(Newser) – Anne Hathaway's nipples got so much attention at the Oscars that they now have their own Twitter account—but Hathaway wasn't even supposed to be wearing the Prada dress that showcased them so well. She had originally chosen a Valentino dress, and Valentino even put out a press release Sunday saying Hathaway would be wearing one of the fashion house's designs. But she made a switch after hearing the night before "that there would be a dress worn to the Oscars that is remarkably similar to the Valentino I had intended to wear," she tells People in a statement.

A source tells Us the person in question was Hathaway's own Les Miserables co-star, Amanda Seyfried, who wore Alexander McQueen (you can see a comparison of the two dresses here). But Hathaway has a longstanding relationship with Valentino, who custom-designed her wedding dress, and regrets "any disappointment caused," she says. "Though I love the dress I did wear, it was a difficult last minute decision as I had so looked forward to wearing Valentino in honor of the deep and meaningful relationship I have enjoyed with the house and with Valentino himself."
