If you’re a fan of The Devil Wears Prada then you’ve likely rewatched the fashion film countless times. As a result, it's likely that you can remember each and every fashion moment like the back of your hand.
Lo and behold, so does Anne Hathaway, and she has just shared her favourite ensemble from the 2006 film.
In a cover story with Interview magazine, the Academy Award winning actor was given the opportunity to answer a series of questions from famous fans and friends, starting with designer Michael Kors.
The accessories designer took one for the team, asking what fans around the world have always wondered—what was Anne’s favourite look from Andy Sachs’ wardrobe?
Surprisingly, it wasn’t the famous Chanel boots that she struts past Emily and Giselle Bündchen’s character in the Runway offices. But, fret not, her favourite look still includes a nod to Chanel.
“Michael Kors and I used to live in the same building. We had the most fun lobby in New York at the time,” Hathway recalled, explaining how the two became friends.
She continued, “But it’s a chicken-and-egg question, because what I think of as my style is so influenced by getting to work with Patricia Field and having conversations with her about how to put outfits together.”
“I love what I wore to the James Hoult party, that velvet Chanel coat that went to the knees, and then the miniskirt and the stockings and the slouched boots,” she revealed, adding, “I think it was a sample because I kept finding straight pins in it.”
Then, calling upon another designer friend, Marc Jacobs, Anne was asked whether there were any fashion moments throughout her career that she regrets.
“There was this one time where I was very young and dressed myself for an event, and I stepped onto a red carpet and did not know my dress was see-through, and I wasn’t wearing a bra,” she said.
“It was a very long carpet, and at no point did any of the people in that wall of photographers stop to give me a heads-up or offer me a jacket.”
“I’m not naive. I don’t expect that, but it’s something I would do for another person if I saw it. And so I would erase that, just because it sucked.”
There you have it, we may have only seen glimpses of her ensemble as she skipped through New York streets to find Hoult's penthouse party, but clearly, that outfit isn't one to forget.
