“High fashion, low cunning – and the boss from hell”
When Andrea first set foot in the plush Manhattan offices of Runway she knows nothing. She’s never heard of the world most fashionable magazine, or its feared and fawned-over editor. Miranda Priestly. Soon she knows way too much. She knows it’s a sacking offense to wear less than a tree-inch heel at work-but there’s always a fresh pair of Monolos in the accessories cupboard.
She knows that eight stone is fat. that you can charge anything – cars, manicures, clothes- to the Runway account, but must never leave your desk, or get Miranda’s coffee get cold. That a 3 am, when your boyfriend’s dumping you because you’re always working and your best friend’s just been arrested, if Miranda phones with her latest unreasonable demand, you jump. Most of all, Andrea knows that Miranda is a monster boss who makes Cruella de Vil like a fluffy bunny. But this is her big break, and it’s all going to be worth it in the end. Isn’t it?
“Betty gets paid to party………”
And she can hardly believe her luck. Running with celebs, gaining VIP access to Manhattan’s hottest club meeting ‘everyone worth knowing’ is a million miles away from her old banking job. When she turns up in the gossip columns with notorious British playboy, it delights her publicity-mad new boss. But her family and her friends want to know what happen to the girl who love bad novels, 80’s music and always had time for them.
can Betty says goodbye to the glamour and Gucci and step back into the real world? And where will she find her own prince charming.
