Les Mis Page 1
You’d think that being in the very city where Les Misérables takes place might inspire Oscar nominee Anna Hathaway to step it up in the fashion department, but it looks to us like she folded under the pressure.
A starvation diet of dried oatmeal paste would probably turn the best of us into grouchy, miserable monsters. Last night on Chelsea Lately, Anne Hathaway ‘fessed up to being precisely that while losing 25 pounds for the role of Fantine in Les Mis.
Anne Hathaway is putting quite the concerted effort into her edgy red carpet ensembles lately, isn’t she? First she chose a contentious Givenchy Couture batwing beaded number for the London premiere of Les Misérables and last night she stepped out in a full look from Tom Ford‘s spring collection — right down to the bondage-inspired boots-cum-sandals.
Asking us to choose between Balenciaga and Givenchy is usually like asking us to pick a favorite child…you know, if we had children. But at tonight’s world premiere of Les Misérables in London, Anne Hathaway and Amanda Seyfried stepped out dressed to the nines in creations by Riccardo Tisci and Nicolas Ghesquiére, and, in a strange turn of events, we weren’t particularly blown away by either look.
