Continuing the makeover excellence from last week’s Pretty Woman is one of my all time favourite guilty pleasures…with one of the best high fashion montages ever AND Meryl Streep (she who can do no wrong), The Devil Wears Prada is makeover gold. A must-watch on your next girls night in. Enjoy X Catalina.

The Devil Wears Prada (2006), Dir. David Frankel.

Most of you will know this one (the movie or the book. Or both.). Anne Hathaway plays Andy, a frizzy haired young writer who applies for an assistant position at a fashion magazine as a step into serious journalism. This sees her come face to face with film icon Meryl Streep’s formidable Miranda Priestley, feared Editor in Chief, and gives us lesson number one: don’t wear a cerulean jumper to a new job. Also, care about your footwear, but really, just no cerulean. So… a makeover film set in the offices of a glamorous fashion magazine. Who’d have thunk it? It makes all the amazingly expensive outfits to follow a little more believable on an assistant’s wage. And what outfits they are! The fashion montages in this film are drool worthy. We watch naïve Andy find her (very fashionably shod) feet in her new job, thanks in part to softie fashion stylist Nigel (played by the awesome Stanley Tucci), the ability to run in high heels, and some ruthless use of her mobile phone. Success! Or is it? Has she been blinded by the coruscation of couture? Andy has an existential crisis, but, luckily for us, not before she’s provided us with all the fashion eye candy us lowly mere mortals could wish for.
