The Devil Wears Prada is a 2006 comedy-drama film, a loose screen adaptation of Weinberger’s 2003novel of the same name. It stars Anne Hathaway as Andrea Sachs, a college graduate who goes to New York City and gets a job as a co-assistant to powerful fashion magazine editor Miranda Priestly, played by Meryl Strep. Emily Blunt and Stanley Tucci co-star, as co-assistant Emily Charlton, and Art Director Nigel, respectively.
1. The devil wears Prada means that the devil can come in any form and not just the ugly scary version we all expect. He can come as a well dressed good looking person and fool anybody into doing whatever he wants.
2. Prada is an upscale clothing designer. Apparently, she is a difficult person. Therefore, Ann Winter (The Devil) wears Prada clothing.
3. The Devil Wears Prada is two films in one: a caustic, energetic satire of the fashion world and a cautionary melodrama.
4. An ironic measure of the film’s research into the fashion-magazine scene is the fact that there’s almost no journalism in it.
5. Fashion is designed to have you buy something that has the predetermined shelf life of cottage cheese.
6. That a designer will put a fashion combination on a cover of a magazine that you would never dream of coupling together.
7. That people can pay all too much money for a handbag – after all it is just something to put “stuff” into. Well, just think of a purse is another opportunity to be mismatched with your shoes.
8. Real women will die wearing high heals that are high enough to give you a nose bleed.
9. Even designers have off days, and seasons for that matter. Learn how to just walk away from anything you can’t describe what color it is.
10. I believe that one of Hathaway’s dresses could best be described as the color of thawing frozen spinach.
