Anne Hathaway broke out a pair of shoes that are already trending for fall to run errands in New York.
The “Princess Diaries” alumna made her way back to her Manhattan apartment Thursday night, grabbing her keys in a black long-sleeve V-neck blouse tucked into equally relaxed black shorts.
When it came down to shoes, the “Les Miserables” actress opted for one of the season’s biggest growing trends. Her pointed-toe ballet flats come from none other than Valentino and feature the brand’s signature Rockstud accents atop a sleek nude patent upper. Similar colorways can be found for $690 at Ssense with other pairs retailing for $745 at Neiman Marcus.
While they were once viewed as conventional and safe, in recent months, ballet flats have experienced a revitalization within the fashion world amidst increased desires for comfort and stability with returns to more relaxed fashion choices. Instead of pumps or towering heels, stars and street style icons alike continue to debut their takes on classic flats inspired by must-have designs from brands like The Row, Bottega Veneta, Khaite, Neous and more cult-favorite brands.
As for Anne Hathaway herself, Valentino is just one of many brands preferred by the star when it comes to footwear; her other go-to brands include Christian Louboutin, Alexandre Birman and Casadei. On the red carpet, the star can be found in labels like Brandon Maxwell, Versace and Gabriela Hearst for her fancier duds.
Beyond her own personal closet, the “Modern Love” actress previously starred in campaigns for Keer jewelry, Bolon eyewear, Tods apparel, Lancôme beauty and more notable brands. She serves as the United Nations Goodwill Ambassador as well.
