Once upon a time, my freshman year roommate dragged me to Nocturnal Wonderland, a Southern California rave (of sorts). Now, aside from the night ending with her car getting broken into because she left it in San Bernadino after the keys fell out of her “very secure” underwear pouch, the thing that sticks out most to me is how much I stuck out. I wore pants, a t-shirt, sneakers and a low bun. For comparison, again, my roommate wore something with so little cloth, she had to keep her keys in her underwear. This weekend, Anne Hathaway was freshman year Sam.
Hathaway went to a party with husband Adam Shulman that hosted Deadmau5 as DJ. At the Spark Some Fun Miami event, she dressed up looking like an adorkable weirdo complete with a flowing floor-length dress and some glowsticks…on her head.
I feel like this is exactly what Zooey Deschanel would wear to see any form of electro, though I imagine she’d go heavier on the glowing hair accessories.
She and Shulman threw around a glowing orb-thing, with the latter looking equally adorable and out of place at a dance party in a fancy v-neck sweater with a collared undershirt and khakis. They are everyone’s favorite college couple who calls going to parties “letting loose.”
Now, I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with being out of place. If you’ve ever been to a candy kid-heavy show full of people who walk up to you, do the arm-spinning “are you rolling??” motion, and then obnoxiously stab glowsticks at you regardless of your answer–surely, you can appreciate a person just being semi-privately full of glee. And I’m a fan of Mrs. Hathaway, so I now kind of wish I could go on double dates with her and Shulman. We could throw balls! We could be wear gowns while hiking! We could practice smiling like we won awards!
Oh, and Deadmau5 appeared without his iconic mouse helmet. While this is not nearly as rare as, say, Daft Punk doing so, it’s still worth noting primarily because it reaffirms my theory that he looks just like Dizzy from The New Guy.
