'Les Misérables' Stars' Oscar Gowns: Love 'Em or Leave 'Em?

Though Anne Hathaway and Amanda Seyfried got a thumbs-up from the PEOPLE StyleWatch team for their bubbly red carpet demeanors and terrific hair and makeup, their dresses inspired decidedly mixed reactions.

Hathaway said she picked her baby pink Prada column just hours before the ceremony. The dress had a fun, criss-crossed back and the Tiffany & Co. diamonds she draped herself with were spectacular, but the bodice of the dress was, er, possibly not safe for work when seen up close on the red carpet.

Seyfried’s lilac Alexander McQueen gown with silver leaf embroidery was a sophisticated pick (and a challenging one: she mentioned that the corset was “pushing her organs out of her body”) but the fit wasn’t exact — and if you’re reading, Amanda, we’d really love to see you in more color.
