Tabatha's Takeover: Anne Hathaway Makes a Fashion Faux Pas

Posted on

Dave Allocca/Startraks

We all know Tabatha Coffey, Bravo’s sharp-tongued Aussie style pro, from her stint on Shear Genius and her latest hit, Tabatha Takes Over. And now, she’s bringing her talents online, joining us at PEOPLE StyleWatch once weekly to dish on some of the best — and worst — celebrity looks of the week. Keep in mind the opinions below belong solely to the stylist … though she’s probably saying what lots of you are thinking, anyway!

Today, she takes on Anne Hathaway, who tried something a bit out of the box for a Les Misérables screening in New York City: 

Dear Anne,

Hello there. I just want to take a moment and congratulate you on the release of your new film, Les Misérables. I am looking forward to seeing it.

The reason for my correspondence is I want to discuss with you your recent red carpet attire. In the past I have loved just about everything you’ve worn, but up until now I’m just not sure where your stylist is taking you. For instance, the frock you wore at your recent premiere just really missed the mark for me. It looked as if someone took a piping bag filled with buttercream frosting and made you stand still as they frosted your dress onto you. Not your best look I must say.

And then we have this dress that looks a bit like curtains from Liberace’s estate. To be honest, it is as if this dress is wearing you. The trim around the arms is confusing me. I don’t think the public has seen trim on a dress like this since Gone with the Wind. I will say that the belt was a nice attempt to make these drapes look more flattering, and the only thing this dress has going for it is the delicate neckline.

As for your hair and makeup, I love, love, love it as always.

Please know that I still have faith in your future looks because I have seen you appear stunning and striking in the past. Hoping your next red carpet appearance showcases your striking features and fabulous frame. I’m positive it will!
