Anne Hathaway has added a pandemic-related spin to one of The Devil Wears Prada's best-loved scenes.
The actress, 37, starred in the hit 2006 film as the assistant to a powerful fashion magazine editor, played by Meryl Streep.
In a post to her 17.8 million Instagram followers, she referenced a scene in which her character arrives in the office wearing designer boots, wowing her unfriendly co-workers and prompting one to ask: “Are you wearing the Chanel boots?"
The Oscar winner shared a photo of herself wearing a face mask with the caption:
“Are you wearing the C-"
A second message said:
“The CDC recommended face covering because we're still in the middle of a global Covid-19 pandemic? Yeah, I am."
Fans replied, describing the post as “iconic" and commenting “exactly queen."
The fan who had originally created the meme was equally shocked that Hathaway herself had shared his creation.
