Anne Hathaway looks like Andy Sachs in her latest Instagram post
Andrea Sachs, is that you?
After nearly two decades since The devil wears Prada has been freed, Anne Hathaway seemed to keep the spirit of his iconic character’s wardrobe alive in an outfit that’s essentially Andy (post-metamorphosis, that is). Channeling her role through fashion, Hathaway wore a Valentino floral mini dress with a built-in collar and long sleeves. She paired the look with sheer black tights, platform boots and a dark peacoat.
As her outfit drew comparisons to the one Andy wore that eventually got her noticed by her boss Miranda Presley – an all-black ensemble consisting of a mini dress, sheer tights, knee-high boots and necklaces Chanel in layered gold chain – it was her wispy bangs that really reminded fans of her beloved character. “Oh Andy, you’re so chic!” ❤️❤️❤️❤️,” one commenter wrote. Another added, “Andy is back 😍.”
Rather than The devil wears Prada, others thought Hathaway’s look was very Emily in Paris. And it makes sense. Costume designer Patricia Field created a wardrobe not only for Andy, but also for Lily Collin’s character, Emily, years later.
Speaking of Andy’s most iconic looks with In the style, Field explained, “In The devil wears Prada, I was able to design a transformer mode bow for Andy [Anne Hathaway]. Everyone’s still talking about the makeover montage that took her from a bumpy cerulean blue sweater to a fabulous head-to-toe Chanel. For the first time, she allowed herself to recognize the power of fashion, and the public recognized it too.” As for Emily, she said, “Yes, his style was intentionally cliched, but he was also cheerful and whimsical and allowed him to fully express his enthusiasm to be there. I also loved taking something traditionally Parisian like an oversized Chanel jacket and pairing it with a patchwork dress by a local artist. Luckily, Lily takes the lead from me, which makes it fun for all of us.” At the very least, they both have Chanel in common.
