A ‘Prada’ runway

Celebs make deal with 'Devil'

For the Gotham preem of Fox 2000’s “The Devil Wears Prada,” Meryl Streep pulled a move worthy of her character: She made a brief appearance on the red carpet at Loews Lincoln Center Monday, but was whisked away before the party began.

Of course, Streep had a much better reason for rushing out than her character, Miranda Priestly, would have. Streep’s onscreen alter ego simply would have thought it beneath her to put up with all the ceremony; Streep had to fly to a shoot in Utah.

Author Lauren Weisberger is said to have based Priestly on legendary Vogue editor Anna Wintour, but Streep said she found male editors a more useful inspiration.

At the 230 Fifth after-party, a chatty Anne Hathaway cited the influences she used to play ingenue Andy Sachs: her assistant on the set. Both the assistant and Sachs, conveniently, are recent Northwestern grads.

But Hathaway says researching the role of the cutthroat women’s magazine world hasn’t changed her appetite for the mags themselves.

“I know Carrie Bradshaw didn’t eat for a while so she could afford Vogue. Now that seems a little silly,” she laughed. “But I still love to read Vogue.”
