Anne Hathaway in head-to-toe Tom Ford at the ‘Les Mis’ premiere: tragic or sultry?

OH DEAR LORD. These are pics from last night’s Les Miserables premiere in NYC. This post is just for “the ladies of Les Mis” in case you’re like “OMG where is Hugh Jackman?!” Because CB is already talking about him, and we need to just talk about fashion and how these ladies are presenting themselves and how it’s just so, so terrible. Let’s start with Anne Hathaway, who is pretty much guaranteed an Oscar nomination this year, and from the looks of it so far, she’s in it to win it. Is this the right way for an Oscar hopeful to present herself?!!?!?

Annie is wearing head-to-toe Tom Ford. The dress is Ford, the boot things (?) are Ford as well. At first glance, I liked the dress by itself, but as I examined it closely… no. No, I don’t care for it. The silhouette is good, but the cut is too narrow along the thighs and Anne looks like she might be having walking issues. Plus, there’s the matter of the giant slit (to show off those horrible boots) and the built-in thing on the back. I’m sorry, Tom Ford. This is a FAIL. Also: I dislike Anne’s makeup so much here. It’s too strong.

But is Anne’s look worse than Amanda Seyfried’s? The truth is, I don’t hate Amanda’s Alexander McQueen dress. It’s fine. It’s nothing special, but it’s okay. But does her makeup artist hate her? And does her hair person despise her? What has she done to piss off her style team? I think Amanda is very pretty, but the makeup and the hairstyle emphasizes the wrong stuff about her “look”.

And here’s Samantha Barks in Stella McCartney. A rare victory for Stella, I think, mainly because she just copied a years-old Ralph Lauren design.

    Anne’s boots look like scary medical devices – braces for wrecked knees.

  2. andy says:

    That outfit is hideous. Anne refuses to accept she has zero sex appeal.

    Keep horrifying us, Annie.

  3. Emma says:

    her feer are all red and sore looking

  4. marie says:

    no, no, no.. Anne annoys me, I like the boots better than the dress, but that isn’t saying much..

    Amanda’s makeup looks like stage makeup maybe? her look reminds me of a ballerina..

    The only one who looks good is Barks, as I sadi before-she has a beautiful smile.

  5. serena says:

    I can’t take Anne anymore.. and what the heck are those boots?

  6. Amelia says:

    The more I see of Anne Hathaway, the more I hope she loses.
    I’m hoping for someone like Judi Dench to sneak into the Best Supporting category and show her how it’s done.
    Is Amanda moving to Switzerland to look after a herd of yaks? What’s with the Heidi hair?
    Sam looks gorgeous, I think she’s going to be the dark horse of the cast. So pleased she got cast as Eponine.

  7. Apples says:

    Yikes on the Tom Ford. No judgement on Anne, nobody could pull-off those boots; I feel like their design lacks… balance?

  8. Katyusha says:

    I think Amanda looks amazing.

  9. lily says:

    What’s wrong with Hathaway’s style these days??? The dress looks okay, although taffeta is not my cup of tea. But those shoes and that thing wrapped around her calves are just plain hideous. They look like something Sandra Bullock would wear for Miss Congeniality.
    Amanda’s hair seems a bit too tight. I got headache just for looking at it, but her dress is beautiful. Sam’s dress looks so generic and boring.

  10. Jen says:

    I kind of like Amanda’s hair. Her makeup, though, is heinous.

  11. neelyo says:

    I think Rosanna Arquette wore a leg brace similar to Hathaway’s boots in the movie CRASH (the twisted Cronenberg one, not the ‘we’re all connected despite our differences, now I’m going to hug my maid’ Best Picture winner). Arquette looked better.

  12. Melymori says:

    I thought she had broken her leg or something…. her look is a disaster, from head to toe.

  13. Suze says:

    That Tom Ford ensemble has my hair on end. Ugly doesn’t begin to describe it.

    Speaking of hair – I am a short hair lover but it does not flatter Anne at all. Her features are large, she needs masses of hair to balance them out.

    Her stylists sent Seyfried out with a bad look, for sure. Two toned hair and hideous makeup.

    I hope I like the movie better than the premiere outfits.

  14. judyjudy says:

    The hair on both Anne and Amanda looks amazing.

  15. gogoGorilla says:

    I actually like Anne’s hair and makeup here. She’s petite, so the short ‘do really works for her. I hope she doesn’t do the Hollyweird thing and go for ratty extensions (but of course she will).

    The dress, though? The boots? Good god! Little shop of horrors.

  16. Tifygodess24 says:

    Her dress looks like a bunch of fancy trash bags all put together to make her dress. Especially in the back. And some ripped up ones made her leg cover? Or are they heels? Regardless this comment was sponsored by Hefty sure cinch bags.

  17. Mauibound says:

    I know that the ladies are young and probally want to take fashion risks but take note of Cate Blachett gals! She’s always classy and rarely if ever does it wrong.

  18. Madpoe says:

    LMAO! Anne looks like a gothic super villian with a busted leg!

  19. JenD says:

    Those boots reminded me of Lara Croft a little bit, like there should be knives and a gun or two strapped on them.

  20. bettyrose says:

    There are so many cute things one can do with short hair involving scarves, stylish hair clips . . . but distracting people with that dress isn’t working.

  21. emmie_a says:

    Anne is always a ‘NO’ with me. Her makeup highlights her bold features which is usually ok but Anne’s doesn’t have enough face area for both large eyes and large lips.

    Amanda is gorgeous but her hair and makeup are awful.

  22. kate says:

    I seriously thought those “boots” were a knee brace.

    Love the make up and the dress. the boots are TERRIBLE

    Amanda Seyfried is a no from the neck up. and the neck down YES

    The stella dress is totally a RL copycat or CK or someone….its been done about 5 times at least.
    Although, Flattering on the actress.

  23. Miss M says:

    Anne gave me the Leah Michelle vibe= try- hard

  24. ladybert62 says:

    All of those outfits are horrible – anne’s is especially bad.

    I am tired of hearing about this movie – I am tired of hearing about her wanting that oscar.

    I will be surprised if she wins – its a try too hard and desperate tactics from her.

  25. Jenna says:

    I don’t know what she’s trying to do but…no. Just N.O.

  26. lucy2 says:

    Samantha looks great.

    Anne’s dress and contraption are awful. I’m guessing she wants to be more edgy, but she should go back to a more classic style, it suited her better. Though I don’t think anyone could make that get up work.

  27. cubs says:

    I personally LOVE Hathaway’s look – it’s nice to see a really chic edgy look. But clearly its misunderstood outside fashion circles.

    I will say though, that this look would have been a better fit for The Dark Knight premiere.

  28. L says:

    It’s like she’s had SMUG permanently etched onto her face. Its try hard and annoying.

    The dress is okay (it looks like a trash bag) but the shoes are awful. And the girl is posing like Lea Michele. Yuck.

  29. Elle says:

    The more I see Anne Hathaway’s desperate cries for attention the more I’m hoping that Amy Adams quietly but fiercely moves in and win the Oscar.

  30. Ics says:

    This Ford design is quite similar to an old Versace Atelier. Versace was far better, thou, the color was a light gold and it was classier.

  31. Fred says:

    Spot on about Amanda; looks as if she stuck her head in a wind tunnel. She is very pretty normally, but this is not flattering.

  32. anotherrandom says:

    How is no one talking about Anne’s posing? I can’t stand it! I feel like I’m watching an episode of ANTM and the girls have to do the “high fashion” poses that just look awkward. Why is she doing that on the red carpet? I mean, I know there are photos but this isn’t an editorial spread.

  33. Hubbahun says:

    Dear Anne, give it a freakin’ rest! Seriously, if a mediocre actress like her can win an Oscar then they hold no integrity. Way, way overrated.

  34. Jesse says:

    I guess I’m in the minority. I like Anne Hathaway. She was a child actress that didn’t derail. She’s made good choices in movies and she can act and sing. I love Les Miserables. I’ve read the book, seen it multiple times on Broadway and although I didn’t care for the movie with Liam Neeson I’m excited for this version. Supposedly, based on reviews of people that actually saw the movie she did really well. That’s why she’s most likely going for the Oscar. I just don’t get all the hate. People hate reality stars and they hate actual stars too ???? I guess nothing makes people happy.

  35. Lulu says:

    She looks like she’s getting ready to pull a knife out of that thing. The whole look + the posing? Scary!

  36. skuddles says:

    I’m getting a headache just looking at Amanda’s hair style.

  37. Brandi says:

    I don’t get the boots at all!! But I do think Anne & Amanda are both so beautiful. I’m convinced Amanda Seyfried just wakes up looking effortlessly gorgeous. And I love that Anne hasn’t resorted to obviously fake extensions while growing her hair out.

  38. stephanie says:

    Don’t like ann’s dress and amanda’s makeup is a disaster, but amanda is just sooooo gorgeous. Also, i kind of like her hair. :P

  39. Grace says:

    Samantha looks like Cheno. Why do all these broadway girls look the same? Is it the wide mouth?

  40. smiley says:

    is this the premiere oF L’ES MIRABLES- THE ATTACK OF ALIENS!

  41. Lexi says:

    I haven’t seen any version of Les Mis, nor read the book ~ no plans to either.

    Miss Hathaway works my last nerve. Her get-up is sublimely ridiculous.

    Tom Ford seems like a disturbed individual.

  42. Huh says:

    Anne Hathaway is f’ing insufferable. Her inevitable Oscar win will be notable solely for how mother-romancing ridiculous her speech will be, like Sally Field times Halle Berry with a Gwyneth Paltrow exponent while she pretends she didn’t lobby her starved ass off for MONTHS for the award. I cannot stand her.

  43. Ann says:

    Anne looks like Darth Vader’s prom date here. Very Goth dominatrix. DNL.

    Amanda looks like she got Catherine Zeta Jones’ outfit by mistake. Sorry, but a girl in her mid twenties should not be wearing that gown, it’s much too old for her. She looks like she’s in her 40′s here.

    These girls need some new stylists. Unfortunately, some stylists focus so much on “pushing the envelope”, they forget that they should be making their clients look good.

  44. Unbeweavable says:

    Give it a rest, Anne!

    Also- when did Amanda Seyfried get so thin?? She used to have curves and boobs but now she looks like any other tiny actress.

  45. Reece says:

    She’s into the wings this promo tour isn’t she?

    Amanda’s dress looks like the dress Jessica Chastain wore to the Oscars. I think it was McQueen too?

  46. lilred says:

    Anne looks sublime, love the makeup and the dress (not crazee about the boots).

  47. Ed says:

    I’ve heard this is a great film and top quality entertainment for an evening. I can’t wait to see it.

  48. Loulou says:

    Anne H’s dress is good but the shoes are an unnecessary statement. Amanda S’s makeup I like very much but rather than to put any kind of red tone in the corners of the eyes, I would have opted for teal with a gold overlay. Thats just me. And I love her hair too. The other one with the silver dress, we’ve seen that forever, it’s an old staple already.

  49. Pleasedtomeetya says:

    Hahahaha! She looks like a trash can super hero!

  50. Bugaboo says:

    Hahahaha! She looks like a trash can super hero!

  51. Vanessa says:

    Love Anne’s dress and makeup. I would have liked to have seen the dress with different shoes though. With the short hair this look really makes a statement.

  52. taxi says:

    Banks looks like a lovely woman in a basic dress. Amanda’s hair & eye makeup are too extreme & not becoming. She’s also giving lousy posture, with the hunched back & rounded shoulders.
    AH? As if the bizarre dress & shoe-boots (which don’t fit – toes on the carpet) won’t get her enough attention this week, she flashes the press while getting out of the car? She’s been around for many years & certainly knows how to exit a car so did she do it on purpose?

  53. Lexi says:

    Anne Hathaway can never, ever be sexy. She’s just not the type to pull it off successfully. I cringed in the latest Batman movie because of her. Whenever she tried to be sultry, it was just so awkward.

    I feel bad because she’s never really done anything wrong, you know? But she just bugs the crap out of me.

  54. bns says:

    Anne always looks amazing in red lipstick. I wish I could pull it off.

  55. Ron says:

    AWFUL!! I am all for intersting faship forward couture, but this is quite simply the worst dress of the year.And she also got the polio sanboothell shoe! yeah! Tom Ford should be bitch slapped for this. And she has a beave shot from last night too. Good job Anne. You couldn’t fit a thong under that balloon dress?? If Rachel Zoe is still her stylist, she must secretly hate Anne at this point.

  56. I Choose Me says:

    A festival of fug. I don’t hate Amanda’s (my beautiful alien queen) dress but it’s too damn long and I hate that Vegas girl look of the Stella McCartney. Now to talk about Anne. The dress would have been fine had it not had what looks like a trash bag taped to the back of it and egads the shoes! When I first saw them I thought she’d injured her foot and was wearing a leg brace. Fashion fail all around.

  57. citygirlsf says:

    Love Anne’s dress, make-up, hair.

    The “shoes” must go, however.

    Bad eye look for Amanda. Her eyes are already too wide-set for those crazy wings.

  58. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    Anne looks ridiculous. That is one god awful dress. The back part reminds me of my fitted sheet after I have taken it off the bed, washed it and then hung it up to dry. Ugh.

    And Amanda is a pretty woman, but she looks like an alien there and not in an awesome Swinton way.

  59. Fofototto says:

    She needs to get back together with Rachel Zoe. Or at the very least Brad. She hit it out of the park with her wardrobe during promotion for Get Smart.
    I don’t think she’s strung together a great series of looks since. It usually a hit followed by two or three misses.
    Anne, call Rachel ASAP.

  60. holly hobby says:

    Annie’s dress looks like a Glad garbage bag from the back. I hate her outfit and hair.

    Same goes for Amanda. Her face looks like a deranged swan.

    Only the gal who plays Eponine looks good here.

  61. Steve E says:

    Poor Anne! I had no idea. I thought polio had been wiped out in North America…those horrible leg braces.

  62. dread pirate cuervo says:

    Tragic. She would’ve been better off wearing Tom Ford himself bc he is a hot piece.

  63. Marianne says:

    I don’t get the weird leg garter thing. It would have been much better without it though. Still, she tried something different, and I’ll give her that. Samantha looks WOWZA though.
