Miuccia Prada gives her verdict on The Devil Wears Prada


It comes as no surprise that Miuccia Prada had her reservations when The Devil Wears Prada was released in cinemas in 2006. Based on Lauren Weisberger's hit novel, the satirical film played off some of the worst stereotypes of the fashion industry. However, the designer has taken it all in her stride and given the movie her seal of approval.

"I was terrified: the book was awful," she told Italian publication Corriere della Sera. "The film, on the other hand, was fun."

The Devil Wears Prada, which starred Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway and Emily Blunt, follows the story of Andy, a keen journalist who lands a job as the assistant of legendary editor Miranda Priestley, and is quickly thrown into a world where she works 24/7 and has a list of absurd tasks to complete for her ever-demanding boss.

The film proved a worldwide success, grossing in over £80million at the box office. Emily Blunt, who stars as Anne Hathaway's fellow employee, caused a stir amongst fans last year when she revealed that she would love to be in a sequel.

"I would do it, but only if everyone did it," she told E!. "I don't know why it hasn't been done, but everyone's got to do it."

Lauren has already written a sequel, Revenge Wears Prada, however there has been no confirmation that a second film is in the works.

The original novel written by Lauren sparked widespread speculation that her protagonists were based loosely on her own life and career as the assistant to iconic editor Anna Wintour. However, Anna herself showed off her sense of humour when she attended the premiere of the film, wearing an outfit from Prada.
