If you’ve ever seen or heard of “The Devil Wears Prada,” you know it’s one of the best books/movies about the fashion industry and the editorial world. The movie, while having some flaws (like Andy’s annoying boyfriend who is so unsupportive and selfish I can’t even begin), is a classic for women who are ambitious and career-driven. Plus, who doesn’t love the sassy and chic Emily Charlton?
Sure, Andy may have screwed her out of a trip to Paris, but her one-liners and quick wit were always on point. If you’re a huge fan of her, you’ll be excited to hear that TDWP author Lauren Weisberger is releasing a sequel to the original novel, but this time, Emily is the star of the show.
The book, When Life Gives You Lululemons, which will be released in June, 2018, focuses on Emily. Instead of working for Vogue in NYC, she now lives in Los Angeles and is an image consultant. But, apparently, she’s not doing super well in L.A. and hates her job. The book starts off as she receives a call from an old friend in NYC. Apparently, she ends up in the suburbs of Connecticut instead. Juicy.
According to the synopsis:
New York Times bestselling author Lauren Weisberger returns with a novel starring one of her favorite characters from The Devil Wears Prada—Emily Charlton, first assistant to Miranda Priestly, now a highly successful image consultant who’s just landed the client of a lifetime.
Welcome to Greenwich, CT, where the lawns and the women are perfectly manicured, the Tito’s and sodas are extra strong, and everyone has something to say about the infamous new neighbor.
Let’s be clear: Emily Charlton, Miranda Priestly’s ex-assistant, does not do the suburbs. She’s working in Hollywood as an image consultant to the stars, but recently, Emily’s lost a few clients. She’s hopeless with social media. The new guard is nipping at her heels. She needs a big opportunity, and she needs it now.
Karolina Hartwell is as A-list as they come. She’s the former face of L’Oreal. A mega-supermodel recognized the world over. And now, the gorgeous wife of the newly elected senator from New York, Graham, who also has his eye on the presidency. It’s all very Kennedy-esque, right down to the public philandering and Karolina’s arrest for a DUI—with a Suburban full of other people’s children.
Miriam is the link between them. Until recently she was a partner at one of Manhattan’s most prestigious law firms. But when Miriam moves to Greenwich and takes time off to spend with her children, she never could have predicted that being stay-at-home mom in an uber-wealthy town could have more pitfalls than a stressful legal career.
Emily, Karolina, and Miriam make an unlikely trio, but they desperately need each other. Together, they’ll navigate the social landmines of life in America’s favorite suburb on steroids, revealing the truths—and the lies—that simmer just below the glittering surface. With her signature biting style, Lauren Weisberger offers a dazzling look into another sexy, over-the-top world, where nothing is as it appears.
Now, this is something I have to read – it sounds amazing already, just from the preview. And, how can I not want to read about Emily being stuck in a snobby suburb of CT? Knowing her, the jokes will just come rolling in.
Obviously, fans are so excited for this to drop because, of course, it means there could be a movie that comes up to follow up with the original masterpiece. But, don’t be coming at me with a new movie that doesn’t include Emily Blunt, that I will not be down for.
