The next book from The Devil Wears Prada author Lauren Weisberger switches the focus from Andrea Sachs (Anne Hathaway in the film) to Emily Charlton, Andy’s cheeky, high-strung fellow ex-assistant to Miranda Priestly (played onscreen by Emily Blunt). When Life Gives You Lululemons follows Charlton, now a high-profile celebrity “image consultant” who lands a major opportunity in—wait for it—the suburbs.
In Lululemons, Emily trades in the city for Greenwich, Connecticut, where she takes on A-list client Karolina Hartwell, a supermodel and senator’s wife trying to repair her image after a DUI. They’re linked together by Miriam, formerly a partner at a prestigious law firm who’s now struggling to transition into her new life as a stay-at-home mom.
The novel won’t be released until June 2018 (15 years after Devil Wears Prada first hit shelves), but Entertainment Weekly unveiled the first chapter of the book today. It opens with Emily at a raucous New Year’s Eve party in Los Angeles, “one of the most annoying nights of the year in arguably the most annoying city known to man,” the excerpt reads.
