Anne Hathaway in Vogue Mexico


Darlings, let's celebrate our new layout with some pretty, yes? Anne Hathaway just did an editorial for Vogue Mexico and the bitch can wear a frock. Still, we don't love every dress. Our favorites are the Versace, the Thakoon, and the Marchesa, in that order. The Prada (and it pains us to say this) is kind of ugly.

Oh, by the way, did you hear? She's going to be playing Judy Garland, which will either make her the enemy of gay men everywhere or their patron saint, depending on whether she can pull it off. We think it's an inspired bit of casting, but those ruby slippers are almost impossible to fill, so we'll have to see.

Gorgeous. Agreed about the Prada. It's just not aesthetically pleasing.

Anne would be better off playing Audrey Hepburn. She's a foot taller than Judy. But she can sing; I'm not sure the younger, petite, brunette actresses working today (Natalie Portman and there's another whose name isn't coming to me) are as talented.


The dresses are gorgeous (except Prada's). I think she's fabulous. LOVE her.


That Thakoon dress is to die for, me wants it.


Bravo Vogue Mexico!
I love how they made her to look like a beautiful Mexican woman on the cover.
I agree with you about the dresses, except I would put the Marchessa first, Thakoon second and the Versace third. At least the Prada looks better on her than it does on the model.
I don't know if she can pull off Judy or not. My first instinct would be no.

Wouldn't a PR Mexico be great?


this is the same editorial that she did with American Vogue last January i think.... i know i've seen these photos befoer


Old pics, ladies.

But we know girlie can sing! there's a few old youtube videos of her singing, plus we saw her sing at the Oscars.

Yes, it is a reprint (Vogue US Jan 2009).

This looks exactly like the shoot she did for U.S. Vogue in December. Seriously, are these new pictures or did Mexican Vogue just use the same ones?


Oh, no, that Marchesa show with the models fresh from 3 months at boot camp.


I can't wait to see her as Judy, mainly because I want to see her die of an overdose.

Oh, that's mean, I don't hate her.

I like her in the bondage/medical gauze Thakoon.


Oh, and what the fuck is she wearing on the cover? It looks like old curtains from a hacienda!


in the marchesa and versace photos, anne looks quite a bit like camilla belle. no?


LOVE the Thakoon - especially in the slightly longer version Anne appears to be sporting. I wonder if there is a fabulous Thakoon out there that works with this dress.


honesty.not.pc

She's so lovely, I adore her eyebrows :)

I agree that the Prada is a little too fussy but I like the color on her.


Judy Davis already played Judy pretty darn well.


I think she'll be great as Judy-- not only can she sing, but I think she can do the combination of bravado and vulnerability the role requires.

And in every one of those pics, she looks much better than the models do!


I agree that the Prada is wanting. Perhaps this is a woman-who-is-not-an-A-cup prejudice, but I truly hate that underwire-esque neckline style wherever it shows up.
It seems to draw the emphasis away from the garment and towards the body underneath, but in a distracting rather than a flattering way.


Love the layout. Anne looks beautiful, as always. Love the Thakoon.
The Prada number, I don't like, but she makes it work in the darker color.
Anne as Judy Garland? I don't know. Judy was quite short and always had an ongoing battle with weight. I don't see Anne piling on the some pounds. Also, Judy was not a classical beauty. To me, Anne is. I know they can do wonders with wardrobe, makeup, wigs and styling, but I'm just not convinced of the concept of Hathaway as Garland.


Do not get me wrong here, I love this girl... but does she not look like Penelope Cruz?

Two totally different actresses that look remarkably the same sometimes...


Now THERE'S a Thakoon that would look incredible on Shelley O.

Anne's starting to grow on me. I was surprised to hear her sing, so I'm intrigued about what she'll do taking on the Patron Saint of Gay Men.


I love her hair in the photo of the Thakoon.


I'm not thrilled about the casting choice, to say the least.


yuck.


I always thought of Anne Hathaway as a competently fluffy actress; smart, skilled, but not terribly deep. Then I saw "Rachel Getting Married" - whatever complaints anyone may have about the rest of the movie she was superb. You empathized with her, loathed her, wished for the best for her, and cringed for her.
Physically I think she's a good fit for playing Judy too. Her facial features are reminiscent, and I keep thinking of her as looking like a giantess in comparison to Mickey Rooney in publicity stills (though she was just shy of 5' and he was just over - from IMDb) am sure that must've been bad camera angles ... and in heels she looked as big as her male co-stars on the yellow brick road. So height doesn't really seem an issue.
I'm definitely looking forward to her in this role!


The cover styling looks a lot like the U.S Vogue Beyonce cover. No originality.


too many cats

As Judy Garland....doesn't feel right.
Judy was short and vulnerable. Anne has/exudes a owns-the-world because she's tall and beautiful persona that defines her as a person.
Short is different.
I can't see Anne in a longish sequined jacket and leggings and I remember the original from TV.

a) It wasn't September, it was January.

b) It has been mentioned before about 100 times. No offense, but do you guys ever read the comments before posting?


I think she looks phenomenal. I'm not a fan but she knows how to wear those labels.


She looks great! I love the Versace dress.

ROFL. I thought the same thing.


I like her, but I'm not so sure about her playing Judy. I've thought before that she would be perfect to play Liza; she does have some facial similarities there. But Judy, I don't know.

Judy was so tiny, that every other actor on the set will have to wear platform shoes to get the perspective right. Anne did sing wonderfully at the Oscars, but her voice is so different.

But then again, playing Judy Garland is a lot like singing 'Over the Rainbow'; how can you improve upon the original? And about 10 years ago there was a mini series (I think it was produced by Lorna Luft), that had 2 different actresses playing the young & older Judy & both were amazing. Judy Davis was the older Judy and was just uncanny. I can't remember the younger actresses name.

I know I am in the minority, but, oy - Anne is one big snooze fest.


I always love it when actresses look better in dresses than the models that were hired to make them look good. Anne accomplishes this feat in that Thakoon dress. Though it looks pretty on the model, it looks fabulously amazing on Anne.


I think the actresses look better because they look so vibrant within themselves. I know it's so as not to distract attention from the clothes, but the models look blank and lifeless. That's particularly the case with these pictures.


When I think of some young starlet playing Judy I think of Amy Adams. Hopefully Anne will do well, and yes, the bitch CAN wear a frock!


...I think that was in American Vogue as well, because I've definitely seen those pictures before...with english captions.


Holy spit... where did her boobs go?


The Versace looks like something Vincent would have made for a PR challenge. The zippers are hardly earth shattering design elements.

However the Marchesa is gorgeous.


Anne Hathaway is no Judy - first of all, she does not resemble her at ALL, and doesn't have 1/10 of her charisma. She is a competent actress, and has a decent voice, but it really takes someone with more excitement around them (like, Judy Davis) to really make that sort of thing work. Bleah. Anne Hathaway is just a bore.

I thought so! I remembered those photos, but I had recycled the magazine. And Vogue recycled the photos.


Hathaway is more cartoon-like, I could imagine her more likely doing Liza not Judy. She has that ability to get their doe-caught-in-headlights look, but that was only one instance of Judy's character. Vulnerability and pain under a tough profi shell is hard to capture. Too often her face, especially her ample mouth, will go the wrong direction from Judy mannerisms. It's not a natural fit, like, say, Sharon Stone playing Phyllis Diller in a bio.


she makes a good mannequin, but i really just don't care for her. her face is too thin for her features - it makes her eyes, nose and mouth look enormous, and not in a good way. i like the "old" unglamourized, slightly rounder anne hathaway. i give the photographer a lot of credit for posing/styling her in a very flattering way.

otherwise, anne bores me.

Agreed. And credit is due to Tammy Blanchard, too. She did a great younger Garland, and also had an uncanny likeness to Judy as well.


I think she looks amazing and like a real woman.


Great editorial. I really like the outfits, except the Prada and Lanvin.
The Mexican cover is far better than the American one.


Her mouth is ENORMOUS and I thought Julia Roberts had a big mouth. The Thakoon is really pretty. I bet Michelle Obama would look great in that too.


She's a beautiful, beautiful woman, and I think she looks better than the model in every dress. I love it that she is not sickeningly anorexic. Rock on, Anne.


When she's not smiling I get a little hint of Natalie Wood - it is hard for me to see Judy Garland at all.

My order would be the Thakoon, the Versache and far-trailing third the Marchesa.

I always think of her as someone who is more attractive in motion than in photographs, she actually *is* lovely in some of these shots, but usually I think the best she looks in photos is "handsome."

No opinions on the Garland role. I think of her as too physically large, too conventionally attractive, and too deliberate in her motions, for the part, but, well, that's why it's acting. It's not necessarily about being a doppelganger.


She looks gorgeous!


I think that with all its criss-crossed stripes, the Thakoon is what Suede kept trying to pull off but never could.


I love Anne and these pictures are lovely. But I don't understand why they felt the need to make her look like a pirate in the Thakoon. When I saw the picture I was wondering why in the world she had an eye patch; then I realized her hair had just curely cued right over her eye.


Heck.

If Marion Cotillard at 5'6 1/2" can pull off playing the tiny Edith Piaf, then maybe Ann Hathaway has a chance portraying Judy Garland.
It will be interesting.


another laura

Lovely woman.

Would I be committing heresy if I said that I was over Marchesa?

I wondered if you guys would have something to say about her playing Judy. I really don't know how she's going to pull that off.


Anne looks beautiful in these photos, but will someone please feed Veronika a cheezeburger, stat?

That's... scary.


I love the way she is stretching to avoid the unsightly boob-pooch in that Thakoon dress. I like the concept of the dress, but the placement of that particular band is unfortunate to the wearer's right breast.


Save for the cover shot, these shots are from the same photoshoot Anne did for U.S. Vogue in their December issue. Don't know if people recognized that.


WOW. When did she get so sexy?
