Meryl Streep’s role in The Devil Wears Prada became iconic for the entire fashion world. Eleven years after, Vogue decided to make a photoset for both women, the actress and her prototype. Meryl Streep, Anna Wintour pictured face-to-face for the cover of the most fashionable women magazine.
The 68-year-old actress Meryl Streep has landed on the cover of Vogue, and Anna Wintour was extremely happy to see and to interview the Hollywood actress whose character in the 2006 film The Devil Wears Prada (Miranda Priestly) was not flattering.
The Oscar winner was chosen for the December cover, the cinema icon is also seen chatting with Wintour in her office, which is a very unusual image and one fans thought they would never be seen. The powerful editor-in-chief even interviews the actress in a clever Vogue video.
Meryl Streep talks with Anna Wintour in her Vogue office
Streep looks nervous as she arrives at Anna’s high-rise Vogue office. They kiss. Anna says thanks for coming in and Meryl jokes that she hopes ‘to get the job,’ a play on Anne’s character in The Devil Wears Prada.
Streep is asked what the most ‘challenging’ role she has played. Meryl looks as if she is about to say Miranda in The Devil Wears Prada, but Anna says, ‘We’re not going there Meryl.’ The two laugh.
Wintour then says that Katharine Graham was a friend but ‘intimidated’ the fashion legend. Meryl is shocked: ‘She intimidated youuu?’ she asks. The ladies then discuss how hard it is to get at the ‘truth’ these days and how the drama The Post is an important reminder.
