Anne Hathaway literally shined at this year’s Met Gala.
The Interstellar actress attended the gala rocking a gold dress that seemed more Jedi than East Asia.
It was easy to see why a lot of people thought she was paying homage to the Star Wars universe instead of the Asian continent.
After all, it was May 4th, which is unofficially known as Star Wars day.
Plus, the long, shiny, metallic gold gown with the matching hood looks like something a Jedi knight would wear.
Except for the color, that is. Jedi knights usually go for a more casual, blend-into-the environment look.

The actress even seemed to affirm her gown’s sci-fi inspiration when she told reporters on the red carpet that “I kind of feel like I’m from the Deco future.”
But whether or not Hathaway was just acting out her dream of being a Jedi, she did stand-out in an occasion when celebrities are known to don out-of-this world garments.
The long, cap-sleeved gown skimmed her slender figure and the hood perfectly framed her flawless face. She completed her look with a gold clutch and large gold earrings.
The dress also had a slit that reached up to the actress’ thighs, so some leg action was evident as she walked up the red carpet. Her feet were encased in simple, metallic high heels.

The gala’s theme this year was China: Through the Looking Glass and it explores the way Chinese aesthetics have been interpreted in the West.
Rich Chinese costumes and decorative arts are displayed beside the work of designers like John Galliano, Ralph Lauren, Jean Paul Gaultier and others who have been inspired by the Oriental country.

The event, which is chaired by Vogue’s Anna Wintour, was also different this year in more ways than one.
Aside from the exhibit being three times bigger than the previous years, there have been reports that a social media ban was also put in place.
