She dreamed a dream all right — that she remembered to wear panties. But superstar Anne Hathaway didn’t and her “Les Misérables” premiere turned into a nightmare after the paparazzi caught an embarrassing Britney-type wardrobe malfunction.
The “Full Hathaway” revelation was a shocking break from her flawless looks, and came hours after the actress left a taping of the “Late Show with David Letterman” looking stunning in red. During a luncheon Tuesday at the Four Seasons, Hathaway was overheard moaning about her mishap in the black taffeta Tom Ford gown.
“I was getting out of the car and my dress was so tight that I didn’t realize it until I saw all the photographers’ flashes,” she told Vanity Fair writer Ingrid Sischy.
“It was devastating. They saw everything. I might as well have lifted up my skirt for them.”
The “Devil Wears Prada” beauty, well on her way to being a Meryl, accidentally pulled the Britney when she attempted to seamlessly exit her black SUV with the help of a bodyguard who reached for her delicate hand upon arrival. But — oops! — as she swung both of her bondage-inspired boots toward the curb, her thigh-slit dress fell open and she flashed her lady parts.
Was her longtime stylist Rachel Zoe behind the mishap? Or was Hathaway just trying to avoid lines under her slim-fitting gown? Alexis Bryan Morgan, executive fashion director at Lucky magazine, says the incident was “shocking and unfortunate” because Hathaway is always “very pulled together.” Morgan said Hathaway could have avoided the problem.
