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?

Minus the sleeves the dress itself is pretty!

I think she could lace up the back more. With the skirt a little flowy, the sleeves shouldn’t be so flowy too!!!! TO MUCH FLOWY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love it, especially the pearl beading and style

Good for her for being risky…she has a rockin’ bod and it shows in this get up. I wouldn’t wear it (even if I had her figure) but I’m not her and she’s not me, to each their own!

She’s not attractive enough to carry off a dress like that, and realize her hair was cut off for the film, but wow does long hair make a difference oh her! I never realized how unattractive she was until her head was shaved, hope she has the sense to grow it back long, she needs help!

I like the front, but the back is a bit of a disaster. It looks like someone ripped her sleeves off the halter straps. I think it would look better in the back if the sleeves attached to the straps and draped, like the front.

let’s see you look that good in it

Karin on

Love the back, meh to the front.
