We predicted Keira Knightley
or Anne Hathaway
would be the first to get their hands on Valentino
's whimsical dandelion gown, but instead it was the steamy Amber Heard
. We love red carpet curve balls.
For the Art of Elysium's Heaven Gala, Amber looked extraordinary in the delicate silk design—a drastic departure from her usual figure-hugging taffeta
and backless sparkle
. The lace bodice and dainty collar were charmingly school girl while the sheer long sleeves and floor-sweeping length were pure elegance.
The new brunette styled her hair in a modernized bouffant to keep up her signature Old Hollywood vibe. Fuchsia lips and a glowing complexion offered the only color she needed. She was, well, appropriately heavenly for the occasion.
