A Look Back at Anne Hathaway’s Oscar Looks, the epitome of class, elegance and glamor
With the latest pictures of Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle evoking the elegance, style and grace of Hepburn (Katherine, Audrey or both depending on who you talk to), it might be a good time to revisit Anne’s eye-popping appearance hosting the Academy Awards, dressed in perfect look after perfect look by the incomparable Rachel Zoe. At the time, everyone wondered where this strange hosting choice came from, but a savvy few noted the announcement of the Oscar gig came within days of the news that Hathaway would be playing Selina Kyle, the Catwoman, in Christopher Nolan’s third and final Batman epic The Dark Knight Rises. Was this the first subliminal signal that class and style, elegance and privilege were finally to be returned to the Feline Fatale?
Let’s see. (Thanks in advance to Entertainment Weekly’s Popwatch for explaining this fashion stuff to us poor ignorant males.) We see Givenchy and Tiffany’s (even we know those names), Oscar de la Renta, Versace, Jimmy Choo, Armani, Vivienne Westwood and Tom Ford.
