Anne Hathaway


A muse to Versace, Valentino and Bulgari, the award winning actress has cemented her importance in fashion and film.


Anne Hathaway is an Academy Award-winning actress, known for roles including Fantine in “Les Misérables,” Mia Thermopolis in “The Princess Diaries” and Andy Sachs in “The Devil Wears Prada.” In 2023, she fronted Versace’s Icons campaign, shot by Mert & Marcus. She is also an ambassador for Bulgari. 

Hathaway made her cinematic debut in 2001, starring alongside Julie Andrews in Disney’s “The Princess Diaries.” Five years later, she shot to global fame, and was forever linked to the fashion world, as the protagonist of “The Devil Wears Prada,” where she played the ambitious assistant to Meryl Streep’s terrifying Miranda Priestly. She won an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, a Screen Actors Guild and a BAFTA Award for her role as Fantine in the 2012 film adaptation of stage production “Les Misérables.” Alongside her acting career, Hathaway has served as an activist for gender equality and women’s rights, earning her UN Women Goodwill Ambassadorship in 2016. 

In 2023, Donatella Versace hand-picked Hathaway to be the face of her Icons collection, a capsule of classic pieces inspired by the Versace spring/summer 1996 line, and dressed the actress for the Met Gala. That same year, she appeared on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter, Elle US, Interview Magazine and Vogue Hong Kong. 

Hathaway is also an ambassador for LVMH-owned jewellery house Bulgari, and enjoys a close relationship with Maison Valentino, often wearing the label for major red carpet events and film festivals.
