Sandra Bullock joins Anne Hathaway to promote Ocean‘s Eight in NYC

Sandra Bullock stuns in silk printed dress as she joins a vibrant Anne Hathaway to promote Ocean‘s Eight in NYC

They take the lead in the new all-female reboot of classic heist film, Ocean‘s Eleven.

And Sandra Bullock and Anne Hathaway commanded attention off-camera on Tuesday night, as they promoted Ocean‘s Eight in New York.

Sandra, 53, stunned onlookers in a printed silk dress as she joined her equally chic co-star for a busy day of press events in the city.   

The Miss Congeniality star was effortlessly stylish in her burnt orange midi dress, patterned with asymmetric red and black panels all over.

The frock plunged into a subtle V neckline, to tease at her cleavage, before cinching in at her waist and falling into a stunning waterfall skirt to the floor. 

Keeping all eyes on her show-stopping look, Sandra accessorised with simple black heeled sandals and dark round sunglasses, as she waved for cameras outside her hotel.  

Anne soon followed suit in an equally vibrant ensemble – formed of a 1970s-inspired top and glittering turquoise skirt.

The actress nailed the clashing trend in the striped high neck top, which she tucked into her vibrant floral teal skirt, embellished entirely with sequins. 

Maintaining the retro vibe from head to toe, the 35-year-old then layered a turquoise leather waistcoat on top and accessorised with matching court shoes and handbag.  

Styling her hair into loose, tousled waves and adding dark, oversized shades, Anne exuded natural glamour as she followed Sandra inside. 

The pair are in New York promoting their new film – which is an all-female spin-off of Ocean‘s Eleven, which starred George Clooney and Brad Pitt back in 2001.

Sandra takes the lead as Debbie – the sister of Clooney‘s character Danny Ocean – who assembles a team of jewel thieves to pull off a daring heist at the annual Met Gala in New York.

The flick features a star-studded cast, with Cate Blanchett, Mindy Kaling, Rihanna and Helena Bonham Carter appearing alongside Sandra and Anne. 

Speaking at a press conference for the film last week, Anne gushed of working with an all-woman cast – which created a ‘safe‘ working environment for everyone to do their best work. 

She said: ‘I‘ve been really lucky, I‘ve been able to work with a lot of great women but there‘s usually just one or two of us. 

‘The idea that we could all bring all of the experiences we‘ve ever had and bring it into this shared pool – and all then collectively become better because we‘re all just together.

‘One of the first things I remember was feeling safe and feeling like I was with people that I was so proud to be amongst – while having the best time of my life, just learning, and enjoying the view. It was incredible.‘ 

Although the Devil Wears Prada star doesn‘t want young girls to watch the film and be inspired to become criminals, she added that she hopes the themes of female empowerment will resonate and inspire.

She continued: ‘To an eight-year-old girl maybe we‘re not saying go have a life a crime, but to go do what you want and there‘s space for you. 

‘There‘s space for you to go do it with your friends, there‘s room for all of you. I think that films that have an ‘everybody in‘ mentality and message for people who have historically been excluded is a good message for people.‘
