"The Devil..."

"The Devil Wears Prada" is the name of the film I saw this weekend.
The films depicts the world of fashion.
Glamorous, beautiful and fashion addicted are the way the characters are seen by the viewers.
Within this rutheless world of fashion, yes, rutheless as anyone that doesn't fit the looks pattern is immediately discriminated, (" common" women are not right), there is Andy Sachs (Anna Hathaway) that will courageously face the "devil", Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep).
Andy is an intelligent, graduated girl that is looking for an opportunity to get a job. Her chance comes when Miranda accepts her as her assistant, in Runway a fashion magazine, against all odds. She is the opposite of the other women working there.
In a desperate attempt to prove her talent at work, she ends up being transformed in a twentieth-first century Cinderela, wearing Channel, Gucci, Valentino and so on.
Nevertheless, after an initial fascination for the million dollar world of fashion, she ends up recovering her values. She gives up a promising career in fashion to fulfil her dream, that is to become a journalist.
I loved the film. It is easy to follow, with some funny situations although sometimes exaggerated.
