Most dog walkers tend to opt for practical wellies and overcoats to protect them from the elements.
But Anne Hathway would have no doubt left her fellow pooch owners feeling more than a little under-dressed as she stepped out on a stroll in Brooklyn, New York, on Thursday.
Channelling a French-inspired look, the Oscar-winning actress looked effortlessly chic as she pounded the pavements with her beloved canine companion, Esmeralda, in tow.
Proving less can certainly be more when it comes to fashion, the Les Miserables starlet completed her stylish ensemble with a pair of on-trend indigo flared jeans, white pumps and oversized tan-coloured shades.
With her adorable chocolate Labrador leading the way, Anne positively glided through the streets of the Big Apple with a breezy confidence as she went about her day.
The brunette beauty is still wearing her hair in the short style she has been fashioning since having it cut off for her Oscar-winning portrayal of tragic prostitute Fantine in Les Miserables.
And the actress showed off her naturally flawless porcelain skin by appearing to go make-up free for her day out in the city.
Anne, her husband Adam Shulman and their pet pooch Esmeralda divide their time between her native New York City and Los Angeles.
The actress has enjoyed a fantastic year after cleaning up during awards season, culminating in an Oscar for her role as Fantine in Les Miserables. After taking a break following a hectic few months, she has recently been linked with the lead role in the remake of musical My Fair Lady.
Although the talented star is yet to confirm her part in Cameron Mackintosh’s adaption of the classic film, she has hinted that she might be attached to the project.
