The cover for the much-anticipated sequel to The Devil Wears Prada has been pictured for the first time.
Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns, which will go on sale next month, bears a bright red cover with a bold typeface and a sinister-looking devil’s tail snaking down the front.
The release comes ten years after author Lauren Weisberger introduced readers to the merciless world of fashion.Seeing red: Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns, which goes on sale next month, bears a bright red cover with a sinister-looking devil’s tail
The original Devil Wears Prada novel inspired a hit 2006 film of the same name, with Anne Hathaway playing the young fashion journalist Andrea Sachs and Meryl Streep starring as hard-edged editor Miranda Priestly, a character inspired by Vogue’s Anna Wintour.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Revenge Wears Prada picks up eight years after Andy parted ways with Miranda, and Runway magazine, on bad terms.
Andy is editing The Plunge, ‘the hottest bridal magazine around’, with the help of Emily, her nemesis at Runway who turned into a surprising ally.The Devil returns: The original novel, and film, followed Andrea Sachs, played by Anne Hathaway, and her editor Miranda Priestly, played by by Meryl Streep
Andy is planning her own wedding to Max, a good-looking media scion, however she remains haunted by her former boss.
The magazine industry is extremely tight-knit, and ‘it is only a matter of time before she hears the dreaded syllables “Ahn-dre-ah!” again’.
The first book, released in 2003, was loosely based on the author’s experiences as Anna Wintour’s second assistant.Revenge Wears Prada: The first book, released in 2003, was based on Lauren Weisberger’s experiences as Anna Wintour’s second assistant

Both the novel and the movie inspired a wide fascination with the editor, causing many to speculate about Vogue’s work-environment, as well as the treatment of magazine staffers in general.
A Huffington Post blogger wrote a confirmation of the book’s portrayal of Vogue, shortly after quitting her own internship at the magazine.
Emily Louise wrote: ‘Speaking to others who have undertaken fashion and beauty internships, it is clear to see that the process is a matter of survival rather than enjoyment.’
There has been no mention of a reunion with the original movie cast for what will surely be a highly anticipated silver-screen adaption of the new sequel.
