The Devil Wears Prada movie is based off the book The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger. The movie follows Andrea Sachs, otherwise known as Andy, as she works for a fashion magazine editor named Miranda Priestly.
The plot revolves around Andrea “Andy” Sachs, an aspiring young journalist who, despite her contempt for the fashion industry, accepts a job as personal assistant to Miranda Priestly, the editor-in-chief of fashion magazine Runway, in the hopes of kick-starting her career. The character of Miranda is loosely inspired by the real-life editor of Vogue, Anna Wintour, which deterred some high-profile industry figures from appearing in the film.
As a film with numerous female leads, the fandom for The Devil Wears Prada is unsurprisingly dominated by femslash pairings, in particular Andy/Miranda. Although an antagonistic character, Meryl Streep’s critically-acclaimed portrayal of Miranda contribute to making her one of the fandom’s most beloved characters, with her unapologetic attitude and scathing one-liners. The fandom is also filled with picscams, graphics made of a sequence of media screencaps, showcasing the film’s high-fashion costuming and design, which made it the most expensively costumed film of all time.
