The pressures of hosting the Oscars – especially when you’re the youngest host in the awards’ history – must have got to Anne Hathaway’s wardrobe at the 83rd Academy Awards last night.
With no less than eight outfit changes, she left little room for disappointment in the sartorial stakes, switching between a vintage Valentino here and an Aetelier Versace couture there thanks to Rachel Zoe’s styling assistance. Sure, she didn’t break barriers, but she name-dropped enough designers to be worthy of an Oscar herself.
Here’s a breakdown of what she wore – let us know which look you loved best in the poll below.
Arriving on the arm of the designer, Anne arrived on the red carpet in a red Valentino gown – from the label’s couture archive, no less.
Taking to the stage to kick-start the ceremony, Anne chose an ivory chiffon gown with crystal embellishment by Givenchy Couture.
From Goddess to guy, a quick change into a le smoking-style tuxe from Lanvin and crystal Brian Atwood pumps broke up Anne’s gaggle of gorgeous gowns (albeit briefly).
Back to the ballgowns – Anne slipped into a black corset feather-printed tiered dress by Vivienne Westwood for her third look.
He was missed on the red carpet last night, but Anne championed the iconic American designer in a metallic gold form-fitting dress with flapper-style fringing (which she demonstrated with a shimmy).
Back to red – this time wine coloured – in a strapless floor-length gown with embellishment across the bodice by Aetelier Versace
Swapping shimmer for simplicity, Anne changed into a gloss-finished cobalt blue column dress by Armani Prive for her penultimate look.
In the ultimate show-stopper, a high-necked, long-sleeved black lace with heavy crystal embellishment by Tom Ford finished Anne’s final look of the evening.
