Best Ensemble Cast 2012 – ‘Les Miserables’

The ‘Les Miserables’ cast, including Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Hugh Jackman and Eddie Redmayne, have taken the red carpet by storm, parading out looks as dramatic as their roles in the movie, which is already garnering a crush of awards buzz.

While the flick has been nominated for top nods by Screen Actors Guild and Golden Globes voters (with Oscar on the tip of everyone’s tongue, too), the actors are already winners in the fashion category for Best Ensemble Cast 2012.

From Tokyo to London and New York City premieres to late-night talk shows and promotional luncheons, this ensemble has struck pose after pose. While Hugh and Eddie cut handsome profiles in such labels as Lanvin, Alexander McQueen and Burberry Prorsum, leading the way were Anne and Amanda, who deserved the most attention. (No offense, guys.)

Both actresses stepped up their style game with pretty and provocative looks that pushed the boundaries.

Amanda and Anne, respectively, trotted out a floral-print Brood and an edgy Antonio Berardi in Tokyo, then a ruffled Balenciaga and embellished Givenchy Couture in London, both to mixed review. Anne’s sleek after-party look by Altuzarra was redeeming.

But just as in a good screenplay, a bit of scandal is always a bonus. And in NYC, the starlets delivered the shock factor with complementary confections that were dark, mysterious and slightly goth.

Amanda stunned in Alexander McQueen, and Anne went all-out in Tom Ford: a moody black extravaganza with bondage-inspired gladiator boots.

    I thought The Hunger Games cast were the best and most consistent but I did also really love Les Mis! Amanda’s Balenciaga brought it down for me but she certainly redeemed in McQueen. The men were outstanding!

    Imo, Anne’s Les Misérables promo tour has been pretty near abysmal and Amanda had some looks that brought the whole thing even more down. So there was no way I could have picked this cast as the best dressed one.

    I agree with Jess2, The Hunger Games’ cast was more consistent.

    Amanda (who did best in both her fab A. McQueen looks) and Anne (who was dramatic but not always a hit) were very up-and-down for me, but with the best dressed men beside them and also they were very memorable so they do deserve this.

    really? i think they won because they were recent so people remember them more. For me Hunger Games and even Twilight did better
