If you wake up and start your day scrolling through Instagram (guilty), your morning might have looked something like this. Scroll to Bella Hadid, double tap and repeat. Scroll to SKIMS swim launch, double tap and repeat. Scroll down to Anne Hathaway—wait a second—Anne Hathaway (!), triple tap and save. Anne Hathaway’s rainbow jumpsuit brought a surprising pop of color to my fashion timeline this morning and I haven’t seen a look this good since, well, the makeover scene in The devil wears Prada.
After playing the role of Andy in The devil wears Prada In 2006, Anne Hathaway cemented her status as a fashion icon. The only problem is that we’ve been in a drought of the Hathaway fashion moment. The actress doesn’t post street photos or thirst traps (let’s be real, she’s too cool for that) on Instagram, so all we have to fuel our A-list inspiration are a few moments on the Red carpet. You can imagine my surprise when I saw Anne Hathaway photographed on the streets of New York in an incredible rainbow jumpsuit. Florals for spring might not be considered revolutionary anymore, but Hathaway’s latest look certainly is.
The actress wore a rainbow polka dot jumpsuit with a cinched belt at the waist. The look was accompanied by a matching oversized blazer, purple strappy heels and minimal jewelry. Hathaway’s relaxed ponytail made the look more grounded and was the perfect choice for her appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.
The bright ensemble can be credited to New York-based designer Christopher John Rogers, who is known for creating over-the-top colorful looks. Her designs have been worn by icons ranging from Michelle Obama to Cardi B – and now Anne Hathaway can officially be added to the list.
This striped rainbow dress from Christopher John Rogers’ Spring ’21 collection adopts the same vibe as Hathaway’s look and is a great representation of Rogers’ design style.
Anne Hathaway’s personal style generally leans towards minimalism. She’s often seen wearing classic jeans, neutral sweaters and classic glam dresses – she’s honestly an elevated version of her Andy persona. Her Christopher John Rogers look reminded me of the ‘after’ of the movie’s makeover scene and I’m Of course Miranda Priestly would be delighted.
In her interview with Stephen Colbert, Anne Hathaway says she had been working on “a baby” for the past three years (Hathaway has two children) and was thrilled to be back in front of a live audience. Hope we get a lot more fashion moments from Hathaway as she starts promoting the AppleTV+ series, We crashed, about the fall of WeWork in which she stars with Jared Leto.
In the meantime, we can look forward to the return of one of OG’s fashion icons (and luckily she doesn’t need to relive all the fashion trends of the 90s since she’s worn them before). I’m counting her rainbow jumpsuit as a win for maximalist fashionistas — no need for a makeover here.
