The Devil Wears Prada oral history: Cast reunites to dish on making the best-dressed hit

If looks could kill, then for 15 years The Devil Wears Prada has been a serial threat. Director David Frankel's adaptation of Lauren Weisberger's Faustian yarn - inspired by the author's time working under Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour - emerged as a modern classic through its mélange of impossibly chic clothes, scorching dialogue, and pointed portrayal of women in power. In time, the movie has become a beacon for gender parity, too, with its ice-queen Runway editor Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep) occupying a delectably unapologetic position of power in a male-dominated world and, as a Hollywood antihero, a rare kind of leading lady. The film struck a chord with its feminist-tinged, broadly appealing story, and has endured largely thanks to the spectacular chemistry among Streep, Anne Hathaway (who plays Miranda's assistant-turned protegée Andy Sachs), and scene-stealers Emily Blunt, Stanley Tucci, and Adrian Grenier.

6 local Filipino spots to try in Tampa Bay

Filpino food is one of my favorite cuisines. The blend of Asian and Spanish flavors is a big draw for me and also the wide-range of different flavors from savory to sweet. The cuisine has long been predicted by food experts to be “on the rise”, but it hasn’t quite taken off the way it was predicted to.

Stolen Ambulance Driven into Bay After 137-Mile Chase Through New York State

A woman who stole an ambulance and led police on a 137-mile chase across New York state had to be rescued from Irondequoit Bay after driving the vehicle into the water, WHEC reported. Police said that the woman stole the ambulance from a depot in Utica, New York, at Sunday morning.

After leaving the Thruway, the woman drove the ambulance through the gate at the Newport Yacht Club and into the bay shortly after noon. A witness said she climbed out of the ambulance, shouting “I’m drowning,” before nearby boaters plucked her out of the water. She was arrested by Monroe County Sheriff's deputies.

Lucasfilm Reportedly Plans To Explore More Darths In Live-Action

With the exceptions of Vader, Maul, Sidious and the Tragedy of Plagueis the Wise, the Darths haven’t really played a huge role in the live-action Star Wars canon, which is admittedly a surprise when they respectively form three of the franchise’s most notable villains and one of its longest running memes.
