In the dizzying world of New York fashion, Runway Magazine is the Holy Grail. Overseen with a finely manicured fist by Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep) – the most powerful woman in fashion – Runway is a fearsome gauntlet for anyone who wants to make it in the industry.
A stint as Miranda’s assistant could blast-open the doors for recent college graduate Andy Sachs (Anne Hathaway). But when Andy comes in for the job, it dawns on her that making it in this industry will take more than drive and determination. And her ultimate test stands before her in head-to-toe Prada. Andy is completely wrong for the job. But she has something the rest of them don’t: she refuses to fail.
To become the perfect assistant, Andy will need to make herself over in Miranda’s image. Soon, much to her boyfriend’s (Adrian Grenier) dismay, she can talk the talk, walk the walk (in flawless Manolo’s) and never again confuse Dolce with Gabbana. But the more of life she sees through Miranda’s eyes, the more she begins to grasp that sometimes great success depends on great sacrifice… but at what cost?
THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA is based on the internationally best-selling novel by Lauren Weisberger, which spent six months on The New York Times bestseller list and was translated into 27 languages.
The film was directed by David Frankel, who explored the vagaries of fashion and celebrity in the landmark series “Sex in the City” and “Entourage”.
