While a true tea-length dress is traditionally described as having a hemline that hits "between the bottom of the the knee and the bottom calf," I tend to think of it as "that totally weird territory that looks neither long nor short." Want to see what I mean?

The ever-gorgeousAnne Hathawayhit the red carpet in London for the premiere of her new movie,One Day,wearing this delicate white dress byAlexander McQueen.Her Old Hollywood waves are classic glam,her body looks every inch like she's been in the gym a gajillion hours a day to get in shape forCatwoman(which,um,she has),and her accessories add the perfect finishing touch.But for the life of me,I can't get past the odd length of her hemline!It looks like it was either meant to be a gown,but she was a liiiiittle too tall for it,or it was meant to fall just below the knee and Anne's legs weren't long enough.I literally want to reach into this photo and hike that thing up a few inches just to make it look anywhere but in between!

Here's how it looked on the model in McQueen's resort 2012 lookbook:


I find this version,with a few extra inches of flesh showing,to be slightly more palatable--but still,I'm anything but sold on tea length.It just feels wishy-washy to me,like you couldn't make a decision on whether to go long or short (that's what knee-length dresses were invented for,ladies!).How about you,dolls?Do you like this look on Anne Hathaway?Or do you think it would be a home run if the length were only different?Are you a fan of tea length in general?Discuss!
