Anne Hathaway and her husband lent their support to George and Amal Clooney’s foundation honoring defenders of justice
Anne Hathaway is stepping out to support defenders of justice.
The Devil Wears Prada star, 40, appeared at The New York Public Library on Thursday to attend George and Amal Clooney's second annual Albies, which “aim to shine a spotlight on brave individuals who, at great personal risk, have devoted their lives to justice,” per a press release.
The Oscar-winning actress dazzled in a floor-length gown featuring a checkerboard pattern of mint green and silver and a metallic finish. She accessorized the look with metallic jewelry and sandals.
Her husband Adam Shulman, 42, accompanied her.
The event, named after South African justice Albie Sachs, was presented by the Clooney Foundation for Justice, the organization founded in 2016 by George and Amal Clooney. Its goals include “providing free legal support to victims of human rights abuses," the press release continues, "with a focus on protecting women, journalists, defenders of democracy and minorities.”
Last year's Albies were similarly star-studded, with a guest list that included Meryl Streep, Dua Lipa, John Oliver, Julia Roberts, Bruce Springsteen and more. George told PEOPLE at the time that Amal "happens to be really especially gifted at" building a foundation. "We collaborate on everything. We collaborated on twins!"
The second annual Albies presented five awards to activists and organizations from around the world for their work in medicine, law and journalism. Among those honored were Congolese gynecologist and human rights advocate Dr. Denis Mukwege and journalists Niloofar Hamedi and Elahe Mohammadi, who reported on the death of Mahsa Amini in Iran.
Also receiving special recognition were Ukrainian rights group Truth Hounds, free speech advocacy group the Syrian Center for Media and Freedom of Expression, and Thailand’s organization Thai Lawyers for Human Rights.
Hathaway and Shulman, an actor and jewelry designer, have kept their relationship largely out of the spotlight. Earlier this year, they appeared on a red carpet together at the Valentino Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2023 fashion show in Paris.
The two New York City natives tied the knot in Big Sur, California, in September 2012 after confirming their engagement the year prior. "I knew from the second I met him that he was the love of my life," the Oscar-winning Les Misérables actress told Harper's Bazaar UK.

Earlier this month at an event celebrating her Shiseido ambassadorship, Hathaway shared details about her postpartum journey with PEOPLE. "It takes three years for your body to fully recover from a pregnancy,” the Princess Diaries star said. "People don't talk about this and it really made me feel better when I found out about it.”
In 2020, Shulman told PEOPLE he enjoys “every aspect” of fatherhood, adding that Hathaway "amazes" him as a mother. "Every day makes me appreciate her more."
Hathaway will next appear onscreen in She Came to Me costarring Peter Dinklage and Eileen costarring Thomasin McKenzie. Among her upcoming projects as a producer are the films The Idea of You, Live Fast Die Hot and The Lifeboat.
