Anne Hathaway’s Style ‘Journey’ Is One Of The Best

anne hathaway

We have a deep abiding love for The Intern actress Anne Hathaway. For years, it was popular to call her a rake of words synonymous with the word annoying, an attitude we found quite mean and rude. Why is it women are always compared to marmite when it comes to likeability? And why should it matter how relatable someone seems when you’re talking about acting, a profession which commands a person to change themselves depending on whichever script is paying their mortgage that month? To say you ‘can’t stand’ Anne Hathaway is a tired, and because we’re in a straight as a die mood, sexist worthless opinion. Let it go, and judge the talented woman on her merits – of which she possesses many.

Her CV is plain delightful. From that debut in the charming The Princess Diaries to the iconic The Devil Wears Prada with a stopover in indie hit Rachel Getting Married, the beloved biopic Becoming Jane and the complex romantic drama Love and Other Drugs, Hathaway’s resumé is one of comfort mixed up with risk. Next month she takes on The Intern opposite Robert De Niro. The movies arrives in Irish cinemas October 2nd and Hathaway stars as Jules Ostin, the founder of an online fashion empire who is rising star in her industry. De Niro plays her intern, who is sure to teach her some Valuable Life Lessons. Think Lean In, Life/Work Balance, All The Issues Working Women Face.

And then there is her status as a fashion role model. When you think Anne Hathaway, you think old-school grace and alabaster skin. Case in point, this year’s Met Gala.

However, Anne’s journey to gold-sheathed fabulousness wasn’t as straightforward as one of her early character’s movie makeover montages. In fact, Anne Hathaway has lived a fashion life that makes a case for further admiration. She is one of us.

Very early noughties Anne was the best Anne.

Admit it, this was your ideal dress in 2002 too.

Charlie Hunnam is the biggest offender here. Still a finer though.

Whoever thought adding ties to shirts using the same fabric was a good idea is a bad person.

The fabric, the boots, the cap sleeves. We miss 2004.

What we all wore to hang out in the local shopping centre.

In 2004 Anne started dating Raffaello Follieri, an Italian businessman who was later convicted of defrauding investors. They dated for four years until his arrest. Anne helped with the FBI investigation which saw her journals confiscated.

On the one hand, I imagine having the FBI ring you in relation to your boyfriend being a wanted white collar criminal is horrifying. On the other hand, a small part of you would be thinking, “I’m doing my twenties right.” Caption actually related to fashion: I think there is something charming about this Tony Awards dress. I am easily charmed.

Like the best of us, Anne loved strapless bras in the mid-noughties.

Anne: “Do I need more blush?” Anne’s friend who is too busy texting on her 2005 mobile phone: “Yeah, go for it, whatever.”

This is when Anne starts to find her fashion soul and a reliable dress style she always manages to rock.

This beauty look for 2011’s Academy Awards is perfect.

This white dress is a showstopper but Anne’s weight loss for Les Misérables distracted the media and most would-be admirers.

This dress, in which Anne won an Oscar for Les Misérables, was controversial, with many saying you could see her nipples. IT IS OBVIOUSLY THE CUT OF THE FABRIC and that’s all we have left to say on this issue.

After-party Oscars dress. Bit bland but look at that accessory!

Casually chic in New York earlier this summer.
