Anne Hathaway ditched her go-to designer Valentino at the Oscars 2013 because his dress was too similar to Amanda Seyfried’s, according to reports.

The Les Miserables actress left her favourite designer – who designed her wedding dress – high and dry after freaking out when she saw her co-star’s frock.

Valentino sent out a press release on the day of the Oscars saying the 30-year-old actress was among the stars he was dressing for the red carpet.

“Valentino just announced its red carpet lineup for tonight: Look for Sally Field, Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Aniston, all in couture,” wrote Eric Wilson, fashion reporter for The New York Times.

But it seems the Les Mis star had a change of heart once she’d had a look at co-star Amanda Seyfried’s red carpet choice.

The actress reportedly ‘freaked out’ when she caught a glimpse of Amanda’s lacy Alexander McQueen gown and ordered stylist Rachel Zoe to change her outfit.

On the red carpet, Anne revealed her Oscars red carpet look had indeed been a last-minute decision.

“I didn’t know what I was wearing until two hours ago,” she told WWD.

In fact, her last-minute decision may have lost her fashion points as she had a wardrobe malfunction – although she still looked stunning.

Anne’s nipples could be seen through the gown and were the talking point of the Oscars the next day.

We’ve had a look at the Valentino SS13 Couture collection and one gown in particular looks very similar to Amanda Seyfried’s Oscars frock.

Is this the gown Anne Hathaway ditched in favour of Prada?
