Anne Hathaway is pretty in Prada.
Despite Anne Hathaway’s apology to the iconic fashion house for ditching her Valentino Oscars gown, the Les Mis star was noticeably absent from the front row at Valentino’s Fall 2013 ready-to-wear show today. Still, it was hard not to think of the Oscar-winner while watching Valentino’s Fall 2013 runway show, which included an array of red carpet-worthy gowns that had the actress’ name written all over them.

While we could see Hathaway wearing pretty much the entire collection, if any of these three gowns had been ready on time, she could have avoided the whole nipplegate/designer ditch fiasco and celebrated a best-dressed win in addition to her Oscar win.

The intricate embroidery on this blue-and-white stunner is so elegant and yet so fresh — it would have stood out for all the right reasons on the red carpet.

Okay, so can’t you totally see Anne wearing any of these three Valentino dresses on the red carpet?
