Anne Hathaway's woodland-style beauty look

by Kathy Saunders - Friday September 21, 2012 - 13h20

Anne Hathaway turned up for a night at the ballet in a flurry of leaves... well, leaves are falling and the summer is officially over now, folks! Anne's trademark brown hair got the chop for her latest role as Fantine in "Les Misérables". We think that her controversial short 'do really came into it's own at the New York Ballet Gala, allowing the actress to show off great make-up.

Pixie cut for a pixie

She looked a bit like a pixie, regardless of her hair, as she glided about on the red carpet in an autumnal flurry. She was dressed in a long, woodland-inspired gown that was pretty sheer and, not unlike Tarzan, there were a few well-placed leaves...

Still, we don't think Tarzan, or Jane for that matter, could have whipped out a make-up style as impressive as Anne's last night.

Getting seasonal

We all know that smokey eyes are everywhere right now, but we never really considered creating a season-appropriate version of them before. Anne's smokey eyes involved a careful blend of gold, green and brown eyeshadow, some heavy black kohl around her eyes and a coat of mascara.

The metallic eyeshadow combination matched the overall colour scheme of her entire outfit and really drew attention to her eyes as she laughed at/for the cameras. Rose blush and a clear lipgloss finished off her make-up and added even more light to this autumn-tastic look.

Getting musical

In the upcoming cinematic epic that is "Les Misérables", we get to see a more musical side to Anne as her character, Fantine, sings the iconic musical number "I Dreamed A Dream"... forget about Susan Boyle, let's see what Catwoman can do with it! By all accounts, Anne Hathaway has an impressive set of pipes, so we should be in for a treat.

"Les Misérablés", the film, is a project that has been talked about in tinsel town since the 1980s. Finally, one of the most famous musicals in history will hit the big screen in December.

We're already contemplating what kind of winter wonderland eyeshadow Anne Hathaway is planning for the premieres...
