Oscars 2013: Anne Hathaway in Prada
Kittens, we’ve got a LOT of ground to cover today and we’ve only slept a few hours after spending 6 hours live-tweeting that long, boring mess. So expect a lot of crankiness today! Yay!
Hit it, Anne.
Anne Hathaway attends the 2013 Academy Awards in a Prada gown paired with Tiffany & Co. jewelry.
Frankly, we think she dropped the ball at the last minute. From the second Les Miz opened, and continuing all the way through awards season, she’s been sporting one highly discussable look after another. So what does she do for the big moment? She balks and goes the Gwyneth Paltrow route. The criticisms that she was trying too hard must have really stung.
We don’t much like this dress. The pale pink doesn’t photograph well, it’s too satin-y and a little wrinkled, we don’t like that large waist panel, and we don’t like the neckline and how it interacts with that necklace. Then there are, of course, Anne Hathaway’s Imaginary Nipples. It actually took us a few seconds of staring at her chest (something that doesn’t always come naturally to us) to determine whether we were looking at Anne’s nipples or we were looking at some aggressively ill-placed darts. Even now, in the full light of morning, we’re not entirely sure how much of that is dart and how much is nip. Either way, she should’ve rejected this dress for that reason alone because the second she stepped on the red carpet, twitter lit up with “Anne Hathaway’s nipples” responses.
Then again, maybe she knew exactly what she was doing.
