So, You’re Going To Host The Oscars…-------
The rumors are true: This year’s Oscar co-hosts are Bright Young Things™ Anne Hathaway and James Franco. (Both, incidentally, looking good in the early running for major awards.) Franco could do worse than the Tom Ford tuxes last year’s co-hosts, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin, donned for the occasion. (He’d do well to bring both his arms, however.) But Hathaway? She’s got a few more options. Over the last two years, Hathaway has emerged as a style star in her own right. The houses of Valentino and Armani are both eager to claim her for their own, though she’s also been known to pal around with Marc Jacobs and, at least in the past, has had a soft spot for Marchesa. So who’ll she wear come March? We’ve rounded up a few of her past hits above, both formal and cocktail; let us know which you like, and who she should pick for the big show.
