Anne HathawayAfter looking relatively chic in Givenchy on the red carpet at the London premiere of "Les Misérables" in a white Givenchy gown, Anne Hathaway turned up at the film's New York premiere last night in a completely uncharacteristic getup. Hathaway opted for a black taffeta dress from Tom Ford's Spring 2013 collection, complete with a cape and a thigh-high slit, which she paired with equally thigh-high gladiator heels from Ford that were more 50 Shades of Grey than "Les Misérables."
As a side note, apparently the odd footwear was custom made in vegan leather for Hathaway, which is about the only part of this outfit that feels remotely like her. While Hathaway has hit style highs in the past, her looks lately feel completely out of her comfort zone-and it shows. Maybe she's trying to offset the demure sweetness of her pixie cut, but the goth garb just looks bizarre.
While we were unimpressed with her attempt to look edgy, we can't say that we hate the clothes. We know a Tom Ford cape

.Though it may seem ridiculous to risk your life for a pair of perforated, plastic clogs, 18 Chinese counterfeiters did a bit of bad gambling when their knockoff Croc business was seized, and the offenders were sentenced to 46 years in prison and ordered to pay $450,896 in fines per person. Their misdeeds? Selling $128,752 pairs of knockoffs, with over $9.6 million worth of plastic clogs confiscated by officials.
Said Crocs' chief legal and administrative officer, Dan Hart: "If you attempt to produce or sell infringing Crocs products, we are going to find you. The lengthy prison terms and heavy fines handed down in these cases show that Chinese authorities are very serious about assisting us to eradicate the production of counterfeit Crocs products in China, and so are we."
Abolishing knockoffs of any sort is a very good thing, but there's something especially satisfying about getting rid of that many pairs of ugly, plastic clogs. It might be too much to ask

We're fresh off the fabulously glamorous front row of the Spring 2013 Bridal Market runway, and if there's one trend that resonated throughout each designer's collection it was the return to timeless and classic ladylike looks. Do we have the Duchess to thank for this? In the very stylish words of one Miss Anne Hathaway, Duchess Catherine is an "advocate for dressing like a lady...making looking appropriate really fun again." Designers have been quick to take note, and have upped the "refined and feminine" factor and translated it to a sophisticated, yet still adventurous and on-trend, modern look for today's bride.

Whether you're scouting a present for your dad, brother, boyfriend, or boy (space) friend, we've got you covered. You might even want to pick up some of these goods for yourself!
