Anne Hathaway has insisted she didn't mean to wear a The Devil Wears Prada-style outfit to a recent fashion show.

Last month, the actress stepped out at the Michael Kors event staged as part of New York Fashion Week in a brown sweater and brown crocodile-look leather jacket.

Fans were quick to point out that the ensemble resembled the one Anne wore to play the character of Andrea 'Andy' Sachs in the 2006 movie, but she maintained that it was all coincidental during an appearance on the Today show on Wednesday

"It was kind of nuts, wasn't it? It was by accident I was supposed to wear something else. The shoes didn't fit, this was the other outfit that came," she said.

However, Anne had an inkling that dedicated fans of The Devil Wears Prada would notice the similarities while she was getting her hair styled prior to the spectacle.

"And then my hairstylist, who was so lovely - I had never worked with him before - just said, 'Oh I know what to do,' and he threw my hair up in a ponytail," the 39-year-old recalled. "And I looked in the mirror and I thought, 'Oh that's funny, I wonder if anybody will notice.'"

She added: "You noticed."

In a further twist, Anne was seated next to Anna Wintour at the fashion show.

The U.S. Vogue editor-in-chief served as inspiration for Meryl Streep's character Miranda Priestly in the film, which was based on a roman à clef novel by her one-time assistant Lauren Weisberger - the inspiration for Andy.
