IN or OUT: Anne Hathaway in Theykens’ Theory

Posted on February 22, 2013

Looks like “granny chic” has finally made its way to the red carpet:


Anne Hathaway attends Vanity Fair And The Chrysler Celebration of ‘Les Misérables’ in Los Angeles in a Theyskens’ Theory knit dress paired with her own coat and a Dana Rebecca cuff.

Theysken’s Theory Spring 2013 Collection/Model: Sabina Smutna

Jill Milan Clutch

Giuseppe Zanotti Crystal T-strap Sandal

Also: Anne has officially run out of outfits before the Oscars.

We fear we’re not going to get much support on this, but we actually kinda dig the look. It has a funky, vintage store vibe to it. And besides, we’re always telling ladystars that it’s okay to wear pants and jackets on the RC, especially when it’s chilly. Yes, that jacket looks distinctly old lady, but not when you pair it with a tiny mini-dress and a killer pair of sandals. We think she youthened it just enough. We like-not-love it, mainly for being just a little different and quirky at a time when most actresses in her position would be going the Kate Winslet/Natalie Portman Oscar-grab route of polyurethaned perfection.

But yeah, it does kind of feel like this was all she had left hanging in her closet.

IN! Funky/cute!


OUT! Fugly/cheap!




Jennifer Lawrence’s “pile o’ laundry” dress was not well-received by the Minions with Opinions, who voted it OUT.

  • Vera L-

    hate the sleeves. If you need a fur coat, it should reach your wrists. 

    • miagain

      most fur jackets have “bracelet” length sleeves…. which I love… to each his own!!

    •  Yes, something about all the lengths (skirt hem/dress sleeve/jacket sleeve) plus wanky bracelets just kept distracting my eye from the pretty upper half. The shoes are so bare they need a prettier big toe, in my opinion.  Also, I personally Hate her hair here and it doesn’t flatter the proportions of her face.

      • Her bangs look a little wonky. They should be smoothed into the rest of her hair. I’m picking nits, though.

        I like this look. It’s not perfect; I agree with you about the shoes. But, as TLo said, it’s kind of funky and odd, in a good way. Also, she looks ten times better in that dress than the model does. The model looks like she’s being swallowed whole.

        I give Anne an IN.

        • ballerinawithagun

          You are both correct on the hair. This is way too boyish looking. I like the Liza look she had bee wearing.

    • This length is typical for vintage jackets… b/c they’re supposed to be worn with long gloves.

  • lexilexi

    Hate the coat with the dress.  WOULD have liked the dress.  Don’t like her hair like that… OUT

    • Meg0GayGuys6

      I completely agree. Those two pieces might be great separately, but I can’t get behind them together.  OUT

  • I’ve been calling my style granny chic for YEARS. IN, DARLING. 

    • bristlesage

       I have a friend who calls her style “glam-ma”. 

  • IN!

  • BayTampaBay

    I like the shoes but not with that outfit.  I would have gone with booties.

    •  Exactly what I was going to say!

    • Sobaika

      Agreed. I would even go as far as to say I like the shoes, the dress, and the jacket – just not paired together.

    • Aly Marti

      Exactly! They look like prom shoes. Killer booties would have definitely made this look, and would have worked well with the mod-grandma vibe.

    • Jennifer Doyle

      I had the same thought! She needs a closed toe shoe with that ensemble.

    • barbarienne

       The shoes with the dress alone look good to me (see the “lower half only” shot, where the jacket is cropped out). But you’re completely right that they aren’t substantial enough to balance the visual weight of the jacket.

  • VanessaDK

    I wonder if it has some sentimental meaning to her or is a “good luck charm” and she doesn’t care if she ends up looking less put together than other times.

    ETA: Or she just likes it for irrational reasons that don’t have to be explained.

  • OUT. The dress is fierce. Too bad she covered it up with that thing.

  • gabbilevy

    Oh boy. It looks like those ugly bejeweled t-strap sandals are back in, and no one wins. They will never *not* be tacky.

  • 3boysful

    Adorable.  A refreshing change from “trying real hard.”

    • Exactly.  I think this is a great launching point for that uber-fantastic Oscar dress that she should be wearing.  IN!  Love this!

  • lehen

    out.  the two pieces do not belong together.  also, my granny would never wear that!

  • I see all the kids in those fuggly faughfur jackets these days.

  • IN! Super cute and quite attainable-looking, something not often found on red carpets. 

  • MissFern

    I actually like it!  But I wish she had gone with some cute booties instead of open toed sandals.  Then the coat makes more sense.

  • RzYoung

    I love this! Reminds me of Goop in the royal tenenbaums

  • Stubenville

    Where did she get my Aunt Eileen’s jacket?

    • Kayceed

      Are we sure it’s not Alaska’s?

    • mike__tv

      From her cold dead corpse.

  • formerlyAnon

    In. But it started as an out, till I saw the well lit side view and I fell into my thrift store lust for the texture of the jacket.
    So I’m reverting to the logic I once used on my own wardrobe: If I loved the piece enough and it was funky and fun, I wore it no matter what it looked like on me. Long since abandoned since I am no longer young and super skinny and need my clothes to be on my side.

    I think funkier shoes might have improved the look, or really high-end-looking high heeled booties.

    • Sometimes I think we share a brain. It started as an out for me too.

      I too used to wear fun, funky clothes even when they were questionable. /sighs/ I miss those days when I could pull something like that off.

  • Ok, I love everything about the dress except the sleeves. I hate the sleeves. So I support the wearing of a jacket… but maybe not THAT jacket? Almost that jacket, though — that jacket if it was in a different color and had proper sleeves to truly mitigate the awful sleeve problem of the dress. 

    So… Iut? 

  • Trisha26

    OUT. If it’s real fur it’s def an out. If it’s faux fur it should be burned. But either way  – OUT.

  • Stubenville

    If it’s cold enough for a fur jacket, it’s too cold for sandals, honey. Or a mesh mini.

  • In by a slight fraction for the funky vintage.

  • savicevic


  • Every single proportional element is wrong here.  And the colors are drab and color sapping on top of it. bleah.  OUT.

    • SugarSnap108

       You know, I’m usually the first to complain about drab colors like these – especially on someone with fair skin.  But somehow this ensemble doesn’t bother me … Maybe there’s just enough skin and sparkle to jazz it up?  Or maybe I’m just feeling jolly because it’s Friday.

  • ojosazules


  • She doesn’t have the curves for such a bulky jacket. I say out..

  • Call me Bee

    I would like this so much better if she were wearing some sturdier shoes.  The dress and shoes are going-out-to-the-club cute, but the jacket looks like such an afterthought.  Don’t get me wrong,  I love the jacket, but not here.  OUT. 

  • teensmom99

    IN, and not just because my mother and grandmother both had that exact jacket, except one in black, on in brown.  

  • nannypoo

    On one of Fantine’s darkest days I believe a sympathetic, wealthy Parisienne tossed her old motheaten jacket from the carriage as a charitable gesture. We should applaud Anne for recycling it here.

    • Kayceed

      Brava, darling!

  • kim flodin

    I vote in.  I think it’s adorable.

  • Tatiana Luján

    If you need a fur jacket, you shouldn’t wear sandals.
    But I love the dress and the sandals.

  • SugarSnap108

    Well, I support you – IN.  She looks cute and funky and happy, and the shoes and accessories balance the potential dowdiness of the jacket.  I have no idea what a VF/Chrysler “celebration” of Les Mis could be, but it doesn’t sound like something that’s gown-worthy.  

    • random_poster

      IN! What SugarSnap08 said.

  • I like it.  I know most people are over her, but she doesn’t bug me.  Yet.  

  • LongTall_Sally

    Even though I have *so* many quibbles, it somehow works on her.  IN because vintage funkiness is refreshing, both on her and on the red carpet.

  • Annabelle Archer

    OUT.  I have nothing against granny chic or funky cute, it’s the opposing lengths that’s making me twitchy and the hair is not helping. 

  • MilaXX

    OUT! I don’t hate the jacket, I just hate it paired with this nothing of a dress. The dress itself looks like a mens t-shirt and the whiteness of the shirt against that off white jacket, makes it look old and dingy like she found it up in grannys’ attic. I can practically smell the moth balls from here. I do think the jacket could work paired with skinny jeans and a cute top that pulls in the colors of the jacket, but I hate this look from head to toe.

  • I bet the red head (im guessing its Isla Fisher) listening to Anne gab non stop; is thinking to herself. “I fucking hate you stupid bitch, hope you trip and do a face plant this Sunday while walking the Oscars red carpet”

    • eowyn_of_rohan

      That’s quite the projection.

  • Cute from the ankle up. It’s weird to have on a coat, but then lightweight summery sandals. Maybe closed-toe shoes would have been better with this.

    Still, a tentative IN from me. 

  • afabulous50

    OUT – Sorry Anne…no reflection on how I feel about you dear…

  • unbornfawn

    I like the pieces. I don’t like them together. I think she looks better with her bangs covering her forehead and flying a little freer. OUT.

  • BrooklynBomber

    “Anne has officially run out of outfits before the Oscars.”
    Yikes. Actually, the dress is kind of cool, and I love the bag. Shoes are ridic, but it’s the jacket that’s the real problem. Looks mothy and too big. If you gave her a funkier shoe and took the jacket away it’d be a clear in. As it is, it’s neither.

  • KML


  • tired_mommy

    In.  She probably grabbed the jacket last minute to avoid baring her nipples like the model.

    Side note: wonder if Anne is a close-talker? The girl with the red hair is really leaning back.

    • alyce1213

      It looks like she’s talking to Isla Fisher, but I’m not sure.

      • Sara LaBatt

        I thought maybe it was Connie Britton.  As soon as I saw the pic I thought of the conversation, something like Anne Hathaway talking about herself and red dress thinking “look interested look interested cock head look interested”

  • Vlasta Bubinka

    V for vagina
    Disco dress points the way
    Bed jacket realness

  • MoHub

    My grandmother had that jacket in the ’50s—and not when she was young; she was already a septuaagenarian grandmother at the time.

  • jamiewrites


  • harlowish

    I actually kind of like it, but I would like it a lot more if either the dress or coat had been a different color.  So I’m going to have to go with OUT.

  • Indigo54

    OUT!  I can get with the dress but that jacket WITH the dress just ain’t working.  I’m tired of her anyway.

  • jilly_d

    I wish there had been some color somewhere, but i like it well enough. IN.

  • I love it. IN.

  • Lilak

    OK, we’ve got a brief, air-conditioned dress and virtually bare feet … naturally this requires a fur jacket.  Miss Hathaway’s got the L.A. Way down to a T.

    Thus:  IN in L.A. — OUT anywhere else in the known world.  

  • tereliz

    IN! The dress is just fun enough to make the jacket look funky (as opposed to only smelling funky). The clutch could have been more fun, though, maybe a patterned gold deco-by-way-of-disco minaudiere. I really don’t like that one for some reason. 

  • Christy Cricow

    In. Cute. Sassy.

  • Dot

    Colors are a bit drab, but I wouldn’t say I hate it. She looks funky/eclectic, but still polished. Meh…in.

    (Well, from Harold and Maude, not the other one. But whatever). 
    Out, much as it pains me. I love her (hair-buddies!) but that jacket is fug. 

    • alyce1213

      Harold & Maude — you nailed it.

  • Yuval Dinoor

    I like this. It’s desperately screaming for a pop of color and the fabric that dress is made of keeps reminding me of sweaty jerseys but I appreciate the vintagey take and ADORE those shoes. IN

  • DinaSews

    OUT.  Cuter hair and different shoes would have pushed this the other way.  That hairstyle looks like a boy’s haircut from the 1970’s.


    Love it!  IN!  That is a very cute dress and I love this retro fur jacket, very cool.  It has a “not trying so hard to be regal” vibe that works for her here.  The length of the sleeve is good in my eye because it keeps things from being too heavy.  Love it!!

  • Elisha Kari

    In. It’s different and interesting. I don’t like the sleeves on the dress, but do like what the coat does for it. If she has to pole dance, I feel like this is actually a classier way to do it.

  • crash1212

    IN. I wish she’d been a little more edgy with the hair though, that would’ve made it perfect. 

  • MalCo09

    I like-not-love it, too! IN

  • I absolutely love it! I would wear it in a heartbeat (save for the sandals), though I would also wear massive earrings or a large brooch.

  • Roosevelt 85

    With literally THOUSANDS of clothes every year during fashions weeks to choose from, how can celebrities ever “run out” of clothes and pick these crappy ones? 

    Also, Zoe has really been disappointing with Lawrence and Hathaway!

  • mhleta

    OUT. This jacket and this dress are not friends. It looks like Twiggy raided Jackie Kennedy’s closet. I really like them separately, But together the proportions don’t work. It’s all very choppy. A little swing coat would have been adorable with this dress, though. Pair this jacket with a pencil skirt or a skinny jeans and I’m in. 

    • alyce1213

      I don’t think Jackie K. would ever wear that jacket.  It’s more for her predecessor, Mamie.

      • mhleta

        You know, I was  this [] close to saying Mamie instead of Jackie. I think you’re right. 

  • SewingSiren

    I would say it’s a combo platter. Fugly/cute. Okay for a high schooler venturing into edgy, by way of grandmothers steamer trunk, but a little sad for a star of her magnitude with every designer gown at her fingertips, or those of her stylist.
    Tip: the jacket wants gloves, and the sandals want Spring.

  • call_me_schmeg

    this is totally something i would wear. judge me, i have no shame! IN.

  • harleydear

    In. I think it’s fun and different. Imperfect, yes, but I like combinations that make me tilt my head and go “Hmmm. Yeah. Maybe. Yeah. I can get with that.”

  • SoThenISaid

    LOVE IT. Monotone, textured, mix and match, funky glam. IN.

  • Judy_J

    I think I would like this better if she’d gone with more substantial footwear.  The jacket says winter and those sandals scream summer. I’ll still give it an IN because I like the funky vintage vibe.

  • Judy_S

    IN, for wearing her own coat. 

  • alyce1213

    OUT. I live and breathe vintage and vintage-inspired, but I’ve always loathed the silhouette of this jacket, even the first time it came around.  
    It’s all Mamie Eisenhower, no thank you, and flattering to no one.
    She forgot pants.  Her shoes are for the garbage.  And the front of her hair looks weird.

  • decormaven

    Out. The chunky jacket calls for a more defined shoe. And something about how the bangs are styled and the brows are accented are giving me eye twitch.

  • I think this is really cute. In!

  • Janet B

    I like all of the pieces, but I’m not sure that they all play well together. Out.

  • Snailstsichr

    out. none of it goes together.

  • OUT. Ugly and cheap is dead on.  The texture combination is just a mess as well. But can we see what Isla Fisher is wearing? Please? I love her so. 

  • conniemd

    In. But then I’m a fan of shopping at vintage shops, consignment stores and flea markets (not to mention e-bay).

  • Jangle57

    Don’t like the sleeve lengths; maybe if the dress sleeves had been longer or even shorter than the jacket’s….  Love the shoes but not with this outfit.  Hate her hair which is disappointing as she’s been wearing it so cute lately.  Appreciate the effort to march to a different drummer but OUT

  • I don’t know why she always wears dresses that are so short.  Leave a LITTLE something to the imagination!

  • OUT. I like the jacket, but the dress looks like it’s made from one of those nonskid pads you put under your rugs.

    • AthenaJ

      I immediately thought the same thing about the dress!

  • prettybigkitty

    Was prepared to vote out, just because I’m kinda tired of her.  But kinda dig the look. too.  I’d wear it.  IN

  • It’s cute and doesn’t offend me. In.

  • kolokOlchik

    I’m going with funky-cute reluctant in

  • ThaliaMenninger

    In. I’m also tired of her Miserable face, but the outfit is kinda wonderful.

  • kategs

    I really like this look!  It’s pulled together and chic.  IN.

  • Sarah Aronson

    IN! I like it. I’d wear it. Like the sleeve length a lot. 

  • stubbornthoughts

    It does smell a bit like an afterthought outfit, but I still totally dig her in this. 

    And by the by, I’m not tired of Anne at all. This is her moment to shine – she’s (most likely) about to win a fucking OSCAR – and I’m absolutely thrilled for her. She always looks genuinely happy, as if she’d talk to anyone no matter who they are, and I love that.

    YOU GO ANNIE!!! I’m rooting for you, Princess Mia of Genovia.

    • formerlyAnon

      It’s strange, I’m liking her more now than I ever have, but I can’t root for her for the Oscar. And I find myself feeling a little guilty, like when your best friend at work is up for a job you know they really want, and you don’t think they’d be the best choice.

      (I think she worked wonderfully hard for her performance and did a good job, but the work showed. There were so many moments for me when it was not just the character, but Ann Hathaway working hard to get the character right, up on screen.)

  • Dhammadina

    Funky good, as you say. From grandma’s closet to hers. In.

  • msdamselfly

    IN  Love the recycled vintage look

  • I LOVE this look! I think it’s totally chic and sexy without trying too hard. IN!!

  • mjude

    IN.  love the vintage feel

  • AuntieAnonny


  • Love Annie, but that jacket is simply appalling.  Ugly color, terrible silhouette.  Out as out can be.

  • IN.  I love every bit.

  • In.

  • butterflysunita

    No, no, no. OUT.  Dress with sandals is a cute, if not overly original look.  Coat with the dress and sandals is very original–in a bad way.  I am used to celebrities being seasonally inappropriate, but at least stick with one season.  

  • Oh I like this SO much!! I love the 3/4 sleeve on the fur coat. A great look.

  • Marian Humin

    Handi-wipe dress, my mother’s coat.

  • leftcoastpickle

    IN because I love the shoes so much, they make me nostalgic for my mom’s closet. I love the jacket, but that dress is garbage. And yet, she is in because of the power of those shoes…

  • I do wish that the sleeves of the jacket and the sleeves of the dress weren’t at competing lengths.  Those sandals are eye-catching but very, very, perilously close to stripper tacky.  None of these items should go together, yet oddly, they add up to a look that works–at least for Miss Annie–so I vote IN.

    And on a side note, while I’m dying to see what she [Miss Annie] wears to the Oscars, I’m pulling for Amy Adams to win Supporting Actress.

    • PeaceBang

      I’m pulling for Amy Adams or Helen Hunt. Anyone but The Hathaway, actually. I’m calling her Anne Go-Away now.

  • Hell Yes, I Would!

    In. I don’t even feel the need to justify it. I love the look.

    (ok – I don’t love the shoes – but I don’t hate them with this enough to change my mind. Still a total IN!)

  • erinbinek

    Yuck.  That is all.

  • AgingWell

    In. Not the the most flattering picture of her, though. One of those times she’s channeling Liza. 

  • IMNAngryLiberal

    IN, I don’t love the shape of the jacket, but I applaud the idea.  I’ve always thought it was wildly unfair for female stars to be expected to freeze on the red carpet whilst their male counterparts are nice and (relatively) warm in their tux’s.

  • Maya Laukaran

    I too dig this look. IT’s just funky/quirky enough to work. IN.

  • The dress looks as though it’s made of that stuff you line the dish cupboard with so your plates don’t slide around.


  • mmc2315

    Eh, OUT.

    I’m on board with the granny chic fur jacket, and the shoes are marvelous, but not with that dress.  Close!

  • bertkeeter

    Like dress and jacket proportions. Wish her bangs weren’t quite so solid…like the feathered look more.

  • RedRaven617

    Love the jacket, shoes and clutch. The dress looks like it shrunk. Sleeves and hem too short. It needs a greater contrast with the jacket.

  • Sara Brams-Miller

    LOVE it!!!!

  • SophieCollier

    OUT.  If the jacket had been in a color, ANY color, maybe an in, but the two tones of beige over white, and the sleeve length, are just ugly.  

  • jw_ny


    I don’t like the coat, but I like the idea of it…wearing vintage as well as quirky/unexpected items that accentuate an otherwise simple look…nobody will remember the outfit tho, just the coat.  The dress is afreakindorable on her and I love the shoes…they both contrast so nicely with the coat, and, I’d guess the coat came off during the course of the evening.

  • EEKstl

    OUT.  I actually love the jacket, but not with that dress, the dress is fine, the shoes nice, they’re all nice pieces individually; it’s all just too thrown together, and not in a “oh, this old ensemble?” kind of good way.  

  • JuliaInBlack

    I can’t resist an ‘Atelier Goodwill’ look on the red carpet.  IN

  • Sara__B

    Granny Chic? You are insulting grannies everywhere. Some might wear that coat, but that comb-over? NEVER! OUT!

  • Imasewsure

    Out because it does nothing for her but I do like that she wore her own coat (which might have been cute with a different outfit)

  • mommyca

    I give her an IN… cute and fun

  • Joyce VG

    It’s nice. IN. 

  • I love that granny coat. I would wear it with everything. Even my workout clothes. That is all.

  • if it had more color, i’d say it’s in.

  • altalinda

    In.  She’s making it look young and funky.

  • CatherineRhodes


  • littlemac8

    Youthened?????  Ha Ha Ha

    • mhleta

      Of course the correct term is “Youthenized.” 😉

  • Aly Light

    In-ish, I guess.

  • PeaceBang

    OUT. The sandals ruined any chances it had of being youthful and funky. 

  • OUT. Sorry, the fur looks like something that Mamie Van Doren might have worn during her heyday. The dress by itself would have been cute.

  • Alyssa

    Out. I don’t think the color of the jacket plays well with the dress. I love the sandals though.

  • so, I totally love this.  IN

  • lalahartma


  • Ruth Gordon dressed like this in the 60’s. “Lord Love a Duck”, “Rosemary’s Baby”. But cleaner.

    That jacket is nasty in a way beyond fashion. Grimy, ugly and btw, not everything we did in the past is cute. This jacket is to animals what lawn jockeys are to POC. Let’s leave the worst of us in the past. 

    All she needs is a slowly spreading menstrual stain on the back of her skirt.

  • sweetlilvoice

    It would like a bit more youthful is the jacket was a different color–pink, blue, black. Overall, in. 

  • Coco Cornejo

    OUT! The individual pieces are each nice enough, but when put together they make my eyes hurt. 

    BTW, wearing a jacket when it’s cold out really doesn’t help keep you warm when the rest of your outfit is a mini and sandals. So I’m not buying the TLo logic in this case.

  • CeeQ

    I’m loving it! Initially when I just focused on the coat, it wasn’t rocking my boat. But you’re right, paired with the mini dress and fab sandals – it all just works! Is her hair getting shorter? 


  • Somebody forgot to give her husband back his henley. OUT!

  • RebeccaKW

    In.  I do really like this.  But I really don’t like those sandals.

  • Can’t stand the shoes at all, but especially not for this outfit. It’s cold right now in LA! Also, fur coat up top? OUT.

  • alaskahyoung

    Ugh. Out.

  • Nariya


  • snarkykitten

    That dress looks like it was made out of a hamper. O-U-T

  • MarissaLG

    I think it’s really cute. It works with her hair, and is finally something appropriate for February! IN.

  • j_anson

    Ugh, no, Anne. OUT. With that hair, especially; the outfit was already bad and the hair takes it to an even worse place.

  • Lizzyisi

     I love the outfit, but it doesn’t seem to go with the personality she projects. So, I have to give it an out.

  • chitowndg

    In – funky vintage cute.

  • Monday1900

    Out!  The netting dress is bad and the bolero looks like she snagged it at Goodwill.  Not good.

  • I like it for being different and quirky.  IN!

  • newtonGOTbeaned

    I like this a lot, but one of my favorite movies is Almost Famous. I’m OK with being biased. IN.

  • ankali

    IN! Love the vintage coat!

  • Out.

    I’ll wear your granddads clothes…

  • stagmania

    IN. Somehow it comes together as “cute”.

  • CheriCPat

    Totally IN, but would be even in-ner with a big funky necklace.

  • That jacket is totally fabulous and I’d wear it in a minute. 

  • Out! I like the dress. I’m ok with the jacket as a piece, but put it together and she looks like something out of a Fun House mirror with some beginner level Photoshop weirdness thrown in to boot. Scroll back up to the full-length shot. Those proportions are CRAZY!

  • Louise Bryan

    It looks kinda thrown together, not put together.  J’adore Mme Shulman, but it’s only her personality holding the getup together.  OUT.

  • jmorino08

    IN!!! I love everything about this!!

  • I think it’s a canny move to dress not-so-well right before the Oscars.  It can only make her Oscar gown look even more fabulous by comparison.  As for this dress, I think I have that material (or something like it) on the glass shelves in my kitchen cabinets to keep breakables safe.  It’s okay but drab, drab colors….

  • AwwwTrouble

    Like. In. 

  • oohsparkley!

    In. She’s covering up the hideous sleeves of the dress.

  • MzzPants

     Compared to the fashion ‘age’ of, say, the Ohlsen twins, this is positively juvenile.  The whole ensemble looks cute and retro to me.  IN.

  • maybe there some horrible ‘mad-dash’ (like in some whacky 50s hotel comedy) mixup with her luggage (ono! she got the jewels and the rich dowagers undergarments!) so all her assistants had to work with was what has hanging in the ski lodge cloak room (and here it is June!) and….screw it. out. hon, thank got the Oscars are Sunday night, you are running out of sympathy points…(she was Ella Enchanted for gods sakes!)

  • Adriana_Paula

    I’m going with funky/cute.  I love a bracelet sleeve.

    Wrong coat for the dress and I’m too cranky to explain it. And I hate her do. Out. But I adore that little clutch!

  • Susan Collier

    What’s with the major middle-aged man combover hairdo?

  • Caitlin_G

    I don’t love the way the sleeves line up but all in all ‘in’ its a more casual carpet so why wear a ball gown. Interested to see what’s left to wear Sunday!

  • n a

    I hate the heavy on top/naked feet combo. Bare legs and feet just look weird with a fur coat. OUT!

  • marigi


  • I did not like it until I read that she put it together herself. It looks like my daughter put it together from a vintage store and it is sort of cute. But I do think it is too short…”too much tooti”…..

  • Anniebet

    Out. I don’t think she “youthened” it enough. Hate boxy jackets. And FFS, did she have her hair cut even shorter? Gah. Oh, and now I’ll be watching for her big toes to see if they always look that weird.

  • Zippypie

    OUT. Not because I don’t like the vintage coat.  That’s the best part of the outfit.  The dress is incredibly ugly.  It looks like a lingerie laundry bag.  And Annie here committed a fashion faux pas with a 3/4 sleeve vintage jacket – don’t wear longer sleeves under it!  It looks stupid. 

    It also looks silly to have all that bare leg and sandal with a fur collar.

  • DarkWillow

    It’s not perfect or anything, but it’s an IN for me.

  • barbarienne

    The reason it looks “granny chic” is because every woman old enough to be my grandmother had that jacket when she was 50 or 60. (I should note that if my grandmothers were still alive, they would be be 113 and 110 years old.)

    I applaud the vintage concept, but I don’t think it works with the dress. Perhaps because the jacket might be a trifle big on her, or perhaps because there isn’t enough color contrast for my liking. Or perhaps because the dress isn’t rocking my world, either.

    Or maybe because the jacket is missing the gaudy rhinestone starburst pin on the lapel. Every one of my grand-aunts had one of those for their jackets like this.

    The shoes are awesome. They go with that dress much better than the ones on the model.

    I grade on a curve, and Anne has been rocking the shit out of her appearances. This isn’t objectionable, but it doesn’t look as if she put much thought into it beyond, “Okay, it’ll do.” A lowercase out from me.

    If its cold enough for a coat then its too cold for open toed sandals. 

  • Verascity

     I think this is fine. It’s cute. IN.

  • trisker

    I am crazy about her wearing her great-grandmother’s jacket on the RC!  IN for me.

  • fringebenefit

    IN. No doubt about it.

  • carolie_king

    The HAIR. YUCK.  She looks like a Ken doll.  Neck down, IN.

  • another_laura

    Almost, but no.  Out.  You haven’t won yet, sweetie.

  • Pterodactyl111

    Out. The shape of that jacket is atrocious. It looks like a dead lion.

  • I think it’s unusual and chic. In!

  • demidaemon

    I don’t know. I don’t hate it. But I am not much in love with it either. I understand the coat, but I think it just throws off the proportions of everything. OUT, for bad coat choice, I guess. She needed something a little closer to the body, in my opinion.

  • libraangel

    How many Chihuahuas were killed for that coat? Really, this coat looks like something I found in the basement when we were cleaning out my Grandma’s house. And rest? Salvation Army chic

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    Just no.  When you’ve made a tall drink of water like our Annie look boxy and blocky, you’ve gone wrong.

  • OUT!  She took such a funky little dress and ruined it.  Almost any other jacket would have been better.

  • Tom Shea

    IN. Barely. And look how awesome Connie Britton looks in  the third photo!

  • LaSylphide

    All the proportions seem wrong, somehow.  Love the jacket/bag/shoes, but the dress looks like my bathtub mat.  A reluctant out.

  • pookiesmom

    I actually love this. IN.

  • Mazenderan

    Yeuch, I hate the imbalance of the fur jacket with strappy sandals. I have stress dreams where my shoes and outfits are unbalanced like this

  • Cute enough. In. 

  • ballerinawithagun

    In! I love this and for some reason she doesn’t look as pasty white as usual. Is that Isla, the most fabulous redhead she is talking to?

  • MaryAtRealityTea

    Well… I have a lot of comments. 1) this is a very twee look harkening back to the grunge era. I think Michelle Williams could pull it off or Kirsten Dunst but Anne does not have a youthful or fun vibe. She has the type of face that is old beyond it’s years, not like she looks old, but just she’s never been in my mind an ingenue. 

    Secondly, I just don’t like the way the color of the coat clashes so visibly with the dress. My main complaint is just that Anne has been trying too hard to be someone she’s not lately and this look demonstrates it all too well. 

    So, with all that said OUT. 

  • guest2visits

    Finally – she has found two items I dislike, alot.   It doesn’t look vintage-y as much as it looks goofy.  Love the shoes.

  • lundibleu

    In, though only just. She looks comfortable. I do, however, love the look she’s getting off Isla Fisher (or at least I think it’s her).

  • Kind of endearingly awkward, IN-ish? I keep wanting to push the sleeves up, though.

  • aquamarine17

    i don’t like the look in general and agree about the shoes, and think that one thing that might help meld the dress with the jacket is if the dress had a lower neckline. I think her short hair isn’t doing anything for her. It might have even looked better with a middle part and a lot of gel to keep it to the sides. i like the model’s hair, actually and it is not long hair.

  • maggiemaybe

    I like it. Funky grannies are totally cool.

  • GTrain


  • OUT! Anne Hathaway, where are your pants?

  • lrhoff

    I like it.  I think she felt like she just wanted to be more herself instead of pole dancing.  Good for her.

  • Kathleen B

    IN. it totally works.

  • Beardslee


  • TropiCarla

    IN from me.  
    Loved everything about the dress except the upper sleeves. So granny’s fur coat did more than just keeping her warm. I agree about the closed-toe shoe.

  • ccm800

    IN! I love it and I love the where the sleeves fall on her and each other in a dress this length. 

  • neofashionista


  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    OUT.  No sandals with coat because you are cold.  Make a seasonally consistent decision.  OUT and I am sad to say it because I love her.
