Gird your loins, because Thursday’s Albie Awards includes one major fashionable reunion.
The Clooney Foundation for Justice’s second-annual event featured a venerable who’s who of celebrity faces, including former Devin Wear’s Prada costars Anne Hathaway and Meryl Streep — who reunited 17 years after the beloved film’s release.
Both Hathaway and Streep were all smiles as they posed together at the function, which honors “brave individuals who have devoted their lives to justice.” Hathaway wore a bright green, shimmery, strappy Versace floor-length dress, while Streep looked radiant in a sparking black sweater adorned with gold embellishments.
Photographers captured the heartwarming moment as the two former costars embraced in a hug.
Other Devil Wears Prada Alums
Emily Blunt, who also starred in The Devil Wears Prada, was in attendance at the event alongside her husband, John Krasinski. Blunt looked stunning in a sleek red sleeveless Zuhair Murad dress, while Krasinski kept it classic in a black tuxedo.
In the 2006 film, Hathaway played aspiring young journalist Andy Sachs, who lands a job as an assistant for Runway magazine editor Miranda Priestly (Streep). Blunt played the role of Emily Charlton, Miranda’s first assistant.
The Devil Wears Prada Legacy
The Devil Wears Prada, directed by David Frankel, became a modern classic known for its impossibly chic clothes, scorching dialogue, and portrayal of women in power. The film grossed $326 million worldwide and earned Streep an Oscar nomination.
Since the film’s release, Hathaway and Streep have remained friendly, posing together at various events. In 2021, Frankel revealed that Streep played a crucial role in ensuring Hathaway was cast in the film.
Prior to Hathaway getting the role, other actresses such as Rachel McAdams, Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman, Kate Hudson, and Kirsten Dunst were considered. However, Streep watched Hathaway’s scene in Brokeback Mountain and vouched for her, leading to her eventual casting.
