We all know, love and adore the book “The Devil Wear’s Prada” written by Lauren Weisberger which was made even more famous in 2006 by Director David Frankel. Every fashion obsessed girl and guy flocks to their TV screen when the film is on for a weekend special or marathon! When needing a couture puck me up The Devil herself Miranda Priestly played superbly by Meryl Streep, is there in cinematic form to aid any bright eyed fashion babe’s hope that; Yes, I can make it in this industry without “being one stomach flu away from my goal weight” and if they too agree that “Everyone want’s to be us!!”
I read the book in high school after receiving it as a gift when I applied to the Fashion Institute of Technology in 2005. Receiving my acceptance letter to the university shortly before the movie was released in 2006, gave the next several years of my higher education in NYC more purpose. And yes, although the film may dramatize many of the goings on at a fashion magazine, especially one in particular…it still allowed for all of us to dream of the “what ifs” in life and learn about who we are through the eyes of Andrea Sachs, played delightfully by Anne Hathaway.
On the release of the sequel to The Devil Wear’s Prada, Revenge of Prada – The Devil Returns by Lauren Weisberger, makes its debut TODAY, June 5th and is creating great buzz!
Almost a decade has passed since Andy Sachs quit the job “a million girls would die for” working for Miranda Priestly at Runway magazine—a dream that turned out to be a nightmare. Andy and Emily, her former nemesis and co-assistant, have since joined forces to start a highend bridal magazine. The Plunge has quickly become required reading for the young and stylish. Now they get to call all the shots: Andy writes and travels to her heart’s content; Emily plans parties and secures advertising like a seasoned pro. Even better, Andy has met the love of her life. Max Harrison, scion of a storied media family, is confident, successful, and drop-dead gorgeous. Their wedding will be splashed across all the society pages as their friends and family gather to toast the glowing couple. Andy Sachs is on top of the world. But karma’s a bitch. The morning of her wedding, Andy can’t shake the past. And when she discovers a secret letter with crushing implications, her wedding-day jitters turn to cold dread. Andy realizes that nothing—not her husband, nor her beloved career—is as it seems. She never suspected that her efforts to build a bright new life would lead her back to the darkness she barely escaped ten years ago—and directly into the path of the devil herself. – Amazon.com
