Anne Hathaway in Gucci, Viktor & Rolf at the Oscars: beautiful or basic?


One of our most talked about ladies from last year’s Oscars was pretty much a non-entity at last night’s Oscars. I suspect that was done on purpose – Anne Hathaway knows people are still “mad” at her. But she still showed up to present Best Supporting Actor (to Jared Leto), and she wore a dress that pretty much says “I won last year, you don’t have to pay too much attention to me.” Annie’s Oscar dress was Gucci. It doesn’t look like much on the red carpet (it actually looks rather basic, right?), but on stage, the bejeweled halter top did sparkle like strobe-effect diamonds. When she was on stage, it was a LOOK AT ME moment with the sparkles.

As for her hair… I can’t believe it’s still so short. I get that Annie thinks it’s “freeing” or cute or something, but I wish she would grow it out a little bit more. Annie and Joseph Gordon Levitt have the same hair these days (and he wears it better). Annie’s makeup was very fresh and pretty though – she didn’t go overboard at all.



After the Oscars, Annie switched to a black-and-white Viktor & Rolf gown. I think I prefer this one to the Gucci Oscar gown, but is it just me or does this look like vintage cruise-wear? Like, I see these photos and I begin to hum “The Love Boat” song. No comment on her husband except I’m glad he wasn’t wearing skinny-cut pants.

    I really like both of these dresses, especially the red carpet one. Reminds me of her last year’s Burberry at the BAFTAs. A total win – a totally classy comeback.

  2. LadySlippers says:

    @Kaiser: I’m still amazed at how late you were up last night and how early these two posts appeared. Did you get *any* sleep? Will you nap today?

  3. Serene says:

    I feel for Anne. I think she didn’t deserve the backlash against her last year. Why all the hate?? She was simply campaigning, much like all the actors this year were doing.
    I wonder if all the backlash/online hate spoiled the win for her?

    • Crank says:

      I felt like she was just overexposed last year compared to the other best actress nominees, but that’s certainly not a reason to hate her. Still love her, and she’ll be back on the scene with movies this year and everyone will be talking about her good acting again, because I think she’s great and to surprises (I mean she was pretty much the best part of the dark knight rises in my opinion).

    • Tapioca says:

      She was the shoo-in and didn’t really need to campaign, but went all-out anyway with the “Pick me! Like me!” suffering for her craft nonsense (vs. the ultimate joy of having a crappy 9 to 5?). She had the backlash, but was wise enough to go away and now everyone’s sympathetic because she was never that bad to begin with. Win Oscar, win hearts – result!

      I love the black sparkly one.

    • I didn’t like her, because she, first off, was acting like she wouldn’t gut her own mother for that Oscar. Second, she spent the majority of the awards season saying that she wouldn’t talk about how she lost the weight, because she didn’t want young girls following her stead, only to reveal HOW SHE LOST THE WEIGHT (by starving herself–she said she only ate a little oatmeal paste a day while on the set) a few weeks before the Oscars. And then there was that crap at the Golden Globes with her interrupting the producer, right after she made her speech, and then while the producer’s talking, she’s hugging up on Amanda Seyfried like they’re BFFS 4EVAH (which, by the look on Amanda’s face, they weren’t). And then the Oscars–when she had that faux baby voice when she won–It came true! God.

      • Wilma says:

        Yes, to all of this. I liked her plenty before her over the top campaigning, but because of all the stuff she said and did during her campaign I just lost it with her. I still find it hard to look at her and not hear her cooing ‘it came true’. Ugh.

        That being said, love both dresses and love the hair.

    • decorative item says:

      She flashed her business to get attention, that’s hard to respect.

  4. Crank says:

    I think Anne was beautiful…even though she got on my nerves last year, I forget how much I still love her. She’s a wonderful actress and I can’t wait to see her in Interstellar this year…this girl’s got some great acting chips, and I think she’s awesome in the dress.

    • Crank says:

      *chops lol. And even though hipster skinny pant man makes me cringe sometimes, they look like a nice couple with no public drama.

  5. Celia says:

    I still don’t get all the ‘hate’ Anne got last year and Jennifer has been getting this year. You could have them breathing and a bunch of people would immediate complaining how annoying their breathing is. I’ve honestly seen much vitrol thrown at them than the likes like Aaron Hernandez or Darren Sharper who are actually charged with serial killings and serial raping. People were surprised and shocked to hear the allegations but even their fans weren’t really angry like people online seem to be angry at Anne and Jennifer just for being deemed annoying. It’s just strange to me.

    • MonicaQ says:

      Sports persons maybe famous but it’s a different kind of a famous. And when the two meet, ala Tim Tebow, it does not end well. The schizophrenia of sports fandom is that they’re just numbers, a logo, some good memories, and stats, not people. Case in point, I’m a Dolphins fan, I love Dan Marino. He’s a large chunk of the reason I play football today. He ended up fathering a love child with one of the behind the scenes people at CBS while he worked there. My first thought? Not the charities with autism, his adoptive children, or his wife that’s stuck by him all these years. Nope. It was, “How much worse can it get for this franchise after this Incognito crap, damn.”

      Granted, the action was not criminal like Sharper and Hernandez. What they’ve done reprehensible and they deserve scorn of the highest degree. But people see the teams and their memories, not people. I watch football obsessively and I doubt I could tell you what Carson Palmer looks like. We don’t see their faces in every instance. You see actors’ faces though. I think that’s why she got so much (undeserved) hate.

  6. Jade says:

    Oh god what happened to her husband? He looked so old in that photo. Visible white hair, that little curl???

  7. serena says:

    I don’t find her annoying anymore, but it’s good she continues to be demure and all. Anyway she needs to grow her hair a bit, that style reminds too much about her annoying Oscar-campaign and it may be cute but doesn’t do So much to her.

  8. QQ says:

    I LOVE her hair, the dresses are “Fine” Nothing earth shattering but i appreciate she let go of acting like a cream puff and that we don’t have to call her “Annie” anymore, so basically she is back to being a normal grown sturdy chick

  9. Kaye says:

    I thought she was supposed to be pregnant. Didn’t her brother “accidentally” leak that?

  10. LaurieH says:

    I love both of these dresses. My only negative is that the top of the dress that she presented in, while presenting, was a bit distracting when the lights hit it.

  11. chloe says:

    I liked her dress this year, last years was nipply hell.

  12. Mrs. Darcy says:

    I MUCH prefer the Viktor & Rolf, though it is a bit Love Boat I agree. Julie (of Love Boat) would have rocked it! The GUCCI makes her boobs look saggy, not just from these pics either- they don’t really show it from the front properly. I just don’t like it, it’s heavy and boring. Her posture is horrific in all of these shots which is also not helping. Her hair is looking a bit Sandy Duncan, not loving the mini quiff at all. She needs to re-hire Rachel Zoe, stat.

  13. Diana Prince says:

    The dress she wore on stage nearly gave me a seizure when the sparkles kept catching the light. That was a little much.

  14. Micah says:

    I like the Viktor and Rolf gown more than the gucci.

  15. MrsBPitt says:

    I never really found Anne very attractive…and to me they most attractive thing about her WAS her hair…so, for my sake Anne, please, grow your hair out stat!! Thanks…

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Agree. I don’t find her pretty at all with short hair, and I love short hair. I thought she was cute when her hair was longer.

  16. Lucy2 says:

    I like her party dress, and her event dress was ok, nothing amazing. I too am surprised she’s keeping her hair so short.

  17. Has she kept her hair short for a role???

  18. Valois says:

    I hate the first dress. hate hate hate the collar.

  19. The Original G says:

    She looks very nice in the Gucci. The Victor and Rolf makes her look like Joan Collins.

  20. Merritt says:

    I don’t care for either dress. I’ve never liked any dress with the neckline of the gown she wore to the show. That style of dress is just ugly to me.

  21. WendyNerd says:

    She looked awful. Awful, awful dress. Hate it.

  22. Ice Queen says:

    Love both dresses.

  23. M says:

    I LOVE her red carpet dress. I thought it was one of the better dresses I saw all night. But I really dislike the party dress – way too old lady for her

  24. Lucybelle says:

    I thought she was pregnant???
    Her husband must be TINY! She is not a big woman by any stretch of the imagination and she looks like she outweighs him by 50 pounds. How old is he? He looks to be in his 50s in this picture.

  25. shellybean says:

    I wish Anne would stop wearing that halter style cut on top. I don’t think it’s flattering on her. I don’t like her dress at all. And I’m beyond sick of her short hair. I wish she’d grow it back. I do love her second dress – the strapless black and white one. That is gorgeous on her.

  26. Maritza says:

    Both dresses are beautiful and I think short hair looks great on her.

  27. MCM says:

    I really like Anne, but I was not a huge fan of the top dress. It looked good, but as my sister put it, it was like she wore sparkly chest armor after last year’s dress. She still managed to look gorgeous. I just thought the dress was too much.

  28. willowtree1921 says:

    anne looks so much better with a little weight on her and hair that is slightly longer…she’s a beautiful woman and talented actress, i never understood the hate on her to be honest, but she looks so much healtier that way. These hollywood people are soooo thin (i am not thin shaming, just an observation) and it’s refreshing to see celebrities (meryl streep, j law, etc) who don’t seem to care about fitting into a size o. honestly, i am not trying to thin shame. I come from a family of naturally petite women (my mother didn’t weigh 100 until after TWO pregnancies).

  29. Aurelia says:

    Defo on the worse dressed list. On both accounts.

  30. lucy says:

    Anne looks like Eddie Munster these days. Hate the Oscar gown; I recommend she not ever wear halter style dresses — perhaps just not ones with ugly hardware dangling from the front? Prefer the after party gown, though it does look a bit staid.

  31. Steven says:

    I thought Anne Hathaway was the best dress of the Oscars 2014! Her graceful walk to the mike said it all for me. No other presenter came close. She’s no great beauty, and I think she knows it, but is a very good actress and know how to sell herself (play the game). In Hollywood that’s all you need to know. Bravo Anne.

  32. Vilodemeanus says:

    I personally prefer the Oscar dress to the Viktor & Rolf but they are both basic elegant dresses, and both were can’t go wrong picks. Her husband is certainly a petite man, isn’t he? I had no idea he was so perfectly pocket sized.
