Gala, debuting a brand new platinum do, (which goes nicely with her shiny new Oscar gold.) Here is her complete hair and beauty breakdown for the night.
Adam Breuchard for Laura Mercier
Anne’s new do, which inspired Breuchard to “use a new, bright colour palette”
A flawless, “clean” face was the perfect canvas for the look
Breuchaud first applied Laura Mercier Foundation Primer ($32), to give Hathaway’s skin an “even, lasting finish.”
Then, he used a damp sponge to apply Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 in Porcelain ($43) to even out her skin tone and give the skin an “amazingly sheer veil of color.”
Lastly, he lightly dusted on Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder ($22) to set the Tinted Moisturizer and ensure the skin kept its “dewy finish” throughout the night.
Breuchaud went with a “bold electric blue smoky eye” to pay homage to the “punk” theme
First, Breuchaud mixed Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Orchid ($24) with Laura Mercier Matte Eye Colour in Deep Night ($23).
In order to deepen the look, he applied Laura Mercier Crème Eye Liner in Noir ($22) to her lash line and blended the eye liner throughout the corner of her eye using the Laura Mercier Corner Eye Colour Brush ($25).
Breuchaud added the final touch of glamour by applying multiple coats of Laura Mercier Faux Lash Mascara in Black ($24) to the top and bottom lashes.
Fresh, natural lips complemented the dramatic eye
Breuchaud applied Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Pink Blush ($26), which he described as “beautiful soft pink” to Hathaway’s lips.
Celebrity stylist Sascha Breuer
“Drawing inspiration from unforgettable punk icons like Poly Styrene from X-ray Spex and Joan Jett, I decided to go for a look that’s glam, edgy and yet very youthful and fun,” says Sascha. “To enhance her punk look further we decided to take her hair to the next level: A new cool Platinum blonde color and the sharp slightly boyish finish with loads of texture were the perfect match.”
Start by applying a golf ball sized amount of Wella Professionals Extra Volume Mousse to damp hair for the perfect foundation and to provide hold and volume.
Blow-dry the hair into shape using your fingers or a skeleton brush. Dry the longer hair on top back and upwards by gently pulling the hair away from the scalp to boost the volume and some lift to it.
Push brush and dry the sides flat to the head backwards allowing them to set narrow to the head.
Once the hair is completely dry use a small amount of Wella Professionals Bold Move styling paste to spread the paste evenly between the palm of your hands and work the product through the mid length and ends to create a deep, slightly messy texture.
Mist hair with Wella Professionals Stay Firm Finishing Spray to ensure that your style will last all night.
