There’s been much ado about Hathaway’s too boyish hair cut, panti-less paparazzi limo shot a few months ago and the unfortunate bust darts of her last-minute decision pink Prada gown. Maison Valentino could not have been pleased as only hours before they had confirmed her choice of a Valentino gown for the event. Ooops! According to British Vogue, the actress’ publicist issued an apology.
Fast forward to the morning after and a truly unfortunate sighting in Beverly Hills. Maybe it’s all as simple as the actress having horrible taste. She wouldn’t be the first major movie star to lack the style gene. Think Liz Taylor or Merryl Streep or Jane Fonda and Oscar ceremonies in the pre-stylist days. Calling Rachel Zoe…
From Vogue UK:
“Confusion first arose when Maison Valentino released a statement only hours before the red carpet began, confirming that they were to be dressing the actress in a couture gown – as well as Jennifer Aniston and Sally Field. However, when Hathaway arrived at the Dolby Theatre, it quickly became apparent that she was wearing a pale pink Prada column dress. She told press: “I didn’t know what I was wearing until two hours ago. I tried on a lot of dresses, but at the end of the day, I loved the simplicity of it.”
“It came to my attention late Saturday night that there would be a dress worn to the Oscars
that is remarkably similar to the Valentino I had intended to wear, and so I decided it was best for all involved to change my plans,” said Hathaway. “Though I love the dress I did wear, it was a difficult last-minute decision as I had so looked forward to wearing Valentino in honour of the deep and meaningful relationship I have enjoyed with the house and with Valentino himself. I deeply regret any disappointment caused.”
