A quartet of great performances elevate this chick-lit adaptation to something special. Streep's 'Miranda' is a divine creation taking inspiration from a handful of fashion gurus and one can see the sheer pleasure Steep had in performing her. Hathaway's turn recreated her as something more than a 'princess' and supporting turns from Blunt and Tucci were aces. Many quotable lines. "....that's all....."
Don't let its rom-com, mainstream credentials fool you. This is no rote tale of a mismatched man and woman with a 'deus-ex-machina' meet-cute. Streep as Miranda Priestley is THE archetype for elitist CEO tycoons, and Blunt and Hathaway are pinpoint representations of yuppies fighting for their place in the industry hierarchy. This is sharp contextual characterisation that transcends its generic popularity.
Two stars for Meryl Streep but that's about it... I'm quite offended by the horrendous styling and lack of fashion sense displayed by the stylists for this film... I mean if you are to make a Hollywood film, can't you at least get that portion right?
