Anne Hathaway in Jean Paul Gaultier at the ‘Ocean’s Eight’ premiere: cute or nah?

'Ocean's 8' World Premiere

Here’s Part 2 of the Ocean’s Eight premiere photos. The ladies didn’t coordinate their looks, so there were some clashes on the black carpet. I kind of wonder if the ladies knew that the carpet was going to be black as well, because some women chose black outfits that “bled” into the background. Anne Hathaway’s patterned Jean Paul Gaultier gown was like that a little bit – I thought the dress was just too short, but if you look closely, you can see that the dress actually has a black border on the bottom, and it’s actually the right length. Still, I can’t say that I’m completely behind this. She looks beautiful, of course, but… I don’t know, I just would have put her in something else.

Mindy Kaling in Prabal Gurung. This is the silhouette she should do more often: structured bodice, looser skirt and some kind of strap holding everything up. This works on her really well. Is it the most fashion-forward thing ever? No. But she looks great!

Helena Bonham Carter in Vivienne Westwood. She loves Westwood and Westwood gowns look amazing on her. I doubt this is even a new dress – this was probably in her closet.

Awkwafina in Reem Acra. It’s simple and vaguely bridal to me, but nice. I like how “clean” it looks.

And finally, Gigi Hadid was there, and she wore an awful dress. I suspect that she’s one of the celebrity/model cameos in the “Met Gala” scenes. Also: Gigi is back with Zayn, in case anyone cares. How many times are they going to break up and make up?

    Helena Bonham Carter looks exquisite. She’s not wearing high heels, is she? Good for her!

    That dress is a big, bold change for Anne and she carries it off.

    • Rapunzel says:

      I love HBC’s dress. Her hair though…

    • Jan90067(aka imqrious2) says:

      I hate to say it, but I really like the 60s/70s vibe of Anne’s dress (because I detest Gaultier’s anti-Semitic @$$). But she looks great, as does Mindy, and Helena; Awkwafina, not so much (for me). Perhaps if the dress was in another color? It just looks like a bridal nightgown to me *¯\_(ツ)_/¯ *

      • Starkiller says:

        Are you sure you’re not thinking of Galliano? I’ve never heard of Gaultier making anti-Semitic comments.

      • Figleaf says:

        You’re thinking of Galliano, Jean-Paul Gaultier has never said anything on the record that can be construed as anti-semitic.

        I guess French men all look the same to you, huh?…

  2. Jane says:

    Perhaps I shouldn’t have been eating breakfast when I saw this dress. Now suddenly I don’t have much of an appetite right now. Ugh!

  3. Seraphina says:

    I want to like it, I really do but something is throwing me off. I like the neck line on her but she looks like she belongs on a yacht in the Mediterranean but then that dress is not quite right for that either. Like I said, I want to like it.

    I don’t think any of these ladies were done any favors by the brand that dresses them. All illfitting and boring. They look like they belong at an elegant Halloween party except for Anne, she looks like she belongs with Mrs Howell on a three hour tour.

  4. Becks1 says:

    Oh Anne. no no no. her hair and makeup look good though.

    Mindy and HBC both look awesome.

  5. lower-case deb says:

    HBC’s dress is what Gigi’s dress wants to be once it grows up…

    • bella says:

      Great comment! 100%. Mindy and HBC look gorgeous. I want to like Anne’s dress–I am on the fence and can’t figure out why. Gigi’s dress looks like it’s not quite finished.

  6. K says:

    I kinda like the dress, but Anne Hathaway does remind me a bit of Elizabeth Taylor during her kaftan era here.

    Love Mindy Kaling’s dress and makeup. The colors are so complimentary to her.

    Awkwafina looks great but missed a trick with not putting on a dark lipstick, something vampy like a deep plum or blackened red. I still love the look though.

    Helena Bonham Carter is a bit like Sofia Vergara to me in that they’re great looking women in great looking dresses but so boring in terms of fashion because there’s never any excitement or variety in what they wear, generally speaking.

    Gigi’s dress/hair/shoes combo is weirdly unflattering for some reason. It looks like it should work, but it just doesn’t?

  7. Annie says:

    To me, it’s that light tan piece between the white halter and the patterned dress bottom that just throws AH’s whole look off.

  8. Baebae says:

    Looks like Anne is trying out African print dresses. I love it! Gorgeous fabric, I would wear this in a heartbeat.

    • ZGB says:

      Yes, Anne Hathaway’s looks like Ankara print. I love it. Its the most fashionable she’s looked to me

  9. Lala says:

    I LOVE Anne’s dress…it’s got that “Grown & Sexy” vibe that’s so hot to me…and it’s perfect for the summer…..AND…it reminds me of fashion from the 70s…and I am a GLUTTON for 70s fashion…as it was my FAVORITE decade…still….

  10. Melania says:

    I like Anne Hathaway, I’m so happy that she’s in this movie

  11. Lucy says:

    They all looked great, but Awkwafina wins this round. Just give me this movie already!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I love her look. I am so curious about her undergarments on top, because it looks so smooth and flawless. There are no seams! I’m amazed.

  12. Carrie says:

    I know that I’m in the minority, but I think that Anne Hathaway looks stunning! The gown is a departure from anything that I’ve ever seen her in, is interesting, and looks to be well-made. I also think that her hair, make-up, and jewelry all go well with the gown. I AM SO EXCITED TO SEE THIS MOVIE.

  13. NeoCleo says:

    Absolutely OVER the Hadid sisters.

  14. Pita says:

    Anne’s dress makes me think of the Korean traditional dresses, the print seems like a mix of African and non-descript Asian design.
    Is Gig pregnant? Her face seems rounder than usual, maybe she is just growing up, reminds me of Brigitte Bardot.

  15. Heather says:

    Is Anne pregnant? She’s been wearing very loose dresses for a few weeks now, I think. I love this on her.

  16. TheOtherSam says:

    Anne has been using Law Roach as stylist for this press tour and has been mostly killing it. This dress is a big gamble but she carries it off. Love the poker straight hair.

  17. Yes Doubtful says:

    I love how Helena Bonham Carter doesn’t give a flying fig. She always looks like a train-wreck, but for her, it works.
