Today in New York, Valentino Garavani and Giancarlo Giammetti announce the new, virtual Valentino Museum, a downloadable foray into the designer’s world. After downloading the application at valentino-garavani-archives.org, users connect to an online database that includes more than 300 archival dresses as well as sketches, illustrations, advertising campaigns, editorials, and red carpet moments from the house’s history. Anne Hathaway, Vogue Italia‘s Franca Sozzani, and Google’s Amit Sood join Garavani and Giammetti at the Museum of Modern Art at 11 a.m. EST to announce the new project; the press conference live-streams below. The application will be available for downloading immediately afterwards.
John Galliano broke his silence today, issuing an “unreserved apology” for the anti-Semitic slurs that cost him his job. He’s now “seeking help,” and vowing to fight his firing from Dior. [WWD]
In case you missed the Tweet heard ’round the world, tonight’s Mugler show will have a very special runway model. You guessed it—creative director Nicola Formichetti’s best client, Lady Gaga, who also directed the show’s music. (She’ll debut a new track, “Government Hooker.”) [@LadyGaga]
Rachel Zoe, who got her client Anne Hathaway Oscar-host-ready, lets us in on the secrets, including that you’ve got to be able to dance as an Oscar host. She and Hathaway put her custom Brian Atwood shoes to the test in several run-throughs to be sure they were soft-shoe ready. [EW via Styleite]
Speaking of the Oscars, it was a pretty great night for The King’s Speech. So no wonder that the world is clamoring to get all of its regal regalia in order—a new auction will sell off some of the bags and lingerie (!) of Wallis Simpson, for whom Edward VIII abdicated, leaving the throne to his stuttering brother, George VI.

It wasn’t just Anne Hathaway’s caffeinated performance as this year’s Oscars co-host—a peppy, giggly turn that smirking pundits are already suggesting was amped up to balance James Franco’s lethargic cool-guy bit, borrowed, it seemed, from Pineapple Express—that caught viewers’ attention last night. It was also her ricocheting costume changes: seven in all during the course of the show.
Anne began the night in a crystal-embellished white gown from Givenchy Haute Couture (left). From there, she went for a one-button Lanvin tuxedo, with Swarovski-embellished Brian Atwood pumps (below left). Vivienne Westwood Couture is responsible for the greenish-gray strapless number—overtones of Black Swan, we thought—that came up next (below right).
From there, it was a hop and a jump—make that a shake, which she demonstrated onstage—to a beaded, fringed one-shoulder Oscar de la Renta gown (below left). Then on to a winey Atelier Versace gown with embroidered bodice that she later wore to Vanity Fair‘s epic after-party (below right).
The longtime Armani girl wore a shimmering, off-the-shoulder Armani Privé in deep blue next (below left), and ended the night (or the telecast, at least), in a smoky, crystal-studded Tom Ford, with high neck and long sleeves (below right).
Which of Hathaway’s looks—including the red, asymmetrical Valentino Haute Couture that she selected for the red carpet—did you like best?
