Anne Hathaway

How the mighty fall so quickly. Or how the mighty's hair falls, in this case. It was just Monday night at the Met Gala when Anne Hathaway wowed us with her modern peroxide ‘do. It had volume and character and gave the Oscar-winning actress an edgy vibe.

Two nights later, her once-edgy blond hair has been styled into a bad pixie style that looks better suited for someone of the Vulcan race.

To make matters worse, to match the Star Trek coif, Anne's makeup artist, surely in the grip of a mind meld, completed the look with silvery white mod shadow and a pale lip.

Ladies, we're sorry, but if you decide to style your hair after a past decade, assume that your makeup shouldn't follow suit unless you are attending a costume party.

We wish Anne had some flush to her cheeks. Come on! She's wearing a white dress, silvery white shadow, a pale lip and has bleach blond hair. Girl needs some color!

Besides the brown on her eyebrows, that is, though that isn't very much color at all. It did give the look some depth and we do love her perfectly black-lined eyes, which made her brown eyes pop. 

Beauty Bailout: We totally understand that it's tough to style short hair, especially while trying to grow it out. But we dreamed a dream of those voluminous waves she wore Monday night and hoped she would share the same vision. If she wants a sexy option, she should try slicking it back for the red carpet.

As for the makeup, if you find yourself wearing white and you want to do your eyes in white or rock a silver shadow, you must add a little color to your face to avoid looking like you just stepped out of a sci-fi movie (or even worse, a coffin)! Which means pale pink lipstick is definitely out.

If you're feeling tame opt for a soft coral lipstick like L'Oreal Colour Riche Lipcolour in Tropical Coral or, if you're willing to go bold (which we highly recommend), try a four alarm red like Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Legendary – Cream.

Regardless of which lipstick you choose, make sure you add some rosy to those cheeks to avoid looking washed out. If your skin tends towards the dry side try a Tarte Cheek Stain, which will give you a natural flush and add a little highlight to your cheeks. If your skin is oilier, you're going to want to go the powder blush route with a blush like Dior Rosy Glow Healthy Glow Awakening Blush, which is a universal color that will work with your skin's chemistry to match your natural flush.

We hope Anne will stop taking inspiration from the USS Enterprise and returns to the edginess she flaunted at the Met Gala or we're going to be forced to serve her with a citation (and don't forget the Beauty Police presides over the entire galaxy).
