17 Iconic Looks Anne Hathaway, Metaphorical Fine Wine, Served Us On The Red Carpet

She gets better with every year.

They say that Meryl Streep is the actor of her generation—and the same could be said for her Devil Wears Prada co-star, Anne Hathaway for her own. 

Ever since Hathaway stepped onto the screen as the glasses-wearing frizzy haired protagonist Mia Thermopolis in 2001’s The Princess Diariesthe world was never the same, frankly speaking. 

In the two decades since, we’ve watched Hathaway’s acting and her style evolve. From her 2006 Andy Sach’s era (which arguably never ended, going by these recent pics) to multiple heavenly Oscar’s gowns, right through to her maternity fashion before welcoming her two sons, Jonathan and Jack. 

And the best part? At 40 years old, she’s literally getting better with every year. Her 2022 press tour for Apple TV+ series WeCrashed featured a wardrobe of outfits so on-point, we barely even noticed the fact she was joined by other people on the red carpet—props to her stylist here, the devil works hard but Erin Walsh clearly works harder. 

But it all began somewhere—as the young bright-eyed Queen-to-be Thermopolis, to be exact. It’s funny how art imitates life, because Hathaway now has a fashion profile quite literally fit for a royal. 

So as we celebrate Anne as the forever icon she is, we look back at some of her most memorable (and best) style moments to date.
