MERYL Streep rules in a story revolving around the cut-throat world of New York fashion as editor of Runway magazine.

In the role of Miranda Priestly she is the most powerful of powerful women - and nothing stands in her way.

Her assistants have come and gone, but one is determined to become her equal.

It's an interesting contest between Streep and Anne Hathaway, as the up-and-coming assistant who wants to succeed where others have merely crumbled under the demanding editor.

The Devil Wears Prada is based on the novel of Laren Beth Weisberger, who worked as an assistant at Vogue magazine for editor-in-chief Anna Wintour.
