The title of the movie is not only catchy but unintentionally(?) also serve as advertisement for Prada. Watching the movie on the hand, suggest to me that Hermés is the main advertiser. The eminent Hermés scarfs are mentioned a handful of times and orange Hermés box are seen through out the movie. It is kind of in-your-face advertising like Sony engages in with their uber cool products in James Bond movies.
The Devil Wears Prada is one of those movies that every fashion aficionado should watch because it gives an, although twisted insight of the fashion industry and most importantly it features a great bunch of expensive well designed clothes.
The stylist who got the honor to dress the actor is Patricia Field. She is probably unknown to many fashion fanatics but if you have watched “Sex in the city”, then you are familiar with her styling talent.
Her main dressing doll in the movie is Anne Hathaway’s character in the movie who wears outfits which are in a very classic and proper style. In other words her outfits are very non-sexual and a sort of covered up, no cleavage and with skirts reaching below the knees. Although the outfits aren’t very chic a few of them are very stylish and elegant.
With a sequel on the way I hope the stylist in charge of “The Devil Wears Prada 2” gets to play around with a bit more edgy garments so that we get to see some very “off the hook” outfits.
