It seems as if Anne Hathaway has been portraying the fashion elite for as long as she’s been showing up on our screens. From that epic makeover scene in The Princess Diaries
(not to mention the corduroy jacket
that launched a million thrifting trips across the country) to The Devil Wears Prada
, where she literally plays the gatekeeper to the most influential fashion editor of that fantasy world — and does it all in head-to-toe Chanel. Her transformations, too, have always taken a trajectory from plain to pretty — ditching the flannels, big sweaters, and knee socks for frills, ruffles, and glitter. But as Anne has shown in more recent years — and through complicated, nuanced roles that create a multifaceted image of what being a woman is — there’s more than one way to do pretty.
In honor of Anne's on-screen fashion legacy, her real-world perspective about doing things her way, and our Fuck the Fashion Rules
manifesto, we shot Anne in eight designers who might do big frills, big ruffles, and big glitter…but you'd be dead wrong to call them precious. Read our interview with Anne here
, and then come back to see all the fashion looks.
