You know that no red carpet and awards show nowadays could go on without one of those extra-embarrassing wardrobe malfunctions, but not in anyone's wildest dreams would it involve one of the most-buzzed-about Oscar nominees of the night Sunday.

Anne Hathaway, who is nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Oscar this year for her role in "Les Miserables," looked dazzling in a light pink dress by Prada, very much resembling the outfit Gwyneth Paltrow wore in 1999 when she won an Oscar for "Shakespeare in Love." But Hathaway was the victim of what many are calling a wardrobe malfunction, spawning a hilarious Twitter handle almost immediately after her arrival at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

Hathaway clearly wasn't wearing a bra or breast petals, causing her nipples to poke through the thin bust of her pale pink gown. The very visible malfunction roused everyone's gasps on the red carpet -- and, of course, a Twitter account, @HathawayNipple.

The account has been full of hilarious tweets about the fashion faux pas all night, a number with the hashtag #LesNipperables.

Some of the best ones?

"SO glad we didn't poke Kristin Chenoweth's eyes out" and "Anyone else feeling a little chilly?"

The account had 550 Twitter followers by the time the show began Sunday at 8:30 p.m. EST.

Perhaps the wardrobe malfunction happened since Hathaway chose her dress at the last minute. On the red carpet with E! News' Ryan Seacrest, Hathaway said: "My dress is Prada. I didn't know what I was wearing until three hours ago! This was the one that spoke to me in the end."

While the front was a mess thanks to the mishap, the back was beautifully elegant with a cross-back bow and low back, which Hathaway said was "business in the front, party in the back."

Of course, this isn't Hathaway's first wardrobe malfunction: Her most famous one was at the "Les Mis" premiere when she flashed the world as she was getting out of her limo. The starlet, wearing a black Tom Ford gown, gave everyone an upskirt view when exiting the vehicle, as the high slit on the dress resulted in the worst wardrobe malfunction in memory.
