The Devil Wears Prada
Hollywood should do more adaptations like this... I like a fast-paced movieline that cuts to the chase, is not without emotion, retains all the juicy, hilarious lines and casts fabulous actors such as Meryl Streep. And did you know why this movie is truly great? Coz it was directed by David Frankel of Sex & The City fame. Like I read from somewhere, this is a man who knows his Jimmy Choos from his Manolo Blahniks (Carrie, anyone?) He certainly knows how to balance fashion and emotion... not your ordinary chick flick, satisfyingly!
One role I thought was miscast was the role of Nigel. I had expected someone who gave more attention to the "sad little girl", her mentor, beacon of light in fashion noir. Someone as supportive as err... I dunno... Whoopi Goldberg in Ghost?
My favourite scene in the whole movie was Paris... with the city lights and the restaurant playing "French Kiss" and Andy twirling on a pole in the garden only to be caught by the charming Christian Thompson (Simon Baker) who kisses her again and again and again... so Sex & The City! Love it! I don't blame Andy for falling for Christian... it's that deadly intelligence + looks that's so tempting... And did you know Simon Baker was voted among People Magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People" (2002)?
I especially like this dress! And oh, can I wear leather jackets and carry Marc Jacob satchels and fashionable pumps or calf-level black boots to work starting from tomorrow? But I'm scared my colleagues would call me crazy...
You people who declare yourselves to be fashionistas, always buy CLEO or visit Loreal counters should drop all your stuff, and go to the cinemas, now!
That's all >:)
