Anne Hathaway wore a pink Prada that was majorly criticised as a ‘disater’ by Hollywood’s fashion police. But then Anne had to do a last minute change an opt for the Prada number that she wore for the Oscars. She was supposed to wear a specially-made Valentino gown to the Oscars. Anne had learned the night before the Oscars that Amanda Seyfried was going to be wearing an Alexander McQueen gown that resembled her Valentino.
The inside details of Anne Hathaway’s dress-drama was revealed by US Weekly:
“US Weekly has brand-new details on what went down between Les Miserables costars Anne Hathaway and Amanda Seyfried the day before the Academy Awards — and caused a panicked Hathaway to ditch her planned Valentino gown in favor of a Prada creation for her Oscar-winning night.
An insider close to the situation tells US Weekly that Hathaway learned during an Oscar rehearsal at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre on Saturday, Feb. 22 that Seyfried planned to wear a dress notably similar to hers to the ceremony. After Hathaway asked about her pal’s dress, Seyfried graciously shared an iPhone snap of the Alexander McQueen creation.”
It’s not ANNE’s fault nor is it Valentino’s fault that Amanda Seyfried wore a Sarah Burton/McQueen gown, which was so strikingly similar. But I just get the feeling that Anne was and is so incredible Nautanki Saali that when one part of her Oscar strategy faltered (the dress!), it felt like her whole world was crashing down. Here’s what I don’t get though – why did Anne end up picking that terrible Prada? Surely she had better back-up options than that?
