In or Out: Anne Hathaway in Prabal Gurung

Posted on July 17, 2012

Kittens, T & Lo have decided to start the day with an argument. Sometimes when they’ve been together a really long time, a couple will wake up one morning,  get out of bed, take one look at each other and agree: “Yep. We’re gonna have ourselves a fight today.”

Marrieds and other long-terms, you know what we say is true.


Anne Hathaway attends the premiere of “The Dark Knight Rises” in New York City in a Prabal Gurung gown paired with Casadei shoes and Kwiat jewelry.

Prabal Resort 2013 Collection

And now… a short one-act play:

Lo: I think she looks great.

T: You’re kidding me.

Lo: No, I am NOT kidding you. I am quite serious.

T: Well allright, Miss Priss. You wanna share with the rest of the class why you’re so enamored with this dress?

Lo: I hate when you start performing for a non-existent audience.

T: I do not do that.

Lo: Oh, please. Anyway, I think the back is gorgeous.

T: And…? That’s it? Because it looks like a poorly draped sheet to me.

Lo: I have a feeling the dress was more dramatic in person.

T: Weak tea. And she looks droopy.

Lo: She needs to work on her posture.

T: She needs to work on her DRESS.

Lo: Well, I like the shoes.

T: Oh, come on. You’re making shit up now. You can’t even SEE the shoes.

Lo: I can too. Fourth picture down.

T: My, yes. That glimpse of her toe box is scintillating.

Lo: Okay, fashion mastermind. Give me your take.

T: Like I said; she looks droopy and the dress looks over-draped. Essentially, it’s a fit issue. The whole thing just kinda hangs off her. Adding that modesty panel and twisting the straps ruined the lines of the dress.

Lo: That’s it?

T: Plus a disturbing lack of jewelry.

Lo: She’s wearing a bracelet.

T: Sure, but with that hair and a goddess gown, she really needed some earrings to punctuate the look.

Lo: Well, I think she looks classically gorgeous.

T: And I think she looks depressingly half-assed.

Lo: Oh, shut up.

T: You shut up.

Aaaaannnd scene.

There you have it, minions. Choose your daddy.

  • OUT!!! She looks droopy and sad..not beautiful

    • EveEve

      Out!  It looks like she got a roll of toilet paper stuck up her ass right before she had to hit the red carpet.  [Sorry Anne, I love you!]   Pappa Tom is right in all ways on this sad number.  He could have added that the peplum is a pathetic add-on that does nothing for her or the dress, and the fabric has serious stretch marks going all over her bustline.

  • lolaleen

    I almost always go with Lorenzo on these, and this is no exception. She’s IN for me.

    • Jill_3

       I agree: IN. Sorry T!

  • I really really surprised myself in liking this one. You are right in that there are fit issues happening, but there’s still something about it that really suits her, and I didn’t expect that.

    • There is also some serious sideboob happening but the overall effect is quite striking.

  • Hetha Innis

    TOM all the way!

    • abfidy

      I feel like it could have been ok with colorful jewelry. Maybe emeralds. But you’re right, as is, the white just looks garish. Which seems like a bizarre thing to say about white, but there you go.

      • LesYeuxHiboux

         Emeralds would have been lovely, or even just some bold onyx if she wanted striking contrast.

  • Martova

    Out. Sorry Lorenzo.

  • I’m with Papa Tom.  The fit is all wrong and it’s really washing her out. 

    • My favorite daddy today is TOM. Out

  • Maluca

    I’m siding with T here. I expect more from her. Is she still working with la Zoe? 

  • Out. Twee haircut deserves a twee dress. She looks like a sad cancer patient wrapped in a sheet.

    • gabbilevy

      Seems appropriate for her upcoming movie though, don’t you think? Maybe this is just a carefully choreographed reminder that she’s got that musical movie coming up soon.

      … not that it’s an excuse.

    • CatherineRhodes

       Great imagery.

    • Glammie

      I don’t think she looks that bad, but I think the dress and the haircut are fighting somehow.  All that billowing white needs some big hair.  With that pixie, though, Annie needs to either go twee–Michelle Williams–or edgy–Rooney Mara.  I think she’s wearing her usual style, but it doesn’t go with the haircut.  I don’t think even earrings would fix it.

  • mom2ab

    First thoughts were  “droopy bedsheet” and “where are her earrings”.  Out

  • OUT – droop droop droop droop SAG.

  • At first glance, I was on Lo’s side. But T is right… that modesty panel did ruin the fit. The top is sort of bunched now and you really notice the panel and how it adds weight to the dress’s midsection, when you should be looking at the model’s chest… which is great! 😉

    • RzYoung

      Modesty panel-wise, is Ann’s jewelled and the models illusion netting? I can see some sort of panel in the original but can’t make out the fabric. 

  • EverybodysStarling

    I’m with T. It’s not her week and this is an OUT! 

  • Out!!! The attempt at peplum is awkwardly placed and makes her hips/thighs look awful. Also, the poor draping on the back looks cheap.

  • formerlyAnon

    Abandoning my usual position to agree (mostly) with Lorenzo. In.  Agree with all his points, though there IS a bit of dissonance in the front view, where the top seems almost floppily casual compared with the rear view & train.

    Despite the “in” Tom is right about the jewelry.

  • Vanja

    A sheet made into a dress which is too big, was my first thought. So, I’m siding with papa Tom.

  • This dress is too much for her. Sorry Lorenzo 🙁

    But there is hope- ship the gown off to Zoe Saldana STAT, and we can make right in the world again.

    Otherwise…Over and OUT!

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      I can see Zoe rocking this number, and helping me overlook its weak points, so yes, let’s get this over to La Saldana ASAP!

  • TRSmith

    T is correct on all counts.

  • My first thought was “That dress doesn’t fit her properly.” Then I saw the model and I thought “That dress doesn’t fit ANYONE properly!” Then I saw the back and I thought “Gorg!” Sorry, Lorenzo…despite the back, it’s an OUT for me.

    • Sobaika

      Yeah, the back does look pretty great. It’s everything else that’s the problem.

  • leah besson

    team tom.  that looks terrible.  out

  • piecesofconfetti

    Sorry, OUT. I think it can be a very pretty, dramatic dress, but it just looks sloppy on her somehow.

  • Out, I really hate peplums

  • teensmom99

    Papa Tom this time–she looks like a kid playing dress up in mom’s large dress.

  • I find myself always agreeing with T in these cases. OUT!

  • Martha Anderson

    she is out

      hippy and thick in the middle, this dress unflatters .  I am not sure if it was skin tight it would be any different.  The fabric and the ruffle add weight to the torso.

  • OUT. I’ve seen toilet paper dresses on pregnant women at baby showers which look more flattering.

  • rumcg66

    I’m with Lorenzo. IN.

  • Jangle57

    I’m with Team Tom – my first thought was: this is doing nothing for her.  Then I saw the back and thought that looked gorgeous – but not gorgous enough to excuse the front – unless she walked backwards the entire time?  No, I thought not.  OUT

    • My thoughts exactly. An interesting back does not a good dress make, unless you want someone to leave.

  • Out. It’s droopy, drapey mess. It’s amazing how that dress can make such a thin girl look thick-waisted. 

  • JackieOBlue

    I’m with Papa T.   The fit is all wrong on her.

  • lalahartma

    I say: out.

  • rougeort

    I don’t know… this is a sad excuse of a dress in the front, although the back is masterfully draped. I sort of like it. NEUTRAL REPRESENT!

  • MarissaLG

    OUT. It’s a beautiful gown on the model, but in real life it looks cheap and poorly made. It might be the color, or the draping, or the fit…okay it’ all three. Sorry, Annie- it’s a definite out. 

  • antheapena

    hate taking sides but…. Tom

  • jw_ny


    I was all set to side with Lo on this one because at 1st glance and from the rear…lovely.  Then, the 2nd look…

    There are fit issues with the bodice front, the bulky straps in front do not transition well to the drape back,  I dislike the peplum, and I do get a bed sheet feel (in the shoe pic…lol.) I really believe that this would look so much better in person, and white is difficult to photograph too, however, these gowns need to photograph well on the RC, and this doesn’t.  Perfect amount of jewelery afaic…dangling earrings on her with this would be too much with that short hairstyle.  Simple accessories work best on her and she does look classic…so siding with Lo on that part too. 

  • NDC_IPCentral

    Lorenzo, you know I think you’re the bees’ knees, but I’m with Tom on this look.  Droopy, overwrought – the bodice needs re-working from the git-go and by that I mean conception.  The peplum doesn’t enhance the design, either.  I like the cowl in the back, but there is, as Tom noted, just too much fabric there.

    I’m also no fan of these puddling hems, which must be filthy by the time the dress-wearing occasion has concluded.  An opportunity to trip and fall and to dust the floor.

    All the best, even if there’s a bit of disagreement at chez T Lo,


    • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

      Like Kors says – “She’s pooping fabric!”. 

  • This dress is a miracle! It actually made one of the thinnest women on the planet look fat! The shot from the back is OK (lack of earrings notwithstanding), but overall it’s a definite OUT! Sorry Lorenzo.

  • LOVE THE DRESS – But sadly, not on her. It’s just so sad and tired looking. Out.

  • Out.  Anne has not been on a winning track with me lately.  When I saw the white I was hopeful.  Alas, it was short lived.  The front of the bodice looks like she pulled it out of a duffle bag.  Even the breast plate looks saggy.

  • DinaSews

    I hate choosing sides!  Sorry, it’s an OUT.  It screams negligee.

  • jenno1013

    Twisting the straps really did ruin the look – gave the dress volume where it needed sleek.  OUT.

  • mjude

    sorry anne but OUT

  • jenuwefa

    I like it overall, but it seems a bit see-through?

  • I LOVE Anne, but this look lands just on the OUT side of the argument for me.  It blends in with her pale skin too much & the fit just isn’t there.  I like the idea of this dress on her, but not the  execution.  

  • PaulaBerman

    Tom is completely correct in every way. That dress is horrible. OUT.

  • Pennymac

    Going with Uncle T. Droopy and wilted, and poorly draped sheet.

  • I’ll go with Papa Tom. so OUT. I don’t hate the dress, but it could’ve fit her better.

  • jmorino08

    Maybe I need more coffee but I actually agree with both of you! The back of the bodice is gorgeous but the bottom half is a hack job. The dress suits her to a t, in theory, but it’s obviously at least 2 sizes too big for her and the twisting of the straps is an affront to the design. She looks classic and gorgeous, but she does need more jewelry. I can’t choose! Don’t make me choose, daddies!!

  • miagain

    I like her going rather than coming… so in that sense I’m with Lorenzo….HOWEVER… the front looks droopy and dumb… so I’m with Tom…. dear me!!

  • Allyson Wells

    The back is pretty, but I don’t think it makes up for the front.  The shape is not flattering at all, and earrings definitely would have helped. I’m gonna have to say OUT. She could have done much better.

  • Judy_S

    I give her an IN, though my raptures are very moderate (as Lo’s actually seem to be too). It’s not a great look but I think she carries it off adequately. 

  • AmeliaEve

    Tom’s got it. Trying to make it strappy totally ruins the V of the front. The original does appear to have some sort of modesty panel, but it doesn’t jump out as much. And Annie’s wouldn’t if the bold neckline were still there to give it focus. I don’t mind the color, and I think the back draping is quite pretty, but the “puddled” hem in front just looks sloppy. I think that the wadded up effect is just exacerbated by the color, as is the see-through cling factor. Girlfriend needs a slip. And earrings. Definitely earrings.

  • T’s my daddy today.  Sorry Lo!

  • Scimommy

    Out. Sorry Lo. 🙁

  • I’m with T! As in – this dress does not fit her to a” T”….  

  • Larkin21

    I agree that it’s a little bit droopy but not excessively so. And that back is just amazing! All things considered, I’m with Lorenzo. IN! And stand up straight, Miss Anne.

  • allj

    I hate when you put us kids in the middle:( But out. There’s too much going on with that dress, and it wasn’t well-executed. I was trying to give her the benefit of the doubt, but when I saw the back it was over. Draping plus a tail? Nope.

  • mrssage

    I think she looks lovely. and summer cool in the dramatic white. I’m voting IN.

  • vintagion

    Out. Totally ruined the shape. 

  • sagecreek

    OUT — the whole think looks saggy and droopy and by association, so does Anne.

    I do kind of like the back, though.

  • Uh-oh, I agree with you both. There are fit issues, the straps did look better on the runway version, BUT the shoes look like they are probably very cute, and the back of the dress is gorgeous. Plus I just generally think she looks lovely.

    Marginal IN!

  • GillianHolroyd

    oh so OUT because sad, droopy, froopy, moopy. That bodice is some kind of twisted gym singlet. Peplum. I just can’t.

  • In, but barely. Hate the front, love the back, tipped to in because I love her.

  • Catiline

    I do love the back, but it’s not enough to make up for the wrinkly front and the awful place where this dress hits her waist.  OUT.

  • I’m with Lo on this one – she’s in, but only by a little.  The biggest issue is the twist in the shoulders – if that was smoothed out I think the drape would also be smoother.  But rest is pretty ok. 
    Make a new category between IN and OUT – give us an option for something like a MEH – as in MEH, it’s ok (said with a Yiddish accent and a shrug of the shoulders). In this case I’d vote for MEH if I could.

  • In. This is graceful and completely in her wheelhouse. The silver sparkles in the bodice compensate for the lack of jewelry.

  • Renee Bender

    Lorenzo is my daddy!  In.

  • ringthing

    Team Tom.

  • pookiesmom


  • Zach Ng Zheng Yang

    Daddy Tom!!!!

  • Out. Someone made that dress look like a PR reject. Sorry Lo-daddy.

  • nannypoo

    I think we’re witnessing the Emma Stone Phenomenon: When there are a million appearances to be made to pimp a movie the star at first looks fabulous, but soon she has used up all the attractive dresses and is left with this and with the black/white McCartney disaster. She needs to stay home for a few days and regroup.

  • Ooooh, I usually go with Daddy Lo, but this is a SAADDD state of affairs.  Papa Tom is right: O.U.T.

  •  LOL. Team T for me…Out.

  • no. nononono. no. no. no.


  • Warrior89

    Tom is my daddy.

    I admit to irrationally not liking her.  But that dress is eww, and the peplum is dumb, and it looks like it’s all too big.  However, her tits look super-perky.  So at least she’s got that going on.

  • janetjb


    The back from the waist down is awful and the front doesn’t really fit.  Sorry Lo, I usually side with you but not this time.

  • It’s…okay? Does that mean joint custody?

  • KuriousKat

    Out for all the reasons Tom said and because she should stay away from bright whites: those do not flatter her skin tone. I have similar coloring and I choose creams and winter whites but stay away from the bright whites for the reason you see in the photos above.

  • KC

    The first thing I thought was “Is she going to a toga party???” Because seriously it looks like she grabbed her bed sheets and draped them around her body….and not in a cute way. I agree about the straps, I hate it when stars alter a dress and make it WORSE. On the model it looks pretty good…it really IS the fit. And maybe its just the camera but the bottom half looks almost like light grey jersey so she looks weird. I also hate the lack of jewelry, I just think emphasizes how bedsheety and weirdly casual this looks. I may be in the minority but I hate the short hair on her. She’s beautiful and I really love her as an actress but her features are a bit too big for so little hair. I prefer her with longer hair. But the back IS very beautiful.

  • I was torn between mommy and daddy, but the back did it for me: it’s an IN.
    Could she be working it more? Of course, but still, stunning. 

  • MissAnnieRN

    Team Tom.

  • NurseEllen

     You CALL it EXACTLY the way you see it, Papa Tom, and I say “bravo”.  “Depressingly half-assed”, indeed.

    Hope the day gets better for you two… need to pout or huff at each other just because you started that way.  (Although it does make for good drama.)

  • I’m halfway between you two. She looks hideous at the front and gorgeous at the back. A really good fit is badly needed, as are the earrings. Maybe keeping the belt would have helped but I doubt it. I do think this is anyone’s dress, not even the model’s.

  • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

    OUT.  I hate the peplum, which makes her look thick through the midsection.  The twisted straps just ruin the drape of the top.  The back looks great at first, but on second look, not so much.  She needed something more than teeny tiny stud earrings.  Don’t like the color either.  Anne is not having a good week!

  • Carina Yariv

    NOT working at all. It’s the fit. Sorry Lo. 

  • ChaquitaPhilly

    OUT! Poor thing looks like a leftover “Bride of Dracula”.

  • chitowndg

    In – this is a dramatic and different look from the usual.

  • Kayceed

    I’m with Papa Tom. Out.

  • T for the win.  This is just…NO.  For all the reasons stated above.  It’s at least 3 sizes too big, it does look like a design student’s experiement in draping with an uncooperative bed sheet, and who the heck puts sequins on a modesty panel and then has said modesty panel stop right at the base of the “goils”?  — it’s an out for me

  • Nariya

    Out. Tom has it DOWN.

  • alyce1213

    OUT to the max.  And it’s more than a fit issue, that dress is a sorrow.
    I’m with Tom.  Lo- wtf??? Are you ok?

  • twocee

    Out.  Maybe if she had her long hair back this would work better, but right now it’s definitely not her dress.

  • carolynmo

    I’m with Papa Tom. This is a depressing look.

  • VicksieDo

    The dress is awful, more importantly, you should never tell your spouse or child to shut up, IMO. 

  • super out.  while she’s all waify post-les mis filming she needs to go skin tight just to look less like a 12 yr old boy.  too droopy in the front and back and not a good color for her.  looks like my mom’s nightgown. 

  • I’m with Tom. It’s droopy and depressing and doesn’t look like it fits right.

  • Daniel Bayer

    While I think she looks good, I agree with Tom this time: FOR HER, this is half-assed. Come on, Annie! This is the premiere of your CATWOMAN movie, and you wear a WHITE GODDESS GOWN!?!?!? You’re better than that!

    • I think that’s exactly what she’s trying to say.

  • Kim Sheehan

    Disney princess. 

  • Le_Sigh

    NO.  No no no. 

    Shame she just can’t enter a room backwards, as the back is lovely.  But that front is too tragic.  Also am just not feeling the pixie on her. 

  • I have to go with Papa Tom and give her an OUT. 

    Actually, when I first saw the pictures, I thought she looked ill. I think statement jewelry could’ve helped a bit. Overall I feel the look is listless and lifeless. 

  • Papa Tom – I’m on your side – OUT

  • OUT! Sorry Lo. I like the dress on the model but the adjustments just aren’t flattering. 

  • Jessica O’Connell

    OUT. Definitely with Tom on this one. She needed something fit a little better and some kickass jewelery to make it work.

  • margaret meyers

    Out.  Too many ideas too poorly executed. 
    When the Victorians did that kind of gathering and draping they made sure there was a foundation underneath that made it work.  The draping here makes the fabric look cheap and the body look misshapen.

  • I love you both, but the dress doesn’t fit and she absolutely needs to compensate more for the boy hair.  OUT.

  • Sunshine16

    why is she suddenly wearing boob-tastrophies?

  • Jillaine13

    OUT, and Papa Tom yada yada …. This look is blah and the bodice is taped within an inch of its life. Looks also like a roll of tp somehow (?) unrolled from her waistband.  Earrings and/or a necklace would definitely add some interest. 

  • Going to have to go with OUT, much as I love you both. I like the back, but that top, especially in the front, is so awkward. And I hate the draping in the front of the skirt. Meh. 

  • MissMariRose

    I’ve always thought of myself as a Lo girl, but I cannot get behind this one. The peplum and the Morticia Addams puddle are a bridge too far for me.

    I’m with Daddy T. OUT!

  • MilaXX

    I’m with papa Tom on this one. Close, but no cigar. OUT

  • margaret meyers

    And you didn’t mention the woven tinsel insert in the low neckline.

  • She cuts such a striking figure in this dress that I can’t help but love it on her. I literally gasped when I first saw it – white is a great color on her. The details are certainly a little frumpy – it’s a little big on her, the boobs are sad and droopy, that weird diamond sheath on her chest is mind-numbing. But overall, I still think she looks really beautiful. 

  • My daddy is Tom. I really wonder what the hell Rachel Zoe is drinking these days. The top back of that gown is lovely, the bottom is way overdone, with ripples and drapes all pulling her down. The front is awful. In some views her boobs look like they defy gravity and in others they look droopy. I am over peplums, if Anne Hathaway can’t wear a peplum, no one, except for maybe Dita Von Teese, can.  OUT OUT OUT (sorry Anne, I still think you’re wonderful but the gown, not so much).

  • Vlasta Bubinka

    That is one aggressively unflattering bedsheet.

  • theblondette

    OUT! With you, Tom. Droopy boobs, saggy dress, bleeh..

  • TropiCarla

    Even though Daddy Lo hooked me with the Mad Men fashion, Papa Tom reeled me in with all the nerdy stuff. I love you both and hope you have the best time making up. 😉 Now that I have almost 5 yrs of marriage under my belt I can attest the benefits of the adrenaline rush that comes from the occasional fight.

  • Evy Colón

    I’m with Tom

  • It always comes down to Tom, somehow.

    This dress is all wrong. None of the elements work together.

  • guest2visits

    No no no – barely passable on the model. It’s a bed sheet.  I see Anne is still in the middle of her black and white period.

  • Papa Tom!! Also, this whole post had me cube-giggling.

  • kelsita421

    i see the bed sheet, but my initial reaction was that she looks lovely — gotta go with my gut — IN!

  • kolokOlchik

    Papa Tom all the way!  Droopy, too long, sad peplum.  I mean, the dress is ugly even on the model.  So OUT!

  • belfebe

    OUT!!! That dress is doing nothing for her.  Yes the back is lovely.  But it still looks like a badly draped sheet on her.

  • allisankelly

    OUT! I’m with Papa Tom. The dress just looks too big.

  • mhleta

    Let’s count the elements here: Train; peplum; shirring; cowl back; twisted straps; plunging neckline (Hollywood taped to breasts);drapery in front; poorly retro fitted modesty piece that looks like a deconstructed, bedazzled oven mitt. Get rid of four of these things and then we have a dress. I’m with T. Frustrating,because she has such goddess potential. Rachel Zoe did this? She’s still got postpartum brain damage. It happens. 

  • Jessica Goldstein

    It’s not my favorite, but I like it well enough. Lo is my daddy today.

  • Would have been an IN had the dress been properly fitted & hemmed, and had she added some more jewelry and/or dramatic makeup. Too droopy.

  • lrhoff

    I could go either way if truly pressed, but I don’t like the dress on the model, either.  She just chose the wrong dress, because no one would really make this shine, in my opinion…..

  • Lisa Sloman


  • You both make some good points, but she’s more OUT than in.  Papa T for the win!  (And I hate it when you make me side with one Daddy over the other!!)

  • I CANNOT get past the haircut! Terrible. Out!

  • AmyAW

    OUT!! It makes her look like she has a flat chest and wide hips and we KNOW that is not the case.
    Big old cup of out!

  • I think that it’s an almost… hence the fight. There’s potential there but, I’m sorry to say, the end result is a vote of OUT for me.

  • Aurumgirl

    I just hate the dress.  It’s a slovenly bride/woman/child kind of design, I can’t imagine who’d look good in it.  The model looks like she’s posed and dressed to be the illustration from an antique medical text, a pictorial to give you an idea of what “scrofulous” looks like. 

    I couldn’t choose a daddy between you.  Have yourselves a good rassle, but make up nice, that’s all I ask.

  • Papa Tom knows the score.

  • BazoDee

    Team Tom!!  Out!! 

  • Mexxoo

    I liked the sheer modesty panel in the original better than the be-dazzled one on Anne’s gown (and no, bedazzling the gown doesn’t mean it won’t need any other jewelry accents…).  And I agree with the fit issue – the whole things looks to big on her.  It’s almost like the shoulders were rolled as a quick fix to the size(s)-too-large problem.  OUT!

  • RzYoung

    I’m with daddy T, I don’t like it, I think quite honestly her boobs are too big for it – rather than delicately draped the fabric is stuck on with t*t tape so much that it ruins the shape. Plus the fabric looks cheap from here. Sorry, out from me. I still love her hair and face though if that’s any help?

  • fungstyle

    Out! Papa Tom is correct about the modifications and fit being all wrong. 

  • aimee_parrott

    For some reason I usually end up agreeing with Tom in these situations, with I’m with Lorenzo on this one.  I think she looks lovely.  Agreed that the fit in the bodice is a little wonky, but that’s not enough to move it from in to out for me.  IN.

  • AthenaJ

    Love you, daddy Lo, but I’ve gotta go with Papa Tom on this. The back looks beautiful, but the front is droopy and sad.

  • Tamara Hogan

    That dress in red or black would be sublime.

  • kikisayshi

    Ok I was all about the In, considering there is only so much she can do with the Eponine hair, until I saw the back. It looks like she has toilet paper stuck in her pantyhose. Sorry Lo, but she is OUT.

  • Eclectic Mayhem

    Sorry Lo, I’m with Papa Tom on this one; I really don’t like the way the dress is fitting her torso.  Droopsville – OUT!

  • Out, sad, droopy, uninteresting. 

  • DaveUWSNYC

    She looks sheety…I’m with Papa T on this one.

  • In. The back sells it and weirdly enough it goes great with her hair.

  • LinXGUA

    That dress looks like a sheet on the model.
    On Anne, it looks like “tissue” paper.
    Sorry but OUT.

  • PeggyOC

    Out.  Papa Tom is right.  It’s a dreary sateen bed sheet.  

  • TheOriginalLulu

    I’m with Papa Tom. That thing is doing awful things to her body.

  • nicole seligman

    OUT. i actually like the dress on the model (i think because she’s generally boobless), but anne is looking a mess.

  • Lisa

    I like it for the most part, but the bust is bothering me.  It looks like it’s about to fall right off of those boobages.

  • Ellie Rowe

    Out! Four for you Papa Tom, you go Papa Tom.

    And none for Daddy Lorenzo, bye.

  • spititout

    She is in her awkward stage of pregnancy where nothing fits right.  Thickening waist and hips, but not thick enough for maternity clothes.  And maybe still trying to disguise the fact, since no announcement yet.  OUT to her stylist for poor pregnancy fashion sense, is her stylist really Rachel Zoe?  Then, double OUT because you have been there!

  • I love the dress, but not on her. First of all, she is too pale for white. Second: THE HAIR. Coming from a woman who loves short hair….that look is NOT working for her. Michelle Williams and Carey Mulligan have the features to pull it off. Hathaway’s face is too round. She looks like a little child.

    • In her defense, the hair was shaved for a movie

  • Pappa Tom!

  • elleg929

    OUT – gotta go with Tom on this one…droopy and ill-fitting.

  • ConnieBV

    Sorry, Lorenzo. I’m with Tom. Dye this gown black or a rich jewel tone and you could have overlooked the fact that it is at least one full size too big, but she is wayyyy too pale for the way this is styled. OUT.

  • Cathy S

    I frequently find myself agreeing with Lorenzo. But not today. Tom is correct–she’s wearing a droopy-ass sheet and looks sad. Out.

  • AlexisPayne

    I’m siding with Tom, this is not working at all. OUT.

  • VeryClaire

    No. Always no on peplum, always no on dresses that need to be taped on. No to the awkwardly placed modesty panel (what is that covering?). Always no on dresses with too much shit going on.

  • JMB_edits

    I love you both!  The back is amazing but it’s droopy and washed out.  You’re both right!

  • Sorry Lorenzo. OUT.

  • TheLaurenJean

    It gives her hunchback syndrome. Out.

  • Team Tom! Ugly, unflattering and I cant wait till the peplum craze dies a horrific death. Why, why, why, WHY does anybody think a vag-butt ruffle is attractive on anyone over the age of 2????? 

  • PinkLemon

    sadly dull. OUT.

  • marishka1

    Sorry, Love you, Lorenzo, but I gotta go with Tom on this one. Droopy droopy droopy. OUT.

  • Out. From the front she looks like she has a potbelly and a wide ass.

  • OUT! Papa Tom knows the score!
    It’s just a big, sad, droopy, weird mess.

  • Sal Neslusan

    out! ill fitting.

  • kimmeister

    Siding with Tom today.  The upper back is beautiful, but even her butt looks droopy.  Out.

  • In! Lorenzo knows best.

  • She’s a bit too shortwaisted for this look

  • ccm800

    I think you guys put more effort into this look than she did. OUT

  • msdamselfly

     Can’t decide–in some photos the neckline looks very unflattering-too exposed.  However, the white and silver colors look very pretty against the backdrop.

  • QuincyTKatz

    I hate it when daddies fight.
    I love you both, but on this one I take after my daddy.
    Tom is so right

  • I’m a little traumatized:  I always thought Lorenzo was my real daddy, but T is totally right on this one.

  • In! Lorenzo’s right, she looks cool as a cucumber. This is basically the look to say: Catwoman is just my part in the film, guys, I’m a model wanabee as always.

  • tereliz

    I’m with Lo this time. If anyone can pull off droopy bedsheet fabulous, it’s Anne. LOVE the back, but I do feel like it’s writing a check the front can’t cash. And the peplum kind of looks like an afterthought… but she’s just so pretty! I think this would be better in person, too. Imma give her an IN.

  • LexusV

    The chest and shoulder straps are ill-fitted, and the waist looks off on her compared to the model. It’s not flattering on her body type

  • j_anson

    Oh man. So torn. The back really is gorgeous. But the front really is droopy and sad. I guess the front wins for me, since she can’t walk around backwards with her head turned over her shoulder all the time. Out.

  • T for the win! Sorry L, the dress is beautiful but it’s not shown well here. The fit is totally off and they shouldn’t have messed with the straps. The beauty of the dress is that it looks deceptively simple and casual. But the effect isn’t the same when the dress fits so poorly. And yes, she needed earrings. I love Annie and the dress, but it missed the mark.

  • Celandine1

    OUT! The hair doesn’t go with the dress and the dress is droopy. The
    twisted straps make me think that the dress didn’t fit and someone
    twisted them to get the bodice a tighter so it wouldn’t fall off her.
    What I see of the shoe looks too heavy for the dress. *SIGH* Is Rachel Zoe
    mad at Ann? 

  • Sarah Thomas

    I have seen the Audreybot, and you, Catwoman, are no Audreybot.

  • LesYeuxHiboux

    I blame the peplum. I don’t think she looks exactly droopy, but she has a lot of real estate between her chin and her girls naturally, which needs to be taken into account now that her hair is so short. The back of the dress is lovely (when I imagine it without the peplum), but we’ve  seen he look so much better that this has to be OUT.

  • She is just gorgeous in white and while I think the dress is mostly just nice, IN.

  • Papa Tom!  She looks god awful.

  • Julie Fountain

    Papa Tom for the win! Poorly draped sheet is exactly what we have here.  She’s a lovely girl in an awful dress. 

  • T’s my daddy. That dress does not fit.

  • mommyca

    I’m with Tom here…. the fit in the front is really sad, and definitely twisting the straps made it wrong…. 

  • Anathema_Device

    Out. I’m with Papa Tom here. It looks poorly homemade from a sheet.

    And my mom used to call me Miss Priss!!!

  • Violina23

    Awful. PR challenge gone horribly wrong.

  • Imasewsure

    Daddy T is right… she looks awful… pretty from the back I guess but she’s not walking backwards down the carpet…. OUT!

  • I am usually in the Lo camp but today I am with T. Though I think the bedazzled modesty panel is an improvement on the nude panel thing in the original dress. Thing is, princess-playing Hathaway generally has impeccable posture which leads me to blame the dress. Out.
    But I agree with Lo that the back is pretty. But I can’t with the plunge+panel+peplum dust ruffle.

  • marilyn

    Out.  45 yar old square-jawed librarian in long nightie.  Yikes.

    She may as well forget ever looking sexy with that haircut.  From the neck up she looks like a 1960’s TV mom.

  • Wellworn

    That is an ugly, overworked, unflattering, weird dress.  Out!  The back is better than the front but only because anything would be better than the front.  And too many elements in the back.  Ann tends to make anything look better than it is because she is striking and 7 feel tall, but ick, no!

  • L.


  • Sweetvegan

    Out. That dress was made for someone taller, with a longer back waist length. That’s why they twisted the straps – to try to shorten them. And why put a peplum on a draped goddess gown?!

  • Lo is my daddy. IN. Yes, the form is drapey but it’s striking and dramatic on her.

  • leave_Blake_alone

    Out out out out out out out. And I really don’t think that hair works for her.

  • i’m with papa bear Tom.  out.

  • Zippypie

    It looks like it was huge in the bodice and that’s why the straps are twisted – an “artful” attempt at keeping the damn thing on her body.  Got to side with T on this one.  She looks like she’s attempting to be comfortable in it but failing miserably.  OUT.

  • I agree that the dress is stunning from the back, but white doesn’t seem to do her skin tone any favors.  However, if she’d just pull back her shoulders, I’d give it an IN.

  • Totally agree with Tom. Love the back — but not enough to make up for the rest of the issues. Now, kiss and make up. (That’s the best part of fight day.)

  • I’m going with Daddy Lo on this one – IN!

    I love the dress, though I think it could fit a little better in the bust area. And a bracelet or earrings to really polish it off. 

  • lamamu

    OUT! Something about the way the material drapes looks like sad polyester, which can’t be true. I’m sure the fabric is spun from the gossamer wings of a thousand sparkly fireflies. But here, it only looks sad, heavy and droopy.

  • Lorenzo is my daddy! It’s definitely not near a WERQ, but she still looks lovely despite some minor fit issues. IN.

  • faul_ani

    OUT! Really? CATWOMAN?!

    I agree with Tom! Sorry Lo!

  • Marian Humin

    I think she looks beautiful. The dress is classic. Droopy? You’ve got to be kidding! Just because her breasts aren’t hoisted up to her neck….

  • ballerinawithagun

    Out. I like the idea of the dress…I love peplums but it needs the waistband for delineation that they took away from the original. The twisted shoulder area is horrible, again the original looks smooth and perfect. She has a great butt so they should have just left the ruched back showing instead of covering it up with a train. I like the original inset under the bust better where it looks like an undergarment. Both dresses need to be hemmed to get away from the bedsheet effect.

  • Marla Good

    Out. And she knows it. Look at her facial expressions. But you can’t. Because your eyes can’t stop going back to how, for what’s even that dress’ best aspect, the butt furrows don’t match each other.

  • andreawey

    Tom is my daddy! (actually my dad’s name is Tom lol) the top of the dress is ugly and cheap looking……

  • ThaliaMenninger

    I agree with at least a little on both sides. The back is pretty. BUT the front is tragic, droopy, uninspired and looks like a poorly draped sheet. The pretty back isn’t enough to compensate for that, plus Marla Good below me is right that the butt furrows don’t match. OUT OUT OUT.

  • Bozhi

    In. She looks great.

  • GTrain


  • erinbinek

    Tom’s right on this one. My first impression: YUCK. I don’t think that was the look she was going for.

  • trisker

    IN Lorenzo

  • Kay

    i feel like if you’re not leaning back all of the time, this dress is a nightmare…

  • Call me Bee

    Her face and her hair and her shoes are so beautifully perfect.  Then there’s that dress.  I’ll bet this dress looked great on paper–drapey, peplum, low v neck, a little bling, stunning from the back… 
    But in reality it’s not good.  So…a reluctant OUT.  Sorry, Anne.  I hope you’re not mad at me….

  • BradWatson

    Yeah, this is what we’d have called a BFD dress, back in the day. Better from a distance.
    Or, in the sage words of Cher Horowitz, “a full-on Monet… up close it’s a big-ole mess.”

  • Does not fit to a depressing degree. OUT.

  • unbornfawn

    I hate it when I have to take sides with one of my beloved gay uncles.  That dress is over-designed and it sitting on her like an over large wet noodle. From the neck up she looks fine, but her head doesn’t go with the dress, she needs more hair or jewelry or something.  OUT.

  • Joyce VG

    OUUUUUT.  Papa Tom all the way.  

  • Sara__B

    Out. Droopy dress and posture, and a lack of jewelry and color. (I like Abfidy’s idea of emerald earrings…)

  • demidaemon

    OUT. Sorry, but this is a mess. The back is sort of pretty, but it mostly resembles wadded up toilet paper to me.

  • peachy16

    Lo is right, T is wrong.  Simple as that.

  • Rebecca Zmarzly

    Love the back, but the front is tragic. OUT!

  • Lilithcat

    I do like the back, but I keep wondering who the groom is.

  • cmb92191

    Even the model looks disgusted with the dress.  She is so beautiful.. and well this dress really isn’t.   The back is almost sort of kind of pretty….but the rest not so much

  • greyhoundgirl

    OUT  Love the cowl-like back of the bodice–that’s it for the likes.

  • altalinda

    Ooooo, for once Lo is my Daddy.  The back is gorgeous.

  • Renaissance_Man_ATL

    IN!  Go team Lo!!!

  • it looks like one of those toilet paper dresses they have contests for…

  • OUT! The modesty panel really does screw things up here. And the only thing I can see here is a bedsheet–sorry Lo.

  • Emily Roach

    Out! Papa Tom!

  • Aly Light


  • Tom’s my daddy, this time.

  • Going with papa L here; it looks lovely! And seriously, there’s nothing wrong with her posture.

    Could have used some earrings, though.

  • Srw27

    OUT!  Not a fan of the peplum trend-if it makes a Fantine-esque Anne Hathaway look hippy then imagine what it will do for “real” women??

  • melanie0866

    Out.  The back is beautiful, but that cannot make up for the front.  Her top looks tiny and diminished and saggy and her bottom looks wide.

  • Papa T knows where it’s at. It looks like she caught the hem of her dress in her waistband while she was in the toilet. OUT. Also – that pixie do is all wrong for a girl with that honker.

  • lorelark

    I always end up agreeing with Tom: OUT!  Throw that bed sheet away, Anne!

  • prettybigkitty

    Tom wins again in my book.  droopy = out

  • phrenk

    Out.  The twisted straps did it in for me.


    OUT.  Papa Tom you are right on the money!!!  Horrible fabric!  Hate, Hate the twisted straps!  Why???  If I was the designer and someone did that to MY dress I would be pissed! 

  • TomBord

    So it doesn’t include the veil or the alterations ? …………………’s very Gretchen from RHWoOC. 

  • Maybe a “good on paper/bad in execution” dress? It seems like it should be pretty but looks unbalanced (too heavy?) and made with questionable materials (chest panel wonky?). It makes me feel vaguely uncomfortable.

  • CatherineRhodes

    Team Tom. OUT.

    BTW: You guys are very clever. You should do this for a living :–)

  • sweetlilvoice

    Papa Tom knows the score. It looks too big for her. I know her hair is that short for Le Mis but I don’t like that either. She looks really severe. 

  • Amy Ellinger

    out, BUT at least it’s not Stella.

  • Kthrow

    Team Pappa T all the way …. drooooooopee!

  • T’s right and IMO, that “apron” isn’t hitting her in the same place it hit the model and that makes all the difference.

  • OUT

  • i gotta go with daddy tom.  what happened to the straps?  on the model, they’re simple and straight, and on anne, they’re … rolled?  to make them thinner?  and so the whole dress … pulls, somehow?  plus, waist pouch:  never a good thing.

  • another_laura

    Going with Papa Tom on this one.  Poorly fitted bodice, needed necklace or earrings.  A miss from Our Miss Anne.

  • littlemac8

    I’m with you T, she looks gorgeous because she is gorgeous but the dress is doing her no favors.  OUT

  • Sorry, L.

    This dress looks like it was designed by a committee of Disney-fied kindergarteners.  OUT — say it loud and say it proud!

    And, yes, Tom’s my daddy.

  • Corazon Nunez

    Woah . . . that back is GORGEOUS in the last shot. And, T, you can too see the shoes. And they ARE cool. Sure, the front’s all screwy, but I’ll give it a pass. IN!

  • cleep1000


  • Pops Lo is right-she looks beautiful.  Though a stunning pair of earrings would’ve added so much.

  • OUT!  Papa Tom she looks weirdly poochy, hippy, lumpy, washed out, sad, and like her dress got caught in her thong after a trip to the Ladies…  She usually looks so chic or at least cute.  This makes me sad for her. 🙁  Sorry Anne.

  • bitchybitchybitchy

     This Bitter Kitten feels, after careful thought, that her beloved Uncle Tom is correct. Anne, please, you can do so much better than this…and, after all, you are Cat Woman in this flic-doesn’t that demand a bit more sass?

  • nancymae

    OUT! Papa Tom only speaks the truth.

  • CarolinLA

    Rachel Zoe seems to be failing Anne lately.  

  • SophieCollier

    Allllllmost pretty but that skirt is total bedsheet.  If she’d left the shoulders alone and maybe shortened the skirt so that it didn’t pool around her feet but hung in heavy pleats, it would be so Halston-chic.  

  • ChelseaNH

    OUT.  I had the same thoughts about the twisted straps; they just wonk up the bodice horribly.  (But L mostly has a point about the back draping nicely, except for the weirdness around the butt.)

  • OUT. With Tom all the way on this one.

  • lesmaha

    With Papa Tom!!

  • Candigirl1968

    Team Papa Tom

  • BrightsideSusan

    I am with Tom on this one – the twisrted straps did not help with the lift she needed and ruined the lines.  Lover her, love Lorenzo, but OUT

  • elizonthelam

    Love the back. Hate the front. Out.

    “Lo: I hate when you start performing for a non-existent audience.”

    I think all of us unborn fawns are always happy to be a non-existent audience. I know i am!

  • SRQkitten

    TLo said: Marrieds and other long-terms, you know what we say is true.


    And Papa Tom called it. That dress is depressing. On multiple levels.


  • Sorry, Lo, I hate it. Agree about the twisted straps being weird & lame and ruining the neckline. Plus, the fabric just looks cheap, which I’m sure it isn’t, but the way it’s pulling and drooping, I can’t help but think it was the wrong fabric for this treatment. It almost looks like a cheap knockoff of the runway look. Like, it should have a lining or something else under it? The drapery just looks kind of lifeless. I don’t know.  But I will say that if you just look at her head, she looks really pretty. 

  • SewingSiren

    Goo goo gah gah, me love Lolo.

  • Judy_J

    I’m torn. I was ready to say OUT until I saw the back view. That dress is gorgeous from the back! However, since I assume she wasn’t backing into every room she entered, I’m going with my first reaction. Sorry, Lo. OUT.

  • bellafigura1

    I love her almost unreservedly but this dress does not fit. 

  • redgauntlet

    Whoever is still Hathaway is an idiot. The pixie crop only works on small women with small heads like Mia Farrow and Jean Seberg – not on eight-foot tall carnival pinheads with triffid stalk necks. That hairdo is going to kill her career.

  • mila_8

    Papa T, all the way.

  • Gener1c

    Sorry Lo 🙁  Papa Tom! This isn’t good.  

  • Out. Daddy Tom is right.

  • judybrowni


    Papa Tom for the win.

    She looks like Tom Sawyer in wrong size David’s Bridal.

  • I’m with Lorenzo, IN!

  • Judih1

    I am on Team Tom – sorry Lorenzo. This is OUT

  • littlemissstrange

    Papa Tom does indeed know the score…. *apologetic look at Daddy Lorenzo*

  • TieDye64

    OUT! Papa Tom knows best.

  • I really like this dress on her! My main issue is that I’m not sure it goes with her current hairstyle, it would have looked gorgeous with old-school Hollywood hair.

  • Maddie_Faddenoid

    Definitely agree with Tom here – not a good look for Anne. Where T and Lo disagree, I find that I generally agree with T over Lo. However I’m not sure Tom should view that as a validation given that I’ve been wearing the same cat-hair-covered sweatpants for three days now, and have a dress in my wardrobe with a half-lady half-giraffe print on it.

    • Maddie_Faddenoid

      I like the back of the dress, and to be fair I hate her haircut so much that maybe I’m biased against anything she wears these days. But she does look washed out and the dress isn’t really doing anything for her. At best I’d say it was inoffensive.

  • Samantha Irene

    Totally OUT. Her  boobs are both too small and too big for that look. With her hair, and smaller boobs and earrings – things would be better. With big boobs and big hair it would be a bit trashy – but way more fun!!!

  • glennethph

    Out.  Losing weight made her lose her sense of style and/or sanity.

  • TheAutisticStepmom

    Out.  Why does her face look so…old?  I’ve noticed this in the last few months of Anne posts.

  • jan lee

    DADDY TOM TEAM FTW, it’s like a duck trying to be a swan, trying to look graceful but just failing

  • at first I thought it was whatshername from Once Upon a Time, the one with the pixie cut… for her this would have looked fine, but for Ms Hathaway? sadly its an out- the fit is just sloppy.

  • oohsparkley!

    I’m torn. At first I thought it was gorgeous, especially the back.  But it doesn’t lay quite right when you actually stop to look at it closely.  I guess I’d say she looks good but it should have been better.  And I agree that you really need earrings with that short hair and a gown.

  • elirt

    OUT! Tom is spot on – droooooooopy and the twisting on the sleeves make it a strange contrast for no reason. There’s no twisting on the model where it looks much better. Maybe it’s the fabric, but it looks cheap.

  • Kristy Evans

    Oh I do hate choosing between you. The back is lovely but the front is giving me the sads. And I agree she needed earrings, preferably in a color. Sorry, Lo. Papa Tom is on it. OUT.

  • aristida_girl

    I’m with daddy Lo, she looks great! classic and fresh and pretty…

  • DominoEstella

    NO.  This is NOT her dress.

  • Jennifer Coleman

    Overwrought, yet unfinished. Out!

  • tvmovielover

    OUT. It is really blah!

  • Cat_In_A_Hat

    Totally on Team Tom for this one.

  • OUT!  My first reaction was, what’s with the icky bodice.  The back is gorgeous.  The front is hiddy.

  • RobertBestBarbie

    I’m with Tom.  She looks limp and dull and colorless.

  • Cheryl Kohs

    Anyone who has breasts that stand up that well on their own deserves praise and adoration.

  • This is making me cry. Good thing she’s wearing a gigantic, sad hankie for my nose blowing needs. OUT.
