Devil wears Prada

I finally watched Devil Wears Prada earlier today.

I thought it was... just ok. The movie itself didn't pack a punch. It started out hopeful but ended up flat.

Andrea Sachs (Anne Hathaway) is a college graduate who lands herself a job as a to-die-for assistant to tyrannical fashion editor, Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep). She was thought to be a portrayal of notorious Vogue editor, Anna Wintour.

Anyway, in terms of fashion sense, yes, I thought they were impeccably dressed but it wasn't that exciting. I suppose I was expecting more because they had engaged Sex in the City's Patricia Fields as their costume designer. They're mostly decked in black and white prissy suits. Oh and of course, killer heels. Do fashion people really dress like that all the time?

Here are my favourite looks though.

The clothes in this movie were considered too "over the top" by regular fashion industry standards. Real people in the industry wear clothes that are FAR less flashy than those seen in the Devil Wears Prada. They prefer more minimalistic designs with less colour (black is the preferred colour for most). Fashion insiders complained that the movie was unrealistic as it often depicted the characters wearing clothes that are too outlandish. But with Patricia Field in charge, of course the movie wasn't going to be full of the plain, simple and black outfits favored by real industry folk.

You can't expect the insiders to dress as if they are on a John Galliano catwalk. Just look at the things Anna Wintour and Carine Roitfeld of American Vogue and Paris Vogue wear. It's more simple and chic, rather than flashy. Even the designers themselves often just wear plain jeans and t-shirts like Giorgio Armani and Marc Jacobs. And if you see how Stella McCartney dresses, it's very understated. If someone working for Vogue showed up at the office wearing one of Carrie Bradshaw's Sex And The City outfits, they'd get laughed at.
