It’s been 10 years since Lauren Weisberger’s novel The Devil Wears Prada was released, and almost seven years since the movie adaptation hit cinemas. I’m sure you’ll all agree when I say The Devil Wears Prada is the greatest fashion story ever written/filmed, and now we’re about to get part two, with the upcoming sequel, Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns. The follow-up novel is released in June, and revisits main characters Miranda Priestly and Andrea Sachs.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Andy and former-frenemy, Emily, have launched their own bridal magazine (oddly named The Plunge). Andy is “planning her own wedding to Max, a handsome media scion” but “remains haunted by her impeccably heeled former boss — and the magazine world being as small as it is, it’s only a matter of time before she runs into the legendary editrix once again.”
It’s definitely going to be the hot summer read, and I’m crossing my fingers a big-screen sequel will also follow. Wouldn’t it be amazing to see Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Emily Blunt and Stanley Tucci return to their fashion alter-egos?
And with that in mind I’ve picked out five of my favourite quotes from the movie. They never fail to make me laugh…
Miranda: “Tell Simone I’m not going to approve that girl that she sent me for the Brazilian layout. I asked for clean, athletic, smiling. She sent me dirty, tired and paunchy.”
Emily: “I’m on this new diet. Well, I don’t eat anything and when I feel like I’m about to faint I eat a cube of cheese. I’m just one stomach flu away from my goal weight.”
Miranda: “This layout for the Winter Wonderland spread… Not wonderful yet.”
Nigel: “Corn chowder. That’s an interesting choice. You do know that cellulite is one of the main ingredients in corn chowder.”
Miranda: “I said to myself, go ahead. Take a chance. Hire the smart, fat girl.”
Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns is released on June 4th in the US and June 20th in the UK. You can pre-order a copy at Amazon right now for £5.99. And keep an eye on the blog for more details coming soon…
