Anne Hathaway took to Instagram today (IST) to mark the 16th anniversary of The Devil Wears Prada. She observed the occasion by dropping her favourite outfit, how the film impacted her and a poignant message on the Roe vs Wade ruling. In the end, she told her followers, "see you in the fight."
The Devil Wears Prada is one of the most iconic fashion movies ever. And as it celebrates its 16th anniversary, the film's leading lady Anne Hathaway dropped a poignant post on Instagram. The film, starring Anne Hathaway, Meryl Streep and Emily Blunt, was released in theatres on June 30, 2006. To celebrate its anniversary, Anne took to Instagram to share her favourite outfit from the film, a message about the Roe vs Wade ruling and told her followers that she would see them "in the fight." Her post comes after the US Supreme Court struck down the 1973 Roe vs Wade ruling that recognised American women's constitutional right to abortion on June 24.
On Friday (IST), Anne posted several snippets from The Devil Wears Prada featuring herself, Meryl Streep, Stanley Tucci, Emily Blunt, and revealed her favourite outfit. While thanking the film's stylist Patricia Field, Anne said that she wore 'the most incredible, iconic and joyful costumes' for the movie, and they still 'keep serving 16 years later.'

In the end, she wrote, 'see you in the fight.'

Meanwhile, the United States of America has split down the middle after the US Supreme Court overturned the Roe vs Wade ruling, which recognised women's constitutional right to abortion. "The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion. The authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives," the court said in a 6-3 ruling - quoted by the news agency AFP. After the verdict, many are holding protests.
