tumblr_ng5abjdcoG1tr5s6io1_1280What:  The Devil Wears Prada 

When:  2006

Who:  Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Emily Blunt, Stanley Tucci, and Adrian Grenier

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.
