Anne Hathaway ditched Valentino dress at the Oscars because it ‘was too similar to Amanda Seyfried’s’

Les Miserables star reportedly ‘freaked out’ when she saw her co-star’s Alexander McQueen gown and opted for Prada instead

Anne Hathaway ditched her go-to designer Valentino at the Oscars 2013 because his dress was too similar to Amanda Seyfried’s, according to reports.

The Les Miserables actress left her favourite designer – who designed her wedding dress – high and dry after freaking out when she saw her co-star’s frock.

But it seems the Les Mis star had a change of heart once she’d had a look at co-star Amanda Seyfried’s red carpet choice.

The actress reportedly ‘freaked out’ when she caught a glimpse of Amanda’s lacy Alexander McQueen gown and ordered stylist Rachel Zoe to change her outfit.

In fact, her last-minute decision may have lost her fashion points as she had a wardrobe malfunction – although she still looked stunning.

Anne’s nipples could be seen through the gown and were the talking point of the Oscars the next day.
