Anne Hathaway



Halfway through Anne Hathaway’s celebrity timeline—between 2001’s The Princess Diaries, which made her a star (at least among the tween set), and 2012’s Les Misérables, which had Hugh Jackman declaring her Fantine worthy of an Oscar—came the young actress’s fashion-breakthrough year: 2008. Featured for the first time on the cover of Vogue, Hathaway had come a long way from her rather-less-than-glamorous New Jersey roots. Sounding a lot like the naïve assistant she played in the megahit The Devil Wears Prada, Hathaway revealed to the magazine that her lack of style savvy could be attributed to having grown up in an upper middle class household where “spending a lot of money on clothes was not respected.”[1] Now that she had been named one of Vogue’s 10 Best Dressed, Hathaway explained, she had learned to trust her instincts and “see fashion as something that could liberate you rather than define you in a negative way.”[2]

Learning to trust herself was a process born in the wake of her disastrous four-year relationship with Raffaello Follieri, a man—convicted of fraud and money-laundering in the Vati-Con scandal, not long after their breakup—“whose main distinction,” observed Vogue, “seems to have been a desire to ape the lifestyles of the rich and famous.”
[3] Throwing out all the clothes and other things that reminded her of their time together, Hathaway struggled to rediscover her style and herself: “I realized that the past five years of my life had been spent accumulating things I like but never asked if I love.” Of her new wardrobe selections, and perhaps hinting at her reexamined romantic expectations, she told Vogue, “I’m looking for a pared-down truth.”[4]
By the time her third Vogue cover story appeared, in December 2012, the newly vegan actress had honed her physique to play a sexy but bruising Selina Kyle in The Dark Knight Rises, and then had her luxurious chestnut locks shorn for her portrayal of the fallen, dying Fantine in Les Misérables. Meanwhile, in her private life, she had quietly found a gem: an actor turned jewelry designer named Adam Shulman, her “true love—the full-on romantic, till-death-do-us-part real deal.”[5] When Adam Green, the writer of the cover story, inquired about the wedding date, Hathaway told him it wouldn’t be for at least another year. Only four days later, paparazzi pics were published of the bride atop the spectacular cliffs of Big Sur where the secret ceremony took place, in a fairy-tale gown that her friend Valentino had designed especially for her. “I’m turning 30, and—I hope this isn’t obnoxious to say,” Hathaway confessed, “I feel prettier, and I feel much more myself. I guess I just feel much more satisfied with less now.”[6]
