‘The Witches’ promo tour was to see Anne Hathaway return to the red carpet for the first time since welcoming her second child in late 2019.
Well. Judging by the pictures taken by Greg Williams on the roof of Harrods in London yesterday (October 22), it was worth the wait.
Am I slightly emotional that we couldn’t have had this moment at London’s Leicester Square, or TCL Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles?
Yes, but the new normal for the red carpet has gone virtual, and with that a chance to be more creative, and with this image, Anne has raised the bar.
She captioned this Instagram post, “🔮No premiere, no problem🔮
I hope you all enjoy Robert Zemeckis’s reimagining of #TheWitchesMovie, streaming on @HBOMax today!”
This, for me, is the new gold standard. A Vogue style photoshoot with a breath-taking gown, set against a breath-taking backdrop.
The colour red signifies strength, power, determination, and in this ruffled Ralph & Russo Fall 2019 Couture gown she embodies all of those things, with determination to let us know she’s back.
With A Bang.
Huge thanks to Anne for this moment. During so much uncertainty and depressing news, after depressing news, we really, really needed this.
