It’s common knowledge that the famous and frightening iconic girl boss Miranda Priestly from The Devil Wears Prada was based on real-life editor-in-chief of Vogue, Anna Wintour. So imagine everyone’s excitement when we saw these two meet face-to-face, especially when the production made explicit allusions to the 2006 movie. We are simply living for this moment.
Miranda, I mean Meryl, who is Vogue’s December cover star, came in to talk to Anna about Meryl’s role in the upcoming movie The Post. Meryl is set to play Katharine Graham, Anna’s late friend whom, we might add, she says was one of the most intimidating people Anna’s ever met. (I know, right? That's coming from someone who’s hella intimidating herself. LOL.)
As intriguing as it is to find out what other musings ~the~ editor-in-chief of Vogue and the magazine’s December cover star had to talk about, this conversation wasn’t filled with the latest fashion trends and winter collections. The two’s exchange took on a more serious note—discussing sexism, sexual harassment scandals that are slowly overturning Hollywood, feminist agendas, and female empowerment.
One thing’s for sure: these two showed that there’s more to these women than their bad-ass girl boss roles!
