– EN Star Style – Anne Hathaway has delighted fans by recreating one of her looks from The Princess Diaries for the Pillow Challenge craze on social media.
The actress took to Instagram on Wednesday to take part in the contest, which sees users turning their bedclothes into red carpet looks while they social distance at home during the coronavirus crisis.
For her version, Anne uploaded a picture of herself wearing headphones, lipstick, and sunglasses, as well as a makeshift dress constructed from a cobalt blue pillow and two white pillows tucked underneath it. Posing in front of a photograph of bright blue butterfly wings, the picture resembled the poster for The Princess Diaries, the 2001 film in which she played Mia Thermopolis, an American teenager who unexpectedly inherits the throne of a European kingdom.
The 37-year-old captioned her post with the quote, “A Queen is never late; everyone else is simply early” – a standout line from the character of Queen Clarisse in the movie, who was portrayed by Julie Andrews.
Hathaway is not the only celebrity in lockdown to create some quarantine couture. Earlier this month, Halle Berry served a strong look by belting a black pillow around her waist, accessorising it with a wide-brimmed hat, oversized sunglasses, and black heels, and posing in a garden of leafy plants.
Meanwhile, Sarah Michelle Gellar posted a snap of herself in heels with an animal print pillow strapped to her waist, and wrote in the caption: “Pillowchallenge inspired by #TigerKing (btw so weird to put heels on – I feel like I need to start putting them on once a week so I don’t forget how to walk in them).”
Love Island’s Amber Davies, Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham, and chef Gordon Ramsay’s daughter Holly Ramsay have also participated in the trend.
