Hathaway had plenty of headline-grabbing style moments in 2022, but none went viral like the outfit she chose for the Michael Kors show during Paris Fashion Week in September, which looked like much to the one her “Devil Wears Prada” character wears in the closing scene of the 2006 film.

Somehow, the look got even scarier when Klum ditched his slimy costume to reveal a sparkly nude mesh catsuit – but kept his worm face.
