Have You Seen It Yet?

PeaceBang is just DYING to see "The Devil Wears Prada," and devoured this article with a great deal of anticipatory joy: http://www.slate.com/id/2144787


If you want to see how fashionistas really dress, you'd do better to stick with the casual expensive boho looks in Lucky magazine than with the over-the-top ensembles put together by the smashing Patricia Fields (she who worked such glorious, unrealistic magic with the three gals from "Sex And the City") or those featured in upscale glossies like Vogue or W.

me too, PB. I drove by our local theater the other day and saw a group of "dressed to kill" ladies going into the theater... I had no doubt which movie they would be seeing.

The film is great. My fiancee and I saw it over the weekend.

I used to ignore fashion... and I think the fashion industry is a bit insane... but I'm rapidly falling for the nearly cultish mens fashion styles coming out of Scotland.

It's about time actual Tailors got to WORK again. I have custom shirts on order from a local.

I saw it and must say, fashion wise, BRILLIANT! The message that you can be good, but not too good, at your job as to show someone else up, a bit of a problem for me. Do you think a college chaplain could get away with wearing thigh-high boots? :-)

TDWP is *fabulous*, and as a young adult and campus minister here in north-central california, i must say it's the perfect morality play for today's generation. take your youth and young adult groups to see it pronto, and have a great discussion after! this is no "chick flick" as no doubt a reluctant frat brotha dragged tooth-and-nail by his girlfriend might fear! beneath a veneer of sweet romance and fashion fantasia, this film is about the Tough Questions of discovering Who You Are by first being pushed around by the system--which so many of us young adults often feel these days. but i'm a sucker for anything in mass media that promotes heathly values.

meanwhile, i'd love some fashion advice about what to wear as a recently-ordained 20-something campus minister in nor cal. i'm gay too, so the options are fully open. :) i think i'm expected to by my colleague to appear professional (ie, "dress casual") because i'm officially a Rev., but i also feel there's more potential power in either extreme of The Necktie or abercrombie. the former affords me more respect with the board and donors, the latter gains me more accessibility to students. peacebang, do you have ideas?
