Revealed: Amanda Seyfried and Anne Hathaway's Oscar Dress Mess

How did Lehigh Valley's Amanda Seyfried derail Anne Hathaway's plan for what to wear on the red carpet at the 2013 Academy Awards?

The 2013 Oscar ceremony is history but there's still buzz about what the stars wore on the red carpet and why.

Turns out Lehigh Valley star Amanda Seyfried may have caused her "Les Miserables" co-star Anne Hathaway to make a hasty last-minute gown selection change.

Allentown native Seyfried looked stunning in a pale appliqued dress by British designer Alexander McQueen.

Reports now say Hathaway saw a photo of the gown Seyfried planned to wear and then changed her choice because the gowns were so similar.

Hathaway said she was planning to wear a Valentino gown up until just three hours before the awards ceremony. She ended up wearing a pale pink Prada gown with chest darts that accentated her, um, nipples. Hathaway issued an apology about the gown controversy after the event.

She also ended up winning the award for best supporting actress.

Happened to me at a NY wedding. My older (and much thinner) sister wore the same outfit!!! I wouldn't have minded if she didn't look so much better in it!

I thought the Prada dress she wore was fabulous. I also think that the VP in charge of Bodice Dart Placement at Prada is on unemployment about right now.

I tried to focus on her beautiful smile and bob cut, but couldn't help to think she looked cold.

I too thought the Prada dress was stunning. The should have put cups in the bodice. It would have filled the dress a little better and not caused such a huge uproar!

Charles, please understand that I mean no offense, however, you sound like a dirty old man, LOL
