Anne Hathaway wears Nina Ricci to celebrate Hugh Jackman: safe & pretty?

Here are some photos from last night’s Museum of Moving Images Salute to Hugh Jackman. Hugh’s BFF Anne Hathaway was there of course, as was Hugh’s wife Deborra-Lee Furness and Hugh’s Les Mis costar Eddie Redmayne, who grows cuter by the day. I’m including photos of all of them. Let’s discuss Anne first! She wore this Nina Ricci Spring 2013 dress which… I like. I don’t love it. I feel like this is “safe” and it’s definitely in Anne’s comfort zone. It’s weird to me that this came one night after Annie’s controversial head-to-toe Tom Ford look. Do you think this is a conscious choice by Anne and by her stylist Rachel Zoe? To do such a strong, controversial look for the premiere and then one night later do something much more “normal”. And this – more than anything else – is why I want Anne to be nominated for an Oscar. Because of the awards season fashion.

As for Hugh… I’m starting to feel the groundswell of support for Hugh, aren’t you? The reviews are coming in, and many critics have mixed feelings about many of the people involved… except for Hugh. Hugh is getting some of the best reviews of his life. Hugh carries the film, and apparently he carries it well. I do think that the time has come for Hugh to be rewarded with an Oscar nomination. I don’t know if he’ll actually get the Best Actor award or if he SHOULD win, but I would be so, so pleased to see him get a nomination.

    Yes, Hugh should be nominanted and win for Best Actor (though I have an inner dispute between him and Ewan).

    Anyway he should hire a stylist for his wife, she dress horribly.

    • Anonny says:

      I love that they have been together throughout his career and you don’t hear about him cheating on her with some LA-faced bimbo (please don’t now post a story about him cheating on her with some LA-faced bimbo…).

      So who gives a crap about her hair, or her shoes, or her age? This is what a real 57-year old woman looks like (ok, probably better than average, actually).

      • Audrey says:

        There are rumors out there that he’s gay. Yes, he loves his wife and had kids with her, but he prefers the other team.

        That said, they seem to be very happy together which is what’s important.

      • deehunny says:

        +1 to both Anonny & Audry

    • Andrew says:

      I’m afraid Daniel day Lewis is pretty much the winner…he was amazing in Lincoln.

    Eddie is adorable. I don’t care that he’s older than me, I just want to tuck him up in a blanket and hug him and then hug little babies.
    . . . Shut up, womb. Stop being broody. You’re staying empty.
    Anywho. I quite like Anne’s dress. It’s kind of flapper-ish and I’ve got a soft spot for that era.
    I think I read on the Daily Fail that the nominations for the Critics Awards (?) have come out. Hugh got a nomination (rightly so) and Anne’s in the same category as Judi Dench!
    Ha. I hope this is a taste of what’s to come later in the season.

    • BooBooLaRue says:

      Aw me too. Eddy is sweet somehow. He was wonderful in “Birdsong” on BBC/PBS. Go Dame Judi!

    • cmc says:

      “. . . Shut up, womb. Stop being broody. You’re staying empty.”

      LMAO!!! I get those feelings too. Like, womb, what are you thinking? You and I both know we don’t want anything taking up residence up in there. Shut up and process these anti-baby pills.

  3. Melissa says:

    Meh. Not really a fan of Anne’s dress. It’s not bad but it’s not good either? Hugh is looking great in that suit though.

  4. Angie says:

    I love Hugh so so much. He seems like a very nice guy and he is always so sweet and professionnal. I remember the first time I saw him on screen, in Van Helsing. The movie was so bad but you could see that he has a movie star’s screen presence. I also think he is a very underrated actor, he tends to do more action and popcorn movies. It would be so great to see him get a nomination, he would probably be very happy and grateful, contrary to someone like Joaquin Phoenix or Rooney Mara who act like they are above it. It’s so bad that the movie is not produced by Harvey Weistein like the king’s speech, because Hugh’s chance to be nominated (even win) would be better but the race for best actor is very crowded this year. And the academy will probably give Daniel Day Lewis his third statue, as if he needs one more.

    I would love to see these names for the oscar winners 2013:
    Best actor – Hugh Jackman
    Best actress – Jessica Chastain (wouldn’t hate it if Jlaw wins)
    Best supporting actress – Amy Adams
    Best supporting actor – Maybe Phillip Seymour Hoffman.
    And I want Matthew McConaughey to be nominated for something (magic mike!!!!), it will never happen but it would be too funny.

    I know Anne’s dress is not showing a lot of skin but I still feel like I’m seeing… too much of her I guess. And I don’t want to see! Maybe because she’s so skinny. That dress should have been pulled up. Anne really needs to gain some of her natural weight back now!

  6. Effy says:

    Safe? Yep!
    And she looks pretty from the backside picture.
    I also wish Hugh at least gets a nomination.

  7. poppy says:

    mr redmayne needs a better fitting jacket. or is that a new hipster doofus thing: wear child’s coat to make head look ginormous?

  8. Aria says:

    One question. I haven’t seen this movie (I saw the Claire Danes/Uma Thurman version) and I probably won’t because I’m not into musicals. How is Anne’s performance? Does she really deserve an Oscar Nom? What did the critics say about her as Fantine? Looking at the trailer she seems the weakest link, voice wise I mean, but I might be wrong.

    • Angie says:

      Apparently it’s the contrary. Almost all the critics say Anne is very good even the standout in the film. She is even praised in the mixed reviews. Actually Hugh and Anne get lots of rave and it seems that Russel Crowe is the weak link for some because of the signing. The consensus seems to be that Anne’s song “I dreamed a dream” is the highlight of the movie and that she made a big impression even if her role is very brief. They say an oscar nomination is a sure thing, some even think she will win. I ‘m not her biggest fan but I wouldn’t hate it if she wins, she seems like a professionnal and hard working actress. I think it’s between her and Amy but Anne has the advantage because it’s a showy role and an iconic song. I also love how a lot of critics cited Susan Boyle in their reviews XD

  9. emmie_a says:

    Anne’s dress is ok but I don’t think it fits her coloring or style. It would actually look better on Rachel Zoe, if that’s who styled her.

    I’m wondering if Anne bothered to wear panties with this dress. Maybe I’m in the minority with this but I think it’s sort of gross to go commando in a dress.

  10. Post-It's says:

    I hate that Anne is getting all the attention for a 20 minute role. Step aside, Anne, and let Hugh get the spotlight.

  11. lucy2 says:

    I’m looking forward to seeing it. Seems like this is the role of a lifetime for Hugh, but I think he might have a tough fight with DDL for Lincoln.

    Anne’s dress is OK. Hugh’s wife’s is terrible.

  12. Luls says:

    I know this is gonna sound mean, but hey, we say it about women all the time, so why not!

    I think Hugh has mommy issues. To me, it looks like he married a woman who could be his mother, to replace his own mom who abandoned him when he was still little. Yes, I said it.

    On another note, I agree that he should get an Oscar nomination. As for Anne, overexposure much?

    • Cody says:

      I have to agree with you Luis, when I saw Hugh interviewed on 60 minutes that is what came to my mind ,that he has some mommy issues. It is all right when you hear younger women marrying older men, because they may have Daddy issues, so why couldn’t we say that about younger men marrying older women. Also, Debra could really use some help on the red carpet. All she wears is these over sized black outfits and mommy shoes. She definitely could afford to consult with a stylist and hook up with some designers. I am sure there is even some up and coming Australian Designers. He just got a SAG nomination, so I hope he gets an Oscar nomination.

  13. normades says:

    Eddie is growing on me. I used to think he was really odd looking in a Cumberbatch way, but he looks really cute in pictures where he smiles (not like above).

    He would be really cute with Amanda S. I think they should totally get together but maybe he’s not douchey enough for her.

    • j.eyre says:

      Eddie is growing on me too. I do not, as of yet, find him attractive but I love his fashion sense and have put him on the radar for further consideration.

      (is it weird that clothing can turn me on so much?)

  14. Lipsy says:

    Awww I love that playful picture of Anne and Hugh together.

  15. Suzy says:

    I’m sure Hugh’s wife is lovely but she has very poor taste in footwear…

  16. Penny says:

    Eddie Redmayne looks like a British Seth Meyers. Which isn’t to say he’s unattractive, I just notice the resemblance.

  17. JH says:

    Love the dress- it looks perfect on her.

  18. cheeve says:

    I’m so sick of seeing her smug, malnourished face plastered everywhere. I know it’s not a popular stance, but I don’t like her at all, don’t think she’s pretty (although she can be striking and glamorous at times), and don’t think she’s an exceptional actress. I *hated* Rachel Getting Married, could barely make it through the movie. Anne seems desperate and try-hard to me and there’s no way the role of Fantine is large enough that she should be in consideration for a best actress nomination.

  19. cam says:

    Absolutely adore the dress. It’s beautiful and classy.
