Plot

Andrea Sachs is a young 23-year-old, graduate of Brown University. Her dream is to work as a writer for the New Yorker. After returning from her summer trip to Europe, Andrea begins job hunting. Andrea is sharing a home with her friend Lily, with no surprise, in the state of New York. Andrea submits her resume to different businesses, hoping to hear back from them. One day Andrea receives a call from Ellias Clark who is a major magazine publisher. Elias informs Andrea about an available position and goes on to request an interview with Andrea.

At the interview, Andrea learns that the position she is interviewing for is for the post of assistant to Miranda Priestly. Miranda is the Editor in Chief at Runway Magazine, Andrea however, is not sure this is the right job for her, Miranda’s current assistant Emily informs Andrea that if someone works well for a year under Miranda, She recommends them for any post they desire. This helps to convince Andrea to accept the position.

Andrea receives a call about her acceptance as Miranda’s assistant. She received the call while she was staying at the home of her boyfriend Alex, who is happy for her. Andrea manages to find an apartment of her own in the city before she begins working. Miranda is on vacation in Europe when Andrea begins. However, this doesn’t mean she has been given the chance to slack off. Emily grinds her daily about the expectations of her position and what is required as Miranda’s assistant. The days are long and tiring but Andrea manages to survive and feels ready for Miranda’s return.

Upon Miranda’s return, Andrea quickly comes to realize that working for her will be a tall task. Miranda is impossible to please and also treats Andrea cruelly berated at every mistake she makes. The pressures of working at Miranda’s assistant begin to take a toll on Andrea’s relationships outside of work. In fact, Andrea begins to prioritize work over everything else, including her boyfriend Alex, her friend Lily and even her family. Her friend begins to develop a drinking problem but being only concerned about pleasing her boss, Andrea ignores Lily’s condition.

Andrea begins to drift apart from everyone as her job has become her only true priority. One night during her trip to Paris with Miranda, Andrea checks her phone to discover two missed calls, one from her now ex-boyfriend Alex and another from her mother. They had both called to share the same news of her friend Lily getting into a car accident and is now in a coma. Andrea is scared that Miranda will fire her if she returns to home to see Lily and chooses to stay in Paris. Andrea informs her boss of her friend’s condition but assures Miranda that she is committed to remaining in Paris with her. These events occur after Miranda had teased Andrea, with the possibility of her contacting the New Yorker when they return to America. Miranda upon hearing of Andrea’s commitment informs her that she has made the right decision and of how Andrea reminds her of herself when she was younger.

These words triggered Andrea and she realized that she was gradually becoming the woman she despised so bitterly. During a later tantrum thrown by Miranda, Andrea snaps and quits from the position.

Now left without a job and barely existent relationships, will Andrea begin to put the pieces of her life together or will she perhaps walk a similar path of Lily?

“I’ve always expressed my thoughts in color but we remain blind.”
― Lauren Weisberger, The Devil Wears Prada

“Insatiable, impatient, impossible.”
― Lauren Weisberger, The Devil Wears Prada

“For most people, the ringing of a phone was a welcome sign. Someone was trying to reach them, to say hello, ask about their well-being, or make plans. For me, it triggered fear, intense anxiety and heart-stopping panic.”
― Lauren Weisberger, The Devil Wears Prada

“Mom and Dad were great, but being asked where I was going every time I left the house – or where I’d been every time I returned – got old quickly.”
― Lauren Weisberger, The Devil Wears Prada
