Anne Hathaway has brought back her iconic Devil Wears Prada bangs and the internet and fans—us included—can't get enough. 

Andrea Sach’s [Anne Hathaway] wispy bangs belong high up on the best fringe hairstyle list. They, no doubt inspired many of us, time and time again, to get our hair cut and she’s just brought the look back into our lives.

If you’ve not seen The Devil Wears Prada, we’re upset for you, but just so you're up to speed: Andrea gets a job for fashion magazine ‘Runway’ where she goes from no sense of style, to basically a model herself all the while repping a perfect fringe. The literal wispy fringe of our dreams, in fact. 

Taking to Instagram, Anne posted a snap of her new look, while wearing a very Runaway-Esque Valentino dress. In the caption she wrote: “Grazie/Merci/ThankYouForever @maisonvalentino 💕” Let's all also take a minute to thank hairstylist Orlando Pita

Proving that our love for noughties nostalgia is undying, the comments give us life!

Fans flooded the comments with love, one wrote: “This is giving major Andy vibes and I’m so here for it.”

Another wrote: “Miranda would approve.”

And a third movie fan asked: “Are u wearing the Chanel boots?”

We also really related to a fourth fan who said: “Cute, but still waiting for Princess Diaries 3.” Aren’t we all?

It wasn't just Instagram fans that went wild with the throwback look, Twitter users also compared her new look to her 2006 look, and she's truly ageless.

One fan tweeted: "Anne Hathaway understood the assignment."

How this fringe differs from a normal full fringe or side bangs, is that it’s choppy in the middle, and then gets longer at the sides. So you get the best of both worlds, and they perfectly frame your face.  Another bonus is that this fringe looks good down, or with an updo.

If you’re considering a change and wanting to try a fringe, Anne has just supplied you with the ultimate inspo pic to show your stylist.  While there are millions of ‘DIY’ bang haircut videos—we advise you to leave these bangs to the experts.
