Prada Power Women: Michelle Williams & Anne Hathaway


The good witch in white: Michelle Williams walking the yellow brick road

Powerful women wear Prada: here are two of Hollywood's brightest stars clad in creations by the Italian label. First, we have the delightfully diminutive Michelle Williams looking impish in a swept pixie cut at the première of her highly anticipated new film, "Oz The Great and Powerful".

The multiple Oscar nominee was dressed head to toe in Prada, from her Fall 2012 cream "Cady Double" cap-sleeved dress to her T-strap black satin sandals. Both items were encrusted with Swarovski crystals: we absolutely adore the ultra-feminine embroidered mirrored flowers on her statement gown, although the length seemed a bit awkward for her frame - an inch or two longer would have made this a true winner.

Still, kudos to Williams for opting to keep her ensemble jewelry-free, which would have made her already embellished outfit too fussy. Sidenote: her makeup was really on-point here: her lightly smoked brown lids and rosy cheeks imbued just enough color to her face to match her glittering outfit.

Color for once! A nice relief from the usual monochromatic outfits donned by Anne Hathaway

Meanwhile, another (coincidentally) short-cropped Oscar nominee was seen in Paris earlier this month for the French premiere of her award-winning musical. Anne Hathaway was no Fantine on that occasion - the actress looked like a bona fide star in her custom Prada strapless gown in fuchsia satin, accented with crimson stones at the neckline.

The color worked wonders for her skintone, and the column cut was ultra-flattering for Hathaway's lean frame...even if the puckering at the bust was a tad distracting. Still, the pink really popped in photos, so this is overall a winning look in our books.
