  1. 1. Name: 何建穎 972006018 Department: Optics THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA
  2. 2. <ul><li>The beginning of the story is starting from anxious </li></ul><ul><li>scene that Andrea is busy completing the work which </li></ul><ul><li>Miranda asked. Then the story is traced back to that </li></ul><ul><li>Andrea is still a social fresher. Andrea wanted to be an </li></ul><ul><li>editor and came to New York. Accidentally she had the </li></ul><ul><li>chance to interview with Miranda who is the chief editor of </li></ul><ul><li>Runway. Unexpectedly she had the job to be a Miranda’s </li></ul><ul><li>assistant which million girls would die to do. At fist Miranda </li></ul><ul><li>was not at company. Emily who is a senior assistant taught </li></ul><ul><li>her all things she must be careful. </li></ul>Content
  3. 3. <ul><li>For example, they must answer all phone </li></ul><ul><li>calls, though they hadn’t gone to restroom </li></ul><ul><li>for about five hours. Although Miranda was </li></ul><ul><li>in the Paris, Andrea still had lots of </li></ul><ul><li>troublesome works. In the end, Miranda </li></ul><ul><li>came back. It seemed that there will be </li></ul><ul><li>some disaster. It was not a long </li></ul><ul><li>time that she was familiar to her </li></ul><ul><li>work. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>At first Andrea wore her few clothing everyday. But she </li></ul><ul><li>gradually hated to get early in order to think what kind of </li></ul><ul><li>clothing she might wear. Therefore, she began to wear the </li></ul><ul><li>limitless supply of Runway clothes. Besides, she always </li></ul><ul><li>wasted lots of money which Runway paid. Due to Miranda’s </li></ul><ul><li>inhuman request, this behavior could make her feel comfortable. </li></ul><ul><li>She must complete Miranda’s impossible mission everyday and </li></ul><ul><li>then listen to her blame for not </li></ul><ul><li>completing it in time. She was </li></ul><ul><li>gradually late to the appointment </li></ul><ul><li>with her friends. She was almost </li></ul><ul><li>deprived of her sleeping and </li></ul><ul><li>individual time. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Miranda likes a ghost haunted </li></ul><ul><li>her constantly. Andrea once </li></ul><ul><li>wanted to resign this work. </li></ul><ul><li>But she thought that she only </li></ul><ul><li>did this work for one year she </li></ul><ul><li>could have any editor </li></ul><ul><li>position. So she still worked </li></ul><ul><li>for the devil Miranda. The life </li></ul><ul><li>was not changed. Andrea </li></ul><ul><li>was still busy completing </li></ul><ul><li>Miranda’s barbaric requests </li></ul><ul><li>and listening to her scold day </li></ul><ul><li>after day. Due to her job, she </li></ul><ul><li>had few time get together </li></ul><ul><li>with her boyfriend and friend. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>She almost took all time to deal with Miranda’s trivia. Alex her </li></ul><ul><li>boyfriend thought that Andrea sacrificed too much time for </li></ul><ul><li>Miranda. But Andrea thought it was only a process to get her </li></ul><ul><li>ideal job. Besides, she even didn’t know her friend and </li></ul><ul><li>roommate Lily’s condition. Her personal life was over. </li></ul><ul><li>Because Emily had mono, Andrea must go to Paris with </li></ul><ul><li>Miranda. And then Alex couldn’t pardon Andrea for not </li></ul><ul><li>keeping promise. By this chance, they made a decision to </li></ul><ul><li>break up for some time. It not only </li></ul><ul><li>made them calm but also gave </li></ul><ul><li>each other space. Before going to </li></ul><ul><li>Paris, Andrea was busy preparing </li></ul><ul><li>for clothing and makeup to take </li></ul><ul><li>participate to the banquet. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>But when she arrived at Paris, she almost had no time to take a </li></ul><ul><li>rest. Miranda gave her continuous works and blamed to her </li></ul><ul><li>inefficiency. She felt that she likes a slave. In the same time </li></ul><ul><li>she knew that her good friend had a car crash and she wanted </li></ul><ul><li>to take after her. Finally she couldn’t endure to Miranda’s </li></ul><ul><li>unreasonable asks and said fuck you </li></ul><ul><li>Miranda then left to Paris. Although </li></ul><ul><li>she almost will get her wonderful job, </li></ul><ul><li>she didn’t care to this thing. Surely she </li></ul><ul><li>lost the job and the chance to get her </li></ul><ul><li>wonderful job. But her family and friend </li></ul><ul><li>were happy that she left Miranda the devil. </li></ul><ul><li>Finally she had the chance to get a new </li></ul><ul><li>job.
