Devil Wears Prada: The Musical


Want some breathtaking news? One of the best fashion movies, “The Devil Wears Prada”(2006) is being developed into the song-and-dance version for the Broadway. Just imagine: Miranda Priestley singing her famous “cerulean takedown” about the influence of haute couture to the mass market fashion, Andy Sachs dancing around Manhattan to get “10 or 15 Calvin Klein skirts” and a new Harry Potter novel, Emily NOT eating anything to fit into couture dresses… it’s going to be amazing!

The hopes are quiet high that the cast of the “Devil Wears Prada”  Broadway musical will come from the original movie: Ann Hathaway definitely would like to try her skills at the Broadway scene and Meryl Streep has been hinting on returning to the stage. Though even without the movie cast, it is highly unlikely that there will be any problems with finding actors. After all, “everybody wants this. Everybody wants to be us.”

So, remembering this cult movie, I’ve collected some of its best quotes for you:


1. Nigel: “Yes, because that’s really what this whole multibillion-dollar industry is all about, isn’t it? Inner beauty.”



2. Andy Sachs: “Can you please spell ’Gabbana’?”



3. Emily: “You sold your soul to the devil when you put on your first pair of Jimmy Choos. I saw it.”



4. Miranda: “Florals? For spring? Ground-breaking.”



5. Emily: “I refuse to be sick—I’m wearing Valentino for crying out loud.”



6. Miranda: “Don’t be ridiculous. Everybody wants this. Everybody wants to be us.”



7. Nigel: “Let me know when your whole life goes up in smoke. Means it’s time for a promotion.”



8. Emily: “I’m just one stomach flu away from my goal weight.”



9. Miranda: ‘This… stuff’? Oh. Okay. I see. You think this has nothing to do with you. You go to your closet and you select… I don’t know… that lumpy blue sweater, for instance because you’re trying to tell the world that you take yourself too seriously to care about what you put on your back. But what you don’t know is that that sweater is not just blue, it’s not turquoise. It’s not lapis. It’s actually cerulean. And you’re also blithely unaware of the fact that in 2002, Oscar de la Renta did a collection of cerulean gowns. And then I think it was Yves Saint Laurent… wasn’t it who showed cerulean military jackets? I think we need a jacket here. And then cerulean quickly showed up in the collections of eight different designers. And then it, uh, filtered down through the department stores and then trickled on down into some tragic Casual Corner where you, no doubt, fished it out of some clearance bin. However, that blue represents millions of dollars and countless jobs and it’s sort of comical how you think that you’ve made a choice that exempts you from the fashion industry when, in fact, you’re wearing the sweater that was selected for you by the people in this room from a pile of stuff.



10. Miranda: “That’s all”
