As we’ve mentioned before, we’ve been slow to jump on board the Anne Hathaway band wagon, although certain recent beauty moves have definitely helped steer us closer to a total embrace of the actress. First came her well-executed lob, followed by this masterfully back-combed, extension-abetted updo that added a touch of classy, perfectly color-matched height to the slim- fit black pantsuit she wore to last night’s Bride Wars premiere in New York. You’ve almost got us, Anne. Almost
As the days get shorter and sun exposure becomes scarce, those of us holding our breath for a beachside holiday are reaching for bronzers until travel plans actually materialize. For our fair-skinned sisters, however, a midwinter ruddy cheek can look just plain wrong. But thanks to primers, women with porcelain complexions can still achieve an outer glow. To get the look heralded by alabaster beauties like Anne Hathaway, Selma Blair, Amy Adams, and Jennifer Connolly, makeup artist Rachel Goodwin suggests seeking out a hydrating, illuminating product like Le Blanc de Chanel Sheer Illuminating Base rather than a flat matte base, which will give makeup a soft, diffused look and add radiance. “This product can also be used alone, without any foundation,” Goodwin adds, explaining that when applied to cheekbones, the nose bridge, and forehead, primers can enhance and highlight the complexion, creating a subtle warmth.
The observant and trend-conscious among you have probably noticed a gradual end to the angular bob that trickled down to mainstream favor after Katie Holmes and Victoria Beckham popularized the exercise in severity last year. While those two style makers have opted for shorter, feminized boys’ cuts, the rest of Hollywood seems to be going longer, sporting soft, layered bobs that hit just above the collarbone. Behold, the lob (the long bob), which Frédéric Fekkai stylist Adir Abergel is calling the seventies comeback cut of the season. A good option for emphasizing your neck and shoulders, the style (currently enjoyed by Anne Hathaway, Gwyneth Paltrow and Eva Longoria) relies on a certain choppiness at the ends—so that it appears texturized, rather than blunt—and volume, lots of volume (the idea is soft and full, not sleek and Scientologist). To get added body, Abergel advocates for a good volumizer like Fekkai Coiff Bouffant spray gel. Use all over your roots, dry hair upside down to create desired fullness and then finish with Coiff Oceanique Tousled Wave Spray for definition.

Truth time: We are not huge Anne Hathaway fans. Yes, yes. We’re fully aware that she’s having a “moment” right now, but still—we’ve never been riveted by her acting or all that convinced that she possesses the kind of mesmerizing appearance required of a scene-stealing leading lady. All that said, her look at last night’s London Film Festival premiere of Rachel Getting Married might be enough to get us on board the Hathaway bandwagon. Behold the natural pink lip, soft apricot cheek, brown liner, and loose waves that are making believers of us yet.
