On her way into the Late Show With David Letterman in NYC, Anne Hathaway waved to fans in a black fringe dress by Stella McCartney. She kept the rest of her look monochrome by pairing her dramatic dress with simple black patent pumps and exaggerated cat-eye sunglasses. Fringe dresses are not a new trend, and you might already have one in your closet, but Anne showcased a modern way to wear them by not trying to take it back to the '20s. They're a foolproof party dress, so the next time you throw one on, remember Anne by keeping the rest of your look simple. It'll allow the fringe to put its best foot forward.
