Which leading ladies had the better red carpet looks?
After donning dramatic dresses to the London premiere of Les Miserables, the film’s leading ladies Anne Hathaway and Amanda Seyfried made another bold statement for the film’s New York premiere.

There was definitely a darker vibe on the red carpet at last night’s premiere, with both leading ladies donning long black dresses. But that’s where the similarities end.

After donning a winter white Givenchy gown with draped sleeves to Les Miserables’ London premiere, Hathaway once again spread her sartorial wings in a long black Tom Ford gown with cape-like draping decorating the back.

Chic in the front, chaotic in the back, the fitted gown’s front was elegant and sophisticated in its simplicity, while the draped back just looked messy. Hathway and Ford rarely make a red carpet miss, so we’re inclined to believe that maybe it was just one of those looks that doesn’t photograph well on the red carpet. But the actress’ lace-up bondage style footwear, which she showed off through a thigh-high slit, only further muddied the elegance of the dress’ facade.

All in all, the overall goth-elegance mash-up wasn’t one of our favorite Hathway looks, but we applaud the star for taking more chances on the red carpet — and her bold red lip did payoff.

Seyfried, on the other hand, went for a more glam goth in a long strapless Alexander McQueen gown with a gold embroidered bodice. The starlet accessorized the look with a tortoise belt and McQueen’s skull clutch for a more subtle goth touch than Hathaway’s knee-high bondage heels.

A wraparound braid and dark, dramatic cat eyes finished off Seyfried’s goth-glam look.
