Nicole Kidman Wears Anne Hathaway's Original Oscars Gown At Cannes

You know, the one Valentino himself sent out a press release announcing Hathaway would be wearing before that last-minute hullaballo over Amanda Seyfried's too-smilar look.

This is the dress, from Valentino's Spring 2013 Haute Couture collection.

And Anne pretends to be happy for her but inside she's having a jealousy meltdown.
