Year Of Release: 2006

Recommendation: A vicious film about fashion and a really vicious boss.
The Devil Wears Prada is a film reportedly based on Vogue magazine editor Anna Wintour. It is taken from the book of the same name penned by her secretary, who surprising she didn’t sue.

Wintour is played by Meryl Streep in this film. Streep delivers a great, spine chilling performance – and it’s not even a horror film. By the way, I hate horror films, but horror this was not.
Merly Streep (Miranda) as Anna Wintour
Anna Wintour has been renamed Miranda in this surprisingly funny movie. They have painted her as a terrible, and I do mean terrible boss, who wears Prada, and likened her to the Devil.
In the film, Miranda is a cruel, overbearing, vindictive ice princess of a boss, that seemingly takes delight in giving her secretary the most harrowing, punishing assignments possible, both company related and personal.
Her secretary, pardon me, assistant, is played by Anne Hathaway. While she did turn in a decent performance, it seemed like she was being herself, and not really acting.
Streep underwent a personality transformation, as did Stanley Tucci, as her vicious, sassy fashion director. They really stood out.
Miranda’s first assistant, played by Brit, Emily Blunt, was very funny and well in character. She did a great job.
The settings were wonderful and the clothes in the film really brought the message home – this is a fashion magazine.
When you hear the title of the film you think this movie must be really evil, but it’s not. It’s a tale of a boss that demanded so much that her secretary began to see her as the devil himself.
However, the only devil in this movie is on the soundtrack – Madonna – with her song “Vogue” that she stole from Malcolm McClaren’s “Deep In Vogue” which was recorded and released the year before her rip off.
I used to watch the show “The Young and the Restless” in the 90’s and I must say, it appears the people of Argentina have elected Jill Abbott as their president. Just kidding, but don’t they look alike – Jess “Jill Abbott” Walton and newly elected Argentinean President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner:
