Anne Hathaway's Rooftop Photo Shoot Was Captured by Greg Williams
Anne Hathaway is promoting her new film The Witches, but social distancing during the pandemic means all red carpet premieres are canceled. Knowing this, she enlisted her stylist, Rebecca Corbin-Murray, a glam team, and a photographer, Greg Williams, to help her stage a beautiful moment on the Harrods rooftop in London in celebration of the HBO Max movie's release. "No premiere, no problem," she wrote on Instagram underneath a photo of herself in a fall 2019 Ralph & Russo Couture gown that can truly only be described as dramatic. Dramatic and intricate! The Ralph & Russo team followed up with behind-the-scenes looks from the atelier where team members created the gown from raspberry tulle, showcasing its elaborate design details.
We're not at all surprised that Anne and Rebecca set their sights on this number once they decided to go bold, and we can't help but note the obvious: if Anne had been at a typical movie premiere pre-COVID, her look may not have been quite so sensational. Think of all the simpler LBDs on red carpets past. But that just speaks to our current moment and the idea that we're all using fashion as a method of escapism during these trying times. Perhaps now more than ever, it's important for celebrities to work with their stylists to dream up captivating looks for their fans. After all, we instantly added The Witches to our must-watch list after appreciating Anne's dress and wondering just how much it might capture the spirit of the character she plays. Color us intrigued.
