With The Devil Wears Prada turning 10 years old in June, we celebrate it’s anniversary with 10 important… and maybe some not as important (but funny!) life lessons:
1 Move faster than a glacier
If you’re going to work for a Miranda Priestly type, you better be able to learn on the job, and fast. And don’t take too long to get Starbucks. Hot Starbucks.
#2 Always walk into a room like you own the place
Unleash your inner Miranda Priestly and let your confidence soar.
#3 How to Spell ‘Gabbana’
Keep your pocket fashion guide close by. You may also want to pop Christian Lacroix into your book as well. Pronunciation: Christian luh–kwa. I really need to brush up on my French. Imagine if the movie was called The Devil Wears Lacroix. Nightmare.
#4 Don’t Pick Fashion Over Your Friends
And don’t sacrifice your relationship for something you don’t 100% love.
#5 You live and learn
We’ve all been Andy. Under prepared, wearing the wrong outfit, unsure what to do, flustered. But only time can give you the experience you need to flourish, you’ll learn from your mistakes.
#6 You can make friends in the unlikeliest of places
Co-worker that you think hates you? Think again. If we learned anything from this movie it’s that a tough exterior is just that. Everyone has a warm gooey centre.
#7 Sometimes you have to be bossy to be a boss
Yes, it’s scary coming up against Miranda Priestly, but she’s good at what she does and she knows how to do it. I mean, I’m not saying we should act like this – but sometimes you have to be firm to be fair.
#8 Public transportation is the worst.
OK, so we already knew this, but watching the film just cemented that fact. Subways and buses in the summer makes me seriously think if they’re trying to cook us. Why can’t they just get aircon? Get with the 21st century people….
#9 Dress to impress
Because first impressions are everything!
#10 Don’t forget chewing gum
Let’s hope we never get into this situation. Always bring gum!
