Anne Hathaway in cream & silver Valentino: princess-pretty or ghostly?


Anne Hathaway is still in France, like she was yesterday, when she was the guest of honor at the Valentino show. These are pics from last night’s White Fairy Tale Love Ball at the Chateau de Wideville in Crespieres, France. I believe she was the guest of honor at this event as well, and she posed for photos with Valentino, who looks like a gigantic ham. Is it just me? Am I just hungry? Anyway, Anne is wearing Valentino, of course. I’ve talked about this issue I have with pale girls wearing white before, and I specifically remember bringing it up with Anne before – she looks washed out when she wears white and cream. And she’s ALWAYS wearing white for formal events or red carpets. The affect tends towards ghostly and corpsey, and it’s totally unnecessary, considering Anne looks amazing in jewel tones, as we know. All of that being said… I like the dress. I like that Anne is styled like a princess-fairy. It’s a cute effect, overall.


When we were talking about Anne’s mob widow style yesterday, a lot of pointed out that something weird is happening with her nose. I agree! I’m not saying “Bitch got tweaked” – at all. If anything, her nose looks larger than before. I have a theory, and it’s kind of mean. Remember when Ashlee Simpson got her nose job, and then years later, people started saying that her old nose was growing back? I wonder if that’s happening to Anne. Like, she got tweaked years ago, and her old, original nose is slowly creeping back. Or it could just be a deviated septum.

    Cute dress. Just not on her.

  2. Flounder says:

    She looks juvenile in this outfit…and yes..her nose is growing!

  3. taxi says:

    The dress itself is pretty, but not on Anne. What’s with the hair? Ophelia after they fished her out of the water? Maybe she’s auditioning for Corpse Bride?

    Yes, her nose has been looking bigger lately.

  4. says:

    The dress is meh, at best, but the makeup is horrifying. For someone with such a large mouth, I would go with a softer shade of lipstick. And that much eyeliner- even a princess can’t pull off that look!

  5. says:

    And the crown-thing and sparkly jewerly look tacky and are overkill.

  6. brin says:

    While the pictures aren’t all great, I love the overall look.

  7. N.D. says:

    Don’t care about sress. She looks tired in the face.

  8. lucy2 says:

    I like the dress itself, but not the accessories.
    Why do so many designers look so weird?

  9. Praise St. Angie! says:

    pretty dress, but it’s not right for her. I’d also like it better without the little shoulder caplets. Strapless would look better since the skirt is ornate.

  10. Hanh says:

    The designers look weird because they go crazy on the plastic surgery. In the industry they’re in which is all about looks, that’s not surprising. I hate the dress on her. Would look great on someone younger, but with the harsh makeup it looks blah.

  11. Jackson says:

    I don’t mind the dress, although it looks incredibly bridal to me. Her makeup, however, is terrible. Bad on her and completely wrong for the dress and overall look. She needs soft, natural pink tones here and a much easier hand. It would have given her an ethereal look. The thick dark eyeliner, bright red lipstick and ghostly skin color look cold and harsh.

    It could be the weight lose from getting ready for cat woman. If she is losing weight, she may be losing some in her face which might make her nose look larger.

  14. ladybert62 says:

    Pretty dress – she looks creepy – especially in that one large picture of her face.

    Who is that fake-baked sun tanned awfulness next to her – he is even more creepy.

  15. Lisa says:

    Wtf is she wearing? I don’t like her mainly b/c I’ve heard from ppl who’ve met her she’s a byatch

  16. neelyo says:

    That outfit seems too young for her and makes her look old.

  17. Chrissy says:

    I love the dress but, like others have said, not on her. And her make-up looks like they are trying to make her a star in one of the Twilight films. Her face looks ridiculously white.

  18. Ell says:

    I like the dress, very midsummer night. I think the blood red lipstick is the problem. Red lipstick only suits the odd woman, I have a friend who won’t go anywhere without hers, she thinks it looks great but it doesn’t.

  19. moonbeams says:

    OMG. Lately, I have been noticing her nose. It seems bigger. I know it isn’t but it seems. The camera angles and her hair and her make up. Definitely, her make up needs to change. Her make up is grotesque, it’s harsh. Her nose. Awful. She is not Barbra Streisand. It looks bigger. I think she should get it fixed. And change her make up. And Never center part your hair, Annie.

  20. Len says:

    I’ve never understood the appeal of this woman. Her features are all so…huge. Her nose, her mouth, her slightly droopy eyes. She ok, but she’s not beautiful.

  21. Jenny says:

    I think she looks paler standing next to Valentino because he is so orange. She looks a bit odd in general though and the nose is just, well, no words.

  22. sharylmj says:

    I agree that make up is Hideous!! She looks like an old lady trying to look young and she looks really worn out, like she has jet lag or something. Not a good look and I usually really like her style…. bad choice this time… fire stylist or whoever let her go out like that!!

  23. lilred says:

    Needs to fire her makeup “artist” and stylist STAT!

  24. Truthful says:

    I hate that thing on her head, HATE it.

    I hope grown women, do not follow this trend, with the headbands/crowns/indian headdress.

    it looks stupid.

  25. Chloe says:

    The general look reminds me of what the flower girls were wearing during Kate Moss’s wedding.

  26. yepp says:

    her face look really bad, she looks tired and haggared. her makeup is to harsh for a “fairy princess” look

  27. mannequin says:

    Lovely dress, and she of course looks beautiful. I love her taste in clothes and think she pretty much always looks good.

  28. mia girl says:

    I think two contributing factors for the recent emergence/prominence of her nose:

    1. Her makeup in the past two days has been atrocious and seems to almost accentuate her nose.

    2. She looks about 10 pounds skinnier than her usual weight (probably for her Catwoman role). When you go beyond a certain weight, many women (like me) get skinny in the face/cheek bone area thus making our nose look bigger/more prominent.

  29. madpoe says:

    Its a nice day for a white wedding!
    dress is nice but she looks like a grown up flower girl with heavy makeup.

  30. truetalk says:

    lord! that guy’s face looks like a mask meant to scare little children at the circus.

  31. ZenB!tch says:

    White seems to be the theme. She wore red lipstick (which I LOATHE) to compensate. I wish she hadn’t lightened her hair. I thought the black suited her more. I think the black (or close to black) is her natural color.

    I’m not as light as she is and I feel stupid in white.

  32. ZenB!tch says:

    Shouldn’t she be more toned for Catwoman? Her arms are looking (with profuse apologies) very LiLo-like.

  33. lolas says:

    whoah, too much makeup!!

  34. kibbles says:

    I love the dress but agree with the consensus that it looks bad on Hathaway. She’s almost 29-year-old. Her Disney “Princess Diary” days are over. She looks pretty bad in the second to last photo.

    I don’t know if her nose is “growing back” but I just see signs of aging. Someone who is almost 30 will usually look different from when they were 20. More often than not they look worse unless they’ve had some work done. Noses and other facial features change slightly over time as well. I never thought she had plastic surgery because the bottom half of her face never looked attractive to me in the first place.

  35. reggie says:

    This dress makes her nose look bigger

  36. Maritza says:

    Not a good look, big eyes, big nose and big mouth. She needs to stop wearing black eyeliner and red lipstick, she is to pale for those harsh dark colors and definitely not wear white because she looks ghostly.

  37. Ron says:

    Dress is lovely. Hair and makeup by Suri Cruise.

  38. Nymeria says:

    I saw the words “White Fairy Tale Love Ball” and just cracked up. To me, that is the best part of this story… how can you go to something called the “White Fairy Tale Love Ball” and not spend the entire time laughing? Anyway, given the theme, the dress doesn’t look as ridiculous as it normally would (nor does the headpiece, IMO). I agree re: her natural hair colour should not have been tweaked with, and her makeup is too harsh.

  39. ElleGin says:

    Less eyeliner please?!

  40. original kate says:

    anne looks like a dried out corn husk.

  41. She in Chi says:

    I’m a fan of Anne, but not this dress. And as a pale gal myself, with brown, curly hair, I venture to wear whites and creams, but ya gotta be careful. Standing next to Mr. Valentino is just wrong. It sends her fair skin into a whole other realm when compared to his otherworldly orange.

  42. sapphire says:

    I generally like Ann, but the make-up needs a serious revision. When you’re tired, the overdone eye-liner and lipstick make her look like a Kabuki doll.
    Now, with softened make-up, high lights and a little color, I think she could pull it off.

  43. OtherChris says:

    I usually find her beautiful. Not pretty, but beautiful in a striking way that maybe men don’t always notice, if that makes sense. But here, with that makeup, she looks a little rough.

    I don’t mind the dress.

  44. hunny says:

    I think she’s a knockout in practically every way. But I’m not loving this look.

  45. Dani says:

    You are right, this color totally washes her out. I do give her props for staying out of the sun and away from fake tanning sprays. Can you picture an orange Ann? That would not be good. The nose thing is very interesting. It is like it is taking over her face. The dress is ok but doesn’t bowl me over.

  46. Hmmm says:

    I agree with poster Len above. Never got her appeal at all. She is not classically pretty or even attractive! Must be good acting chops… cause otherwise I just don’t get it. I love the dress and hair thing, just not on her.

  47. Lucy says:

    you gotta go to Dlisted and see the close up of this orange dude…It will give you nightmares…lol…

  48. jemshoes says:

    LOL Kaiser! Valentino looks more like a stick of salami to me, and one that’s not appetising at all! 😀

    Anne looks lovely and ethereal in white, but, yes, also a little washed out and she’s too pale. I think it’s the fault of the makeup on her already-pale skin tone?

  49. CeeCee says:

    hosting a girls 5th birthday fairy party are we? She doesn’t rock red lipstick the way it should be rocked, makes her look gaudy

  50. Anonymous says:

    Why does her face look like its melting? And when does she start filming batman? Shouldn’t that be soon?

  51. Ashley says:

    I like her hair, and the dress is alright, but her makeup makes her look like a crazy person.

  52. Patricia says:

    What is she twelve???

    That’s just creepy.

  53. anne_000 says:

    tim burton must be remaking “the corpse bride” with valentino playing the part of lord barkis.

  54. forelithe says:

    Both ~ she’s a ghost princess!

  55. Anonymous says:

    is this the ghost of Christmas from the story or movie of Scrooge?

  56. terri says:

    Anne is getting too old to pull off this look. It would look great on someone younger. She needs to put on a few pounds….her facial features are too severe and large (eyes, nose, mouth) and need a few pounds around them to soften them up and not have them be so (scarily) prominent.

  57. Mi says:

    You know what freaks me out about Anne Hathaway in these pictures? Her makeup, what the hell is wrong with it, so looks freskishly scary!

  58. Olga says:

    dress is nice but them both are just hell scaring!

  59. she looks terrible!
    her outfit doest fit her well!
    and gosh!look at her eyes…a little eyeliner plz!

    her mouth too!for Petes sake!fire her make-up artist!
