We said the other day that Anne Hathaway might be struggling a bit with the question of how to dress to promote her new movie (which has received a waiver from SAG AFTRA to allow her to do so) when actors in non-indie releases and television shows are forbidden from doing so. But we think it’s interesting that she took her appearance on The View last Friday to use her fashion – however briefly – to make a serious and powerful statement.
Mahsa Amini was an Iranian woman who was arrested in 2022 for not wearing the hijab and died in police custody under highly suspicious circumstances, igniting widespread protests. It’s an interesting statement to make, even if it’s to remind people of the woman’s name and fate by wearing a t-shirt. We wouldn’t go so far as to call it activism, but it’s certainly a worthy gesture. She didn’t wear it on the show, however:
We suppose she could be criticized for that, but she’s there to promote a movie and this interview was set up by publicists and bookers for exactly that purpose. Instead of derailing the entire point of her appearance here, she chose to use the moment of her entering the studio, knowing it would be widely photographed and disseminated, to make her point, however subtle. In style news, the skirt’s nice and the whole look comes together nicely with a jacket.
