The clothes worn by Hathaway were just as expensive. “There’s a closet in the major magazines where they keep the clothes. So what is in the biggest fashion magazine would be all the high level brands, that’s what’s in there, so that’s how she dressed, because she dressed from the closet. Her clothes came from the closet,” Fields said.

Hathaway didn’t mind. “I had two favorite pieces in ‘The Devil Wears Prada,’” the actress said. “One was the Chanel boots that go up to my imaginary places, and the other one was the Galliano gown that I got to wear to the event, which was just divine. There’s no other word. From the second I saw it, I knew I wanted it. I started salivating and had to convince [director] David Frankel it was really the best choice.”

Emily Blunt seemed to care less than Hathaway about the clothing of her character, however. “I looked deranged in it at the end of the day, but I think that I had to embrace it,” she said. “And Pat Fields, she is just a genius, and that word is used very casually with a lot of people, but she really is one of the most creative, artistic people I’ve met. She’d fling together out of various objects and clothing items this crazy concoction and I’d kind of go, ‘I don’t know,’ and she’d say, ‘Oh, wear it, it’s fierce.’ And I’d have to kind of go along with what she said. I knew it was important, and I’d have to embrace it. The hair and the makeup, everything had to look extreme.”

Blunt is glad for the experience though. “Pat’s great, because she sort of installed a sense of being more brave when it comes to dressing yourself. I think I’ve become more fashion conscious since this film.”

And here at Dish, that’s how we believe you should be: confident, smart, and conscious of your choices.

Streep agrees, “I’m sort of a notorious pain in the butt for any costume designer, because I have so many opinions about how my people should present. I feel very strongly that we make decisions about what we’re giving to the world, [and] what we’re withholding from the world by virtue of what we put on our bodies. We choose to say and not say, so for me, clothes are a kind of character. They’re more interesting in those terms than—I don’t follow fashion really or understand the trends, but I understand a lot more about marketing than I ever did after doing this movie.”

So, you can stray from the trends or stick to them, but whatever you do, don’t forget who you are. If this happens, Streep has some advice. “Sometimes you just have to walk out in defiance of it, and just be yourself.” / Issue 57 - September 2018
