Starring the good, the bad and the ugly, ‘Look of the week’ This is a regular series dedicated to revealing the outfits that have been talked about the most in the last seven days.
Life imitated art in the front row of the Michael Kors show on Wednesday, with assigned seats placing Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour and actress Anne Hathaway side by side in a display of PR genius.
Wintour, as always, was dressed in her signature look (a pair of dark sunglasses framing her eyes and her prominent blonde bob), but Hathaway’s outfits were also popular. Dressed in a black knit turtleneck, a chestnut brown fur coat and a high ponytail with a harsh fringe, Hathaway was a facsimile of her on-screen character Andrea Sachs in the 2006 film “The Devil Wears Prada.”

Based on Lauren Weisberger’s 2003 novel of the same name, the film chronicles Sachs’ trials and tribulations as she clumsily moves through the upper echelons of the fashion industry in pursuit of a career in journalism. In short order, she ends up as the personal assistant to the abusive magazine editor Miranda Priestly (played by Meryl Streep), a character inspired by the well-known Wintour herself.
Nearly 17 years later, “The Devil Wears Prada” is still one of the funniest exposés about the industry’s absurdity. Seeing Hathaway sitting shoulder-to-shoulder with the film’s muse in an outfit that looked straight out of Andrea Sachs’s character’s wardrobe (in the context of an actual fashion show, meanwhile) was something the internet quickly took full circle. with both hands “Andy Sachs, 2022 is coming!” wrote the Instagram account of the fashion watchdog Diet Prada, in a message that has been liked by more than 250,000 people since yesterday afternoon.
