Anne Hathaway's 'Les Mis' Premiere Look: Love It or Leave It?

Confession: We’ve spent all morning talking about the dress Anne Hathaway selected for the Les Misérables world premiere in London on Wednesday.

The star chose a very busy pearl-beaded white Givenchy number with some serious sleeves for her big night that has just left all of us wondering, “What is going on here?”

Granted, there are a few things that we love about her look: The color is gorgeous and the open back is romantic.

Though with the good comes the bad: The all-over pearl beading is just overwhelming, the sleeves remind us of bat wings (maybe she was paying homage to her Dark Knight role?) and the open-shoulder halter neckline just does not work with everything else going on.

We do have to give Hathaway props for wearing something risky and unexpected (we certainly don’t think we’ll see this in a Fashion Faceoff anytime soon), but we wish she had chosen something a bit less over-the-top. Tell us: Do you like Hathaway’s dress? Vote below?

love the dress, except for the batwings– which make it look like the dress is weighted down. color is perfect for her,

Not everyone could pull it off, but she looks good.

I think it is a beautiful dress and she looks equally beautiful in it.

Don’t get me wrong – she’s gorgeous – but it does kind of look like a sloppy yet chic Snuggie.

Anne needs to put on some weight

With her shape and hairstyle this dress is very flattering on her.
