Anne Hathaway Wears Sexy Backless, Beaded Dress at Les Miserables London Premiere


Anne Hathaways back was front and center in London at the Wednesday Nov. 5  (sec) premiere of Les Miserables.Hitting the red carpet for the epic film musical based on the classic Broadway show, the newlywed star, 30, made a dramatic appearance in a white Givenchy gown featuring pearl details, draped, off-the-shoulder sleeves — and a rear hemline that completely exposed the actress back, famously slimmed down from rigorous dieting for the intense role.

Legendary Live Stream lets fans visit the TDKR Red Carpet Premiere

The Dark Knight Rises had its world premiere tonight in New York, the real Gotham City, at AMC Lincoln Square Theater which will go into full release July 20th.


Actors Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Morgan Freeman, Gary Oldman as well as director Christopher Nolan, brother and co-writer Jonathan Nolan, composer Hans Zimmer and others dazzled on the red carpet.

“Yeah, it’s bittersweet, but I think though that Chris is such a good storyteller, if he says it’s the right time to finish, it’s the right time to finish,” Bale told E! News at the premiere. “It’s nice to leave when we’re out on top instead of leaving people wanting less.”

Fans who were unable to attend in person could enjoy a live video stream on the Legendary Pictures website. Some of the twitter feed focused on early negative reviews at Rotten Tomatoes (“This is why we can’t have nice things”) but most fans were focused on the celebs, and certainly the fashions. Some of the women were understandably partisan on the relative merits of Anne Hathaway and Marion Cotillard.

“Anne Hathaway’s a vision in something white with a grecian back but didn’t catch the designer.”

“Figured the french woman would dress better”

“”Hate to be catty but Marion Cotillard is a fashion don’t on The Dark Knight Rises Premiere red carpet. Silhouette of a… paper doll?”

“yeah, not loving that white swan dress on her.”

While others noted Hathaway – delightfully long-haired in TDKR – now has her hair cropped uber-short for her next role as Fantine in Les Miserables.

The Dark Knight Rises is Christopher Nolan’s third and final installment of his Batman trilogy, starring Christian Bale (Batman/Bruce Wayne), Anne Hathaway (Selina Kyle/Catwoman), Tom Hardy (Bane), Gary Oldman, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, and other Nolan alums Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Marion Cotillard, released by Warner Bros. July 2012

Before Selina/Hepburn there was Anne/Oscar: Dressing Anne Hathaway for the Academy Awards, tonight on The Rachel Zoe Project

Now that we’ve seen glimpses of the elegance, style and class Selina Kyle is to evoke in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, the timing of her hosting Academy Awards within days of her being announced for the role of Selina/Catwoman has a new significance.  “Was this the first subliminal signal that class and style, elegance and privilege were finally to be returned to the Feline Fatale?” we wondered.

Anne Hathaway was announced to host the Academy Awards within days of the news breaking that she would play Selina Kyle/Catwoman in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises

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.

TDKR’s Marion Cotillard promoting Contagion

Last month saw Anne Hathaway (Selina Kyle, Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises) cutting a swath through late night talk shows, fashion magazines and red carpets as she promoted her latest movie One Day.  This week, two other TDKR cast members and Nolan alums, Marion Cotillard (Miranda Tate) and Tom Hardy (Bane) are promoting their new flicks Contagion and Warrior.

Cotillard, though usually a classic beauty, doesn’t make nearly as good a showing as Hathaway on the red carpet…

And her appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Kimmel, while pleasant enough, lacked the charisma and next day ‘net appeal of Anne Hathaway rapping about the paparazzi on Conan.

Location Photos from The Dark Knight Rises: Hathaway/Selina turning heads

We’ve been talking a lot about the beautiful Anne Hathaway’s fashion triumphs on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, and on the red carpet premiering her latest movie in the US and Europe. She’s got nothing on Selina Kyle, her alter ego (and Catwoman’s) who is seen in these new photos from the Los Angeles set of Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises.  Her exquisitely tailored suit and uber-fashionable hat are a far cry from the ill-fitting home-made looking frocks sported by Michelle Pfeifer’s Selina in Tim Burton’s Batman Returns.

We don’t know if Selina is turning Bruce Wayne’s head, but since the camera is visible in at least one of Just Jared’s pics of Christian Bale, we know Ms. Hathaway has turned his.

The Ladies of The Dark Knight Rises fashion: Anne Hathaway for TODs

The women of Gotham City – the actresses of Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises – are beautiful,  glamorous and sexy.  They are a natural choice to be the face of top fashion brands, and Anne Hathaway, starring as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, has been the face of the summer and modeling the best-known designers in Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, Interview Magazine, not to mention the red carpet premieres of her new movie One Day.  The TODs signature collection simply could not have chosen a sexier lady to be their “IT GIRL”  as these photos by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot make more than clear.

“We see a stunningly exquisite Anne as a classic beauty with a modern Italian edge — feminine and strong.”

It Girl, meet It Bag. Anne Hathaway works her magic in new ads for TOD’s Signature Collection, a soon-to-launch line of bags and small leather goods hitting TOD’s boutiques in October.

Shot in London by photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the ads will also bow in October, appearing in fashion magazines worldwide. “The campaign for TOD’s Signature reaches out to a new and younger clientele,” creative director Fabien Baron said in a release, adding that Hathaway was the right woman for the job. “We see a stunningly exquisite Anne as a classic beauty with a modern Italian edge — feminine and strong.”

Hathaway, for her part, is honored to be associated with the brand. “I have been a longtime fan of TOD’s and was very excited to be a part of exploring a new side of their identity with the launch of their Signature Collection,” she added. “The designs are classic and the materials are of the highest quality.”

The handbags themselves — a shoulder bag, portfolio clutch, shopper, pochette and more — feature a pebble motif and come in colors like deep red, fuchsia, lavender and beige. Made in Italy, they’re crafted from a variety of materials, including soft patent leather, a metalized leather, shiny calfskin and semi-opaque nappa leather.
