This 2009 gown with mother-of-pearl iridescence nearly matched Anne Hathaway
's megawatt smile. "Anne is so lovely and etherealshe reminds me of the great actresses of Hollywood's Golden Age," says Giorgio Armani
. "For this reason I dressed her as a type of fairy-mermaid, pure and sparkling. The strapless gown is derived from our Prive couture collection and has Swarovski crystals on a diagonal and oversize paillettes at the hem. The champagne color was meant to match her complexion so it would seem like a second skin on her. She looked truly breathtaking."
