Fashion Icon Friday: Anne Hathaway
This week’s fashion icon is one that has maintained one of the more glamorous and exemplary Hollywood reputations while creating a seemingly unstoppable influence on today’s fashion. We dig it.
Born Anne Jacqueline Hathaway to Gerald Hathaway, lawyer, and Kathleen Ann, actress, it wasn’t until 1999 that this native New Yorker began popping up on our radar with the short-lived TV series Get Real. Almost immediately after that, Anne landed the role of young Mia Thermopolis in the wildly popular tween movie, The Princess Diaries. Since then, Anne’s won an Emmy for her voice-over on The Simpsons and starred in another cult phenomenon you may know as The Devil Wears Prada. In 2008 she began challenging preconceived notions of her acting capabilities with roles in more serious movies including Rachel Getting Married, Love and Other Drugs, and The Dark Knight Rises. Today, we’re anticipating her lead role in the Hollywood adaptation of the Broadway hit, Les Miserables.
Anne Hathaway has done more in Hollywood than most actors her age and she does it looking impeccable. (Maybe she did learn a little something about fashion working for Meryl Streep’s Wintour-like character.) The buzz she’s generated on screen, as well as on the red carpet, is nowhere near over. She may very well be one of the greatest things to happen to pop culture today and we can’t see what she does (or wears) next!
“Zizou dances in Madrid” - by Dan Leydon
“I’ve never appraoched Zidane as a subject for illustration before. What always struck me about his style of play was his grace of movement. I wanted to show him in a quite skillful pose so I went with the behind the leg drag back. I even toyed with putting a pink tutu on him as a humorous nod to his balletic movements.”
I love photography because it’s a way to find some beauty in anything, depending on what your vision is. It’s also a fascinating way to see how other people view the world what they think is beautiful or important. Really, my photography is a way for me to remember the beautiful and or important things and just a way for me to hopefully make an impression somehow.
My gear is minimal, I mostly stick to my Nikon d90, but I think photography is mostly just having a vision and then having enough patience to try and carry it out.
