Anne Hathaway in a Valentino sack dress at the Hollywood Film Awards: sort of cute?

Anne Hathaway attends The 22nd Annual Hollywood Film Awards in Los Angeles

Here are some photos from last night’s Hollywood Film Awards, an awards show I always forget about, probably because it isn’t televised live? And I’m pretty sure all of the award winners know that they’re going to win ahead of time – you can see the list of winners here at E!. Anne Hathaway wasn’t there to receive an award, it seems, she was just there to party and present, I think. She wore this Valentino sack dress which I… don’t really hate? It actually sort of suits her in a weird way.

Well look at wavy-haired Nicole Kidman! She’s been flat-ironing her hair for so long, I forgot what curly/wavy-haired Nic looked like. She looks younger like this, right? Nicole picked up an award “career achievement,” and she wore this Dior beaded dress. Her husband wore some of the most pronounced lifts I’ve ever seen.

Constance Wu in Rodarte. It feels a bit too fussy and prim, but I don’t flat-out hate it.

Shailene Woodley in Ralph and Russo OMG. The BANGS and the shorts and the cut-out. It’s all so awful. Maybe if she actually owned a TV, she would know that this is an absolutely disastrous look and clearly, her stylist hates her.

Taraji P. Henson in Brandon Maxwell. I’m okay with this? Again, I don’t love it. But it’s fine for a minor awards show.

Cute guys: Henry Golding, Michael B. Jordan and Mahershala Ali were all there and they looked great!

    Annie’s face looks gorgeous as usual, but that dress is hideous. Nothing redeeming to it. Taraji is always beautiful as well but the cut and color of this dress do not flatter her.

    • josephine says:

      Anne looks nice with a little age on her. I suspect the dress is because she gained some weight for a role and is trying to hide that a bit.

    • jan90067 says:

      She’s a beautiful woman; that dress does her no favors at all. If she’s trying to hide weight gain for a film, all this does is make her look bigger. Wonder if she’s hiding an early second pregnancy?

      The only “stellar” look, to me, is MBJ. Impeccable. I love Constance, but that dress… feh! Nicole’s face and hairstyle just don’t “connect” for me, for some reason. I do like the dress though. Mahershala’s and Henry’s suits don’t seem to fit properly. I know the fit is a slimmer cut for men now, but it looks so skimpy.

    • Lexilla says:

      I love Anne’s dress, because it’s beautiful in and of itself, and because it’s a reminder that women don’t need to put their bodies on display for our inspection. Let her be.

    • Lex says:

      I think Anne might be pregnant…

  2. Annie says:

    I agree it suits her more than it would many others but even so. It’s just ugly. … It makes such a WIDE silhouette with those sleeves and that pleated skirt. And the all white. Ugh.

  3. Lucy says:

    I will take the three men to go, please, thank you very much.

  4. Reloaded says:

    What an ugly dress! Never thought Valentino could create this monstrosity.

  5. Betsy says:

    Yes, Shailene Woodley’s stylist does hate her. Yikes.

    Also I feel a dummy, but I can’t tell lifts very well. I can see them in motion, but in stills I cannot.

    • Krakken says:

      Shailene!!! That look is a spangley vomit party. Puffy sleeves , peplum, cutout, solid horizontal black waist striping. A mess. Topping it with the greasy bangs was the final ‘wtf’. I know she doesn’t own a tv but surely there’s a mirror In Her home. This is what happens when ppl with plain Jane style decide to go nuts. Just no.

    • Ninks says:

      Why do we always blame the stylists. Like the actresses aren’t fully grown women with functioning eyes. They’re capable and allowed to say no thanks, especially the ones who aren’t tied to a contract with a fashion house.

  6. Erinn says:

    Anne having her hair like that makes her look younger. I honestly don’t like the dress, but she still manages to come off cute here.

  7. Lightpurple says:

    Anne’s dress looks like a novitiate’s habit but she actually looks fantastic.

    • Other Renee says:

      Light Purple, you took the words right out of my mouth! I was about to post the same thing! Add a few inches and you’ve got a nun’s habit.

    • Lilly says:

      I think it looks fantastic too. It’s so artistic as well. I also really like Shailene’s dress, against the odds – I’d change the belt, though.

  8. Lucy2 says:

    Anne looks good but that dress is awful.
    OMG Shailene. No.
    Taraji looks good.

  9. Lala11_7 says:

    I love the bold architectural sculpted outfits that Anne has been wearing lately!

  10. Mia4s says:

    The Hollywood Film Awards? I forgot about these!…..Hahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!

    This one they barely bother hiding that it’s studio and publicist dictated. And yet stars STILL have to show up and pretend to be flattered. Hilarious!

    Yeah Shailene Woodley must have dented her stylist’s new car or something. That’s a hideous outfit, even for this meaningless show.

  11. Esmom says:

    Anne’s hair and makeup are lovely, she’s just glowing, but the dress does not flatter. If it was slightly less baggy I might be on board with it for nostalgic reasons — the cut is very similar to a dress I wore to a high school dance in the 80s.

    I think Taraji’s dress is best.

    As for the guys, Henry Golding wins in the ensemble dept although they are all winners in the hot dept!

  12. janet says:

    The guys totally owned this post!!

  13. Redgrl says:

    Anne’s dress is from the handmaid’s tale fall collection. Yuk. Like Nicole Kidman ‘s dress – but she needs to go back to being a redhead! Shailene Woodley looks ludicrous.

  14. Elaine says:

    Wow and look how banging shailenes body is… her stylist hates her for sure

  15. manta says:

    “It actually sort of suits her”. For real?
    No it doesn’t, at all.

  16. Chaine says:

    These are dreadful dresses. Each of these women needs a new stylist. Love Henry Golding suit though.

    • josephine says:

      I love, love Henry’s suit, and he totally works it!

      I actually really like Nicole’s dress. It softens her a bit and she got the styling right in my opinion. Taraji’s dress is cool as well.

  17. CharliePenn says:

    I think Taraji looks amazing! Wow. What a stunner.

    I can’t with the lifts. You’re shorter than your wife, get over it. My husband is three inches shorter than me, so even more if I’m wearing heels, and guess what? We are confident and happy and fine with it, even enjoy the fact that we skew the “perfect couple” stereotype. I can’t imagine how tortured he would have to be by it to go get friggin lifts in his shoes. How ridiculous. Couples come in all shapes and sizes and a taller woman with a shorter husband looks fabulous.

  18. Abbess Tansy says:

    Taraji looks the best if a bit basic. Nicole looks her typical self, a dash of whimsy color/print, a teaspoon of funky tailoring.
    The men I can take off everyone’s hands 😊. You’re welcome.

    ETA: Henry Golding is wearing the same suit as Rami Malek here..
    https://www.gofugyourself.com/rami-malek-brings-out-another-great-suit-11-2018. Who wore it better?

  19. Morrissey says:

    From the header pic, it looks like Anne has pregnant face. And it suits her.

  20. BengalCat😻 says:

    Keith Urban needs to do something about his hair, he looks like a Tool.

  21. jj says:

    Keith Urban looks like a lesbian soccer mom dressed as Frankenstein for Halloween (those shoes!). No offence to lesbian soccer moms.

    Now to say something nice: Shailene Woodley has amazing legs.

  22. Miss Gloss says:

    All the women look terrible. I can’t even believe Anne Hathaway. Kidman fell flat (and frizzy). Constance Wu usually gets it right. Not this time. What in the world?!? And Henry Golding is so hot and ao charming…glad you’ve included him. I love him.

  23. Ninks says:

    I flat out hate Shailene’s look, don’t like Anne’s dress but she’s glowing so I think she gets away with it. I like the others although I think Constance’s just needs to be about 10% less fussy. The guys are A+.

  24. ophelia says:

    I have never liked what Valentino has provided for Anne. Her wedding dress, blech. Why he insists on draping her in bedsheets is beyond me. I know that RV is a “friend” but she needs to go with another designer.

  25. CityGirl says:

    In response to the header question: Nope, Nope Nope…..not at all.

    Ok, now I read

  26. Pandy says:

    Taraji and the men for the win … minus Keith’s lifts!

  27. Yvette says:

    Perhaps the dress is hiding a baby bump. :)

  28. Veronica S. says:

    Huh, I really like it! It’s just the right middle ground between structured and amorphous and makes for an interesting look. Be nice to see more unique silouhettes on the red carpet.

    Also: please NEVER go blonde again, Annie.

  29. Doodle says:

    Oooooh! Shailene’s outfit is BAD!
