Movie Star Workouts
ROLE Emma in Bride Wars
WORKOUT PLAN Anne Hathaway and her New York City trainer David Kirsch started to tone her up for the role three months before she starting filming. With an already long and lean physique, Anne's goals were to tone and shape her arms, thighs and abs. "She was comfortable with the way she looked, but she knew she would be sharing the screen with Kate Hudson and wanted to dial it up," says Kirsch. She spent an hour to an hour and a half a day doing weight training (no machines) mixed with rowing hard on the rowing machine and running on the elliptical. The weight training was with heavier weight than she'd used before and included new balance exercises like one-legged dead lifts that challenged her strength and flexibility in both her leg and core muscles. "Anne loved the intensity we put into her workouts for this filmshe's very competitive," Kirsch says. "Overall her confidence has improved. Her body is leaner, sexier and more toned."
At the Van Cleef & Arpels flagship store in New York City, Blake Lively celebrated the redesign in a black bias Marchesa slip dress with pastel floral embroidery, Chantilly lace cut-outs and a tulle flounce skirt. Van Cleef & Arpels jewels and black Gucci heels completed her look.
