Miranda Priestly’s other assistant gets the starring role in Lauren Weisberger’s new book.

Fans of The Devil Wears Prada (which, amazingly, hit bookshelves 14 years ago) will be excited to hear that author Lauren Weisberger is releasing a follow-up next year called When Life Gives You Lululemons.

But Miranda Priestly’s other assistant, Emily Charlton (played brilliantly by Emily Blunt in the movie adaptation) will be the main focus. And this time she isn’t working for fictional fashion mag Runway, she’s forging a career as a high-profile image consultant.

Landing the client of a lifetime comes at a significant cost – a move to the suburbs (specifically, Greenwich, Connecticut) – a nightmare for New Yorker Emily.

The book looks likely to have all the ingredients to make it as glamorous as The Devil Wears Prada, albeit with a more acerbic lead character.

When Life Gives You Lululemons will be released on June 5, 2018, but can be pre-ordered now from Amazon

Can’t wait? A full extract is available to read now on Entertainment Weekly.
