Anne Hathaway surprised the fashion world by wearing Prada -- not Valentino -- to the Academy Awards despite her long-standing relationship with Italian designer Valentino Garavani, who also designed her wedding gown. Hathaway's representative ultimately released a statement explaining that the Oscar winner originally planned to wear a Valentino creation to the Oscars, but at the last minute (the night before) discovered it was very similar to a gown someone else planned to wear. That's why she decided to wear this column gown by another Italian designer: Prada.
