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.
1. Confidence is key.
The thing that always strikes me about this outfit is the confidence she exudes wearing it. Is it a look dripping with trends? Yes. And does she pull it off? Absolutely. She does because she feels so confident in her own skin and the fashion choices she's making. A great lesson for us all.
2. Suiting is the trend that will always be in style.
Suiting is one of the top trends of the season. The Devil Wears Prada was filmed over a decade ago in 2006, but you would never know it looking at this outfit. Suiting with great tailoring is always a win.
