This is HOT
There are few characters in books and film as wicked, selfish, and somehow as lovable as Emily Charlton from The Devil Wears Prada. Sure, she was plenty snarky and had a glare that could pierce through your soul, but she was ambitious and wildly entertaining. Perhaps, that’s why author Lauren Weisberger is finally giving Em the book sequel she desperately deserves.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Weisberger’s new novel When Life Gives You Lululemons will be all about Emily’s life far away from Miranda Priestly and the pressure that went along with being an assistant for the most-respected (and feared) fashion editor in the country.
Now, a 36-year-old Emily can be found in Greenwich, Connecticut, where she works as an “image consultant” for the rich and the famous, EW reports. Oh, and she’s also married to a guy named Miles, who according to an excerpt from EW obtained, has a “beautiful body.”
The story, which will follow Emily as she works to save the reputation of a supermodel/senator’s wife who gets a DUI, begins in Los Angeles — or, as the book calls it, God’s “least favorite city on earth” — at Gigi Hadid’s house. It’s New Year’s Eve, and everyone who’s everyone is in attendance.
From the get-go, the story is entertaining. You can practically see Emily sighing in relief when she gets a call to say she’s been hired to handle a pop star who’s arrived at a party in NYC wearing a Nazi outfit and must leave the star-studded soiree. For this workaholic, bad news for someone else is great news for her.
If anyone can scare a pop star with a penchant for Nazi paraphernalia into shape, it’s her.
Will she cross paths with Andy while back in NYC? Who knows, and honestly, who cares. This is Emily’s time to polish off those Louboutin heels and get to work.
