Anne Hathaway in Miami

Posted on May 14, 2012

Oh, Annie. We know how it is. You’re a busy girl, dashing about all over the world, shooting movies and promoting them, and sometimes the little details get lost along the way.

Anne Hathaway at Miami International Airport.

Little details like pants.

We are about to be pilloried for this, but if that shirt was just a little bit longer, this could almost pass for chic. No, really. In that “movie star dashing through an airport” kinda way. Although the bags look decidedly unimpressive. We’d have to work on that, dear. We’re pretty sure you can wrangle some free luggage so long as you make sure the labels always face the paparazzi.

What does everyone think of her Fantine hair?

    Now THAT’S commitment.

    Edited to add – Young starlets out there angling to play Johanna in The Hunger Games sequels? THIS is the level of commitment required.

  • I think once her hair gets a little longer, she might look great. A little too short at the moment. And yes. Pants should be a requirement for putting your butt on airline seats.

    • Exactly.Maybe more like Michelle Williams or Carrie Mulligan? Right now her hair’s even shorter than Twiggy’s was. 

      Hope she doesn’t get her period.That can be inconvenient,when you’re in white and no pants. 

    •  She’s looking a bit like a young Dianne Wiest here. Not that that’s a bad thing, necessarily.

      • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

        I think she looks just like Dianne Wiest – which isn’t a good thing!  🙂

  • She’s gunning for an Oscar IMO.

  • quick someone call Miranda Priestly!! 

  • hughman

    I hope she enjoys her new life in the Peace Corps. 

  • lamamu

    Longer shirtdress with a nice wide belt or skinny, but definitely belted. And I think she picked up those ballet flats from an Amy Winehouse estate sale. (RIP, Amy) The hair will be fab in an inch or two.

    • 3boysful

       You nailed it!

  • sagecreek

    What, no entourage?

    ( I like AH, but was shocked to see her wrangling her own bag.)

  • schadenfreudelicious

    the look smacks a little too much of “i’ve just come from my annual check-up”….

    • girliecue

      As Monk once said, “LOL! Out loud!”

      • FlamingJune1967

        I do miss my Monk 🙁

  • Anathema_Device

    Whoa. I didn’t know she cut her hair off. I think the sunglasses are too big for her face. They almost look like those joke ones you can win at the carnival. As for the clothes, sure the dress could work if it were a few inches longer, but she really shouldn’t be traveling in anything that wrinkles that easily.

  • Maluca

    The hair does not suit her. Maybe if it was a little longer? She looks happy thought. That’s what counts!

    • Terence Ng

      It was for a role.

  • VicksieDo

    all that lovely hair, gone  🙁

    • TheOriginalLulu

      It’s just hair. It will grow back. I think she looks cute. 🙂

  • Trisha26

    She looks like she escaped from rehab. Hope the role is worth this.

  • AmandaCathleen

    I don’t know. The hair suits her, and yet is aging (and therefore doesn’t really suit her) if that makes sense.

    Nay on the sleep shirt. It’s WAY too baggy & flowy to be that short and worn as a dress.

    • SRQkitten

      Sleep shirt? That works although I was thinking it looked like she came straight from the beach in her beach cover up.

      Either way, not a good look, particularly for flying.


  • StellaZafella

    1 parts Audrey Hepburn, 2 parts Mia Farrow… a smidge of Katherine Hepburn from Member of the Wedding.
    I’m betting she makes a great Fantine. This look coupled with elements of her White Queen performance would make an interesting Charlotte Corday in Marat Sade.
    I like the look here…she looks like a normal person coming from somewhere going to somewhere…and the papzi just caught her en route.

    • luciaphile

      Anytime it looks like you forgot your pants is a bad thing (famous person or oh those horrible photos you see on People of Wal*Mart). But yes, otherwise she looks like a regular ordinary person and that’s a good thing. 

  • TSkot

    I don’t understand the criticism.  She looks great.

  • AWS

    It’s like she effed her chemo doc to catch a plane…

  • KaileeM

    I WANT to like the hair, but I’m just not sure about it. I usually think you need more delicate features to pull off a really short pixie. But, I think when it gets just a teensy bit longer, it will look great!

  • kimmeister

    The first shot of the Fantine hair made me think, “Jamie Lee Curtis is having a midlife crisis.”

  • it’s so strange to me that a pixie cut works so well on her, but looks…not as good on ginnifer.  

    • Spicytomato1

      I completely agree. I mentioned in an earlier post that I’m not a fan of Ginnifer’s short ‘do, but Anne’s works for me.

  • Lina_bee

    Hair: cute! Her long hair was boring.
    Outfit: ridic. Bet she flashed all of first class.

  • Oh, honey no. I hope you get your Oscar, but… no.

  • Lilithcat

    Love the haircut!  

  • Judy_J

    Leggings would have worked great with that shirt.  Bare legs = forgot my pants.  And her hair does look like it’s been chopped off…literally.  Like they chopped off Audrey Hepburn’s hair in “The Nun’s Story”.  No style at all.

  • TieDye64

    I love me some short, edgy hair on the right girl (wish I was one) and I’m thinking she could rock this if it was a tad longer and had more of an actual “style” to it. Judging from these photos alone it looks sort of like she had it buzzed by a friend at her kitchen table. 
    The outfit is ridiculous.

  • nannypoo

    The hair is bad enough, but those shoes!

  • Jenna Kuhmann

    Hate hate hate her hair.  Seriously.  I can’t believe she did that. Kudos to her as an actress; shame on her as a beautiful woman.

    But this does remind me I need to plan my airport outfit for next week.

    • whitrome

      Shame on her? I don’t know if I would go that far. Her hair will grow back, and she doesn’t owe it to womanhood to keep her hair long just because it’s pretty!

  • Leslie Streeter

    Put on some damn pants, girl. 

  • turtleemily

    She’s on my Irrational Hate list, so I’ll just go with the advice from Thumper’s mother. 😉

  • Sue_Asponte

    If she puts on that jeans jacket she’s holding, the shirt will hitch up and… yikes.

  • MzzPants

    I think she looks cute for a travel day.  Hair grows back, so why not mess with it?  It’s not like she can’t afford the best wigs out there, if she wanted to.  And an Oscar, if she pulls it off, would be worth the haircut.

  • Jess_face

    In the last shot, she looks like a harried Audrey Tautou.

  • MK03

    Yeah, yeah, I know Fantine sells her hair and it was probably cut off none too nicely, but that is one awful cut. Which I guess is what they were going for. Still, I’ll be glad once it’s grown back in.

  • erinbinek

    This dress really puts the PAP in paparazzi.

  • penn collins

    um…(to be kind, as we know we ALL are…right kids?) perhaps she had an ‘accident’ on the way over…perhaps some very spicy (oh wait, with *that* body I am forgetting she does not eat as we humans do..maybe the nice man at the bar spilled his “milk shake” all over her now missing slacks and they were ruined?  or are being Martinized as we speak?
    it could be worse, she could be wearing sweat pants…

  • Its very incognito, in a “I’ve just been released from a ward somewhere (and this is what I was wearing when I was admitted)” kind of way.

  • I admire her for changing her hair which is a rather large asset of hers. Not that she doesn’t have a lot of assets to spare but still, it’s a good move. She doesn’t want to end up like Jen Anniston who appears to be unwilling to change her hair cut or style for any part anywhere (and I assume Anne’s change was part-driven). I also think her dress is too short and frankly, can’t stand for my legs to touch airplane seats. Ew. Maybe she sat on her scarf which appears to have the dimensions of a queen size duvet.

    • Call me Bee

      I posted my thoughts before reading yours–ITA about Ms Anniston.  Change is good, change is good…

  • TheOriginalLulu

    I agree, this would have to be longer to be ok. This is clearly a shirt, not a dress.

  • ballerinawithagun

    Did she cut her own hair??? When she was 4????

    • MilaXX

      Click the link. She’s playing Fantine in Le Miz

  • joe_tey83

    When did she cut her hair?!

    And, it’s…… post chemo hair.

  • MilaXX

    I actually like this. It’s very real world non celeb looking.

  • Ali

    I get why she cut her hair (wow, commitment to a role!) but the first time I saw this I was like “nooooooooooo” – between her and Cathy Cambridge, I have serious long hair envy.

  • Susan Crawford

    I understand that she has dieted strenuously for the Fantine part, and I hope she really nails it so she can start eating again and letting her hair grow. As running through an airport looks go, I have definitely seen far worse, and at least she looks happy.

    I love her ethnic shoulderbag and ballet flats – girrl looks ready for a comfy flight, and I note she’s got a big, fat book with her. Happy reading Annie!

  • The scarf and short shirt-dress/no pants combo is what is really confusing me. It’s like the opposite of Uggs with a tank-top.

  • lojoso

    That shirt is probably longer than at least 80% of her dresses.

  • marilyn

    Let’s see-she is in her nightshirt with a scarf thrown around her neck to fake everybody out.  She did not comb her hair either.  Sunglasses, cute shoes, purse and a scarf do not fix this.  Her hair would look hideous if it were combed.  Boy is she going from one extreme to the other:  Flowing tresses to a hacked off bad haircut in a bad color.  Yikes.  By the way, the color of the nightshirt does nothing for her.  I want to be charitable and say she overslept and really did not have time to get dressed.

  • giiiirrrr

    Short hair on beautiful women can be *so* hot, but not the pixie.  It’s too little girl-y.

  • I think Anne just needs to smile all the time. That second picture – her smile changes her whole face, makes everything she’s wearing look prettier. I think I’m the only one but I LOVE the hair.

  • CassandraMortmain

    She’s in a hospital gown heading off to her chemo treatment.  Plus, you need to cover your legs when you’re on a plane.  I don’t want to be brushing up against my seatmate’s bare legs, even if those bare legs belong to the divine Miss Hathaway.  Plus, it’s usually chilly on planes.  Total fail.

  • Rebecca Jay

    What’s with the 3D movie glasses?

  • samo_samo

    Her hair is really cute. If she had added leggings, she would have had a super cute travel day look.

  • Pants_are_a_must

    This is a bad cut for her. She could definitely rock short hair, but a bit longer than this.

  • alyce1213

    I know she had to lose weight Les Miserables, in addition to chopping her hair, because she’s supposed to look poor and hungry. 
    She looks very hungry — too drawn and skinny.

  • Lola67

    Love the hair, would like to see a pic with the glasses off though. I am not a fan of this pantless look, see it all over campus. Not good.

  • I don’t care for the hair, but it’s for a role and I really admire her commitment. Not enought to excuse the lack of pants, but still.

  • I feel like there’s nothing particularly wrong with this outfit except that overall she seems a little crazed. Maybe it’s the all white outfit and super short hair (which I think looks cute on its own) that makes her look like a mental patient. But maybe the airport should be a gossip-free zone?? At least she’s comfortable. 

  • Call me Bee

    She would have looked perfect with a little capri legging under that shirt.  I love her hair.  She has a classically beautiful face, so she can wear anything.  Good for her for not being tied to all that hair (are you listening, Jennifer A?) 

  • I think she looks horrid. I know she’s thin for a role but, as soon as she is done, she needs some pizza and ice cream.

  • Love the hair.  The shirt dress looks fine.   People wear cocktail dresses much shorter than that all the time and nobody bats and eye.

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    OMG she looks like an escaped mental patient.  Why oh Why did she cut her beautiful hair?  This is a picture of her at age 50.  She looks terrible.  And I’m one of the few who really really like her.  So sad.   

  • The lady next to her in the second pic looks like an older Cathy Cambridge.

    • Qitkat

       You are kidding, right?

  • LambeeBaby

    Her hair looks cool. Very Mia Farrow

  • glennethph

    She’s Fantine?!  I haven’t gotten over the fact that she’s Catwoman yet.

    • I saw the preview yesterday when I went to see The Avengers. I think she looks like she’s going to be really good in it, honestly. I do really like her though so maybe I’m biased 🙂 

  • Adriana_Paula

    I like the unimpressive bags.  It’s disheartening to think celebrities want us to see them as walking billboards all the time, rather than just people getting from Point A to Point B (though I know it was said tongue in cheek, gentlemen).

    • PaulaBerman

       I feel the same way. I imagine those are the bags she’s had forever, they work, so she kept them. It’s the only thing I really like about these pix.

      • Adriana_Paula

        When I think about how much I love and use certain bags, jackets, shoes etc., it makes me feel like celebrities are from another planet.  Free stuff is nice and all, but don’t they get FOND of certain pieces and want them as part of their daily lives?

    • Thank you for that. I was about to make the exact same comment. She’s traveling — she’s not making a statement, she’s getting shit done. 🙂

      (And I don’t think my other point warrants a full comment all its own — I wish people would stop making chemo-related comments about her hair. That’s in horrible taste.)

      • Adriana_Paula

        I am really glad you said that second comment.  Thank you.

  • nancymae

    I haven’t seen one of those basket bags since I “lost” mine back in the late ’80s. Wow.

  • LilyPad

    This is me at the airport, so I am gonna give the girl a pass. She looks comfortable and I don’t care what Victoria Beckham seems to think, but that is the way to go when travelling.
    Hair’s too short.

  • ccm800

    well I hate that hair –  but as for the shirt dress – she looks fine esp for Miami landing.

  • DesertDweller79

    I don’t understand why Fantine would have a pixie cut. Nor why anyone would get on an airplane without pants.

  • With that face, she can go bald and still look gorgeous.

  • Verascity

    I am so used to this look now, living in Japan, that it honestly took me a minute to figure out what was “missing.” 

  • RzYoung

    I think the hair looks a bit ropey at the moment but in 2 or 3 weeks it’ll look really cute. Not sure it is the best haircut for her but as a necessity it works for now.

  • Joey Melliza

    it doesn’t help that she looks to be carrying her jeans in her arms

  • siriuslover

    I don’t like her hair. I don’t think it works well on her. But it could just be the fact that she’s running through the airport.

  • bellafigura1

    Well, I love it!  The whole darn thing, including the straw bag and the stupid wheelie. 

  • Corsetmaker

    Next time guys, maybe you should put ‘it’s for a role!’ in 72pt helvetica black across the post. Because a lot of people seem to be missing that :/

    It ages her a bit, as does the weight loss, but it doesn’t really count when it’s for a part and it’ll soon change and grow. But yes, she could do with trousers or leggings or something. Apart from anything else she’s going to freeze when the air conditioning hits. Which presumably is the reason for the scarf which makes the lack of leg covering even more peculiar.

  • Love the hair.  She can pull it off.

  • Is she Cynthia Nixon’s understudy for that Broadway play about cancer? And whoever said she has awesome pegs? 

  • lordandtaylor

    Oh honey, work on your legs at the gym. I think her outfit looks like a sleep shirt…or a hospital gown. What do I see? See is going to put a denim jacket over that mess?

    Hate the hair.

  • That outfit looks like a walk of shame outfit, for sure. I like the short hair, but it looks so choppy, like, she did it herself.  

  • Did she get that bag at Whole Foods?

  • guest2visits

    I hope they start making more sunglasses that aren’t so precociously over large. Like as if to make the wearer more child-like?
    And of course every celeb (or celeb stylist) picks them up. I think it looks idiotic.  Also looks like she’s wearing burlap in a nice
    shade of oatmeal.  Even the flats are unattractive.  I don’t have any problem with the short hair (I think it was for a role); but
    one size does not fit all. Wish these hair stylists would make some cuts that are more unique to the individual head they’re
    working on.

  • lilazander

    She has the perfect face for short hair; it’s an interesting change–i’m liking it.

  • Qitkat

    She has the right shape of head and face to carry off that pixie cut, but I’ll bet that she is still startled by the change everytime she looks into a mirror. It’s quite drastic to go from long luscious locks to this.

    But not even movie stars can get away with just wearing a long men’s shirt and pretending it is a dress. That’s a nightgown honey.

  • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

    I like the hair.  The outfit, not so much.

  • jessicasac

    The hair is almost cute.

  • mozzer0906

    She looks terrible.  The short hair does not suit her face at all, it makes her look like she has an eating disorder.  She needs long, lush hair.  She also looks like she rolled out of some dudes bed and threw on his shirt on the way to the airport.

  • I had that same bag in college!  

    In the 80s.   Kenya bags, oh how I miss your spaciousness.
