Not too long ago, Anne Hathaway and Marion Cotillard were the up-and-coming ingenues. But now it’s clear they have risen to the ranks of Hollywood’s aristocracy. In fewer than five years following the release of The Devil Wears Prada and La Vie en Rose, the actresses stepped out on the red carpet this week at premieres of The Dark Knight Rises looking every bit the apotheosis of celebrity royalty, with their striking brunette hair, dramatic brows, flawless complexions and perfectly red lips. Meanwhile, all eyes were also on a new group of young ladies who could be poised to follow in Hathaway’s and Cotillard’s footsteps, especially when it comes to turning it up a notch in front of the cameras. Hailee Steinfeld, Dakota Blue Richards and Crystal Reed were the picture of youthful beauty, with sweeter hairstyles, barer makeup palettes and a slightly shy awkwardness that had a charm all on its own.
