The biggest shock on the Oscar Awards red carpet? Anne Hathaway in a Prada gown. The actress is a firm fan of Valentino and has often worn his feminine, frothy creations to awards ceremonies past so was expected to turn to the Italian designer for her big night. In fact, Mr Valentino apparently also believed she would be championing his designs yet again. 'I didn't know what I was wearing until about three hours a go,' the actress revealed. 'This was the one that spoke to me in the end.'
Either way, it's a fine choice for the star who's nominated for her supporting role in Les Miserables. The column gown is tres sophisticated, sleek and elegant while the pale pink colour is very pretty - but let's be honest, we wanted a little drama from our Hathers. At least the cross-over straps and bow at the back add a little more interest and is that a side boob we spy?
Anne's kept the look very simple thanks to a pale pink lip and with her crop swept to one side. As for the jewels, she's wearing a sparkling necklace that drapes down her back with matching bracelets. She's also due to perform as part of a musical tribute to the film, which is nominated for no less than eight Oscars, so expect to see a quick change during the ceremony.
Speaking of her recent wedding, for which she DID wear Valentino, Anne says, 'I found my soulmate and we commited ourselves to each other and that's the best thing better.' Cute-a-rama! 'I don't have a movie scheduled till [Autumn] so I have some scrabble nights coming.' See? She's just like us.
