Confusingly Played, Anne Hathaway


ANNE HATHWAY: So, what’s the deal here?

VALENTINO: For the last time, I JUST LIKE TO BE TAN, ALL RIGHT? I WANT TO BE TAN. I WANT TO BE THE COLOR OF A BURNISHED COFFEE TABLE. I WANT TO BE THE COLOR OF A DELICIOUS MAPLE DANISH. I WANT –

ANNE: No. What’s the deal with this EVENT? I know about your tanning thing.

VALENTINO: Ah. Apologies. People are usually just so….

ANNE: I know.

VALENTINO: But yeah. I don’t know.

ANNE: What do you mean?

VALENTINO: What do YOU mean?

ANNE: Why am I dressed like this? I can’t tell what the hell the dress code was at this party.

VALENTINO: It’s called the The White Fairy Tale Love Ball.

ANNE: WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? Is it a ball celebrating fairytale love at which we are all supposed to wear white? Is it something called a “Tale Love Ball” for someone called the White Fairy, and if so, is she going to kill us all?

VALENTINO: I think that’s the White Witch.

ANNE: Well. That’s a relief. But if it’s a White….Love…Ball thing, why are some people wearing red?

VALENTINO: We are raising money for parks for underprivileged Russian children!

ANNE: So it’s….COMMUNIST?

VALENTINO: No! Red is for the HEART. I think. Also, I am famous for red dresses, and it’s my house, so…

ANNE: Okay. So you really have no idea what’s going on?

VALENTINO: Not really.

ANNE: And it MIGHT be weird that I’m wearing this thing on my head, and it might not be weird?

VALENTINO: Honestly, it probably is at least a little weird.

ANNE: …I just hope there’s an open bar.

    Didn’t she already wear this in “Alice in Wonderland”? Kidding aside, the dress is pretty enough, but the snow theme seems weird for summer. Also, what’s that thing on her head?

    Completely out of place during the summer (including that bacground), but nice dress + extremely tan designer + party at his mansion = fun!

    The background and the dress make it look like she’s filming a Jane Austen adaptation.

    Not only is the thing on her head weird, her make-up is totally out of control. Why did she suddenly decide to slap the paint on with a trowel?

    This entire photo confuses me. And, the makeup enhances her already large features in a really bad way.

    This photo makes her arm look extra long or is it the high waist? What’s up? The dress is pretty… for a Snow White movie adaption. And Valentino: words fail me!

    I agree with LoriK and Kristin. Anne has a lot of face, and the way she’s thrown shovelfuls makeup on all of it everywhere just makes me want to pull a blanket over my head.

    I think she does look pretty from the neck down, though.

    Not crazy about Anne’s hair here. I know the headpiece and hair is supposed to fit with the theme, but the overall look is a bit wilted. Maybe it’s really humid in Paris and it started out better. Her makeup is waaaay too severe for an ensemble that is obviously supposed to look so ethereal. She is too pretty to put so much on her face.

    As for the dress, I saw it elsewhere and it is a vintage Valentino (thus, her costar in this photo) It’s a very pretty dress and the silhouette is indeed very turn of the 19th century, but I associate what looks like smocking in the bodice area with children’s clothes. I think if I had seen this on Hailee Steinfeld, I’d be screaming with delight and nodding with approval at it’s appropriateness for a teenager.

    Not her best look. Anne Hathaway doesn’t look good either.

    An odd photo. She doesn’t look like herself. And her arms look too long for some inexplicable reason.

    This dress screams high school production of Midsummer Night’s Dream, starring Anne Hathaway as Titania!

    I think that’s the dress that was in the documentary about Valentino (the last emperor I think it was called?). He made a big deal about whether to have those ruffle-y things on every pleat or every 2.

    What the Sam Hill is with her tiara-headband-crown thingie? There’s a gold watch face over her left temple, amongst the groovy sixties flowers in crystal. The dress is interesting, but I’m unsure if I like the uniformity of all the vertical skirt ruffles. She has on the entire Woolworth’s makeup counter, too, which is hardly necessary.

    And I’ve learned some things about Valentino: 1. he has a last name and 2. “Crespierre” is what to exclaim when you see a tan like that.

    Oh yes, that makeup is TERRIBLE. I think the head thing could have worked better with a different hair style. The dress is pretty, but I’m not sure I like it on Anne.

    Can’t lie, I was totally hoping this was a Vegas Wedding. THAT would make this week entertaining.

    The whole thing, from the makeup to the headpiece that looks like a five year old made it, looks like a back alley version of the Snow scene in The Nutcracker.

    Put her on the Fug Madness list right now. Then send her to wash her face and put on something decent.

    Am I the only one who thinks they look like a bridal couple? Creepy.

    TOO MUCH MAKEUP! Such a beautiful dress! She is supposed to look natural and ethereal. Not wax-lipped with goth eye liner. Yuck

    I try and I try but sh*t like this really re-enforces my total DIS-LIKE for her

    I was wondering why she looked short – I’ve never seen Anne Hathaway look short – but I’m thinking that, like others have pointed out, it’s that her arms look long? Also, amen to what Molly said!

    It is so hard to make her look bad, yet somebody succeeded!

    It’s like evil Woolworth’s fairies chopped her off at the ankles, then while she was all distracted with the pain manhandled her into 16 pounds of slap and a cheap Halloween costume.

    Oh my God. Worst hair ever.

    EVER.

    Goodness! Apparently nobody bothered to find out anything about this event before opinionizing. Because once you’re familiar with the theme and plans for the evening, it all makes sense.

    But then there might have been less opportunity for snark-waving . . . . god forbid.

    I am sorry, I don’t mean to snark (here comes the snark)… but what is up with her visage? Everything looks so … chalky and macabre. And not just the make up. I’m scared. Someone hold me.

    I keep tripping over the slap on her face. How did we get back to 1977 in the makeup department? (No, really, go check out old Vogue covers.) Valentino was there–he could TELL her 34 years aren’t enough.

    Also, I really wonder if her knees are bent. Normally she TOWERS over him.

    My God, I’ve never seen someone who usually looks so beautiful look so, um, horsey. It must be the hair. Dress is very average, possibly stunning in about 1986. Valentino is now officially a marionette of himself. And a maitre d’ marionette at that.

    Cathy: yep, it’s that dress, alright. Although I can’t remember if the ruffles had those sparkly edges originally. That’s it, have to dig out the DVD and find out.

    This dress was on a Rachel Zoe episode wasn’t it?

    Isn’t this the dress he was making in the the doc ‘Valentino: the last emperor’?

    Ok, I have two things to say: Why Valentino is so orange? And Anne, your dress is awesome, but It would be even more fabulous, if you had a different hairstyle and make up.
