Anne Hathaway in Valentino Couture
We haven’t judged Miss Annie in a while and since this is an eminently judgable look, we feel the need to give her the attention her ongoing poledance demands.
Although truthfully, doesn’t it feel like she’s pulled back on the reins in the last couple of weeks? We suspect the perception that she’s campaigning too hard for the Oscar has caused her to press pause.

We like the dress a lot, although we think a more tailored shape would suit her better. We REALLY don’t like the winter-wedding bridesmaid shoes. The makeup is nicely downplayed, which is the right way to go, given how busy the dress is. But the real story here is the hair, from which we initially recoiled, and then tripped over each other running to get our copy of “The Bitchy Fashion Blogger’s Guide to Analogies and References” to find some way to describe it. It’s a little … kindergarten teacher, no? A little bit PTA? Nun-out-of-habit? Golf tour? Political wife? Christmas sweater?
What we’re trying to say is… we don’t think it’s particularly chic. Kinda works against the dress.
Convince us otherwise.
