What’s all this about a ‘Devil Wears Prada’ sequel?

What’s all this about a ‘Devil Wears Prada’ sequel?

Blame Anne Hathaway turning 40 in “incidentally fabulous” style, but the public demand for a Devil Wears Prada sequel has never been higher. Back in 2021, the stars of the 2006 blockbuster reunited on Zoom in honour of the film’s 15th anniversary to raise money for charity, leading to much speculation about where, exactly, the Runway staffers would have found themselves in the years since Andy tossed her Sidekick into a Paris fountain and sold her Chanel pirate boots on eBay. Is Andy working for The Guardian yet? Did Nigel ever get out from under Miranda’s thumb? Has Emily discovered the body positivity movement?

Cut to January, and Hathaway—pre-bombshell reinvention—shared an Instagram post in a decidedly Ms Sachs-esque outfit (after her Nigel-chaperoned trip to the fashion cupboard, that is): a floral Valentino minidress with prim collar, Wolford tights and a pair of chunky Morgana platform boots courtesy of Giuseppe Zanotti. Then, during New York Fashion Week this September, a PR genius sat Hathaway next to Anna Wintour on the front row at Michael Kors’s spring/summer 2023 show in a chocolate croc-embossed Kors coat that you could easily see Andy exiting a Subway station in circa 2006, Madonna’s “Jump” playing in the background.

For her part, Hathaway dismissed the possibility of a sequel while appearing on The View earlier this month. “I just think that movie was in a different era—now everything’s gone so digital, and that movie is centred around the concept of producing a physical thing, and it’s just—it’s very different.” Even she admitted to being intrigued by what a reunion of Lauren Weisberger’s characters might look like though. “It’s tempting to think about Andy and Emily needing to get Miranda her coffee, and she’s somewhere in Europe, and then along the way they pick up Stanley Tucci in Italy, who’s at a restaurant. It’s tempting, but I don’t think it’s going to happen.”

Emily Blunt, however, is more optimistic. During her own turn on The View while promoting her newly released Spaghetti Western-inspired series, The English, the actor admitted she’d be delighted to revisit her role as the most savage PA in fashion. “I mean, the green eyeshadow was so horrifying, it has to get another outing, and the fashion—we loved it—I would do it in a heartbeat just to play with those guys again. It’s so fun.” (Famously, four years after The Devil Wears Prada hit cinemas, Blunt introduced her sister Felicity to Tucci at her 2010 wedding to John Krasinski, with the pair marrying a few years later.) As for Streep? So far, she’s kept mum on the subject—and, as history has proven, it’s Miranda who gets the final say on all things Runway-related.
