The Devil Wears Prada – Just One of Those Movies

If you were born in the 90’s or early 2000’s, you would know that fashion was at its peak. Prada, Gucci, and Fendi made couture pieces that only very few could own – yet afford. For many, owning a designer purse or wearing specially crafted couture clothing was considered a social status, but to others it wasn’t just about the labels. It was about the craftsmanship and art behind making such intricate pieces of clothing and accessories. Movies allow you to imagine a life one cannot live and  “The Devil Wears Prada” is just one of those movies that still remains entertaining even after re-watching it multiple times (In my case like 10 times, i know i’m obsessed).

But who wouldn’t be obsessed? Especially if you’re a sucker for rom-coms and dramas, this movie provides the perfect balance of both. Every quarter of the movie had something interesting to offer and unveiled different stories along the way which kept me entertained. Anne Hathaway who plays Andy Sachs did an amazing job with her golden retriever like personality in the movie; always compliant. Meryl Streep played Miranda who is cold and has a better-than-you vibe. The director, David Frankel captured the glamour and fun New York along with the not so pretty parts of it. The Devil Wears Prada had a lot of layers to it as the movie covered Andy’s personal life, her career, Miranda’s career and her personal life as well as their navigation through life and the corporate world.

The Devil Wears Prada predominates the coolest vibe and you’re transported into a world of glamour, fashion and dreamy editorial publications one would die to work at. It gives you a sense of escapism through hectic times like this and there’s nothing more you would want from a movie.
