Chopping off her hair for her role in Les Misérables left Anne Hathaway “inconsolable”, but bleaching it blonde for the Met Gala? Well, she seems pretty happy to us.

“I don’t know if you can tell by looking at me but Debbie Harry was kind of an inspiration,” Hathaway told model Hilary Rhoda on the red carpet.

The actress debuted her shocking new hair color Monday night (which we’re absolutely loving by the way), when she arrived with Valentino wearing a sexy black gown from the designer’s 1992 archives.

You might remember that Hathaway caused a bit of a fashion scandal at this year’s Oscars when she switched from Valentino to Prada at the last minute.

“Though I love the dress I did wear, it was a difficult last minute decision as I had so looked forward to wearing Valentino in honor of the deep and meaningful relationship I have enjoyed with the house and with Valentino himself,” Hathaway told PEOPLE at the time.

We’re thrilled the duo (air) kissed and made up!
