Anne Hathaway, My Lady Crush

Anne Hathaway is such a striking star in both her movies and fashion. And to me, she is one of the few actresses of today that grab my attention and whose films I enjoy watching

For the past several years she has been a major crush of mine in la femme world. I loved her performances in The Devil Wears PradaBecoming Jane, and as the rodeo rider wife of Jack in Brokeback Mountain. My boys and I even enjoyed her voice performances in such family favorites as Studio Ghibli's The Cat Returns as the (English version) voice of Haru and Rio: The Movie as the voice of the female blue macaw, Jewel.

In the Dark Knight Rises, Anne shines as Selina Kyle especially opposite Christian Bale's Bruce Wayne. Of course Christian is my #1 pretend boyfriend and any woman who can create such dynamic on-screen chemistry with my main squeeze has got to be good! 

And I thought sparks only happened between me and Christian!

I am really anticipating her upcoming movie Les Miserables out this Christmas. I've found that my favorite roles of Anne are her more darker, heart-breaking roles. She exudes a sort of sadness that comes through the screen and makes you feel it. I even got teary-eyed watching the Les Mis featurette with her singing "I Dreamed A Dream". 

Of course off-screen, she has a totally gorgeous fashion sense. Her style has a sort of romantic sophistication to it. It's breathtaking yet dreamy. Also, I am in love with her new short hair. She not only looks great with long hair but she looks even lovelier with short hair. I have great admiration for ladies who brave the scissors and cut those locks off and afterwards totally own it! I've done it and it does feel quite liberating and fantastic at the same time! Anne joins that small selection of other actresses that really rock their pixie hair cuts (Judi Dench is my #1 for ladies that rock the short 'do).

Here are some of my favorites of Anne:

Anne wore a strapless ivory silk point d'esprit tulle wedding gown by Valentino for her Big Sur wedding to Adam Shulman. Her flowy and feminine dress featured a lace headband and veil, and painted in a soft pink hue. (Photo: VOGUE)


 For the London Premiere of the 'Dark Knight Rises', she wore a loose-fitting Gucci gown with flowery details on neckline with matching gold heels. (Photos: Ian Gavan/Getty Images)

For the 'Dark Knight Rises' London Premiere after party, Anne wore a J. Mendel semi-wrap white dress with silver embroidery. In addition, she wore custom pointy toed, silver Casadei heels which were a perfect match to her simple and feminine dress. (Photos: Getty Images; VOGUE)


At the New York Premiere of the 'Dark Knight Rises', Anne dazzled wearing a beautiful white Prabal Gurung gown. Her dress had a deep plunging neckline and cowl back with a jeweled exposed corset. (Photos: hawtcelebs.com)


I absolutely love this Valentino Couture gown that Anne wore to the New York City Ballet Fall Gala. Her billowy, long-sleeve gown had a 70s vibe to it with a colorful print and a Fall-like feel. (Photos: Getty Images; C.Smith/WENN) 


And here, Anne pulls off couture like most celebrities could only dream of doing:

  2. love it jess! I've always thought that you and Kristina dislike her along with Natalie Portman and K. Stewart. But I was wrong! I've always loved A. H. ever since "The Princess Diary." And she blew me away in "Rachel Getting Married." She's always been a supporter of LGBT cause and a real america's sweetheart. Thanks j!

    1. Yes, I love Anne! She's not your typical looking Hollywood Starlet and not annoying like Natalie and Kristen ;-) Oh and don't forget to throw in Gwyneth Paltrow into my dislike list too!!! Christmas is fast approaching, let's try to find a good day to get together!!!
