Anne Hathaway Showed The Hilarious Expectation Vs. Reality Of Her Fashion Week Outfit

Anne Hathaway has come a long way since wearing large clown ties and boot-cut jeans to red carpets in the early 2000s.

She's been somewhat of a fashion icon lately.

Anne went to Milan for Fashion Week and wore this red outfit:

Looks nice, right?

Well, she posted a picture with Donatella Versace on Instagram, and she also shared the reality of what it was like wearing that dress.

She couldn't sit — like, it was painful:

She writhed around on the couch:

"I'm fine! I'm fine!" she said while most definitely not feeling fine.

She could barely sit up!

Ultimately, she said she did it for Donatella, and I guess I would too.

I bet she misses those clown ties and boot-cut jeans, though.
