Anne Hathaway in a black Saint Laurent tuxedo at the NBRs: lovely or overworked?

The National Board of Review Awards were held last night in NYC. I tend to think of the NBRs as the most prestigious of all of the critics’ awards, but that might be a dated idea. It was definitely true a decade ago, but since then, various critics’ awards (like the NYFCC and the LA Critics Awards) have vied to become AS important, as much of an Oscar-harbinger as the NBRs. You can see the full list of 2013 NBR winners here. As for Anne Hathaway, she was there because Les Miserables won Best Ensemble. Annie wore Saint Laurent Spring 2013 – a black tuxedo with flamboyant cuffs. I’m fine with the suit – I like when younger girls wear suits to these industry events. My problem is with her hair, which seems to be at a self-imposed awkward phase. At this point, I think Annie is only trimming the back and leaving the front too shaggy. It’s the reverse mullet. PS… I dig her black mani & pedi. It’s matchy-matchy, but it’s cute.

Here’s Emily Blunt in Emilio Pucci – I like this dress on her a lot, and she looks good with John Krasinski. John was probably there because he co-wrote Promised Land, which picked up a “Freedom of Expression” Award.

Amanda Seyfried (also there for Best Ensemble) in Bottega Veneta. It’s an okay dress, but it kind of washes her out, which is very easy to do considering her coloring. Why doesn’t she stick to darker colors? I don’t get it.

Jessica Chastain won Best Actress for Zero Dark Thirty. She wore Alexander McQueen and she made McQueen looks boring. Ugh, Jessica. Let me style you! I will have you looking like a ginger goddess in no time! You should be aiming for Rita Hayworth, not Duchess Kate.

    Ugh, the side sweep.
    That used to be really in fashion with the idiot tweeners over here for a while. I blame Bieber.
    Hell, I blame Bieber for everything.
    I like the suit, it’s always nice to see a woman elegantly rock a pant suit, although the giant bow is a bit lost on me.
    Final note; I hope Judi Dench kicks Anne’s arse at the BAFTAS.

  2. says:

    Love Anne’s outfit (cuffs are meh though) and her makeup (her features are under control!) but I hate the hair.

  3. judyjudy says:

    I think they all look incredible.

  4. lilred1 says:

    I like the Tuxedo it fits her beautifully the top has got to go.

  5. T.C. says:

    Anne Hathaway looks the best. Her outfit, hair and makeup all perfect. The next best dressed is Jessica Chastain but horrid hair and makeup. Do not like Emily Blunt’s or Amanda Seyfried’s dresses. Amanda is completely washed out looking.

  6. BabySwans says:

    I had a pixie for a few years. When I decided to grow it out, it took 2 yrs of awkward haircuts. Unfortunately all you can do for a while is keep cutting the back while the top grows or you end up with a mullet (way worse in my opinion).

    • heatheradair says:

      Ditto. Went through that phase, too. But actually — I’ve always thought pixie cuts (or, short do’s at all) feel more feminine with something around the face. Something you can almost tuck behind your ear still gives the face-framing factor of hair around your forehead and cheekbones, without feeling too military.

      The trouble I had when mine grew out was that I looked very……Mary Lou Retton? Or sort of “middle-aged news-caster from the 80′s?” 80′s gymnast hair.

      The grow-out phase(s) = a bitch…..

    • MSL says:

      Same with me! I’m currently in the awkward grow out phase and I hate it! It’s not one of my best looks. I feel like the only to do is cut the back and wait until the front catches up with it.

  7. lflips says:

    I lover Anne’s outfit and makeup but I wish her bangs “swooped” less. Also, I really don’t like that hair color on Emily Blunt.

  8. QQ says:

    Considering I cant stand her syrupy beggy campaing and that i seem to be the only one on board with her hair I MUST say I ADORE this look, is Modern, clean, not Taylor Swiftlyspakly tea dresses not esoteric not faux sexy, The hair also isnt plastered to her face or whatever, is actually a solid growing strategy she’s got going on, Love

  9. Jenna says:

    Meh. I’m not crazy about that huge bow. Or her lacy cuffs. I like Emily the best; and I’m finally get used to her as a blonde.

  10. Faye says:

    I think since she’s growing out what was a very short amount of hair it’s going to be a little awkward for a while. Growing out your hair from being even kind of short can be really awkward. I bounce back and forth between short and longish cuts all the time, and the growing out part is horrid.

  11. mia girl says:

    I actually love everything about Anne’s look.

  12. Chicagogurl17 says:

    Anne looks like Christian siriano.

  13. Ri says:

    Jessica Chastain needs to fire her stylist ASAP. She could be the 2010s what Kidman and Blanchett were to the 00′s, but her stylist obviously hates her.

  14. bns says:

    I LOVE it. Now if only she would keep her mouth shut.

  15. lucy2 says:

    I always like that look, and it’s good on her.

  16. poppy says:

    she looks amazing. everything about her look is straight from 1983, the ysl tuxedo, the hair, shoes, so chic. i love her hair. love it. had it myself multiple times. it takes moxy (and being young and beautiful helps) to go that short, especially when your long hair is also beautiful.
    *runs and hides*

  17. Stubbylove says:

    This is my favorite look on Anne in some time – and there’s no vag flash so that’s always a plus.

  18. Anon says:

    I love Jessica & Anne’s oufits.

  19. Christina says:

    I’m not normally a fan of Anne, but she looks great here. Amanda’s look isn’t working at all. As for Emily – great dress, but blonde doesn’t suit her at all. It just makes her features look bland, which they aren’t’.

  20. FirstTimer says:

    I really like it when women wear suits like these and it’s really tailored well for their bodies. I liked Amanda’s dress, oddly enough. I love Jessica but the dress is just atrocious.

  21. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    This is the best Anne’s face has ever looked, IMO. She needs to keep this stylist and makeup artist for sure!
    Poor Amanda, beautiful girl wasted on an outfit like this..and same with Emily and that hair..not cute. I love me some John Krasinski!! He is my ideal bf ;)

  22. NeoCleo says:

    She is working the hell out of that hair cut. It looks great.

  23. Agnes says:

    love anne’s hair! it makes me miss having super short hair. the suit, not so much.

  24. MinnFinn says:

    Anne’s short cut is the most flattering style she’s ever worn.

    I never like women’s tuxedos but if you must, this YSL is the best I’ve seen. But the rise of Anne’s pants fits very poorly and noone caught that!

  25. F5 says:

    At least her cooch is covered.

  26. aenflex says:

    For the first time I saw an interview with her, supposedly just being ‘Anne’. I didn’t love her. She’s a great actress, but I prefer her in character versus IRL.
