That Anne Hathaway. She’s a perky little thing, isn’t she?
Well, part of her is perky. Make that parts. Two parts, specifically, standing at attention in all of their perky glory at the Oscars Sunday night.
Adding her name to a long list of “really rich women who for some reason forget to look in their mirrors before leaving home and show up at awards shows in really awful dresses,” Hathaway took this year’s “Oh my god, what was she thinking” prize when she and her boobs appeared at the Oscars in an ill fitting dress with darts that appeared constructed to intentionally point directly to Annie’s…well, nipples.
In ABC’s before the red carpet show, Hathaway was interviewed by Kristin Chenowith (who, despite her glorious singing voice has one of the most grating speaking voices on record) in a pre-Oscar program designed to showcase the stars’ red carpet fashion. Chenowith and Hathaway spoke for several minutes, but I have no idea what either said, as I couldn’t take my eyes off Anne’s chest.
Madonna’s cone bra was more subtle.
I doubt Hathaway intended to add an NC-17 element on what turned out to be her big night, but her breasts were driving the evening on their own terms.
Standing at attention and pointing like a hound that’s just flushed out a pheasant when Hathaway was still, the happy-go-lucky girls bounced and flounced around when she mounted the stage steps to accept her Supporting Actress Oscar. Apparently, there wasn’t enough money left after making the dress to put a bra in it. (I’ll bet that little statue was smiling from ear-to-ear while being clutched to Annie’s chest after she won.)
There are red carpet dresses designed to flaunt stars’ assets. Think J-Lo’s slit to the navel green Versace creation from the 2000 Grammy awards. While that dress was awful, at least it was designed that way. We were supposed to gasp in horror when we saw it.
Unfortunately, Hathaway’s dress was meant to be breathtaking, but ended up looking like some fifteen-year-old’s Home Ec project. Grade: D.
The thing that most befuddles me? Hathaway said that her mother had seen the dress, refering to it as something in front (I can’t remember exactly what she said, I was looking at her boobs) and a party in the back.
Why the heck didn’t her mother say something? Something along the lines of, “Oh my god, you cannot possibly wear that! Everyone can see your nipples!” I mean, isn’t that what mothers do–mortify their children for their own good? Better to be mortified in private by mom than in front of a billion people on television.
Still, I suppose women everywhere should thank Hathaway. One of the great things about awards shows is that some star always does something ridiculous that makes we mere mortal women feel just a little bit better about ourselves.
This year, it was Anne. Or more accurately, her perky boobs–of which I am a bit envious, of course. Maybe she was right to show them off. She’s young, just married, no kids.
Enjoy it while it lasts, Annie. Trust me, they won’t look like that forever.

Well, I don’t know about anyone having it in for Anne, as I thought her performance in Les Miz was incredible and certainly worthy of her Oscar win. But I still think the dress looked like a bad Home Ec project. And, well, I couldn’t take my eyes off where those darts pointed. Let’s face it, when you’re in that profession, it’s all about how you look. When Hathaway gets it right, she’s stunning. But her mom should have told her to take that damn thing off!
PS – on Kristin Chenoweth’s speaking voice I completely agree with you.
Seriously? I thought the media made a lot more fuss over this dress than was warranted – sounds more like Anne ticked some Hollywood royalty off and they told their friends to find something to pile on about. Maybe because she actually let her hair be sheared on film for Les Mis? Not many celebs would have done that. Or because she sang her song live for the film, acted beautifully throughout the song, and with no autotune? Certainly none of them would try that – I mean, even Beyonce pre-recorded her national anthem for her ‘live’ performance. No, I think someone in Hwood got shown up big time and thought they’d let her have it in front of a national audience. For a crowd that knowingly dresses in tinsel in public, to make fun of dress darts is pretty ridiculous.
too funny. I thought the very same thing—couldn’t take my eyes off her pointy boobs–reminded me of those 40’s glamour looks, only it’s 2013. And Chenoworth? She bugs the crap out of me!
