Anne Hathaway in floral Erdem at the PGAs: a bright spot in a sea of black dresses?

These are some photos from last night’s Producers Guild Awards, which… as awards go, this is a decent indicator of which film is going to win Best Picture. Sometimes. Probably. So does it surprise you that Argo picked up the top award, the Darryl F. Zanuck Award? So I guess Argo is going into the Oscars as the “favorite”. You can read more of who won what here at Deadline. This post is just about fashion!

So let’s start with the one everybody loves to loathe, Anne Hathaway. She wore Erdem. I really dislike this whole look, and yet… I’m kind of glad Annie is mixing it up. Almost all of the ladies at this event were wearing black and styled so “Blah, I don’t care, this isn’t a real awards show.” Yes, Anne is a try-hard. But that’s what makes her so fun to talk about! I’m also glad she’s trying different things with her hair.

Nicole Kidman in L’Wren Scott. Naomi Watts in Victoria Beckham. I love Nicole’s look (but I almost always love L’Wren’s stuff) but Nicole’s hair is rough. Naomi’s look is just blah. This was not a good event for fashion.

Jennifer Garner in Oscar de la Renta. Eh. It’s really boring, especially on her.

Amanda Seyfried in Roland Mouret. Did you know Amanda used to have the same stylist as Jennifer Lawrence? The stylist (Elizabeth Stewart) has a major problem with A) colors and B) boobs. Lawrence fired her (and hired Rachel Zoe) last year, so now Amanda gets all of this woman’s attention.

Jessica Alba in Elie Saab. YIKES. First of all, the dress is just too “I’m a sparkly widow!” And WTF is going on with the styling? Her hair is a hot mess.

Kerry Washington in MARCHESA. For why?!? Oh, right. Harvey Weinstein produced Django. Got it. Also: WTF is with her hair? Was there some kind of hair stylist strike last night and no one told me? This whole post is a bad hair buffet of fugness.

    My theory on bad hair – judging by the Affleck post it’s been raining in LA. I’m thinking LA hair-stylists rarely deal with humity issues.

    • Stuart Horseley says:


    • valleymiss says:

      That’s exactly what I was coming here to say…either the hair looked good and got rained on, or the hairdressers never bothered in the first place cuz of the rain.

    • Shoe_Lover says:

      i think you are right. It’s uper hot and humid where i live today and my usual neat, pin curled hair is so frizzy

  2. Pompadour says:

    If that dress was floor length it would’ve been stunning..this is just meh.

  3. Skipper says:

    I like Anne from the waist up. The rest of the dress implies she may be pregnant. Jessica Alba looks awful. Just awful. Maybe she’s going for the haggard, out of touch, Mommy look.

    • Raven says:

      The third photo down makes it look like Anne has a second dress following the first. The panels on the dress are badly done, too. It looks like a home ec project gone awry.

      I love Nicole’s dress. But there does seem to be a droopy similarity to most of the hair styles. I think the stylists’ lack of experience with humidity is a good theory.

      • emmie_a says:

        Yes! I could’ve sewn the panels on AnnE’s dress better. It looks like a crap. A cheap piece of crap. And she looks pregnant. The post failed to mention her custom made vegan Zanotti vegan shoes because AnnE is such a hard core vegan (as we learned earlier not out of compassion for animals but to keep the weight off. ugh hate her).

    • RocketMerry says:

      And I like AnnE’s dress from the front. The back is just atrocius: it’s shapeless, like they fitted and pulled the front part and then turned the dress around and kind of went “Eh, frack it. It’s for AnnE, anyways”.

      I love the shade of orange on Amanda, but the dress is wrinkly, poorly hemmed and sack-y in the bust. What da…?

    • j.eyre says:

      That’s where I went – fueling pregnancy rumors. I don’t hate the dress and if it had an empire waist, it would be a cute 1st/2nd trimester maternity dress.

      Nicole looks like that dress was designed on her. It’s almost perfect.

    • Meredith says:

      Yes, Anne’s dress is a little pouffy at the waist but especially around the back (?). Like the colors.

  4. Nene says:

    They look horrible. All of them. It’s great example that good light can make wonders and without it… WTF is wrong with Anne H. she looks like troll from Tolkien’s novel. She used to be cute, not beautiful, but cute and now she is just… yuck.

    • Mr.Smurf says:

      For once the Marchesa dress didn’t look like total crap…if her hair had been styled better I would have liked the whole look.

      Last summer was when Blake Lively was kissing Weinstein’s butt, and out came the ice-skater fug dresses. I showed my aunt a few that were in the celebitchy line up, and she gasped (she’s a little dramatic) and said “Oh my God that’s ugly! That’s the ugliest dress I’ve ever seen!” Yep, the power of Weinstein.

    • Peta says:

      Well color me surprised but I actually like Anne’s look tonight. She’s put on perhaps a hint more weight and actually looks, dare I say, glowing. Perhaps not as tense as she’s looked at other events maybe she knows she’s got Oscar in the bag at this point and will finally CALM DOWN a bit. She’s got a bit more of her old figure back (although this sack dress doesn’t show it) and looks good. She’s not preggo just saw photos of her in workout gear this week & her stomach is flatter than ever. Let’s pray that her acceptance speech tonight should she win is a bit more humble & subdued than what we’ve seen. I like a happy, peppy but calmer Anne (please!).

      Amanda just looks….aargh. Orange?and rumpled. I actually also like Jess Alba tonight, don’t know why but I like that dress. Probably shouldn’t, but I do :) Jen G. and Naomi eeek! Naomi looked so great at the GGs this is such a disappointment and Garner needs to be careful of aging herself sometimes.

  5. K-rock says:

    I can’t look at her objectively any more. I’m starting to really not like her lately. I think her true colors are starting to show.

    • ds says:

      All this campaign stuff made it impossible for me to care for the film. I saw it yesterday and though I thought it looked splendid I just couldn’t stand her. She did a good job as an actress but… she made me not care for one of the most suffering female roles.

  6. daisydoodle says:

    what exactly does jessica alba do? all she does is show up to award shows…get the swag, wear a pretty dress and leave….

    • jamie says:

      I had the same thought when I saw her…why is she there?

    • Justyna says:

      I don’t know what she was doing at the award show but she actually did work last year. Her movie just premiered at Sundance and it’s a comedy with Adam Scott and Amy Poehler. Everybody knows she can’t act and that she has zero comedic timing but she still gets acting jobs. Which makes me wonder – is that popularity, connections, something else I cant’s see? She is pretty but not that pretty.

  7. Amelia says:

    Grandma’s curtains come to mind …

  8. Ashling says:

    I wonder if Nicole’s hair is so damaged from straightening it all the time. Alba looks depressed. Even her make up looks bad.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Alba’s face! What’s going on with her face? Is that make-up? Abject misery? Settled plastic surgery?

      • Relli says:

        My first thought as well! The dress and hair are bad enough but the makeup is atrocious, she has old lady spackle on and was left out in the sun too long.

      • Sugar says:

        My first thought on seeing jA was I knew Morticia Adams and you ma’am are no Morticia Adams. My second thought why is she there?

  9. LAK says:

    I think I prefer kiera knightly in the floor-length pale coloured version of AnnE’s dress.

    Scrolling down, was feeling happily surprised by a half-way decent marchesa, then saw the dust ruffle at the bottom of it. Urgh! Fugly!

    Poor Jessica Alba.

  10. Shira says:

    Anne’s dress is quite possibly the worst thing I’ve seen since the year began.

    And I actually love Jennifer.

  11. xoo says:

    alba looks awful.. dress, hair, make up.. sometimes her hair looks just gross..

  12. cheerfulg says:

    Ahhhh. Now I know why Jennifer Lawrence has had some fashion mis-steps of late…she is in the Zoe (Twilight) Zone. I think with the right statement earrings Ms Hathaway would have been spot on since her dress is a circa 1950′s Balenciaga wannabe…

    • Shira says:

      I have no idea what the fuss is about Rachel Zoe, I HATE the stuff she wears and I hate the stuff she makes my girl crush wear.

    • Liv says:

      Jennifer’s style is horrible lately, seriously. What is Rachel Zoe doing with her? Ugh, I really hope she gets a new stylist as soon as possible. She’s so beautiful and always looks off.

  13. the original bellaluna says:

    “Bad hair buffet of fugness” – This, Kaiser, is why we love you!

    I was like “WTF” with everyone’s hair?!? (I mean, Anne wins for hairstyle.) While I understand humidity/rain isn’t the norm in LA, it’s NOT rocket science; it’s HAIR and RAIN. (Put it in a fancy pony, an unstructured bun, a snood; whatever. Don’t just let it limply hang there!)

    • j.eyre says:

      “While I understand humidity/rain isn’t the norm in LA, it’s NOT rocket science”

      OBella – for LA, rain and hair IS rocket science. I once took my hair down after it had dried in a French braid and went into catatonic shock for several days. My mail lady found me and dug a comb out of her pocket to administer to me. It was horrifying.

      The only thing I will add was that it rained in morning yesterday, became a beautiful day (during which most PGAers were dressing and hairing) and as evening fell, a very dense, low, wet fog came in. So people were not planning for rain and had to deal with a lot of moisture. No idea if this makes any difference to hair, but there you go.

      • bluhare says:

        Fog and mist wreaks havoc on curly hair that is trying to be straight. I live in the Pacific NW, and have very curly hair, so I know. We have a lot of drizzle here and it’s almost impossible to keep your hair smooth without a hat.

      • LAK says:

        That makes me think of snow weather challenged London. We are never prepared.

  14. lisa2 says:

    I guess Anne is saving it for the last two big awards shows.. SAG and Oscar.

    I just think she doesn’t look interesting in the dress. It looks like she didn’t really care. not sure if jewelry would have helped. But yes that waist line makes her look pregnant.

    I like the celebs that don’t show up for every event. I could see if Jessica and others were there if they had a movie out. I just don’t know what Jessica Alba is doing now.

    It would have been nice to see ONE picture of Jennifer and Ben posing together. Dumb when you are both at an event and don’t at least take a picture together.

  15. erika says:

    May the Lord have mercy on this trick she is annoying just by consuming oxygen. See Anne and I used to compete with each other for oxygen. Now, she get’s more of the oxygen than me and she gloats about it w/her mile wide donkey grin. Hee Hawww Hot MESS!

    You know, there’s a reason the gay community can’t stand her either. and you know you’ve got to bow down to the gays when it comes to picking what’s hot and in and what’s not. anne is a NOT.

    Anne is a bright spot of Bitch-ness. I mean, yes, I thought the same thing that a huge storm cloud of Lohan rolled in and rained a hot mess of: greasy hair, fried self tanning, oily skin and botox worn off too quick ageing…specially on Kidman and Alba. eeksss….

  16. T.C. says:

    So Anne is still at the Les Miz reduced weight though she acts like she’s uncomfortable about how she lost the weight and that it was only for the movie. Don’t like her dress.

    Naomi, Nicole and Kerry look fabulous. Jessica Alba and Amanda Seyfried are a two thumbs down.

  17. Ms Kay says:

    Wow Nicole looks like a tower next to her BFF Naomi. O_O

  18. Cool Phosphorescent Shimmer says:

    I can’t stand it when floral patterns don’t match at seams. I know that sounds stupid, like I just blew in from 1957, but I find it visually jarring and cheap-looking.

    • Meredith says:

      Ageed. It isn’t rocket science to just line up the pattern on both sides. I used to sew and this is what makes a dress look well made instead of cheap, like you didn’t have enough fabric.

  19. Starlight says:

    She feels threatened by Katie. Katie has her height and structure. She can easily be replaced. Katie can sing too if given proper tutorials.

  20. La Calabaza says:

    At least, Anne is gaining some needed weight. She doesn’t rock the waif look neither the pixie cut. Long hair and curves are her thing.

    The dress is AWFUL.

  21. judyjudy says:

    I’m a fan of orange and really like Amanda’s dress.

    The print of Ann’s dress is pretty but the style is ….wtf? I don’t even know.

  22. blonde on the dock says:

    Yuk to all!

  23. Lucy2 says:

    Half of this looks like a casting call for Morticia Adams.
    Everything else is really bad too. Anne’s just adds volume, Amanda looks saggy, and to Kerry looks like someone took a nice dress and stapled tulle to it.

  24. Irina says:

    I dont want to be a biatch but …. I need to be honest I love this site so much, I feel like you guys are always on point when it comes to gossip but you guys dont know anything about fashion. You guys always get it wrong maybe you guys should hire an expert in fashion. Im not trying to be mean or anything but Im a fashion stylist trying to become a fashion designer and trust me I know my stuff.

    • Loui Olsen says:

      Completely agree

    • Mr.Smurf says:

      I know that there is a difference between everyday wear and ball gowns and other things like that, but when a normal person looks at a designer dress, we should be able to tell if it looks nice. That’s the bottom line.

      To me it seems that a lot of designers are just throwing a bunch of crap onto a dress so that it looks slightly different from the others…that’s not fashion.

      We shouldn’t have to choose between looking plain and looking like a weirdo for having a dress with a bunch of un-cohesive(is a word?) crap for the sake of fashion.

    • Anna Patricia says:

      Yesss people in this blog dont know anything about fashion.

      Lets start by Kerry Washington that girl looks breath taking from her neck down.That dress looks amazing!

      Amanda Seyfried in the other hand looks lovely from the neck up. That orange dress is terrible.She needs to buy an iron asap

      Jessica Alba looks gorgeous I just dislike the blue nails with a fushia lips. That combination would look adorable for prom. But her dress is perfect I think Im in love.

      Anne Hathaway hair is terrible that’s what happened when you are a bitch to your hairdresser and the dress well is beautiful for a woman desperate to hide her baby bump!

    • Fran says:

      the average reader here isn’t for hard core fashion analysis. we’re here for looking at some pictures of chicks in ugly dresses and funny commentary. if you are looking for super stylish analysis, you’re on the wrong site.

      • Anna Patricia says:

        Fran nobody wants you to be the next George Kotsiopoulos but there has to be some type of fashion knowledge to be able to judges others.

        And the writers of this blog they always get it wrong. And what you think is a hideous dress could be one of the most fashionable dresses of our times.
        Is like me talking about politics and economic what does a Parson student know about it. To each their own just dont talk about something you dont know.

      • Lucy2 says:

        I think everyone is entitled to their opinion, whether they have studied fashion or not. For those who have, you are going to come at it from a different perspective, and that is definitely interesting to hear. But to say people who haven’t studied fashion shouldn’t write or talk about it doesn’t make sense to me, as it’s an art form put out there for public viewing. Not everyone who goes to a museum or gallery has to be a painter, and not everyone who enjoys music has to be a singer or play an instrument.

      • Fran says:

        except fashion is subjective, so everyone, even those who have studied fashion, will not agree on what is great and what isn’t. so K and CB can state their opinion and that’s what it is and they aren’t saying they are right – they’re just presenting the pictures and stating what they think about it. honestly you guys sound a little elitist to say that someone who didn’t pay thousands of dollars to learn about clothes isn’t allowed to say anything about them.

    • erikaI says:


      well, I have an MFA in fashion merchandising and used to work (not now) as a merchandiser for a retail company so technically I can talk/judge fashion as far as current designers but honestly i wouldn’t lay it out on this forum.

      For me, personally, I LOVE Celebitchy too (uhh, why else would I wake up at 8am on Sunday morning? To judge and rip on celebrities!). However, I wouldn’t lay down my fashion knowledge on this forum because I want to have fun poking at celebrities, rehashing their trash, psycho-analyzing their self obsessed personalities (read: disorders!) and occasionally praising.

      I laid down my opinion already. It had nothing to do w/ fashion–anne’s dress is beautiful, the floras are on trend and I like the japanese kimono obi detail at the back and I like Amanda’s in terms of the orange color, another on trend),

      I guess, to each their own opinion and thoughts in terms of presence her on Celebitchy. All us CBers give good commentary.

    • Nina says:

      Fashion is so subjective though. If u are saying that people on here don’t know what the trends are or how to be a fashion victim, ok. But people have their taste and all are entitled to their opinions.

      Annes dress for example, looks to me like someone got a jigsaw puzzle wrong. Maybe that’s fashionable but it looks wrong to me. Not very fashion forward, i am.

      Kerrys dress however, actually looks decent on her I’d say, although I think it could lose the bottom ruffle.

  25. Seagulls says:

    You can call it “Erdem,” I will call it what it really is: a post-shower wrap. What a terrible dress! Pattern doesn’t match, in a very jarring way, and such a strange shape.

    I really like Naomi and Nicole’s dresses. Both very pretty.

  26. Oi says:

    OMG EVERYONE: stand up straight! arrrrrg…

  27. Timber says:

    I love Jennifer Garner’s dress and shoes. I think she looks fantastic!

  28. emmie_a says:

    Jennifer Garner is just like Katie Holmes – they both look incredibly gorgeous with makeup!

    Nicole Kidman looks like a wax statue next to Naomi (that’s not a good thing).

    Amanda is soo beautiful but she always gets her red carpet fashion all wrong. I want her to hook up with a good stylist so we can really see her shine.

    Ugh. Jessica Alba’s tan is too dark and her lipstick too bright. She looks old & haggard.

    Kerry Washington has to get some shoes that fit her wide feet. Those looks painful.

  29. Anna Patricia says:

    Nicole Kidman really needs to stop doing whatever she’s doing to her face.

    And Miss I know it all Jessica Alba looks fantastic in that gown.

  30. lrm says:

    Naomi is so beautiful and looks natural-such a rare treat in red carpet pics….

    Nicole always looks nice-even with the frozen face.

    Alba looks absolutely trashy-i’m surprised! that colored nail polish, the hair, the langerie nightgown dress….awful!!! she looks like a teenager trying to dress up to go out.

    Garner is beautiful; this look is not that great, but it’s not awful either.

    I like anne’s dress-i’d wear it myself-but cannot say it’s amazing on her or anything….she’s obnoxious.

    Naomi FTW

  31. carrie says:

    finally AnnE Hathaway gained weight or she’s pregnant (why to wear this wear when you’re so skinny?!

  32. Marianne says:

    The dress makes her look wide and a humpback. The hair looks a mess too. Overall, not a good look.

  33. Fran says:

    she looks like she wrapped a shower curtain around herself!

  34. Just Me says:

    I read PGA in the title and all I could think was “why is Anne Hathaway dressed up at a golf tournament?”

  35. Ruyana says:

    Anne’s dress looks like beach wear to me.

  36. d says:

    I like the fabric of Anne’s dress, but I HAAAAAAAATE the style. That is one unflattering, poorly designed, crappy looking dress. The designer’s head was waaay up their a** on that one. No female over 12 should wear a style like that, never mind that this one also looks badly done. God. I’m glad she did her hair differently though. Also: PLEASE STAND UP STRAIGHT AND STOP SLOUCHING, ANNE!!!! Lord, why do women do this? It’s a terrible look and does not convey a good impression.
    Jennifer Garner’s dress: Ok, but I don’t think the ruffle does her legs any favours.
    Jessica Alba’s dress: WTF?!
    Amanda S: nice idea, BADLY executed. The colour is good. The seams look like a high-school home-ec project.
    Kerry Washington’s dress: As usual, too try hard. Meh. Nice colour, but that’s about it. Marchesa is always over-rated.

  37. exxo1111 says:

    I always love Kerry Washington. This look is good – especialy the splash of color on her purse.

    If she had added strong earrings repeating the rose/or a different variation of the rose w/ a sprkly affect – diamonds – it would have brightened the outfit too make it really perfect.

  38. cs says:

    Anne’s hair/make-up is beautiful, dress is meh. Nicole looks so old to me. I can’t believe she and Naomi are the same age. Amanda is a hot mess. Jennifer looks good but the dress seems a little big around the waist. It gives her a boxy look.

  39. Emma says:

    I don’t like any of the dresses, although Jessica’s might look better on someone else, and at least Kerry’s flatters her unlike the others.
    These girls get the pick of couture and this is what they come up with sheesh

  40. Lee says:

    Dress looks awful on her. She is too thin for that dress….looks like a maternity dress, and a bad one at that.

  41. Chelsea's handler says:

    It’s probably just the haircut but AnnE reminds me of Liza Minnelli. And Liza won an Oscar back in 73 for her role in Cabaret.

  42. Snowpea says:

    Anne looks terrible. Her features freak me out.

    She looks like Sid from Ice Age. That is all.

  43. KellyinSeattle says:

    I just want to comment on Mario Lopez. Does anyone else think he’s one of the top most annoying people ever? He knows how to work the dimples, fer sure.

  44. Mew says:

    Veeery unflattering dress Anne. Her neck/chest area looks painful. She has gone to great lenght to keep herself tiny, which she once said to be “unrealistic” too… probably still “not eating anything at all” or “just some oatmeal paste”. Go Anne go!

  45. Nanz says:

    Jennifer Garner’s face is unrecognizable. Amanda Setfried looks tanked. I agree that the hair/dresses are a cacophony of fug.

  46. Susi says:

    Why is Anne hunched forward in all of these photos?

  47. serena says:

    I like Jennifer Garner’s dress. I also like Amanda’s but more the colour than the cut of the dress.. that seemed a bit off. The others are fug as hell, wtf was going on with Alba’s make-up and dress..for the love of god..

  48. LadyJane says:

    Those pop-up ads on each photo are very very annoying.

  49. aang says:

    she needs some toned muscle. she still looks ill to me.

  50. Fran says:

    Jessica Alba looks like Kourtney Kardashian..

  51. Nina says:

    Annie looks cute, whimsical… she’s one of the few who’s not afraid to try prints and patterns.
    This might be the worst I’ve ever seen Jessica Alba look… scratch that, this might be the worst she’s ever looked. Just haggard.
    And, lastly, I’m not a Marchesa fan, but I must admit that Kerry Washington looks smokin’ hot!!
