The Devil Wears Prada

I may be way behind the times but I finally saw "The Devil Wears Prada," based on the book by Lauren Weisberger. I LOVED IT! Meryl Streep is just wonderful in this movie and really makes you hate her, but strangely you love her at the same time.

I wish I'd read the book now. Well it's not too late. I actually prefer to see a movie first and then to read the book because the book seems so much better. If I read the book and then watch the movie I'm one of those people who doesn't think the movie did the book justice and I can't enjoy the movie completely. This way I'll enjoy the book and I'll picture Anne Hathaway and Meryl Streep as the characters.

I have not seen any of the movies nominated this year, so I can't honestly say she deserved the Golden Globe in her actor category, however she is such a superb actress that she deserves it just for being her. I've loved her in a lot of roles. One of my all time favorite movies with her is "The Hours." I haven't seen that since it came out in 2002. I need to visit it again. That is a haunting movie.

One more thing about "The Devil Wears Prada." The clothes!! Oh my goodness! The clothes were to die for. If I was skinny and I could afford any clothes in the world I would get the wardrobes from: (don't laugh) Legally Blonde, The Devil Wears Prada, and some of the clothes on "Sex and the City."

Bueno, I have to take a shower and speaking of clothes, I need to figure out what I'm wearing to work tomorrow if it's going to be as cold as these past two days have been. I don't own any proper winter clothes since this is Houston, Texas where it never really gets this cold except for every 10 years or so.

The Devil Wears Prada was very funny, and clever, too - and I don't even care too much for "chick flicks."

Meryl Streep is just an amazing class act. She's good in, like, everything she comes out in!

Oh, and since you mentioned wardrobe, Patricia Fields did the costumes for both The Devil Wears Prada AND Sex and the City.

That is too funny! I just read that the same person did both wardrobes, last night when I was writing this blog entry! No wonder I love both!

I've seen in the news that it's still COLD here in Texas!
Brrrr, keep warm!

I haven't seen The Devil Wears Prada...but it's on my list to watch : )

Take Care!

Un fuerte y caluroso abrazo, amiga.
