Well Played, Anne Hathaway


well-played

I wish I had found a slightly more direct photo of this in our subscriptions, but such is life. We can’t always get what we want. To wit: There is no ham sandwich in my hand.

However, other than the fact that I think she may be wearing hose (of which I am not a particular fan, if they can be avoided, which I believe they could have here), this Dark Knight Rises afterparty frock is cute on Anne. It really fits the swingin’ mod look she’s working with the pixie cut. That may have been a primary problem with her very first gown of the tour, the white one: It just really clashed with her current vibe. And whether she herself is happy with the hair or not, you’ve got to play the proverbial cards you are dealt. In Hollywood you can probably even cheat a little. You almost always have a couple helpful extras, like an ace and a Queen, taped to the inside of your sleeve or glued to the underside of your purse: Most people can’t snap their fingers and make a dress that fits their new coif materialize, but Anne Hathaway probably could, and maybe even did right here. I wish she’d keep it up. Work the theme, girl. It doesn’t have to be forever, but it’s better than parading around like something scented you put in a panty drawer.

    It fits her hair and her body! (Unlike that gold-colored sack.)

    Look closely, she’s wearing (attractively too!) sheer hosiery! :)

    I would like to respectfully request that male fan of GFY spend a day wearing sheer hosiery :-)

      I wear everyday and it’s not a problem for me. To each their own I guess. I like Anne’s look from head to toe. Very classy and polished.

    Someone please help me out here! I hate hosiery too, but I have to wear them with pumps (never open-toed shoes) otherwise my feet hurt like hell! Am I totally flouting style conventions by insisting on wearing hoes so my feet don’t suffer more than necessary?

    Nothin’ wrong with hose (other than a stupid term); they provide a valuable service.

    Really cute dress. She wears this well. And although I like short hair, I would rather see her with her long, gorgeous locks. I read somewhere that she was quite traumatized with the cut.

    Absolutely fab. Cut the girl some slack on the hose. Maybe she didn’t want sticky feet in pumps. (Is it just me, or does she look like Liza with a Z, circa 1971, which was just on Showtime last week ?).

    I also will wear hose to cover up my legs. Especially if I have a bruise or something.

    There is no ham in my sandwich; and there was no Hamm serving me my sandwich :( But that dress is adorbs.

    This is great. From this picture, I’m not necessarily getting a strong Mod vibe, but I’m certainly no expert. I probably have too restrictive of an idea of it (imagine Laugh-In and Emma Peel from the original Avengers tv series). Anyway, I love the fit and the embroidery, but most of all, I love that piping or whatever at the bottom that runs up to the waist. Sort of has a art smock feel, but I think it’s neat and adds interest. Also, the sort of antique-y feeling of the embroidery contrasts nicely with the modern shape.

    A soupcon of Chinese hostess, a dash of wallpaper, a touch of Liza with a splash of Garland’s shoes- yet, she looks great!

    Those shoes are a bit tragic, and I do wish she’d have some fun with the ‘do (you can texture it up and go the full Liza, girl! When will you ever get to do that again?) but that dress is gorgeous. I look at it and weep to think how much I’d resemble an over-stuffed couch in it but she looks utterly fab in it.

      I actually think the shoes are fabulous — I just think they look super fabulous because of the flashes from the camera, but the shape is totally classic and if they are in fact charcoal grey, then they’re super useful.

        That second fabulous in the first sentence should have been shiny. Sentence construction fail.

    The print is fab in a Florence Broadhurst-ian way, and I love a dress with sleeves, but where is her waist, and why is she wearing my Mum’s shoes?

    pantyhose are always hideous.
    they remind me of old ladies.
    really horrid even on great legs.
    ick.

      Try not to be so dismissive of “old ladies,” dear. You’ll be one yourself someday, if you’re lucky.

    It’s an improvement from the past few flocks.

    I loved the 1st white dress & I love this one as well, it really is flattering on her! LOVE the shoes, they’re my favorite color and go beautifully with the dress! And, this is another outfit I can see Michelle Williams wearing!

    Anyone who wants to wear hosiery should be allowed to do so without commentary. Their body, their decision.

      Isn’t commenting on what somone is wearing the whole point of this site?

    Totally agree with you, Tagatha. As a 50 year old woman, I try and avoid hose when I can but – there are times when NOT wearing them renders one akin to Phyllis Diller. For those too young to know who she is – do an internet search!

    What’s wrong with hose???? They make all women’s legs look better than they otherwise would look–and few women past the age forty have legs good enough to remain uncovered by either stockings or pants.
