The Devil Wears Prada

The Devil Wears Prada is a 2003 novel by Lauren Weisberger about a young woman who, fresh from college, gets a job working as a personal assistant to a powerful fashion magazine editor that turns increasingly hellish as she struggles to keep up with her boss's capricious and demeaning requests.

A prime example of "chick lit," the novel was widely seen as a roman à clef about Vogue magazine and its iconic editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, since Weisberger worked there as an intern. Although she denies the story's editor is modeled on Wintour, many readers believed otherwise, which helped propel the book to the bestseller list.

A film based on the novel, starring Meryl Streep, Adrian Grenier and Anne Hathaway, was released in summer 2006.
