The Devil engineers a transformation

While watching The Devil Wears Prada on DVD recently, I couldn't help but marvel at how well the entire movie had been cast. And its not just good casting, but also casting that takes some chances (Blunt, Tucci) that pays off.

In a series of good choices, Anne Hathaway is a particularly nifty one to play the central protagonist Andrea Sachs. As a smart, aspiring journalist, she morphs from being endearingly frumpy to whip smart fashionista. Hathaway has alabaster skin, doe eyes, a figure that is a perfect movie clothes hanger. And she pulls off the physical challenges in her role in spades.

Behold the transformation of Ms. Sachs.

Anne's look in 'Devil...' is to diiiie for....(giggles,waves and pretends to faint)

Bottom line- second and last but one are my most fav in the movie.
