Anne Hathaway Has ‘Devil Wears Prada’ Moment With Anna Wintour

Channeling “The Devil Wears Prada” During New York Fashion Week? Groundbreaking.

But this time, the devil in question is wearing Michael Kors, as Anne Hathaway sat in the front row next to Anna Wintour (the inspiration for Miranda Priestly in “TDWP”) at the designer’s New York Fashion Week show Wednesday.

Additionally, Hathaway’s look for the show — a brown crocodile-print leather jacket layered over a black turtleneck sweater — was nearly identical to that of her character, Andy Sachs, in the 2006 film’s ending scene.

Fans couldn’t get over how much the actress resembled her on-screen alter ego, especially with her Andy-esque bangs.

“Anne Hathaway refers to herself as the devil wearing prada (17 years ago) as she sits next to Anna Wintour during fashion week… the hold she has on me,” a tweeted.

Another called the moment “actually iconic”, while a third joked“I know Anne Hathaway wants the devil to wear prada to get a SO BAD sequel.”

In the beloved film adaptation of Lauren Weisberger’s bestselling novel, Hathaway’s Sachs joins the staff of a top fashion glossy (based on Vogue, of course) as an assistant to the icy editor-in-chief, Priestly (played by Meryl Streep). After a rocky start, Sachs gets a stylish makeover and impresses her boss before finally leaving the magazine.

While Hathaway was not the first choice for the role (20th Century Fox wanted Rachel McAdams for the role), she certainly did a good job.

The “Princess Diaries” star has been killing the real-life fashion game lately, with looks Priestly would be proud of.

Hathaway stunned at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival in an Armani Privé sequined gown and jaw-dropping sapphire collar, rocking a colorful corset while doing the “WeCrashed” press, and has even spurred the return of the 2000s pouf hairstyle.

Now she’s also bringing back one of the most iconic films of the era.
