Yay or Nay? Anne Hathaway Wears Tom Ford's Bondage Sandals At Les Miserables Premiere

We’re used to seeing Anne Hathaway in frothy Valentino and princess couture – even her wedding dress was candy pink tulle. But last night for the NY premiere of Les Mis she stepped out in a Gaga-esque Tom Ford black taffeta cape dress with a high thigh slit to show off a pair of risky knee high bondage boots. Yes, we are talking about the SAME Anne Hathaway. 

So let's start with the shoes - bandage, leather and strappy. One remark overhead at Grazia HQ: "It's like a leg brace for a Victorian child." Perhaps a little harsh. So what do you think about the Tom Ford gladiator sandals? Daring and sexy or a fashion car crash? And then there's the question of the Spring 2013 Tom Ford dress... fashion forward or fashion miss? She topped off the vamp look with dark, dark red lips.

We reported back in September that this Tom Ford collection was filled with buckled straps, elastic harnesses and PVC pencil skirts - it's all very, very bondage. We love the edginess of the look - but can't help but think this is more RiRi than Anne Hathaway?

Love it or loath it this look is a far cry from the white pearl Givenchy couture gown she wore to the Les Mis premiere in London. So what is with this dramatic transformation? Back at the London Premiere Anne did tell us that her hair cut has been influencing her style as she said: ‘I’m getting used to the cut now and I have completely fallen in love with collars. 'There isn’t a collared shirt that I don’t love right now and I like the last gentleman look more than ever, but I still like to go between mannish and super feminine styles’. Hmm perhaps the pixie crop is making her want to channel her inner RiRi.

Or could Anne be inspired by 50 shades of Grey? Bear with us here… WWD is reporting that 50 Shades has caused a rise in raunchy legwear. There has been a boost in hosiery, dominatrix style legwear, chains, studs and metal beads. French lingerie designer Chantal Thomass said to WWD all her assistants have read the book. 'I think there will be an impact, the same way as there was an impact of ‘Sex and the City’ on lingerie, daring to do sexier pieces.' La Perla creative director Giovanni Bianchi added: 'Regarding hosiery, the sexiest styles are always bestsellers, and I think that now we should focus even more on legwear collections featuring the same lace details and embroideries enriching our lingerie collections.'

Amanda Seyfried also went for a gothic, dramatic look at the NY premiere (although much less daring than Anne) in a gold bodice and black skirt Alexander McQueen gown and dark eyes. Samantha Barks went for all out glamour in a slinky metallic Stella McCartney gown.

Take a look through the gallery above to see Anne's dramatic new style and let us know what you think....
