Author Lauren Weisberger’s “The Devil Wears Prada” is a cult classic for the fashionable set. So, when news hit that the highly anticipated sequel “Revenge Wears Prada: The Devil Returns” was headed to stores in June 2013, clackers everywhere rejoiced (. . . self-included). A bit of background on the new book: It’s 10 years later and Andy has teamed up with Emily to start a bridal magazine that becomes an instant hit. She’s living life to the fullest, has become super successful and found the love of her life, until one day it all comes to a screeching halt.
I’ve yet to start reading the book (… it’s top priority on my to-do list this week), but am already hoping there’s a movie version in the works. Meryl Streep in all of her Miranda Priestly fabulousness and Anne Hathaway with her sassy new ‘do as an older, wiser Andy Sachs would be divine!
Weisberger has been heavily promoting the book — doing interviews and making TV appearances — which is what brought her to Washington’s W Hotel last week. The author hosted a book-signing event at the hotel’s swanky POV rooftop lounge and it brought out some of D.C.’s most stylish folks. There were girls (and guys) dressed to impress in summer’s haute-est trends — from printed maxi dresses to tailored shorts to candy-colored heels.
This event was all about the details: Guests looking for make-up tips were able to stop by the NARS booth for quick summer beauty consultations (think: lips and cheeks). The day of the event, it was pretty hot and humid, so for those looking to revive their droopy ‘dos, IPSA hairstylists were on hand to give voluminous blow-outs and sleek flat iron styles. One of my favorite parts of the event was the OnomonoMEDIA photo booth where guests could snap pics of themselves.
Georgetown Cupcake provided miniature treats that were decorated with red and white covers of the book and there were signature St. Germain cocktails. And no downtown after-work event is complete without some hip tunes, so DJ Neekola kept the party going.
Here are a few event pics that I snapped:
