Anne Hathaway referenced her iconic Andy Sachs character at the Michael Kors spring 2023 show during New York Fashion Week. And she did so while sitting next to Vogue’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour no less. The irony was not lost on anyone when the actress showed up in a look that evokes the fictional assistant of Miranda Priestly (whose role is inspired by Wintour) in “Devil Wears Prada.” Dressed in head-to-toe Michael Kors, she reinterpreted her character’s brown leather jacket and black turtleneck costume, opting for a brown croc embossed coat and matching miniskirt and a black knit turtleneck sweater. Hathaway’s top bun and bangs also reflected her character’s hairstyle, rounding out the déjà vu moment. She finished with a brown clutch and black Christian Louboutin pumps.
The actress addressed the viral moment in a “Today” interview on Oct. 13, sharing that the outfit was an “accident” and her seating arrangement next to Anna Wintour was “kind of nuts.” Even the ponytail was a nod to Andy Sachs’s signature look, and that connection wasn’t lost on Hathaway. ” . . . my hairstylist, who’s so lovely and I’ve never worked with him before . . . said, ‘Oh, I know what to do.’ And he threw my hair up in a ponytail,” she said. “I looked in the mirror and I thought, Oh, that’s funny. I wonder if anybody will notice?” Clearly, the whole world did.
Next to Hathaway and Wintour, who wore a printed black-and-white maxi dress with pointy animal-print boots, sat Serena Williams. The tennis legend embraced the Barbiecore trend, donning a hot-pink suit layered over a light-pink top and finishing with silver heels and jewelry. Other notable attendees included Lori Harvey, who looked sporty and cool in a gray minidress, an oversize coat, and a Yankees cap; and Vanessa Hudgens, who appeared in a black belted halter jumpsuit and coat.
Meanwhile, the catwalk explored daytime, evening, and power dressing, similar to the fall 2022 collection. Bella Hadid modeled an all-black bra top and asymmetric skirt styled under a blazer. Paloma Elsesser walked the runway in a scarlet one-shoulder dress with a center slit. There were also some sportswear staples — from tank tops to bathing suits — as well as glittery gowns and skirts. The show notes captured the themes succinctly: “Urban Resort. Big City Polish. Juxtaposed with relaxed resort glamour. A celebration of the body.” The commercial collection didn’t reinvent the wheel, but it boasted all the stylish staples the Michael Kors customer will need for all occasions.
