Actress Anne Hathaway made a reference to her iconic character from “The Devil Wears Prada” during Michael Kors’ spring 2023 fashion show at New York Fashion Week. Seated next to Vogue’s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, Hathaway donned an outfit that evoked her character’s brown leather jacket and black turtleneck costume. She wore a brown croc embossed coat with a matching miniskirt, a black knit turtleneck sweater, a brown clutch, and black Christian Louboutin pumps. Her top bun and bangs also reflected her character’s hairstyle. Hathaway revealed in an interview that the outfit was unintentional and her seating arrangement next to Wintour was “kind of nuts.”
Other notable attendees at the show included Serena Williams, who embraced the Barbiecore trend with a hot-pink suit and silver heels, Lori Harvey in a sporty gray minidress and Yankees cap, and Vanessa Hudgens in a black belted halter jumpsuit and coat.
The show itself explored daytime, evening, and power dressing, with Bella Hadid modeling an all-black bra top and asymmetric skirt styled under a blazer, and Paloma Elsesser walking the runway in a scarlet one-shoulder dress with a center slit. The collection featured urban resort and relaxed resort glamour themes, as well as sportswear staples and glittery gowns and skirts. The Michael Kors collection did not reinvent the wheel but offered stylish staples for all occasions.
Overall, the show was a success, with Hathaway’s accidental nod to her iconic character providing a memorable moment for attendees and fashion enthusiasts alike.
