Anne Hathaway in Valentino at Paris Fashion Week: Mob widow or chic?

valentino_arrivals_03_wenn3426521

Here are some new photos of Anne Hathaway today at the Valentino show for Paris Fashion Week. Annie is wearing Valentino, of course. At first, I was all “Meh, Mob widow much?” But check out the bottom of the dress – it’s totally transparent! Not Anne’s usual style, at all. Of course, I’d be hard-pressed to really define Anne’s style – Rachel Zoe is her stylist, and Rachel has put Anne in some horrendous things in the past, almost like Zoe is hypnotized by Anne’s pale skin and dark hair and eyes, and doesn’t know how to dress someone not blonde and tan. Over the past year, Anne has been working a more sophisticated style (especially during her fashion show at the Oscars), but this Valentino number just shows that Anne still needs to learn the power of saying “NO.”

Meanwhile, it seems like Anne is looking so fit and slim because she’s currently filming The Dark Knight Rises, where she will playing Catwoman. Hollywood Life recently had some details about the Catwoman suit Anne will be wearing:

Although we won’t be seeing Anne Hathaway in the iconic role of Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises for more than a year, an insider tells HollywoodLife.com new details about her much anticipated costume — and it’s not going to be like anything we’ve seen in the previous movies!

“Anne’s outfit is more tactical, like the comic book, than the previous Batman movies,” a source very close to the costume design tells us exclusively. “She will definitely be wearing the goggles and it’s going to be less sexy than Halle Berry and Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman costumes. She’s going to look more like a robber.”

Adds the insider, “But fan boys shouldn’t be worried. This costume is going to be form-fitting enough to make Anne look smoking hot.”

We cannot wait to see Anne — who says she’s been working out non-stop to get in shape for the role — as Catwoman. As we previously reported, a source on set told us the 28-year-old actress is dominating in the role and will blow audiences out of the water.

“Everything from the looks in her eyes, her head movements, her body–everything is so feline. The role is taking her to new places,” the insider said.

Goggles. Tactical. Feline. Not bad. I didn’t hate Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman suit, though – it looked painful, but I thought it seemed fun. Hallen Berry’s suit was just awful, though. Like a budget stripper in a kitty mask. I wonder if Anne’s suit will be latex, leather or perhaps some other material? We’ll see.

    of course!!michelle didn’t need a costume to look sexy..she was the sex even without the costume.mark my words she will be ridiculous..

  3. brin says:

    She should have definitely said no to that dress.

  4. meilamon says:

    I couldn’t see the dress, her nose was in the way.

  5. carrie says:

    She looks so white,slim,almost dull or tasteless

  6. mia girl says:

    There are so many things wrong with this Paris look that I don’t know where to start!

    • Le dress is not chic at all. It looks like one of the costumes in the Adams Family musical.
    • The fit of le dress is terrible!
    • Le appliqué in the middle of the breasts?!… I think my granny must have loaned it to Valentino.
    • Le hairstyle is at odds with dress. Bad styling.
    • What is going on with le makeup (she looks sick)
    • Le shoes! Oh my god those 80ish patent pump shoes!
    • Le purse? WTF? Why that purse with that dress?

    Individually, any one of these pieces might be ok, but all together this is one big LE MESS!

    Didn’t Anne recently say in an interview that she trying to be less of a “pleaser”. Well Anne, the word you need to use ironically rhymes with Zoe.

  7. Waldemar says:

    Thank God for those sunglasses! She is looking tired.

  8. whybenice says:

    Looks more apropos for October 31st with a broom.

  9. Lia says:

    Her nose is taking on a life of its own. It’s getting longer and wider every month, it seems.

  10. You don't say says:

    Elvira’s cousin would be an apt description. That photo makes her nose dominate the frame. It was the first thing I noticed, which is not good. Don’t see her as Catwoman. Michelle was perfect. Though Halle’s movie was dreadful, she at least looked good in the costume. Sexy is not a word I would use to describe Anne.

  11. normades says:

    @miagirl: agree on all points, the purse is the worst offender though imo

    Anne really has no personal style. It’s all her stylists’ and all her different outfits don’t create a cohesive look or style. It’s like she’s playing dress up without owning it.

    Guess they tried to be kinda edgy and sexy to build up for catwoman. Fail.

  12. rep says:

    Master Valentino would be horrified by this outfit. I don’t know what the new maison’s designers have in their mind.

    The guy that is with her seems to be Valentino’s lifetime partner. He is obviously trying to drag her in. Looks like he is not that happy that someone is taking pics of her.

  13. S says:

    Meh. I love the dress. If it had longer sleeves, and I felt more comfortable about my legs, I’d totally wear it. The sleeves are too flouncy for my liking, though. But I do love me some sheer!

  14. really says:

    more like witch!

  15. Calli Pygian says:

    Three words:

    Fire. Rachel. Zoe.

  16. Mag says:

    Love it but the hair should have been styled differently. The shoes – maybe a strappy slingback. Or she should have foregone the stockings and worn a colourful strappy sandal. Like red nicholas kirkwood ones that I am currently drooling over.

  17. Bobbie says:

    OMG Lia (number 9), too true! You made me laugh loudly and inappropriately at work. Love it.

  18. ladybert62 says:

    I have never thought this woman was pretty – her mouth is toooooo big – all I ever think of when I see her is Julia Roberts!

    That dress is horrible!

    And is she gay? What adult female walks around holding the hand of another adult female – strange.

  19. neelyo says:

    She’s very attractive though I’ve never considered her a beauty at all. In that second picture, she bears an unfortunate resemblance to Sofia Coppola.

  20. lucky says:

    eh on her dress but the dress on the woman with her in the first pic. is a WINNER!!

  21. Ron says:

    God awful, she looks like Morticia Addams slutty cousin.

  22. 4Real says:

    Just terrible…

  23. Nymeria says:

    Erm… maybe that… thing – okay, okay, I’ll use the word ‘dress’ – with some black industrial-goth boots studded with silver stud things?

    I still don’t like it, but I think it would look better with gothy accessories. If you’re going to goth, goth all out! ;)

  24. original kate says:

    the top is pretty but i hate the bottom. the sheer black L’eggs-style hose and weird pumps are totally “working girl.” and the purse is just all wrong with this. also, when the top is that intricate she should wear her hair up to show it off. this is just styled so badly. michelle williams or carey mulligan would have rocked this.

  25. Boo says:

    Her facial features all seem to be growing. She’s looking like a caricature of herself.

  26. I’m sayin’ ditch the granny skivvies-and then we’ll talk..

  27. Truthful says:

    That dress is DREADFUL.

  28. Stubbylove says:

    Ditto other comments. NAST – she looks like an idiot – nothing interesting or exciting about what she’s wearing. I love the dress/look of her friend in the first pic.

  29. Ashley says:

    She has such a strange face and not in a good way. It’s more hideous on the main page.

    And who wears black panty hose in the summer?!?!

    I just can’t see her playing cat woman. She lacks sex appeal and that bad ass streak that makes Catwoman such a force to be reckoned with. Nothing will replace Michelle. I know the fan boys will debate me till they’re blue in the face but Batman Returns was the best Batman movie.

  30. original kate says:

    wait – anne hathaway as catwoman? do not want.

  31. velourazure says:

    did her doc accidentally augment her nose instead of her chest?

  32. Chris says:

    That second photo isn’t very flattering.

  33. Hein says:

    2nd picture.. Oh my. Not so photogenic.
