Girl, That’s Not Your Dress: Anne Hathaway

Posted on July 19, 2012

Annie, we love ya, but you’ve got to stop it with this Michelle Williams thing you’re doing. A pixie cut does not necessarily a twee princess make, dear.

 

Anne Hathaway attends London premiere of ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ at Odeon Leicester Square in a Gucci gown paired with Tiffany & Co. jewelry and Casadei pumps.

Gucci Resort 2013 Collection/Model: Nadja Bender

A Hallmark store threw up on her neck. We can smell the potpourri from here.

And with THAT little joke out of the way, let us talk more about the ways in which Anne Hathaway is not Michelle Williams. Michelle has tiny facial features; Annie does not. Michelle is pale and ethereal; Annie is not. Michelle, despite her humble beginnings on a cable network, is something of an indie film princess; Annie is pure Hollywood all the way.

What we’re trying to say is, Girl, That is NOT Your Look.

So the haircut was for your role in Les Miz. Okay, fine. It doesn’t suit you, but it’s far from a disaster. The thing is, because of things ranging from bone structure to personality to career trajectory, it’s a poor idea to go the waifish, twee route. This was really an opportunity to go full-on Liza. Big earrings and dramatic makeup. Jewelry and sequins. Tight dresses to throw the slamming lady bod into sharp relief against the little boy haircut. Shoes that look like weapons. That’s the way to go here. You’re CATWOMAN, for God’s sake. Would Julie Newmar or Michelle Pfeiffer try to look like dimestore Mia Farrows? Of course not.

This wood nymph shit just isn’t for you, sweetie.

      Abso-freakin-lutely. 

    • Introspective

      honey no. talk about a shapeless rag with some fugly frou frou shit on top.

      Annie–stick to mod honey. its the best way to make that cut pop. let this other shit youve been trying go.

    • GillianHolroyd

      I think *Leslie Caron* should be her default look.

      • Sobaika

        Oooooh yes, that would be a very good default for her.

    • Sobaika

      EW. The embellishments on the neckline are cheap and tacky.

    • Tall and Salty

      Not a fan of the dress, but I think her head looks amazing.

    • http://www.facebook.com/fiddlecub Kevin VanOrd

      I think my mom has that neck embellishment. Except it’s circling the base of a large scented candle.

      • Introspective

        my mom has the same candle!!! she pulls it out annually the week before Christmas to adorn her already over-decorated table. I CANT with Gucci thinking they pulled off that tchotchke of a neckline…

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          Does anyone else remember the faux plastic candle wreathes that encircled countless pillar candles in suburban homes in the 70′s and early 80′s?  That is exactly what I see when I look at the neckline of this sad sack of a dress. Gucci should have its hands smacked.

          • Lori

            Remember them? I still see them every time a visit my mom. I love her to death, but she’s getting on in years she stopped moving forward style-wise quite some time ago.

            • bitchybitchybitchy

              I think the only reason I didn’t get my mom’s inventory of those rings is because my sister-in-law cleared out the house after mom’s death, and SIL does not have the pack rat gene.

          • formerlyAnon

             OF COURSE we remember (if we’re old enough.)

            Even my mom, who eschewed most knicky-knacky things and believed candles were for burning, made one of plastic holly & pointsettias at Christmas for the kitchen table.

      • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

         TOT-ally.  My mom had a number of those things for different seasons and holidays, plus a literal army of pillar candles in different colors that never, EVER got lit.

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          OMG, yes.  Mom had the full seasonal array, and no, those candles were never lit. 

          • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

            After my parents had passed away, my sister and I were going through the house, clearing things away. We found this cardboard box and when we opened it, there they ALL were. We could not stop laughing.  There may still be pics somewhere in the piles of actual photographs, of the two of us wearing various ones on our heads, arms, ankles,….

            • bitchybitchybitchy

              And how were you to know that Gucci would take inspiration from those photographs????

            • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

              And who knew my mother would be playing muse, albeit posthumously?

            • bitchybitchybitchy

              This has just inspired me to add this to my personal list of fantasy challenges for future PR seasons:
              incorporate into your design a faux plastic or silk flower centerpiece-with the stipulation that the centerpiece must not be used as a collar.

            • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

              I like this idea. Of course, they will have no choice which centerpiece to work with. And I smell a team challenge!

            • bitchybitchybitchy

               Oh, a team challenge for sure-we’ve got to maximize the dramatic possibilities!

            • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

              Then we have get our dear little Quentin W. Sweetcrackers teamed with whoever the biggest bitch on set is.

            • Celandine1

              I smell trashy flower bikini top from at least one panicky designer!

          • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZBFH32YG44LIIZYLSQPMBXMYCU Sarah

            My mom, too, but she used the candles. So all of her plastic wreaths were also waxy. I remember being a “helper” and making the very serious decision of WHICH holiday-themed candle wreaths to choose – the blue & white with glitter? Poinsettias?? Holly with tiny wrapped gifts?!? (Because of course the plastic candle wreath sets the tone for the whole table, and only the BEST helper knows which to choose.) AAAh, another time when I realize in retrospect that Mom was making me feel important because she loved me.

      • AudreysMom

         perfect analogy. My mom did too, only she made it herself from a class she took at Michaels.

        • Call me Bee

          Ahahaha…me too!  Except I used “faux silk” flowers–never plastic.  –g–

      • muzan-e

        A much longer version, with tiny golden LEDs, is our very favourite Christmas garland ever.  By daylight it’s a little tacky. But at night, the tiny lights leave it all sparkly and gold-dusted and strangely ethereal.  It was my very first for-the-home purchase from my very first self-started business, and it’s infinitely better as a garland than a dress.  

        Sorry, Anne.

    • RebeccaKW

      I agree.  I really don’t like this cut on her, but she has some style, she can rock something with a harder edge.  She should spike that hair.  Follow Halle Berry’s lead-let your bod shine.

      This dress is hideous.  

      ETA: I just noticed the shoes! Total mother of the bride.

      • filmcricket

        Precisely. I can get how Halle Berry is somone whose act one follows with great trepidation – who wants to be compared to her? – but that’s the best thing she could do with this cut – get some texture in there and glam it up. A small, well-coiffed head can be so elegant, it doesn’t have to signal “consumptive” until it’s long enough to put extensions in.

      • Little_Olive

        She should totally spike that hair! I cannot with pixies anymore. Rosemary can only have so many babies.  

        I ask, is Rachel Zoe still behind all this? Did Rachel’s the change in hairstyle strip her off her powers? 

        • makeityourself

          That’s my questions too.  Isn’t it the role of the stylist to completely develop and then project — through the selection of hair, makeup, apparel and accessories — the client’s “style,” whatever the stylist deems that to be?  If it’s still Rachel Zoe, then Rachel needs to go.  She hit her high point with Annie at last year’s Oscars, and perhaps now with her new baby she’s bored or has lost her way.

          If it isn’t Rachel Zoe anymore, then Annie needs to hire her back.  

          • Glammie

            My question as well. Has RZ been too busy with her own line to style these days?  This dress is just so wrong–it’s a damn sack–total waste of Hathaway’s woman-sized figure.  Yeah, I know she’s lost wait, but that alone doesn’t make you a waif.

    • http://twitter.com/Nancer Nancer

      I hate to say it, since I am in the minority here, but the neckline of that  dress has potential. If you could find something that lovely at a dimestore, please – show me where so I can get some of that action! Of course, the dress has other issues, and definitely doesn’t suit Miss H.

      • MattCooper27

        I agree. And as for her hair, she has the classic gamine look which suits her eyes and smile.

    • teensmom99

      While I agree with you re how great a liza-look would be, I actually thinks she looks FANTASTIC here.  It’s an IN for me (even if you forgot to ask).

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_64HSRZWCSJ5RBFGCWDLFQOICYM G

      Agree totally.  She has very large features, and longer hair suits her much better.  The open sides on this dress do not a vamp make.  This is a sad look.  I’ll never forget some of the wonderful looks she had at the Oscars a couple years back.  

    • formerlyAnon

      Y’all crack me up. Yet again.

      For Ms. Hathaway, I was going to say: *structure*!!! Your gowns need *structure*!!!!  Or, at least, a SHAPE.

      I kinda like her hair, even while I admit it’s not the most flattering for her, but I think that’s just because I like the bones in people’s faces.

      But for god sakes, if you’re going to deploy a door wreath with a shapeless gown that makes you look larger than you are, even *I* could tell you to slap it on your HEAD when you have a teeny tiny haircut!

      It was nice of my dead Italian grandmother to lend Anne her entire broach collection.

      • Maddie_Faddenoid

        That made me laugh a lot. Thanks!

    • Le_Sigh

      Amen.  Even Hilary Swank did it better than this when she re-emerged from Boys Don’t Cry.  

      • charlotte

         Although that was a much harder task. Anne doesn’t have to prove to us that she is a woman…

    • http://twitter.com/taijuuuh Taija Hurri

      I feel bad but I sort of like the embellishments. Granted, not on here. And not on the burlap looking recolour of the dress either… But, they’re definitely not the worst part here.

    • http://twitter.com/TheRedZavodnik Ginger

      She looks like a Renn-faire reject. =(

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_B3CIEK7XAS3YKAAKFJFMIIKC4I Nacogdoches

        That’s probably why I love the dress…it’s my inner tacky Renn-fair fairy. But it’s wrong for Catwoman.

      • ballerinawithagun

        Yes, very Etsy looking.

    • Judy_J

      She should emulate Audrey Hepburn…that woman knew how to rock the short haircut.  The neck embellisment on that shapeless dress is pure Hobby Lobby.  And those armholes that open to the waist…guess lots of body tape is required to keep from having a wardrobe malfunction.

    • DominoEstella

      If I were Catwoman I would definitely go for something edgy and dark, otherwise I like this dress.  I don’t think this silhouette suit her body.

    • HM3

      THANK YOU. I couldn’t agree more. I’m not crazy about this hairstyle, but from the day I saw it, I’ve wanted her to style it properly.

    • nannypoo

      I sort of like this goofy dress.

    • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

      Couldn’t agree more. I’d hate the dress on Michelle Williams, too. 

    • twocee

      A-freakin-men

    • AudreysMom

      agree that this looks awful. But is it part of the definition of ‘twee’ to have side seam splits down to the hips that requires major side boob tape?

      aside from that… ‘dimestore Mia Farrow.’ love it. My phrase for the day.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      “You’re CATWOMAN, for God’s sake”. Thank you! Yes, indeed, that alone is reason to pull out the stops and to have worn a look that would have shut down the red carpet.  Instead, this Bitter Kitten has another sad over Anne’s look.  For all of the reasons that TLo cited, this is not working.

      • MoHub

         Let’s face it. She’s not Julie Newmar—and neither are Pfeiffer and Berry. Only Eartha Kitt even came close.

        • bitchybitchybitchy

          Right you are.  I suspect that Julie Newmar will always be Catwoman for me, thought Eartha Kitt would be next in line.

    • Julie Fountain

      I’m not sure that’s anyone’s dress.

      • Introspective

        seriously.

      • AudreysMom

         mmmm maybe Latrice Royale?

        • call_me_schmeg

          yes!!! audreysmom strikes again! but, then again, latrice probably would have constructed it with items from an actual dime store…

          • AudreysMom

             and looked Divine :)

    • Call me Bee

      Gentlemen, I must disagree on a few points. 
      I think her pixie cut suits her very well.  She has a gorgeous face and can carry this cut quite well.  Her hair, along with perfect makeup and shoes, make this look for her.  I even like all the frippery on the neckline.  The dress is (sort of) interesting in that it’s stunning fabric and I love the low sides and back slit that’s not too high. 

      It is simply an unfortunate color.  So wished Miss Anne would have stuck with the coral–this whole look would have been stunning!    In a good way. 

    • susu11

      *Slow clap* thank you TLo! I hated this look when I saw it online yesterday. I also had the exact same thought as you guys did- You’re playing Catwoman for God’s Sake woman! Catwoman is one of the sexiest super villianesses/heroines in our popular culture’s imagination and Anne rolls up in this get-up?! I’m not saying she should have came in a BDSM rubber dress, but I already had a hard time swallowing the idea of ‘Disney Princess’ Anne as Catwoman, and this outfit just reinforces the idea that she’s too sweet/twee for her own good. I’m hoping her portrayal on screen proves me wrong (though no one will ever top Michelle Pfieffer in my book)

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        The movie critic for the Washington Post was very enthusiastic about Anne Hathaway as Catwoman.  She referred to Hathaway as the breakout performance in the film.  BTW-the movie critic also criticized Christopher Nolan for putting Tom Hardy as Bane in a mask that covers his delicious lips…

        • susu11

          Glad to hear Anne’s getting good reviews! Catwoman is one my favorite comic book characters so I’m happy if Anne does her justice. I have very mixed feelings about Anne’s acting ability. I hated her in Bride Wars and Havoc, and thought she was alright in The Devil Wears Prada and Brokeback Mountain (but her co-stars definitely outshone her in both those films) I haven’t seen Rachel getting Married so I might be underestimating her versatility.

          And while I concur that it’s a sin to cover up Hardy’s luscious lips, his Bane looks absolutely badass! haha

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            I liked Anne in Devil Wears Prada and Brokeback Mountain.  No one came out of Bridewars with any dignity.
            I think I’ll wait a week for the first weekend hysteria to wane and then check out Batman (and Tom Hardy)-being retired gives me more flexibiility for movie-going.

    • SewingSiren

      I suppose I will be in the extreme minority here. I think she looks fabulous.  There are a few details that annoy. For instance the lining should be the same color as the dress, and I think this type of unstructured gown would look far better with a jeweled thong sandal. The flowers look like delicate shells shaped into flowers to me, which is perfect for summer , I think.
      I agree that she would like great in a Liza/ Cabaret era look too.

    • http://twitter.com/MajorBedhead MajorBedhead

      That neckline is making my eyes bleed. The whole ensemble looks like what the Renn-faire queen would wear when she retired to her chamber for a late dinner with the Renn-faire king.

      Also? If I were getting Tiffany jewelry, I’d be getting something more than diamond studs. Jeesh.

    • Renee Bender

      Snaps up, TLo!  Couldn’t have said it better.

    • halleygee

      Why do you have to tailor all your looks to your hair, just because it’s short? I had this cut for years and my sister has it and we still dressed/dress according to our own particular style, not to our hair. You either have a look or you don’t, which I guess is what you guys are saying in the first place :)

    • Evan Hart

      She’s gorgeous, but she’s too boobalicious for this dress, IMO. It looks like her girls don’t have enough support, and it makes me sad for them. 

    • ChaCha_70

      I just love you guys. You bring a smile to my face and make me laugh everyday. Thank you TLo for always brightening my day.

    • Anathema_Device

      Yes, she needs to go sleek and tailored or body-conscious. I have short hair and strong features and would never, ever wear an exaggerated collar-detail like that. Statement jewelry further down on the chest, sure, but all that fussy business around the neck? Never!

    • PaulaBerman

      I am fascinated/horrified by the huge armholes. If you are wearing a shapeless column from ankle to chin you should not have to use boob tape.

      • kimmeister

        Absolutely, the armholes bug way more than the neck garland.  Also, the slit in the leg doesn’t seem long enough for her to take a decent-sized step.  I guess they used up their slit quota in the freakish armholes?

    • tereliz

      Oh, Mia Thermopolis, I still love you, but honey, that is not your dress. You need something with structure, shape, chicness and attitude. Just like your gorgeous self!

    • https://twitter.com/Gayer_Than_Thou Gayer Than Thou

      That is a seriously unflattering dress.

    • Squarah

      YES to full-on Liza. That would be such a great look for her.

    • jjfg

      Actually thought that WAS Michelle Williams with a hair dye job at first…   But seriously, this is catwoman?  I kind of think it’s illegal for catwoman to dress like she got lost on the way to a 70′s party.

    • msdamselfly

      I like it, especially from the side

    • another_laura

      “full-on Liza” – !  Spit out my coffee, you guys.

      The dress is just not good, and then you are so right, not for her.  The (lack of) color, the potpourri, the matching shoes.  yech.  Miss Anne, you’ve just got to move on from this, even if it means extensions so that you feel more yourself….

    • pookiesmom

      The dress looks no better on her than it does on the model. Which is to say: tragic.

    • sashaychante

      I SO agree that Anne should be going the Liza route with that snappy haircut.  Very few women can pull off waif when they are over 21, which isn’t a bad thing.  Though I’m not a fan of the short haircut, she could really play it up with a more dramatic modern look.

      This dress reminds me of a community theater production costume for Midsummer Night’s Dream.

    • http://twitter.com/rvshepherd Robin

      I totally agree with that second sentence. Anne should make that pixie cut into something super edgy and get as far away as she can from that twee dress!

    • Ryan Williamson

      Uh what? Michelle Williams looks a lot like Anne Hathaway. Michelle doesn’t have tiny features at all, her nose and lips are quite large like Anne’s and their skin’s the same color. The pixie look doesn’t suit Michelle either, so I’m not sure what point you’re trying to make. 

    • http://twitter.com/cornekopia Shawn EH

      I think she looks pretty and is enjoying her princess moment (again, isn’t that how she started?), but I’m much more excited about your Liz Taylor meets Audrey Hepburn hot brunette suggestion; red, white and black all over. Ava Gardner, kind of the natural born enemy of Mia Farrow!

    • http://twitter.com/theodinspire Theophilus Davenport

      Does anyone else think she looks like a more conventional version of Morena Baccarin here?

      Yuckety yuck yuck (from the neck down). 

    • AthenaJ

      In the pic where she’s just standing there, she looks like a column. I don’t think that’s the kind of ‘architectural’ designers aim for…

    • Violina23

      I think her hair/makeup look fine — quite good actually. It’s just the dress with NO shape that is just so… sad

    • VicksieDo

      Maybe she’s trying not to look like CatWoman with an ethereal dress like that.  The side slits at the top probably feel really sexy if she’s taped in properly.  I do agree about the tacky stuff around the neck though. Without that, and if this was a color, I’d like it much more.

    • spititout

      She is PREGNANT, people!  Factor that in.  When you are in early stages of body changes it takes a while to figure it out what is comfortable but not yet maternity, thus the strange outfits lately. 

      • http://twitter.com/DarthJaeda Jaeda Laurez

        wait, what? By who?

        And being pregnant is no excuse. We’ve seen fierce pregnant before. 

        • spititout

          fierce pregnant is later, right now she looks like trying to conceal it and too many body changes.

      • MilaXX

         Anne is preggers? haven’t heard that and if she is it’s still very early stages. Pregnancy is not an excuse for this dress.

        • spititout

          early stages, yes.  look at the stella mccartney dress, major bagging around hips and belly, still no excuse for the boob flaps and major fug. also the white goddess dress- peplum over belly, draping over thicker hips…check it out…!  wanna bet?

      • alyce1213

        Why early stages of a possible pregnancy merits capital letter “PREGNANT” I don’t know.  If she is, which you don’t know for sure, you can’t tell and it doesn’t excuse this dress. It’s just bad taste, bad choice — nothing to do with early stages of a maybe pregnancy.

    • TSkot

      That ain’t anybodies dress.

    • MilaXX

      No this shapeless column is not for Anne. No sure who could work this dress. Cut it knee length and it might work on Michelle, but as is no bueno.

      Someone get Anne Hathaway’s phone number, because she needs to read this before the The Dark Knight Rises global poledance is over. So glad someone finally said that the haircut isn’t working for her (out loud and in public). Black and form-fitting would be doing her many more favors that this thing. Box it up and ship it to Mia Wasikowska, Annie.

    • http://twitter.com/stellaphone Stella Zawistowski

      I guess maybe she’s working the “Anne Hathaway was Shakespeare’s wife, therefore I will go Midsummer Night’s Dream on my neck” angle?

    • marilyn

      How right you are!  The other actress who needs that rant, no, that speech, is Gennifer Goodwin.  She also needs to learn how to smile and look like she’s happy.

      By the way, the dress looks better at the top on her than on the runway model, because she has no hair hanging down on the shoulders, so we can see the fairy/pixie wreath. However, the color does not do anything for her. The coral color of the runway dress would have been better with her coloring.

      This is exactly how I imagine the Vestal Virgins of ancient Rome dressed (minus the heels and eyeliner, of course). Perfectly suited for a woman whose life is dedicated to tending the sacred temple hearth fires of a goddess.

      she looks like a variation on the Ghost of Christmas Present.

    • guest2visits

      O Tlo; couldn’t disagree more about the hair. I think she’s looks better in the tiny pixie cut than Michelle. MW’s cut is very
      irritating to me, the way it’s cut anyway. I think MW looks so much better with long blonde locks.
      Anne is also stunning in her usual long chestnut mane; but I think she looks surprisingly good in the waif cut.
      The dress is too much of an endless, shapeless, pasty green shade that doesn’t flatter her. The design makes her and the model
       look like a 20 foot tall sci-fi vixen/creature. There could be 6 other legs under that star trek fabric.

      Actually, if it was in some kind of color, I think it’d look TONS better.

    • elirt

      TLO, you nailed it as always.

    • poggi

      I don’t understand why she feels like she has to resort to this.  The hair could look modern and sexy–not juvenile and waifish.   You guys are right.  Shiny and sleek hair, bold lips, and a sleek sexy dress would be the way to go.

      I like it.  She looks good and the dress is gorgeous.  You seem to lump everything into this “twee” category when that’s just a cop-out.  The dress could have been a bit more fitted and the makeup could have been a little more defined but I love the look on her.  

    • CarolinLA

      What is Rachel Zoe doing with her??????!!!!!!  Did Anne get engaged and was so blinded by the ring that she can’t look in the mirror????!!

    • ThaliaMenninger

      I said she should do Viola, not Mustardseed.

    • sweetestsith

      I think the closeup is kind of adorable (though the colors are awful on her), but the full length look is not flattering. She looks droopy and sad, and that is not the way to pole dance for cat woman! 

    • NICHOLAS PASQUALE

      I really don’t think she looks bad, athough a red shoe would’ve done wonders here. I also think she has a gorgeous face and pulls off the hair quite well, but I agree that this doesn’t really seem to be HER style. It’s a style that I think, for the most part, she pulls off at least fairly well, but it ain’t her.

    • alwaysanswerc

      You know, I thought she looked good, until I read this:

      “This was really an opportunity to go full-on Liza. Big earrings and
      dramatic makeup. Jewelry and sequins. Tight dresses to throw the
      slamming lady bod into sharp relief against the little boy haircut.
      Shoes that look like weapons. That’s the way to go here. You’re
      CATWOMAN, for God’s sake. Would Julie Newmar or Michelle Pfeiffer try to
      look like dimestore Mia Farrows? Of course not.”

      Spot on.

      I can take or leave the dress, but she is about 200% percent hotter with this hair cut than she was with long hair.

    • SophieCollier

      Well, I get your point(s) but I still think she looks really good here.

      Them shoes. Gurl. BYE.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PCARAOJSL553GBBPQSLRYD5REE L.

      none of that bothers me as much as the bridesmaid shoes.

    • http://twitter.com/HeckYeahHeckNo KC

      I’m sorry. I hate her hair. She’s gorgeous and her face an *handle* it, but I think she doesn’t even look like the same person. The haircut makes her look a bit gangly, IMO. And I agree that her response when it comes to fashion just…does not do anything to highlight her assets. With this haircut I agree that she needs more than this.

    • PeaceBang

      What a brilliant post. You absolutely nailed it. Also, the dress was bad enough and then the shoes went and hurt my feelings.

    • http://profiles.google.com/sauchih Sau-Chih Feng

      Those shoes look like Ballroom dancing shoes. Really. The flesh-toned satin. DO NOT LIKE.

    • nicole seligman

      send that dress to lana del rey. she’ll…do something with it.

    • EEKstl

      I agree she’s going the wrong direction with this cut but I have to say I love the dress down to the knees.  If it had been short it would have been a winner.  It doesn’t work on her as a gown.

    • SorayaS

      PREACH! I have had hair that short and it is verrrry tempting to dress all frilly and sweet to look as feminine as possible but seriously, you can rock some stylish edgy looks with short hair. She gives the impression with her styling that she is freaking the fuck out about her hair. Own it!

    • LambeeBaby

      I prefer her dress to the one on the model. The models dress is too wide around the neckline. But I agree, it is not her dress. It is very wood nymph.

    • sagecreek

      Nah, anyone who’s ever been to a Ren Faire knows that you do chain mail or the floral head-dressy thing, but never both.

    • kolokOlchik

      but her makeup looks very pretty!

    • http://phantomminuet.blogspot.com/ MinAgain

      If Anne had worn the coral, it would have been more more interesting.  That neutral color doesn’t do much for her.  And one thing’s for sure…you can only wear a dress like that with short hair or an up-do.  The neckline looks terrible on the model.

    • Susan Crawford

      With her short hair, Annie should be aiming for a Morena Baccarin look, rather than a Michelle Williams look. It is always better to rock the drop-dead chic of an alien warrior princess than to bob in the wake of the little mermaid waif of Park Slope.

      Better to take cues from Halle Berry, frankly. 

    • Srw27

      I read on a gossip site that she’s preggers, hence the blousey dress. There is NO excuse, however, for that hideous craft explosion around her neck.

    • Helene Holter

      The pixie doesn’t suit her? You two gays be crazy.

    • librarygrrl64

      Between this and her last look (the Stella McCartney), me thinks the girl needs a bra.

    • librarygrrl64

      Wow, I made a costume kind of like this when I was Demeter one Halloween. Needless to say, it didn’t cost as much as a Gucci gown. And, oh yeah, it was A HALLOWEN COSTUME. Nice try, Gucci.

      Looks like a “maid from the glen” out of Midsummers Nights Dream, Yawn in this case! N I agree with the hair! Not hre and not origional!
