Anne Hathaway makes a last-minute Oscar dress swap
On Oscar night, Anne Hathaway made a last-minute decision to don a pink Prada column dress instead of the Valentino gown she had planned on wearing. Too bad nobody thought to tell the folks at Valentino, who blasted a press release out to fashion journalists before the actress stepped onto the red carpet. Valentino issued a retraction, and a few days later, Hathaway issued an apology. “It came to my attention late Saturday night 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,” she said in a statement released through her publicist. “Though I love the dress I did wear, it was a difficult last-minute decision as I had so looked forward to wearing Valentino in honor of the deep and meaningful relationship I have enjoyed with the house and with Valentino himself…. I deeply regret any disappointment caused.” The worst part? Hathaway inspired the silliest fashion meme of Oscar night.
