GLAM OR SHAM?: Anne Hathaway Mixes Stripes, Polka Dots and Ruffles in Marni Resort 2011

Anne Hathaway is something of a fashion darling, appearing in Vogue and wearing top designers flawlessly on the red carpet. That's why her latest appearance has The Glamazons scratching our heads.

For the 20th Century Fox Press Day for her upcoming flick, RIO, in Los Angeles, Hathaway wore a look from Marni's Resort 2011 collection: a striped cropped sweater paired with polka dot ruffled cropped pants. 

Mixed prints are nothing new---we've seen Rihanna, Beyonce and even Michelle Obama embrace the look, but a Coutura rule of thumb is to wear varying patterns with complimentary hues. Unfortunately, Anne Hathaway didn't read this blog.

The pieces are too mismatched and out-of-sync to be fashion-forward. And to add insult to injury, the cropped shirt AND cropped pants make for odd proportions, the sweater is completely shapeless and even the materials clash. A sweater and light breezy pants? What season is it?

On the model, however, it looks quirky and playful which proves that not every look can go from the runway to reality.

For her hot Marni mess, we say Anne Hathaway looks a "Dusty Sham," but what's your verdict, Glamazons? Is this look Glam or a Sham?
