This is the second Anne Hathaway Oscar dress in a row that does absolutely nothing for us. This is alarming. Especially since she changed stylists in between the two dresses.
Anne Hathaway attends the 86th Annual Academy Awards held at the Dolby theater in Hollywood, California in a Gucci dress paired with Neil Lane jewelry and a Gucci clutch and heels.
It’s like, after last year’s nipstravaganza, she decided to go full on breastplate in order to avoid the same mistake. And that’s our main problem with this: the bodice is too stiff, heavy, and shapeless. We don’t care what the name is on the label sewed inside, there’s a point at which so much embellishment is forced upon a poor garment that the effect becomes a cheapening of it. To be perfectly, absolutely bitchy about it, this looks like something a D-lister wears from a designer no one heard of. It doesn’t look good enough to be Gucci, in our eyes.
And another thing: we noted that Julia Roberts is one of those people who really rocks a black, but looking at this getup, we’ve come to the conclusion that Anne isn’t. She’s a girl who needs color.
Hair and makeup are very pretty, though. And she gets points for the hooker shoes.
And if you’re loving our Oscars red carpet bitchery, you might consider checking out our new book, darling! “A hilarious critique of celebrity culture,” they called it! We’re proud. And shameless.
