Meryl Streep playing the icy, rich, all to powerful bitch Miranda Priestly should be darn good fun! I loved the book and look forward to seeing the film. As for Anna Wintour...she is rich, powerful, and has come to enjoy a certain sort of life most of us mere mortals only dream of. If Vogue is any indication, Wintour seems to think the world begins and ends with rich socialites and ridiculously expensive merchandise. And I've heard many a time that if one wants to be rich they have to sometimes be a bitch and I think anyone in power be it male or female are ultimately going to piss off the people beneath them. So Anna Wintour may not be so much an icy bitch as she is a driven and ambitious woman.

Is the book good? I've heard a lot of fantastic things about it, and I want to read it. From what I've heard, it will make a fun movie, and Meryl will be amazing, I'm sure.

I think it will be an excellent movie... the book isn't exactly the greatest thing in the world, but it's a fun read- when I read it when it first came out I though it would be ana amazing movie! Are they making a confessions of a shopaholic movie? that would be hilarious!

I haven't read the book, but from the descriptions of the character this should be a fun watch

Thank God, someone else who thinks Sophie Kinsella's books should be made into movies. I think all three Shopaholics books should be done up.....it'll be like a high fashion Bridgit Jones!

I'm not so sure about Meryl Streep. I don't think I could ever see Anna Wintour (or a character based on her) looking like that. Other than that, though, I think she's perfect. I hope they have lots of cameos - the book talks about all the other employees looking like supermodels so it would be fun if all the minor characters were played by supermodels. Excitement excitement.
