While, “The King’s Speech,” Christian Bale, “The Social Network,” Colin Firth, “Inception” and Helena Bonham-Carter looking normal for once, might be the talk of Tinsel Town, fashionistas everywhere are in awe of none other than Anne Hathaway.
While, she may share her name with William Shakespeare’s wife, old school, out-dated and “so over,” are in a land far, far, away.
Many women who get invited to attend the Oscars stress over the one perfect dress to wear.
But Hathaway, styled by Rachel Zoe (we dieeee!), wore seven enchanting ensembles, plus, one extra on the red-carpet for good measure.
Dress after dress, Hathaway looked graceful, fun and pulled off each outfit with ease and poise.
Oh, how we love you Amelia Mignonette Thermopolis Renaldi, Crown Princess of Genovia.
It might be safe to say, that Anne Hathaway and her many dresses stole the show!
On the red carpet, Hathaway wore a scarlet Valentino gown from the archives, with matching nails and lips.
When James Franco appeared in drag (channeling his inner Madonna? Or Marilyn?), the “Princess Diaries” star wore a custom pair of Brian Atwood pumps to match her Lavin tux as she crooned about how Hugh Jackman ditched her and didn’t sing a second duet with her at the ceremony.
In a very true princess dress, Hathaway wore a gray Vivienne Westwood couture gown, which was exquisite.
Our favourite dress, was the Oscar de la Renta, 1920s-inspired-meets-1970s-fringed golden gown, that Hathway shimmed around too.
She then stepped out in an electric blue, off-the-shoulder, cobalt custom satin dress from the Armani PrivÃ© Couture collection.
At times it reminded us of plastic, but she was gorgeous, so we can forgive that because shortly after she graced the Oscar stage wearing a breath-taking, strapless, flowing, burgundy gown from Atelier Versace.
And as if Hathaway could do no wrong, she ended her parade of fashion in an amazing, fitted Tom Ford gunmetal, lace and crystal gown.
Entertainment Weekly was able to catch up with Rachel Zoe, who is 9-months pregnant, about styling the star and she said,
The clothes weren’t only custom and couture, but they actually had to be functional.
She had to be able to move. Brian Atwood made her these incredible custom shoes she wore with her Lanvin tuxedo.
As beautiful as they are, we had to make sure she could dance in them, move in them.
Thankfully, she could. But there’s fashion and there’s, okay, I don’t want her to fall. You have to be strategic, and we really had to run through the show several times and go through the order.
Make sure she doesn’t have two red dresses in the show and she has one white, then one blue, then black, then one red, because you don’t want to be redundant.
You also wanted to make sure it was appropriate.
We did Tom Ford for the finale because it was long sleeve, and she was singing with children.
You just want to be appropriate.
Needless to say, before her impending mini-sabbatical, aka having a baby, Rachel Zoe went out with a bang!
Andrea Sachs may not have been a nominee, but you better believe, she was theÂ shining light of the show.
Miranda Priestley, or should I say, Anna Wintour would be proud!
James Franco…well,…umm…. we have no comment.
