How I Would Dress the Oscar Nominees - Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway has been nominated for Best Actress for her role in Rachel Getting Married. Hathaway has a unique characteristic of looking good in just about anything, and wearing it well.

I saved Hathaway for last because I couldn't decide who I would like to see her wear. She would look equally smashing in 1940's Adrian, 1960's Norell, or 1980's St. Laurent. In the end, though, I knew it was Hathaway who could carry off the drama of 1950's Dior. And I would love to see Hathaway in any of these gorgeous gowns.

1955 dior evening gown....this 1955 gown made famous in Avedon's photo of Dovima with the Elephants......

.....or this 1957 Dior gown of red polka dots. The hem climbs slightly higher in the front, as you can see in the mirror.

Which would you choose?

I'd pick the first one, though they'd all be stunning on her.

Make it hard why don't you? I vote the 1955 Dior. But either would be stunning

I love the Dovima dress and think it would look great on Hathaway. But I also would love to see her wear the polka dot one, perhaps to another awards show like the SAGs or Golden Globes.

The 1951 Dior- I don't think dresses get any more beautiful than that!
