In “The Devil Wears Prada,” Anne Hathaway plays Andy, a college graduate who finds a job working under the prestigious Miranda Presley, played by Meryl Streep. Andy is rudely awakened when she must perform seemingly impossible tasks that Miranda tells her to do. Not only is she constantly working, just like Cinderella, but Miranda is nasty with her arrogant and discouraging responses, just like the evil stepmother. Another similarity between “The Devil Wears Prada” and Cinderella is the physical transformation and godmother aspect. About 45 minutes into the film Andy realizes that if she really wants to commit to the job she must conform to the fashion world and pay more attention to what she looks like. The godmother character, Nigel, played by Stanley Tucci helps her do this by picking clothes out for her, as well as giving her advice along the way. Are there any other parallels in this movie to Cinderella? Are there ways in which it is opposite to Cinderella as well?
