Alexandra Ponomarenko "The Devil Wears Prada" by Mind Map: Alexandra Ponomarenko  "The Devil Wears Prada"

1. The Devil Wears Prada is a 2006 comedy-drama film based on Lauren Weisberger's 2003 novel of the same name.

2. PLOT

2.1. Andrea "Andy" Sachs (Anne Hathaway) is an aspiring journalist fresh out of Northwestern University.

2.2. Despite her ridicule for the shallowness of the fashion industry, she lands a job "a million girls would kill for," junior personal assistant to Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep), the icy editor-in-chief of Runway fashion magazine.

2.3. Andy plans to put up with Miranda's bizarre and humiliating treatment for one year in hopes of getting a job as a reporter or writer somewhere else.

3. The film brilliantly skewers a particular kind of young woman who lives, breathes, thinks fashion above all else ... those young women who are prepared to die rather than go without the latest Muse bag from Yves Saint Laurent that costs three times their monthly salary. It's also accurate in its understanding of the relationship between the editor-in-chief and the assistant.
