Anne Hathaway in NYC

Posted on February 14, 2014

We’re digging the new, harder, pants-and-boots-wearing Anne.

Anne Hathaway takes a coffee-to-go in New York City.


She’s really perfected her bitchface. It’s pretty fabulous.

We could take or leave the scarf, coat and hat, but the pants and boots are definite keepers.  Actually, the more we look at that scarf, the more it seems wrong for the outfit. Still, we have to salute her for dressing mostly weather appropriate, after a week of watching ladystars struggle with the concept.

    I really, really want that hat. Where do you find a big, slouchy cashmere toque like that?

    • MilaXX

      I know! I can never find one with the right amount of slouchiness and I need it to fit my hair in.

      • Pennymac

        My hair will fit, but I’ve got a HUGE melon head. Hats never work for me. This, I love, though.

        • MilaXX

          I have both. Big head and dreadlocs. The struggle is real.

    • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

      Knit it yourself! It’s ridiculously easy.

      • marlie

        I was just about to say the same thing!

    • You get your aunt to knit you one for Christmas and she spends 3 months cursing your name because the Mongolian cashmere keeps breaking *blush*.

    • KateShouldBeWorking

      You definitely know someone who knits; this wouldn’t be a difficult project for him/her and you’d get the benefit of a custom size hat. Plus, you could go to the yarn store – which is a ton of fun to see all the colors and textures – to pick out what you like.

      • formerlyAnon

        Tossing around “the yarn store” like that should be illegal. It’s the same thing as “the high end fabric store” or “the cocaine & meth emporium.”

        • PeaceBang

          I learned how to knit two winters ago and I have a car full of yarn from those little jaunts to the Yarn (Crack) Store. I’m sure that someday I’ll get around to knitting myself little slouchy caps like Anne’s.

    • mmebam

      Etsy? All these people saying to knit it yourself do not know my struggle. I nearly stabbed myself in the eye sewing a button on a pair pants. I was wearing glasses in which the lenses are literally an inch thick.

      • leahpapa

        I’m pretty sure Etsy has an option where you can post a request and include a photo of what you want, and then vendors send you quotes to custom-make if for you (usually at a not-crazy price). A hat like this made to the wearer’s dimensions would be pretty affordable, I’d reckon.

        • Danielle

          Nah, they shut down that feature indefinitely, which is a real shame.

    • Sarah

      They got a ridiculous amount to chose from on Ebay, too. If you don’t mind waiting for it to arrive from Korea.

    • The ASOS boyfriend beanie! It’s like, $8, with free shipping both ways. I have it in black and oatmeal.

  • tereliz

    I would be 100% behind this look if the scarf was either red and black—instead of blue—or traditional leopard. THAT COAT!

  • Adrianna Grężak

    I think she looks great – she seems to have figured out her personal style. I don’t mind the scarf

    • Rhonda Shore

      I’ve always liked her casual style.

  • msdamselfly

    Love the coat and scarf.

  • sojourneryouth

    I really like the coat–it suits her, an goes with the hat, which is just okay. I am pretty sure, though, that I would get a smear of makeup on it within 15 minutes of putting it on, or drip some of that there coffee on it, so I give he props. I may not be fabulous enough for an off-white coat.

    • sagecreek

      Sure you are! And if you had her money, you’d have two or three extras, so you could just switch them out when one got stained.

      • marlie

        And if you had her money, you could send it out to be cleaned every time you wore it.

      • sojourneryouth

        Oh, I get that she has every way of keeping this thing spotless, or swapping out, but I’m a natural born klutz. I would have this thing looking like Cruella DeVil’s deamed-of dalmation coat after a meal or two.

  • @Biting Panda

    I am loving Butch Anne.

  • KinoEye

    Love it from head to toe. I have to say, I much prefer bitchface Anne to saccharine, smiley Anne. Not that I want to see her sad — but c’mon, no one’s that perky all the time.

    • marlie

      It doesn’t even seem like she’s sad, necessarily. Just… not smiling. No normal person is smiling *all* of the time.

      • KinoEye

        Exactly. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been told to just “smile a little” in my day-to-day life — I definitely have resting bitchface, but just because I’m not smiling doesn’t mean I’m sad. And it’s always men telling women to smile. You never hear a man tell another man, because women are supposed to be happy and bubbly and smiling all the time. Men are supposed to be brooding, manly men. UGH. *End feminist rant*

        • Anna

          I get, “Smile, it’s not so bad!” a lot. Which in turn really makes me scowl and also want to punch the person who said it, when otherwise I’ve just been going about my day, minding my own business.

        • SugarSnap108

          When I was in 7th grade, a *female* teacher advised me to change my “dour” baseline expression because it was “unbecoming.” I will never forget that moment, partly because it was coming from a woman.

          • KinoEye


          • Well, you know. Internalized misogyny is the most satisfying.

            Wait. Not satisfying. Shittiest. It is the shittiest.

        • I’m sorry, but that story makes the red mist descend. It pisses me off so much when we are demanded to be pleasing little objects.

          • KinoEye

            And that’s at the heart of the whole “just smile!” business. For instance: the other night, I was covering a meeting. I’d gone straight there after a frustrating and awful day and just wasn’t in the mood to listen to a presentation about maximizing the school district’s investments. A friend of the paper was there, and he sent me a text: “You could smile a little. Look happy to be here.” He wasn’t joking, and he damn sure wouldn’t have said that to me if I were a man. Later on, he engaged me on how he thought my office should be neat and clean, not messy like it usually is. He compared it (and me, by extension) to a steak dinner. “You can have a prime steak, but if it’s hanging off the plate and the potatoes are all messy, it won’t taste as good.” I asked him if he’d rather have a good steak or a nice-looking one. “I want one that tastes good and looks pretty.” I wanted to punch him in his stupid, sexist face.

          • demidaemon

            Well, he sounds like a capital A asshole. I would probably start deliberately doing things to piss him off, or get my other friends to, if that wasn’t possible. Or, as my favorite saying goes, “Fuck that noise.”

          • KinoEye

            He definitely is. I’m just happy he doesn’t work for me anymore, so I don’t have to deal with him every week. Just every now and then when we unfortunately cross paths. But I plan to make my office as messy as possible any time he comes in, if I have enough advance notice. And not smile at all.

          • demidaemon

            You go! 😉

          • Sue Shea

            what a d***!

        • lundibleu

          It is pretty much always men telling women to smile, and that sucks, it really pisses me off to hear that. Though I’ve worked with a couple of women fairly recently who told me I ought to smile more because “you look fed up and it’s annoying us” – I, somehow, refrained from telling them quite where to stick it.

        • SierraDelta

          Elizabeth II has a dour little resting face, and I’m pretty sure NO ONE ever got away with telling her to smile.

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    The coat and hat are too schlumpy. LOVE the scarf actually (it looks kind of like a DVF scarf I’ve been lusting after), the shades, the pants and the boots. So she’s almost got me won over!

  • bellafigura1

    Mmn, the coat, pants, boots combo is perfection. Hail to anyone who leaves the puffer coat at home. I’ve had mine on everyday for at least two months, and I am sick to death of it.

    Also desperate to see the bag.

  • MilaXX

    The thing I dislike is the pant/boot combo. On a dreary, slushy day like today I appreciate trying to compensate with a cheery scarf.

  • boweryboy

    All I see is Macaulay Culkin incognito.

    • sagecreek

      Oh, God, I could have gone all day without thinking of Macaulay Culkin.

      • All year, possibly.

        • Alyssa

          Or, you know, for the rest of eternity.

  • if anyone knows where that boots are from, please post *drools*

  • Danielle

    Loathe that hat, but taking lessons on how to improve my RBF.

  • Mismarker

    Bitchy face Anne is my favorite Anne.

    Any chance we will have some 50 Shades set photos today? Movie releases one year from today, kittens. I feel the need to snark.

    • Anna

      Agree on both points. Yes, please some set photos from the BDSM romantic comedy we all love to hate.

      Annie, I’d say I’d cut you for your pants but you’d probably cut me first just for looking at you. Love everything else too.

  • hillmad

    How can anyone wear a coat that doesn’t stay closed in this weather?

    • sagecreek

      I used to do that when I lived in Chicago — if you went into a building, say, to get coffee, it wasn’t unusual to get overheated. So, you leave the coat open for a few minutes outside.

    • SierraDelta

      I never zip my down mega coat. I live in Minnesota, and I concentrate more on keeping my extremities warm — ears, face, hands, feet. Usually I’m so gloved up that my fingers are too padded to easily maneuver zippers or buttons.

  • sagecreek

    Damn, she looks great…and WEATHER APPROPRIATE!

  • AzSportsGirl

    I’ll have that “Cocktail of the Day”

  • AzSportsGirl

    Not wanting to anger my fellow Bitter Kittens — but it’s 80* here today and expected to maybe hit 90* on Sunday. I think T&Lo should immediately schedule a signing here in the desert. I’ll have a fabulous little poolside cocktail party at my house for you!

    • marlie

      You know ALL of the snow-bound bitter kittens are going to show up at your door, right?

      • AzSportsGirl

        All are welcome! It’s wonderful here. Perfect time of year.

    • Kathy

      I’m living vicariously through you. 🙂

  • Emily Smith

    The more I see leather skinny pants, the more I want a pair, except I would have no where to wear them so I’m not going to fork the cash over anytime soon. Does anyone have a pair? Opinions, thoughts?

    • Erica

      I don’t, but a good friend recently boughtvher first pair, and she’s been trying to sell me on their merits.

  • teensmom99

    Weather appropriate while also Be Me (hello, white coat/leather pants). Love it.

  • YoungSally

    Obviously this picture was taken way before yesterday’s storm. She would be wearing rubber wading pants if it were today.

  • ashtangajunkie

    I am realllllly wanting a white coat to wear with my leather pants now! She looks great.

  • Janet B

    What I like best about this look: no awkward handbag to pimp.

  • ovarB

    In my head she is saying with this look “We’ll always have Paris BEYOTCHES!!”

  • Tatiana Luján

    I love the coat and the pants.

  • ShaoLinKitten

    I am not an irrational Hatha-hater, but I find everything she wears so damn… manicured? Or overly chosen? Or something. And pretentious. It’s probably just me.

  • marlie

    I hate the boots, but I love the whole rest of the outfit, especially the scarf and coat.

  • Rand Ortega

    A red coat/black hat or red hat/black coat would’ve hit this out of the park. Even putting purple in the mix would’ve been awesome. The off white seems soooo…non put together? The boots & leathers are fantastic. I’m also loving this brooding Annie bitchface persona.

  • So, it’s cold enough that her nose is bright pink but she isn’t wearing gloves. Reminding us that she’s married?

    • marlie

      Of she could be like me, and always manages to misplace her gloves (multiple pairs) by leaving them in the pockets of another coat, in a purse, or in the car.

      • Alyssa

        I can always find one glove. I even try to keep a pair in the glovebox, just to always have a backup, and those are now missing as well.

    • snarkykitten

      I never wear gloves because I always end up having to use my fingers for something [texting, fishing change out of my wallet]

      yes, I realize Miss Anne [the two of us are on a first name level, jealous?] has handlers and minions to do all that for her, but y’anno.

      • Gatto Nero

        Cashmere fingerless gloves. I swear by them.
        Driving, shopping, keys, phone, never have to take them off.

  • Alyssa

    I love the pants. I want the pants. First I need to be motivated to go to the gym to get the body for the pants. My husband even told me he’d buy me a pair of leather pants if I would just put forth the effort. Still too lazy!

  • Joanna

    Maybe it’s the weather, but if that’s her bitchface, it makes her look more like she’s been crying.

    Don’t get me wrong, I think Annie is great, notwithstanding all of the drama from last year’s pole dance and all, but I kinda liked Annie as the geeky girl rather than this harder diva-wanna-be version.

    • Sly

      I loved Geeky girl, she looked so much happier.

  • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

    Hardcore bitch-face Annie? What a lovely twist of events.

  • Sly

    You know, I may be over analyzing this but when I used to see her, pre oscars, and pre LETS MAKE THE WHOLE WORLD HATE ANNE HATHAWAY, I used to see a genuine smile, now when I see her smile, it seems almost like a plea for people not to come up with something negative to say. I love her, ever since watching The Princess Diaries, and when all the hate came all I could wonder is why? Now I almost feel like there’s a shield, I wonder if that’s why she’s gone from girly, Valentino chic, to hard fierceness. I hope she’s over all of that.Anyway, that’s my rant of the day. Love the coat, love the scarf.

    • demidaemon

      She could just be cold as well. I know people don’t usually make the prettiest faces when they are freezing their asses off.

      • Sly


  • crash1212

    Love the outfit. It always amazes me how you can tell just how cold it is by looking at the skin and hands…almost frozen. Maybe not so much bitch face as I’m f-ing cold.

  • She’s in an Audrey Hepburn biker gang – delightful!

  • Jecca2244

    in my next life i want to wear leather pants and boots like this. (In my current life i am too curvy for this look)

  • Lilithcat

    Gloves. She needs gloves. It’s cold out there!

  • Melanie

    love the pants & boots. just imagine if she had gone a touch more butch with her top half as well, i would have kvelled!

  • Gatto Nero

    Well done, head to toe.
    She looks frozen, poor thing.

  • demidaemon

    She is weather appropriate. I don’t know about half-leather pants though. They are different, to be sure.

  • formerlyAnon

    Leather pants are an irrational* dislike on almost anyone with me. Exceptions made on a case-by-basis, of which she is not one. Nice coat, though.

    *Truly irrational. I may be the only person in North America who LOVES the ugly-attractive man but has a net negative reaction to motorcycle leathers.

  • why is she hiding her handbag? is it an embarrassment?

  • macwell

    I think she looks appropriately NY chic here.

  • jabes

    Not a fan of those boots. I thought they were ugly when she wore them at Sundance, and dislike them even more now that I can see more of them. i think the height is unflattering and they’re too big around her ankles/calves. I think she would have looked much better with some sort of variation on a combat boot — a little higher up on her leg and laced up so there’s not that weird gap between her legs and the tops of the boots.

  • quiltrx

    I love the scarf, but I don’t think it goes with the coat.
    And I don’t like the boots–they look sort of floppy-pirate-style with the really tight pants.

  • MissusBee

    Am not seeing bitchface as much as hangover/PMS. Which are also great ways to accessorize an outfit.

  • LaSylphide

    Love the coat. The boots would be fine with dungarees, but not with tight leather pants: need heeled boots with them.

  • CatherineRhodes

    Leather pants to go out for coffee? Yeesh.
