Glamour's 2009 Fashion Week, two of the most wearable trends that
emerged were the one-shoulder dress and the edgy little black dress (LBD).
The times are changing, and the LBD is changing with them. Designers
looked toward the future with seriously severe shapes, sleek cutouts
and body-hugging silhouettes that brought these black dresses a very
next-century feel. The one-shoulder dress is full of drama and
asymmetry that make it instantly intriguing and draws attention to
the shoulder and the face.
Hathaway recently donned a Sophia Kokosalaki mini-dress that embodied
the edgy little black dress and one-shoulder dress all in one.

The property includes a 400 yard driveway ending in a circular drive, swimming pool and pool house, caretaker's cottage, detached barn and garage and a private pond.
