The Devil Wears Prada is movie story about the professional adventure of Andrea, whose
greatest dream is to become a journalist. Andrea gets a job in the fashion industry through
Runway magazine, the most famous of its type, to make ends meet. Unfortunately Andrea
won’t develop her writing skills in the magazine, but her talents as the editor in chief’s assistant,
Miranda. The problem is that Miranda is a merciless, posh and cruel woman, making the
experience a living hell for the girl. The environment in the place will be cold and extremely
critical with the physical appearance. The girl will have to change her simple and plain style,
for a more trendy and elegant one, in order to gain the acceptance of her ruthless boss and
colleagues, specially Emily, her unpleasant workmate. Despite everything against Andrea in
the office, she will consider the experience as a challenge, drastically changing her clothes
and self-image, with the help of Nigel, the magazine’s art director. Nevertheless, the job
becomes extremely demanding, because of Miranda’s tough work rhythm and nearly
impossible tasks, leaving Andrea without a private life with her boyfriend, family and friends.
Stakeholders And Explain Their Stakes
The stakeholder is an individual or entity in the organization that helps objective, vision and
mission successfully achieved. From this movie, we can identify the stakeholder either internal
or external according to how much they have been impacted from tragedy. In my opinion, Andy
quickly realizes her new job isn’t anything to take lightly. Her status at the company hangs by
a thread. Due to the support structure at Runway, Andy isn’t Miranda’s only assistant. She
fundamentally does all the “dirty” work for Miranda’s first assistant, Emily. While Emily is as
strained as Andrea, her concentration is on the attending the glamorous Fashion Week in Paris
at the end of the year. In many celebrity positions, and some executive and personal positions,
there will be a hierarchy of multiple assistants, such as depicted in the film.
Villian From A Consequentialist Point Of View & Ethical Dilemma
The main Villain in this movie is Miranda Priestly. The ethical dilemma started she may hold a
great deal of power and influence however she is ruthless, cold and demands perfection. She
is seen to act rudely and self-obsessed towards her colleagues, engages in rivalries with other
female associates and betrays her closest friends in order to advance her career.
Identify & Ethical Dilemma of The Heroine
The heroin in this movie is Andy. The ethical dilemma is when she faces throughout her time
at Runway is adjusting to a fast paced and unpredictable environment. From changing
schedules to last-minute wardrobe modifications, assistants are the final line of defense for
any executive.
