We all remember the moment when Andy gets her much needed makeover in The Devil Wears Prada movie. Anne Hathaway’s character Andy starts out as a frumpy journalist wearing three seasons old cerulean blue sweaters and, GASP, clogs. As the movie progresses and she has her light blub moment, or as Oprah would say, her Ah Hah, moment, she makes a visit to the coveted closet of Runway Magazine.
The closet is every girls dream filled with designer clothing, shoes, handbags, jewels and makeup. She is handed countless items without a bat of an eye, thousands of dollars and hopes and dreams of women everywhere just given to her as she is in such desperate need. Hours later she returns to her desk and the First Assistant, Emily, is shocked into silence, as is Gilsele Bunchen’s character, at her appearance. She looks chic, timeless, fantastically fashionable, and best of all, confident. She is wearing the thigh high Chanel boots. From the moment I saw them on the screen, I lusted over them. The way they perfectly fit and made her outfit edgy, but classy all at the same time. I’m sure you all felt the same. The transformation was breath taking and made us all wish we were her. Well, most of us can’t have the boots, but we can watch the movie and lust after all the beautiful ensembles featured in the show. So, break out the pink champagne, invite a few girlfriends over and agree to freeze frame the parts of the movie that feature your fashion favorites, and then watch it all over again.
