Was an apology really necessary? Anne Hathaway's pointy, side-boob baring Prada gown garnered lots of attention on Oscars Sunday, even earning it's own Twitter handle @AnnesNipple. And so, the Oscar-winning actress thought she needed to explain her controversial style statement to the fashion world at large.
"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," Hathaway, 30, told Women's Wear Daily. Many believe she's referring to her Les Miserables co-star Amanda Seyfried's gothic-esque gown. "And so I decided it was best for all involved to change my plans."
The statement, issued by Hathaway's rep, continues, "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."
Hathaway is an avid supporter of Valentino, and was married in one of his designs this past year.
"I deeply regret any disappointment caused," Hathaway concludes.
What did you think of the actress' pale pink Prada getup? Did it warrant an apology?
