I can hardly believe it, but The Devil Wears Prada was released 13 years ago in 2006. A film that came out when I was still contemplating what I wanted to do with my career, it allowed me to dream of one day working in the fashion world and what that might be like. What did a day as a fashion editor really look like, and what were the people in those roles actually wearing? While The Devil Wears Prada may offer a Hollywood version of what it’s actually like in real life, the outfits Emily Blunt wears don’t seem that far-fetched to me.
In fact, after watching the film countless times, I took away some key fashion lessons from her character that still impact me to this day. Ahead, I’m breaking down each of them and shining a light on exactly why her character’s fashion still resonates today. Go on for the four major fashion lessons I learned from Emily Blunt in The Devil Wears Prada, and shop pieces I imagine she would be wearing today.
