Anne Hathaway made a dazzling entrance at the Cannes Film Festival on May 19 while promoting her new film, “Armageddon Time.” Hathaway, accompanied by her husband, Adam Shulman, arrived dressed in a custom Armani Privé dress embellished with white sequins. The “WeCrashed” star paired the two-piece dress with a silky shawl that doubled as a train as it trailed behind her, rivaling the red carpet itself. Hathaway styled the strapless look with silver slingback heels and Bulgari jewelry, including a Mediterranean Reverie necklace inlaid with a massive, 100,000-carat sapphire à la Kate Winslet’s prized jewel in “Titanic,” aka The Heart of the Ocean.
“A red carpet exclusive,” the brand wrote on Instagram. “All eyes turn towards the Mediterranean Reverie necklace, a stunning piece from the new Bulgari Eden The Garden of Wonders High Jewelry collection. Showcasing the enchanting splendor of a unique stone — 107,15 dazzling carats of royal blue cushion-cut sapphire from Sri Lanka — this extravagant creation will premiere in Cannes this evening.”
Simplistic yet elegant, the look is just one of many examples of Hathaway’s fashion versatility. Preceding the festival, she teased a new style direction in a three-piece Christopher John Rogers suit covered in rainbow polka-dots while promoting “WeCrashed.” At the global premiere of the Apple TV+ series in March, Hathaway made another style statement in a structural David Koma dress that featured a thigh-high slit and an asymmetrical cutout across her bodice.
Ensuring the necklace was on full display as she waved to the cameras, Hathaway — who’s played all manners of royalty, from the White Queen in “Alice in Wonderland” to Princess Mia Thermopolis in “The Princess Diaries” — evoked an undeniable air of regency on Thursday.
