Comments: The Devil Wears Prada

Do your eyes enjoy the dazzling fashion-life? Does your mind need to be convinced of
the superficiallity of fashioned-driven beauty? Does your sinister belief on the impossible combination of physical appearance and inner-beauty need to be refreshed or fed? Then you want to watch The Devil Wears Prada.

It is fun, it is not that shallow, it is entertaining, and it is full of haut couture that makes even a fashion-blind person like me wish to have a 'better' wardrobe.

The story is simple. It is about Andy, an intelligent, beautiful, and yet fashion-ignorant person, who got a job as personal assistant to the chief editor of the most important fashion magazine. It's like watching Alice in Wonderland, but this time the wonderland is filled with creatures drapped in Gucci, Armani, Prada, Channel.

Andy's adventure presents the 'dark-side' of the glamour fashion life. The dark side that is superbly portrayed by Meryl Streep. The cynical and sarcastic comments on fashion from the other side of the table are so witty, you cannot stop but chuckle. Twisted lessons on fashion and identity inject fresh and smart humour to the simple story. The triumph of good conscience over well-dressed essentialism was like a pat on my back saying, "It is alright to dress like s**t, as long as you got your two feet on the ground."

All in all, it was an excellent saturday night movie. It's not the movie of the year, but it made my night and it should make yours.

Pipit, the devil who wears Promod ;)

  • Got a friend who worked as an intern in one of haut couture in London for a month and she said the people in "The Devil Wears Prada" is nicer than the one in the reality...ck ck ck, what a tough life.

  • Joo..Thanks for the correction. Didn't even spot it before.

    You're absolutely right! It is why I can only use Promod. ;)
