The real reason behind Anne Hathaway’s Valentino snub at the Oscars has been revealed
Anne Hathaway caused red carpet controversy at the Oscars last month when she shunned a dress from her long-term friend, Valentino, in favour of a pink Prada column number. She was then forced to issue a public apology to Valentino explaining her choice.
But now, the real reason behind her fashion move has been revealed as the MailOnline report that the fashion culprit was Anne’s Les Miserables co-star Amanda Seyfried and her Alexander McQueen dress.
Anne’s statement read: ‘It came to my attention late that there would be a dress worn to the Oscars that is remarkably similar to the Valentino I had intended to wear, and so I decided it was best for all involved to change my plans.’
Initially was unknown as to which dress, and which star, the Oscar-winner was referring to but now it has emerged that Amanda Seyfried’s Alexander McQueen dress was deemed too similar to the Valentino gown intended for Anne.
Amanda’s lilac dress was embellished with silver dragonfly embroidery with a halter neck and keyhole detail. Anne’s Valentino gown featured similar silver embroidery but had large flowers over a pale purple hue and had a high neck.
In the wake of these reports, Amanda ended the dress drama over the weekend as she tweeted her support posting: ‘Fact: I love you Anne!’
