As this year’s CFDA Fashion Awards host, Anne Hathaway was expected to serve looks on the red carpet—and in true Anne Hathaway fashion, she did deliver.
Andy Sachs, her iconic Devil Wears Prada character, would be proud to see how far her style has evolved through the years.
For the event, presented by Amazon Fashion at the American Museum of Natural History, the 41-year-old actress wore a look reminiscent of Britney Spears’ iconic double-denim outfit from the 2001 American Music Awards.

The stunning ensemble included the $1,790 “Vannesa” strapless corset bustier top in dark-wash denim with buttons along the center front and white floral prints. The bottom half of her flattering outfit featured the $2,790 “Brynley” floor-sweeping low-waist denim maxi skirt in a lighter wash with watercolor floral prints and a dramatic long train.
As an ambassador for Bulgari, Hathaway naturally accented her ensemble with striking pieces from the Italian luxury fashion house, curated by stylist Erin Walsh, whose clients include Selena Gomez, Elizabeth Banks, and Sofia Carson.

Her chandelier diamond necklace clearly stood out, with multiple layers of diamonds and a 31-carat cushion-cut sapphire set in platinum. She also accessorized with the High Jewelry Serpenti coil bracelet, a cocktail ring, and a pair of sapphire and diamond drop earrings.
For her beauty look, Gucci Westman gave her glossy nude lips, rosy cheeks, and well-defined eyes with eyeliner, mascara, and neutral eyeshadow. Orlando Pita, meanwhile, simply blow-dried Anne’s brunette hair and styled it in loose waves.

The archival number featured several feminine elements, including the tulle draping and semi-sheer floral-embroidered lace that showed a glimpse of her underwear. It also included black sequined rosette appliques on the shoulder, across the bust, and down the floor-length skirt with a ruffled mermaid hem.
Orlando Pita styled Anne’s dark brown tresses in a bun, allowing her to display her diamond-encrusted earrings. She ditched her Bulgari necklace and further accessorized with a few rings and a dainty bracelet.
Her smokey eyeshadow, mascara, and peachy pink lip color rounded out her glam.

The host position for Anne Hathaway was added at the last minute. Sarah Jessica Parker, originally assigned to host the awards show, backed out “due to unforeseen circumstances.”
In addition to hosting the event, Anne and designer Narciso Rodriguez co-presented the American Womenswear Designer of the Year Award to Catherine Holstein for Khaite.
Other notable winners include Serena Williams (Fashion Icon Award), twins Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s The Row (American Accessories Designer of the Year), Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop (Innovation Award), and Jonathan Anderson’s J.W. Anderson and Loewe (International Designer of the Year).
