The Day After "The Devil Wears Prada"

The movie was wonderful, with a dependable cast of capable actresses and a strong storyline. The show stealer was definitely and undeniably Meryl Streep, whose portrayal of the acid-tongued, ice-hearted Runway Editor Miranda Priestly was so real you'd think she actually exists.

Or so the author (Lauren Weisberger) says.

I heard from the grapevine that Miranda's modelled after the notorious former Vogue Editor-In-Chief, Anna Wintour. Both real-life and reel-life personas are of uncanny similarity and appearance, so I guess it isn't really coincidence, eh?

Here's a short synopsis of the movie:

The movie centres around the novel's protagonist, Andy "Andrea" Sachs (Anne Hathaway), a fresh graduate who in a twist of fate, ends up as Miranda Priestly's second assistant. From that point, we see the growth of a girl who begins with absolutely no knowledge about fashion whatsoever, to a sizzling fashonista (well, almost) who finally learns about the cruelty of the real world and what she wants in life.

The supporting cast did a great job in making this movie a success as well. Look out for Emily Blunt as Emily (yes her character has the same name as herself), the jumpy first-assistant and mentor to the clueless Andy, and Simon Baker as Christian Thompson, the manipulative charmer who falls for Andy as she progresses into the world of fashion.

It's a movie that brand freaks cannot miss (yes I'm talking to you Emmanuel). All the big brands like Prada, Valentino, Jimmy Choo, Calvin Klein etc etc sonsored their products for this show, so you know you're gonna see some really nice clothes.

- End of synopsis -

Did close to 9 hours of revision today (I'm quite proud of myself heh heh...) and had a nice, de-stressing swim in the evening. I love my pool! :D

It's exactly a week away from the prelims. Sigh...
56 Days to the first A Level Paper!

Time to die people, time to die...
