Anne Hathaway’s explanation on Feb. 27 for why she went to the Oscars in Prada instead of Valentino was more than a little cryptic, but now we have the whole truth! Keep reading for more details on Anne’s dress meltdown!
Have you ever been totally excited to wear a dress to your prom, only to be devastated when you show up and another girl is wearing the same dress? Well, Anne Hathaway knows how you feel.
The Les Miserables actress was sent over the edge the day before the Oscars when she learned that her co-star Amanda Seyfried’s Alexander McQueen dress looked very similar to the Valentino gown she planned to wear.
Anne Hathaway Throws A Fit
“Anne was like WTF!” a source tells Us Weekly. Reportedly, the actress couldn’t control her anger and began to throw a fit right in the middle of the Les Mis dress rehearsal! “Amanda didn’t want to deal with it and left,” the source adds.
Anne’s drama continued into Oscar Sunday, Feb. 24, when she decided not to wear the Valentino dress and find a new one altogether! “Anne made the fashion, make up, hair, and jewelry teams wait at her home for hours as she decided what to do about the dress debacle,” a second source explains.
Anne Hathaway’s Prada Dress Debacle
She eventually landed on a Prada-made gown, and the rest is history. The pale pink satin gown fit awkwardly, and made it look like Anne’s nipples were poking out the whole night. She was apparently so horrified by the whole mess that she surprisingly released a statement in apology.
The statement was very general and didn’t name names: “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.” Now we know who she was referring to!
What we don’t get is, why didn’t she just wear her dress as planned? Having a similar dress as someone at an event where there are hundreds of dresses surely can’t be the tragedy that Anne made it out to be. Doesn’t switching up her gown last-minute — and then releasing a statement afterwards — just make Anne look like a petty diva?
