In January, The Hollywood Reporter learned that Hathaway had parted ways with Rachel Zoe — although the official word is that they’re still friends. It’s almost like Hathaway had to have a fashion refresher this year. She suddenly started working with stylist Penny Lovell, who has established herself as having fresh, original taste working with Rose Byrne, Bella Thorne and until a while ago, Ginnifer Goodwin.
Their first style pairing was Hathaway’s casual and cool Sundance wardrobe. Lately, she’s been dressing down in a more chic and boyish style, complementing her waifish hair and body. At the Oscars, Hathaway’s red-carpet debut (styled by Lovell) saw the actress in a Gucci black silk crepe column with a crystal-embroidered halter bodice.
