Trying out a new edgy look for a night, Anne Hathaway heads to an LA premiere with her boyfriend Adam Shulman on April 8. Anne and her man joined director Daryl Wein at the premiere of his indie flick Breaking Upwards at the Silent Movie Theatre in Hollywood, trading her usual girl-next-door style for a chic biker inspired look. Anne started with a sexy LBD with asymmetrical zippers on the front (get the look in Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent's Zip Mini Dress in Black) topped with a cropped leather motorcycle jacket from the Bird by Juicy Couture line (I'm lusting for Joe's Jeans' Moto Jacket in Black) and fierce studded peeptoe booties (get the laced up look with Gwyneth Shoes' Tanya in Black). Anne carried a flashy python clutch (love the rosette detail on Inge Christopher's Marie Metallic Boa Clutch in Gold) and added a simple coin pendant necklace (personalize the look with Jessica Elliot's Vermeil Initial Necklace in Vermeil) and dangly earrings to complete the 'fit. It's not flawless, but I'm definitely impressed that she's trying out such a hard style compared to her usual wardrobe. Gives off a much stronger impression, don't you think? Anne rarely comes out to indie premieres, but this flick marks the exception as I'm sure she can relate to the subject matter. Breaking Upwards is inspired by the director's real life experiment with monogamy he embarked on with his girlfriend after dating for over 4 years, just like Anne and ex Raffaelo Follieri (minus the whole jail thing). Director Daryl Wein explained the real life sitch to the NY Daily News: “Across the board, everyone was like, ‘What are you doing? There’s no way this could work!’ But we thought it was a smart thing to do, and we still do think that. We started dating when Zoe was 21 and I was 19. We learned a lot about ourselves and each other that year. The most difficult thing was emotionally keeping those other relationships separate from what we were.” Interesting perspective! Have any of you readers with long-term lovers tried out a similar scenario?
