SOURCE – Anne Hathaway has navigated her years in the spotlight in a flurry of lace, tulle, sequins and – in one memorable instance – a high-fashion puffer. But even after the subtle yet significant style pivot that coincided with her 40th birthday (and made Vogue sit up and take notice), when it comes to life away from the red carpet, Anne, like most women, wants an edited capsule wardrobe of classics she can turn to time and again.
Enter Donatella Versace, who aims to provide exactly that with her new Versace Icons collection, an edit of essentials that draws on the designer’s own closet – as well as the house’s decades of experience dressing powerful women, from Princess Diana to Michelle Obama to Lady Gaga. The designer hand-picked Hathaway as a face of the campaign, which finds her wearing a sculpted bustier corset styled with jeans, a black jersey dress with Medusa detailing on the straps inspired by the spring/summer 1996 collection (“It reminds me of Moonstruck!” says Anne), and a fitted black grain de poudre suit based on Donatella’s own day-to-day uniform.
Anne “loves and understands great clothes”, says the designer, who, when asked about the pieces she personally couldn’t live without, starts with “black pants – always. Amazing tailored trousers that fit superbly. Long black trousers with a platform boot underneath are an essential for me, and a great black tailored jacket,” adds Donatella. “Beautifully made, perfectly fitted. Fierce. A little reminder about who is in charge!”
Donatella has “long admired Anne because she is an extraordinary artist with a strong point of view about her career”, she says. “She also uses her platform for good as a UN goodwill ambassador. She is a woman after my own heart.” As for the Versace woman Anne embodies in the Icons collection, which is available from 3 April: “She’s a little bit dangerous,” says the designer in behind-the-scenes video footage captured on the set of the campaign shoot. “Dangerous but sexy.”
Hathaway has turned to Donatella’s unmistakable brand of Italian glamour on many occasions in the past – the star wore Atelier Versace sequins to make her return to the red carpet at the 2020 Critics’ Choice Awards following the birth of her second child, and more recently attended Versace’s blockbuster autumn/winter 2023 runway show in LA wearing a high-shine LBD and a very Donatella pair of platform boots. Sure enough, the designer cites that particular outing from Anne as a personal favourite. “The perfect little black dress.”
Hathaway herself sums up the new Versace Icons collection as “timeless elegance with an edge”. But it was not only the clothes that left a lasting impression on her, but also Donatella’s “heart, generosity and kindness”. “She and everyone in the Versace family have been so incredibly welcoming and supportive of me,” Hathaway says. “What a thrill to be a Versace woman!”
SOURCE – Jeremy Strong and Anne Hathaway play husband and wife in the new coming-of-age drama Armageddon Time, while in real life the two share a special bond.
In this week’s issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday, the pair recall first meeting while making the 2019 film Serenity.
Says Hathaway, “I think the bond became stronger and more personal after that because I spent time with Jeremy’s character on Serenity. It was so lovely when we had the personal moments on that film.”
The Oscar winner, 39, describes how their “lives kind of opened up in a similar way at a similar time in that we both became parents at roughly the same time.”
“From my perspective,” she says, “this gorgeous friendship has taken root.”
Hathaway is mom to two sons with husband Adam Shulman, while Strong, 43, and wife Emma Wall have three daughters.
“My second daughter learned how to walk in the house we were sharing,” Strong says of a vacation home his and Hathaway’s families recently shared with friends.
Their second film together, Armageddon Time, sees them playing a middle-class Jewish couple raising two boys in writer-director James Gray’s semi-autobiographical story about his youth in Queens.
“We didn’t talk very much when we were making this,” admits the Succession Emmy winner. “We did when we needed to. I think there’s a tacit trust that I know that I feel toward Annie and I think we both felt with each other. We have a shorthand with each other.”
It’s a sentiment echoed by Hathaway: “I think that because we were friends, we both felt a real ease for forgetting each other. It’s like, you can take me for granted, you don’t have to worry about me. So it’s that great feeling that you have when you’re with a scene partner and you just step off a really high cliff together at the same time. Our friendship let us do that in a way that felt really organic.”
Armageddon Time is in theaters Friday.
SOURCE – Anne Hathaway is not one to be typecast. A gritty, down-to-earth princess, a young lover diagnosed with early onset Parkinson’s disease, a sister recovering from alcohol abuse… and the list goes on. Yet, different as each role may be, Anne brings an arresting demeanour and vulnerable relatability that is impossible to ignore and has seen her win a slew of glittering accolades.
Stepping into her 40s this November, Anne remains fervently dedicated to her craft. Today is the US release date of Armageddon Time, a film by James Gray on 1980s America and the social and racial complexities that come with realising the American Dream. Anne plays Esther Graff, where she stars alongside Jeremy Strong and Anthony Hopkins. “It was a challenging, surprising and incredibly rewarding experience”, Anne recalls. “James has an endearing habit of cackling behind the monitor – we got into a twenty minute improv one day with the cast reacting to something on TV and me coming in and out of the scene trying to feed everyone pickles and I thought he was going to pass out he was laughing so hard. It sounds random but it’s one of my favourite memories.”
This light-hearted camaraderie stands in sharp contrast to the darker nature of the film, which is something that Anne acknowledges. “The movie’s subject matter and themes are weighty, so we laughed and got goofy whenever we could.”
Besides her role in Armageddon Time, the actress will play Dr. Rebecca Saint John in Eileen, a film adaptation of the eponymous novel set to be directed by William Oldroyd. Anne is also set to star in Rebecca Miller’s She Came to Me, and her recent Apple TV+ series with Jared Leto, WeCrashed, was released to great acclaim. If three feature films and a TV series wasn’t enough, the actress just wrapped filming Mother’s Instinct with close friend Jessica Chastain, marking another film with heavy subject matter, this time toeing the line of Anne’s limits. “That was the hardest role I have played”, Anne reveals. “It touched my worst fear and I almost backed out of the film because I didn’t know if I could go there as an actress.”
A mother to a 6-year-old and a 2-year-old, Anne joins the chorus of voices whose lives have been forever changed by their children. While some take a step back from their careers, Anne felt decidedly the opposite, detailing her growing drive and commitment to acting in an interview with the Wall Street Journal. In her newfound sense of self came something of a fashion renaissance, which was in no small part due to her ongoing collaboration with stylist Erin Walsh. Anne nailed dopamine dressing in a loud Christopher John Rogers three-piece set on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert shortly before she stole the show at Cannes Film Festival in an array of breathtaking ensembles. Arriving at the premiere of Armageddon Time (which was met with a 7-minute standing ovation), Anne channelled her inner Mia Thermopolis, looking every bit the Princess of Genovia that won our hearts some 21 years ago.
For Anne, fashion is about having fun and not being afraid to colour outside the lines. But she acknowledges that it can also stand to mean so much more. “Fashion is a huge economy with an enormous environmental and cultural impact”, Anne muses. “It follows that as it has so much power, reach, influence and oftentimes wealth, it has the potential to be a tool for social change.”
So what’s next for the actress? Amidst her constant stream of success and abundance of upcoming roles and projects, Anne’s bucket list for her next chapter in life is simple. “Surprise myself as much as possible. Surf more. Get a decent camera and use it often. Make as many memories with my family as possible.”

The actress recently sat down with ET’s Rachel Smith to discuss her upcoming movie, Armageddon Time, but also took a moment to rave about the possibility of making a Princess Diaries 3 and the chance to work with the “magnificent” Julie Andrews once again.
“I would more than entertain it, I’m pulling for it,” Hathaway shared. “If there’s any way to get Julie Andrews involved, I think we would make it work. We would go to where she was and put a green screen behind her and just make it happen.”
However, having worked with the legendary actress twice before — as well as many other A-listers — doesn’t make Hathaway immune to getting starstruck. She opened up to ET about clamming up on the set of Armageddon Time when she first met co-star Anthony Hopkins.
“I’m not embarrassed. I think it would happen to anybody,” she shared. “I don’t even think he noticed. I think he just accepts people in whatever state they’re in. I went home, and I shook it off, and I came back in the next day, and then we found each other.”
Hathaway said making the film — which follows a Jewish family living in Queens in the 1980s — was a “very personal” experience for her, noting that one of the underlying themes is the idea that “family’s more complicated often than we feel comfortable discussing.”
“This is a film about a home in which love and violence coexist,” she explained. “I think that it’s going to resonate with people, a lot of people, that family is a complicated thing.”
She also shared a personal connection to the movie through her own family life.
“I wanted to bring aspects of the film home, because my husband is Jewish and so I had a lot of questions for him,” Hathaway shared. “It was not lost on me, the extraordinary responsibility of playing a Jewish woman, when these aren’t roles that come around very often, and what it meant for me who is not raised that way and was not born into that religion.”
“I wanted to make sure I did a good job and I covered every base and didn’t leave any stone unturned,” she added. “My husband was an absolutely invaluable resource to me in this one.”
Armageddon Time is in theaters Oct. 28.
