REPORT: Anne Hathaway THREW A FIT over Amanda Seyfried’s Oscar gown.

Seems like Anne Hathaway’s Oscar dress fiasco has overshadowed the Oscars themselves. Are we still talking about who won best picture? No, we’re still talking about Anne Hathaway’s dress disaster. Anyway, as you may recall, Anne was apparently all set up to wear a Valentino gown on Oscar day, but the day before the awards, Anne saw a picture of what her ‘Les Miserables’ costar Amanda Seyfried was going to be wearing – and she FREAKED. She scrapped the (reportedly) gorgeous Valentino gown she was going to wear – and opted instead to wear the pink Prada dress everyone loves to hate.

An insider close to the situation tells Us Hathaway learned during an Oscar rehearsal at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre on Saturday, Feb. 22 that Seyfried planned to wear a dress notably similar to hers to the ceremony. After Hathaway asked about her pal’s dress, Seyfried graciously shared an iPhone snap of the Alexander McQueen creation.

“Anne was like ‘WTF?!’” the source reports. “She started throwing a fit!” The 30-year-old Best Supporting Actress victor, however, “never told Amanda she had to change the dress.” Still, Seyfried, 27, was ruffled by Hathaway’s tirade. “Amanda didn’t want to deal with it and left” the rehearsal, the source notes.

But the drama didn’t end there — spilling into Oscars Sunday, as Hathaway fretted over the switch-up with her glam squad at home. “Anne made the fashion, make up, hair, and jewelry teams wait at her home for hours as she decided what to do about the dress debacle,” a second insider tells Us. The star also “asked for silence so she could rehearse her singing for the Les Mis tribute at the Oscars. It was a painfully long experience.”

Hathaway acknowledged the kerfuffle in a surprising statement released by her publicist earlier this week. “It came to my attention late Saturday night that there would be a dress worn to the Oscars that is remarkably similar to the Valentino I had intended to wear, and so I decided it was best for all involved to change my plans,” the “I Dreamed a Dream” singer said. “Though I love the dress I did wear, it was a difficult last-minute decision as I had so looked forward to wearing Valentino in honor of the deep and meaningful relationship I have enjoyed with the house and with Valentino himself. I deeply regret any disappointment caused.”

“I kind of can’t understand why Anne didn’t wear the Valentino gown, anyway,” the first source opines. “She was the one winning the award, not Amanda. Who cares?”

I can TOTALLY see this story being true, and honestly…… I think any woman would feel the same. If she did have a freak out – then that’s not cool, but I think being upset someone’s wearing a dress similar to yours is pretty understandable. Anne should have seen the picture – and just changed her dress – without throwing a fit (if that’s what happened). Amanda probably had no idea what Anne was going to wear – so I’m sure there was no ill intent involved.

What do you think? Did Anne have the right to flip out?

Anne Hathaway Threw A Fit Over Amanda Seyfried’s Oscar Dress

Wanna know what and caused a panicked Anne Hathaway to ditch her planned Valentino gown in favor of a Prada creation at the Oscars? Here ya go…

An insider close to the situation tells Us Hathaway learned during an Oscar rehearsal that costar Amanda Seyfried planned to wear a dress notably similar to hers to the ceremony. After Hathaway asked about her pal’s dress, Seyfried graciously shared an iPhone snap of the Alexander McQueen creation.

Oh my goodness. Anne isn’t winning any more fans this way, is she?

Anne Hathaway releases apology over last-minute dress change

I think this whole Anne Hathaway-dress-fiasco is getting a bit out of control. Who cares, right?

A little background. Anne and Valentino have had a long-standing relationship. He designed her wedding dress, and also designed the dress she had arranged to wear to the Oscars on Sunday. Rumor has it – when Anne saw a picture of the dress that Amanda Seyfried was going to wear, she had a change of heart. (Apparently Amanda’s dress was similar to the Valentino gown she was going to wear.)

Anyhoo, Valentino had sent out a press release before the Oscars, saying he was dressing Anne, Jennifer Aniston and Sally Field. Then Anne showed up in Prada….. duh – duh – duuuuuuuuuuuuuh.

“I didn’t know what I was wearing until two hours ago,” Hathaway told E! News of her gown switcheroo on Sunday. “I tried on a ton of dresses and, at the end of the day, I loved the simplicity of it. And this sounds weird, but I’m 30 and I feel 30 in this, and that’s a very positive thing.”

(At the same time, she also said the dress was “business in the front, party in the back,” proving one can have one’s cake and wear it too.)

While last-minute wardrobe changes happen often in Hollywood, some critics interpreted the swap as the actress insulting Valentino, who designed her wedding dress and dressed her for the 2011 Oscars. “We thought they were best friends!” wrote the U.K. Daily Mail, while Refinery29 stated the “real Oscar snub” was Hathaway “ditching” the iconic Italian fashion designer.

That chatter may have been why the A-lister felt prompted to release an official apology on Tuesday afternoon.

“It came to my attention late Saturday night that there would be a dress worn to the Oscars that is remarkably similar to the Valentino I had intended to wear, and so I decided it was best for all involved to change my plans,” the actress said in a statement, according to PEOPLE magazine. “Though I love the dress I did wear, it was a difficult last minute decision as I had so looked forward to wearing Valentino in honor of the deep and meaningful relationship I have enjoyed with the house and with Valentino himself. I deeply regret any disappointment caused.”

No further mention was made of the “similar” dress in question, but Fashionista sources claim it may have been Amanda Seyfried’s Alexander McQueen lace gown, which looks rather like a Valentino couture gown from Spring 2013. Neither Valentino nor Hathaway’s stylist, Rachel Zoe, have publicly commented yet.

Hathaway’s apology comes amid other reports that the actress was sensitive to criticism following her Oscar win. Speaking to reporters backstage after winning for Best Supporting Actress, Hathaway admitted to feeling hurt by those who said she seemed insincere and too earnest in her acceptance speech.

“It does get to me,” she said, according to Us Weekly. “But you have to remember in life that there’s a positive to every negative and a negative to every positive.”

Here are some new pictures of Anne leaving an office in Los Angeles this afternoon.

Anne Hathaway’s disastrous pink Prada Oscar’s dress EXPLAINED

Anne Hathaway pretty unanimously wore one of Sunday night’s least favorite dresses. The pink satin Prada dress with the bizarre darting around the nipple area, was a disaster. Thing is – it wasn’t even her first choice. Turns out the Oscar winner had a Valentino dress picked out – up until the very last minute. In fact, Valentino’s people had already released a press statement saying Anne would be wearing their gown.

RELATED: Maybe Anne Hathaway just has a thing for pink?

So what happened? According to E! Anne decided at the last minute to ditch her Valentino gown and wear the Prada one instead because she was concerned Amanda Seyfreid’s Alexander McQueen gown.

When it comes to selecting the Oscar gown, it’s no surprise that quite a bit of careful analysis goes into the strategic style selection. After all, an Oscar dress on a nominee, let alone a winner, will forever be remembered in history.

So upon seeing Anne Hathaway in a blush-pink Prada design on last night’s red carpet, we couldn’t help but wonder what happened to her trademark Valentino couture loyalty. After all, the star has consistently worn the designer on countless red carpets, and even had Mr. Valentino design her wedding dress months ago.

More peculiarly, Valentino even sent out a confirmation press release earlier in the afternoon declaring that the Les Misérables actress would be donning a design from the house, and shortly thereafter Fashion Police’s George Kotsiopoulos predicted on-air during the E! Oscars preshow that she’d wear an ivory embellished gown with a high neckline by the designer.

So what happened?

A source close to the actress confirms to E! News that shortly before Hathaway stepped out on the red carpet she learned that Amanda Seyfried’s Alexander McQueen Oscar gown was strikingly similar to her selected Valentino design, and opted for the Prada dress last minute.

A quick side-by-side comparison shows that both pale gowns were embellished with beautiful delicate floral embroidery—perhaps a little too close for comfort, in the opinion of the Oscar winner.

Hathaway explained to E!’s Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet that she “didn’t know what I was wearing until about three hours ago,” and said her work schedule was to blame. “This is the one that spoke to me in the end.”

Now I want to know what Anne’s OTHER dress looked like!
