Filming for the movie version of Lauren Weisberger's (ex-wintour assistant) book about the extreme evilness of a "fictional" magazine editor, begins this saturday.
Anne Hathaway plays Andrea Sachs (aka Lauren W.) and Meryl Streep will play Miranda Sachs (aka Anna W.)
The movie will be styled by Pat Field (of Sex & the City fame) and feature designers like chanel, fendi, and--obviously--prada, but some designers won't be helping out, out of respect to anna wintour, however a vogue spokesperson says that:
"Anna Wintour is in full support of anything that supports the fashion industry."
Personally, I think the book was pretty mediocre as chick-lit goes but was redeemed by lots of name-dropping of designers. I guess if the movie name-drops as successfully, it could be pretty entertaining.
