Pairs Division: Hathaway & Seyfried
Fantine and Cosette went to a party! That sounds like the opening line to a children’s book, but in fact, it’s an open invitation to judge two actresses in a bitchy, life-affirming manner! Allons-y!
Anne Hathaway and Amanda Seyfried attend ‘Les Misérables’ New York Screening After Party. Anne Hathaway wore a The Row dress paired with a Jessica Robinson bracelet and a Graziela ring. and Amanda Seyfried wore a Marios Schwab dress paired with Rupert Sanderson shoes.

From the left:
SHE: Is wearing the curtains from a storefront fortune-teller’s parlour. Forget (for a moment) the bizarre W neckline, which is probably some sort of subliminal message like “WINNER – of the Best Supporting Actress Oscar!” Forget the fact that this dress uses roughly three times the amount of fabric it actually needs to; instead, focus on the fact that SHE IS SPORTING BALL FRINGE ON HER ARMS. BALL FRINGE, DARLINGS.
Oh, we can’t. Nothing else need be said. Score: 4/10. And that’s us being kind. This dress is hiddy. A nightgown with a fucked-up neckline and ball fringe.
SHE: Looks kind of nice. We’re not inclined to love a look that’s so colorless and washed-out, but it matches her eyes, which are are her best, most noticeable feature, so it makes sense to play them up. Besides, it has a lot of visual interest going on in the bodice. Some might say it has a bit too much going on there, but the fact that the dress is so neutral keeps it from going overboard. Her hair and makeup are pretty, and suitably toned down to go with the dress. We think any more makeup would have overwhelmed her face here. Our one real complaint is with this shoes. That was her opportunity to punctuate all this paleness with something a little bold, but she went the safe and boring route on that front. And for that, she gets a … Score: 7/10. Some jewelry would have been a good idea too.
Combined Score: 5.5/10. Amanda, feel free to spend the night plucking balls off Anne’s dress and throwing them at her.
