Written by Lauren Weisberger, the novel spurred on the production of the film, which many argue actually tops the printed version.

One thing that makes the movie so iconic is its star-studded cast.

Starring the fabulous trio of Meryl Streep (how could we forget,) Anne Hathaway, and Emily Blunt (who plays Miranda's way-too dedicated assistant,) the cast is unquestionably iconic.

And it's served us some of the most memorable lines in fashion...

There's no doubt that it's one of the most quotable fashion movies. "Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking."

Emily Blunt stole the show...

According to Elle, the official description of the upcoming musical reads: "Andy, an ambitious young writer in New York City, lands a job at a prestigious magazine. Trying to survive under her stylish yet terrifying boss, she finds herself caught between the dreams she thought she wanted, and the cost of what that reality brings. A joyous, funny, and - of course - ultraglamorous story about navigating life's runway to discover where you're meant to be." "The Devil Wears Prada is a new musical that gives the hit film a fabulously fresh makeover. Sometimes the best fashion statements are sung."

The show will kick off its out-of-town engagement by heading to Chicago's James M. Nederlander Theatre on July 14, 2020, followed by a string of shows running until August 16.

The musical will then presumably kick start its Broadway stint in New York City.
