Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns is the sequel to the fabulous The Devil Wears Prada. The books were written by American novelist Lauren Weisberger. She was actually the real-life assistant of Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, and one can suspect that the books are (not so) loosely based on her experience.
Scenes from the movie The Devil Wears Prada.
Lauren says of her experience as an assistant at Vogue:
Unlike Andy I couldn't force myself to wear high heels. It was expected of me, but I ran all day, all over the office, up and down the building 1000 times and to Starbucks six times a day, so there was no way I could manage even a 2in heel.
I wore these horrible, black platform boots with a thick rubber sole because there was no choice. And even though for a couple of weeks I made the boot-to-high-heels switch under my desk, I just had to forget it in the end. She would stare at them in disgust and it was a stare that conveyed her displeasure pretty clear.This really sounds like Andy's (The Devil Wears Prada) life at Vogue.
Weisberger is also the author of Everyone Worth Knowing (a book based on the New York City public relations world- 2005), Chasing Harry Winston (three NYC best friends that deal with turning the big 3-0, written in 2008) & Last Night at Chateau Marmont (2010).
What do you think? Would you read Revenge Wears Prada? I'm actually quite tempted by the other books as well!
I hope the movie gets a sequel too, wouldn't it be fantastic to see Meryl Streep as the scary yet fabulous Miranda Presley again?
All the best,
