Anne Hathaway's Latest Premiere Dress Has Us All Talking

Anne Hathaway Les Mis Dress
Rob Kim/FilmMagic

The lady is a vamp!

Anne Hathaway showed up to the Les Misérables premiere in New York City Monday night wearing what we can only call quite a dress. The black taffeta creation — reportedly by Tom Ford — featured a form-fitting front, sky-high slit (hello, Angelina!) and a parachute-like cape on the back.

The real showstopper, however, were Hathaway’s bondage-inspired boots, custom-made of faux leather because of the actress’s veganism, The Cut reports. The chain-like creations reached all the way to her thighs and featured tight paneling along the calves.

This look calls to mind the creativity of some of her other recent ensembles — her winged Givenchy Haute Couture dress and festooned navy gown — but with the severely slicked hair and dark lip, elevates her look to a new level.

We give Hathaway kudos for taking this look all the way to the edge, and can honestly say we can’t wait to see what she wears next. Tell us: What do you think of Hathaway’s look: hot or hot mess? Vote in our poll and leave your thoughts in the comments below!

too severe for my tastes but her face is always so beautiful!

Carrie M on

Yeah, there’s too much going on but she sure is pretty and the short hair is growing on me… I would love to see the movie!

Aria on

She has a horrible sense of style.

john Alexander-Davis on

You all are just mad because you don’t look that good!

mybuddyluv96 on

Those boots are FIERCE!!!! Love her hair!

Manana on

I don’t like the choices. How about the dress is pretty but the shoes don’t match.

Lee Z on

Might have been a little too edgy – she flashed everyone with her “no-panty” look when she was getting out of the car!

name on

This is the comment section where we insult people?

Russ P. on

I wouldn’t call them boots. Besides they were made popular in the movie “Forrest Gump” …run Forrest! run!

Meg on

John–Dream on, fool.

Donna on

Yikes !!

Surfin on

It looks like a garbage bag and those things on her feet are psycho since they can’t decide if they are shoes or boots.

Jilllouise on

LOVE the dress, make up and hair…..HATE the shoes!!

SayinitLikeItIs on

As usual hollywood idiot taking it too far…she is not pretty. She is not even that talented.

Brooke on

I like it, I’m just sad she chose to not wear underwear and flash her lady bits gettin out of the car

People is to “classy” to mention it but perhaps she should be more classy and put some underwear on!

rolyat on

Kinky !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kim on

She usually dresses flawlessly and is frequently on the best dressed lists but the boots are horrible. She’s not that pretty so she needs all the help she can get. This isn’t the way to do it.

Lex on

She’s always had great style, but this press tour for Les Miz has not been good for her style wise. I don’t know if it’s a new stylist or what, but I think she needs to reevaluate his/her choice in clothing.

liz on

it looks like a brace for a bad knee, takes away from the long line of the dress. Whose idea was that? Yikes.

Sheila on

i’m sorry but she has no sex appeal and CANNOT pull this off..

Karolina on

I think her face looks stunning and I love the short hair on her however, the shoes are horrible..and honestly not loving the dress either. Usually I think she looks terrific but this is a two thumbs waaaay down.

Jen on

The only way this is acceptable is if it is a teaser of her playing Ana in “50 Shades”…which I won’t lie – she would be AMAZING as Ana!

nate on

Shes a really good actress, but she needs to learn how to dress

Kristin on

My first thought was the post behind her should say “Breaking Dawn”! Anne is gorgeous but, between the black dress and her pale skin she looks like one of the vampires from Twilight!

Paula on

Most of the time I like what she wears, but this not so much….

fran on

what a mess

BMO on

So wrong

Netski on

Lol. I thought it was a knee brace

Sandy on

The boots don’t match the dress… if she was wearing something shorter maybe…the dress is too long for the boots or the boots are too dramatic for the already dramatic dress.

glamz on

Since when does wearing a Glad lawn-n-leaf bag and a patent-leather leg brace define as “bondage” inspired?? O_x

maya on


Annie on

She’s unfortunate looking

Kim on

Garbage bags and a leg brace………you call that fashionable?

granny on

Thought she had more sense than that!

Adriana on

“the actress’s veganism” hahahahhaha
Is veganism a word????
I like the way her hair is st

Adriana on

Is veganism a word??? hahahahaha
It sounds like a condition.
I do not like the outfit but she looks beautiful from the neck up.

leigh on

I have not seen anything flattering on Anne in a while. If this is a stylist’s work, oh no. If it is Anne’s she needs a stylist.

engaged on

She looks like she is trying too hard – she is no Audrey – too much of a horse face and then
she is no Angie with that leg – not beautiful enough
either way she just bugs me

TheNiteNurse on

She’s the Geena Davis of the 21st century. Where’s Geena now?

Tiffany on

I don’t like the shoes, at all and I hate them with that dress. I think she would have looked a lot better with a different shoe. I don’t mind the dress. It’s different.

Vandy on

It looks like she has a knee brace on…odd choice.

Rachael on

She is so pretty. Why did she choose to wear a Hefty garbage bag?

Sara on

Anne Hatheway = Jessica Biel, fashion-wise.

Women are cheating all over the place, nowadays! (Rimes/Cibrian, Coco/IceT, Kristen Stewart, Rita Ora, Petraeus women).

My latest book, “I Steal Wives: A serial adulterer reveals the REAL reasons more and more ‘happily married’ women are cheating” is a powerful look at this EXPLOSIVE topic of female infidelity. Research shows its not only on the rise, but rivals or EXCEEDS that of male cheating. And the REAL reasons aren’t the typical blather you hear on talk-TV or read in the SECOND-HAND information of some psychologist’s self-help book.

It’ll rock your world! Truly, you will never see relationships the same way again! You’ll see them much more clearly.

This book is the FIRST BOOK EVER WRITTEN on female infidelity from the FIRST-HAND experience of a serial adulterer, who cheated with the wives/girlfriends of over 25 married men (and a few women), and who also happens to be a therapist (never cheated with clients) and has an eye for patterns in behavior, but more importantly, the core beliefs that drive behavior! The deep and powerful insights of this book will startle women and shock men! And here’s a tip: Cheating always, always, always boils down to the exact same reason at the core: FEAR!

“I Steal Wives” is a salacious, self-deprecating, at times funny, and penetratingly insightful look into what is now the very cutting-edge of relationships. It’s the relationship version of “How to Secure Your House, as told by a professional burglar!” It will forever change how you do relationships and view life!

Check it out now at Amazon and Barnes and Noble!! It’s VERY POPULAR! People are loving it and it’s selling FAST!

Jenny on

Three words: DIS AS TER!!

Liz on

I love Anne,she does no wrong in my eyes.

Sarah Nigeria on
