Looking Back at "The Devil Wears Prada" 10 Years Later

Posted on Saturday, June 25, 2016 2:19 PM

Movie PosterVariety magazine has an excellent story that looks at The Devil Wears Prada, which opened in theaters ten years ago:

“The Devil Wears Prada” showed Hollywood that it was never wise to underestimate a strong woman’s worth. The movie based on Lauren Weisberger’s best-selling novel was originally meant as light counter-programming when it opened on June 30, 2006, opposite “Superman Returns.” But Miranda managed to clobber the Man of Steel in the zeitgeist wars. “Prada” went on to gross $326 million worldwide for Fox (a staggering amount for a project that only cost $41 million), and it became a modern-day “Working Girl” for a generation of millennial women—and some men—who could relate to the idea of losing your identity to your job. Unlike the ladies on “Sex and the City” who lounged at lunches and cocktails all day long, the film’s scrappy heroine Andy Sachs couldn’t even take her dad to dinner without her phone buzzing non-stop.


“I never had any idea that my lines would get quoted to me every single week of my life since the movie has come out,” says [Emily] Blunt, who played Miranda’s “first” assistant Emily, and hears from fans at airports and bathroom stalls. Anne Hathaway believes the appeal of “Prada” is in the universal nature of its story about a demanding boss. “Everybody has had an experience like this,” Hathaway says.

I saw the movie ten years ago and i love the movie very much. I love the performances from Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway.I also love the fashion that made this movie. But what i love about this movie that the film introduced me Emily blunt. Since this movi, I've been a fan of hers for life. I even wrote her a fan letter and I got back an autograph picture of the actress. someone would ask me, what's the best thing about "The Devil Wears Prada?" and I'll say without doubt is Emily Blunt. I love the actress very much.
