Great posters from upcoming movies

J. Edgar, by Clint Easwood
Release date: October 11

There’s only one thing that I love as much as I love fashion, and it’s the movies. I love watching good films,  reading news about the film directors, the actors, the crew… 
We have some exciting new films coming soon, such as The Ides of March with George Clooney and Ryan Gosling (not released in Spain yet), J. Edgar with Leonardo di Caprio by Clint Eastwood, (one of the best actors nowadays, he truly deserves an Oscar), the Iron Lady with Meryl Streep (another Oscar for her, surely), or Drive also with Ryan Gosling and Carey Mulligan.

They have designed great posters for these films, they are works of art! It’s great when they are allowed to be creative.

It’s always fun talking about “Devil wears Prada”

I found this article because Miss at la Playa was linked on it (the Runway covers I made) and I found it funny and interesting. I already knew many of the things told on it, but it was fun remembering all the hype that surrounded the book and the film. It may be just another film, but there hasn’t been a better film about fashion since Devil wears Prada (Sex and the City and Confessions of a shopaholic were so bad)

FAQs of Devil wears Prada

In what ways is the book’s Miranda Priestly similar to Vogue’s Anna Wintour?
Even though The Devil Wears Prada author Lauren Weisberger has never publicly admitted to basing her character Miranda Priestly on her former Vogue boss, there are a handful of unquestionable similarities. The Anna Wintour Devil Wears Prada true story reveals the following parallels:
-Both Miranda from the book and the real life Anna Wintour are British.
-Both serve as the editor-in-chief of a major fashion magazine.
-Both worked at their magazine’s overseas counterpart before being transferred to New York (Miranda at French Runway and Wintour at British Vogue).
-Both have a fashion quirk (Wintour wears large, dark sunglasses while in the book Miranda sports a white Hermès scarf).
-Both enjoy playing tennis.
-Both have two children.
-Both serve on the board of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
-Both have marital problems that end in divorce.
-Both are known for their cold, cutthroat personalities.
-Both have nearly identical offices (which prompted Wintour to redecorate hers)


Anna Wintour’s real offices and Miranda Priestly’s

Did Wintour really attend the movie’s premiere?
Yes. Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour wore a Prada dress to a special advance screening of The Devil Wears Prada in New York. Meryl Streep described her as being “very, very cordial” when the two were introduced at the movie’s premiere. “We chatted, briefly,” said Streep. “She was very gracious. I think the book was probably more upsetting to her than the film.”

What did Anna Wintour think of the movie?
The day after she attended the premiere of The Devil Wears Prada, Anna Wintour’s spokesman issued a statement about the film, “She thought it was very entertaining. It was satire. What’s not to like?” (guardian.co.uk) In a Barbara Walters Anna Wintour interview, the Vogue editor-in-chief conveyed her reaction to the movie by saying, “I thought the film was really entertaining. Anything that makes fashion entertaining and glamorous and interesting is wonderful for our industry. So, I was 100 percent behind it” (ABC News).

How did author Lauren Weisberger land a job at Vogue?
Lauren landed her job as Anna Wintour’s assistant by utilizing her own creativity. She mocked up her résumé to look like a magazine. She then submitted it to Condé Nast Publications and within days she was hired as Ms. Wintour’s assistant. –The New York Times

Is it true that top fashion designers were afraid to appear in the movie?
The true story behind The Devil Wears Prada reveals that only one designer, Valentino Garavani, actually appeared as himself in the movie (ReelzChannel). It has been reported that Vogue’s Anna Wintour warned major fashion designers to not accept their invitations to make cameo appearances. Yet, no hard evidence of such warnings can be verified. However, the absence of these individuals in the movie may be sufficient evidence in itself.
