~How to Dress Like... Anne Hathaway

By eHow Arts & Entertainment Editor

Actress Anne Hathaway is known for her clean, classic style, bold color choices and sophisticated accessories. Despite her youth, her red-carpet dresses and classy casual look are turning her into a Hollywood fashion icon. Adopt Anne Hathaway's look for any occasion and wait for the compliments.

Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Look for vintage or vintage-inspired designs. Try to embody classic Hollywood glamour. Stay away from overly frilly or complicated clothing. Stick with understated sophisticated cuts.
Embrace bold colors. Ruby reds, royal blues and sunny yellows break up the monotony of the usual black cocktail dress. Anne loves bright, attention-getting colors and expect a lot of attention.
Go black and white. Anne is regularly photographed in dresses that incorporate black and white elements. Wear a black dress with white embellishment or vice versa. The right amount of contrast makes your dress flirty.
Wear a short dress. Anne regularly wears tea-length or shorter dresses to major Hollywood events. Pick dresses with unique neckline or cut suggestive of high fashion to maintain proper formality.
Minimize your accessories. Choose delicate, yet fabulous earrings, a simple clutch and a pair of fabulous heels to complete your look. Enhance your overall look without detracting from the dress, which is the main attraction.
Finish your look with a free flowing hair style or twisting it into a simple up-do. Dare to confidently wear a bold shade of red lipstick.
