Anne Hathaway has just wrapped up a triumphant awards season with an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. Yet I don’t remember seeing an Oscar winner face such backlash! First, everyone keeps making fun of Anne’s acceptance speeches. And the dress drama.
USA Today reported that Anne “freaked out” when she discovered Amanda Seyfried’s dress was very similar to the gown Anne planned to wear, which was designed by her good friend Valentino. So Anne chose to wear the Prada dress at the last minute. Valentino’s people had already released a press release stating she would wear their gown. Oops. This switch caused so much drama, Anne released a statement to People.
“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. Though I love the dress I did wear, it was a difficult last minute decision as I had so looked forward to wearing Valentino in honor of the deep and meaningful relationship I have enjoyed with the house and with Valentino himself. I deeply regret any disappointment caused.”
Let Anne enjoy her victory in peace! Here she is having lunch out with her husband, Adam Shulman.
