While Anne Hathaway may have lookied like a consummate fashionista in her Erin Fetherston cream dress and maroon coat at the designer’s show on Friday night, she admitted to a few jitters. “There is something that transports me back to seventh grade when I’m at a fashion show,” the actress tells PEOPLE. “You feel like you’re at the weekend party, and you’re like, ‘Am I wearing everything alright? Did I do my hair right?’ And it’s silly because it’s a lot of fun, and there shouldn’t be any pressure, but there is!” Easing the pressure was the designer herself, who Anne calls “a pretty cool chick”. And as for Anne’s worst fashion faux-pas, she points at many a woman’s nemesis — skinny jeans. The actress laughs “Well, I love them on other people, but I don’t think skinny pants loved me. Some girls can wear them with flats. I need to wear them with tranny shoes in order for them to look good.” But that doesn’t stop the Get Smart star, who admits she wears them “whenever I want to look like a tranny!” Well, for now, the actress is distinctly feminine as she makes the rounds of Fashion Week.

I just adore Anne Hathaway! She is the true definition of beauty and class. Check out that dress, it’s fabulous!

wow, her job sounds SO hard. there is SO much pressure to have your hair a certain way, right, anne? psh. get over yourself, if you like a dress thats hideous, wear it with a smile, & get over it.

Can you PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE find some more pics of that haircut? I want it, but the picture is so dark that I’d need a better one to bring to my stylist.

I love Anne Hathaway more than Emily :). She’s a perfect role model for young girls. She is the type of woman young girls should look up to!

glad on

So let me guess, she picks flowers and then wear them.
