Anne Hathaway's Kennedy Center Honors Weekend

Posted Sunday December 4, 2011 2:00 PM GMT

Gearing up for what's set to be a grand night in the nation's capital, Anne Hathaway glammed up the U.S. State Department in Washington, D.C. on Saturday evening (December 3).

The Oscar-winning actress was clad in a floor-length black strapless Giambattista Valli gown from the resort 2012 collection while joined by fiance Adam Shulman at a reception dinner for the Kennedy Center Honorees.

Spotted early the next morning (December 4) at the Kennedy Center for rehearsals, Anne is lined up to present Meryl Streep as one of the five illustrious recipients of the prestigious accolade bestowed by the event's host, President Barack Obama.

Meanwhile, Miss Streep recently commented on Hathaway's engagement to Shulman while at "A Magical Evening to benefit the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation," saying, "Oh, isn't that great! I wish she were here tonight because I know she would support the Reeve foundation. This is a really, really wonderful organization helping people with spinal-cord injuries."
