What’s the story: College graduate and aspiring writer Andrea Sachs ventures to New York City to pursue her dream of becoming a journalist. She lands her first job as a second assistant to Miranda Prestly, the powerful editor-in-chief of Runway Magazine, one of the world’s top fashion magazines. Being new to the world of fashion, Andrea is in for a lot more than she bargained for when stepping into this role.
Where: New York City
Why it’s amazing: This movie is amazing because you see Andrea rise up in her position, from fashion-lacking and unsure assistant to a confident, knowledgeable and well-dressed executive. Aside from Andrea’s character changes, Miranda Prestly provides a lot of entertainment, highlighting a lot of the stereotypes of a high-powered fashion editor. Lastly, this film is just fabulously girly and an inspirational flick for anyone who aspires to become an editor or publicist.
What is bad about it: Although the movie hits on typical stereotypes of the fashion and media worlds, it presents those industries in a negative light. Not everyone in these fields are terrible!
Wonderful scene in the movie: When Andrea is made over and goes from a plain Jane girl to a fabulous fashionista. Even her boyfriend is blown away from the change!
Fun Fact: Actresses Juliette Lewis and Claire Danes auditioned for the role of Andy.
