The Devil Wears Prada Film Trail in Paris

When you decide to follow one of the Paris film trails, you will get to see the City of Paris in a completely different way.

If you like fashion and enjoyed the film Devil Wears Prada, then this little guide is a great way to follow the movie as it takes you to different sites around Paris that were featured in the film.

In the movie, Miranda Priestly who runs the magazine called Runway is the person that can strike fear into anyone and yet makes or breaks trends in the fashion industry. 

Andy, who has graduated from college is looking at a career in journalism, but does not have any fashion sense and yet still manages to land a job working for Miranda where she learns how hard a person she is.  And yet eventually she gains her trust along with more fashion knowledge enabling her to travel to Paris for fashion week.

The Devil Wears Prada Film Trail in Paris

You will actually start the Paris film trail of The Devil Wears Prada in the medieval part of Paris where Andy and the handsome writer Christian are strolling along after a day at the fashion shows.

You will get to experience the narrow streets located between the River Seine and Place Maubert and on Rue de la Bucherie find a beautiful building that was first built in the 1600's, which has a rotunda (round room) that was originally a place of medicine. 

Then take the Rue de Bievre that follows the course of an old river which used to flow into the River Seine, but it was diverted into the drainage system and is now covered, yet also down this street you will find a beautiful and tranquil garden that is not even shown on maps!

You may remember seeing Andy hurrying to get across Paris to warn Miranda about a plot against her.  Well, Andy rushes across the Pont des Arts, which is an iron bridge that was built in the early part of the 1800's to link the famous Louvre museum and the Institut de France.   

This is a lovely spot for some superb views of Paris and is popular with artists and photographers or couples relaxing taking in scenery on the many benches, but after it was severely damaged by a barge, due to its history, it was completely rebuilt as a replica in 1982.

The next stop on the Devil Wears Prada film trail is Place de La Concorde which is the scene where Andy realises that she needs to make a fresh start away from the fashion industry after the shows are over.

Place de la Concorde is actually the largest square in Paris and is ringed by statues.  In the centre of the square you will get to see the famous obelisk that was a gift from Egypt in the 1800's, but is already over 3000 years old!

A beautiful square with fountains and prestige, it one of the major symbols in Paris, especially if you can get to see it all lit up of an evening.

In another scene of the film, you will see Miranda waiting in a limousine for Andy to come out of a fashion show and this was actually shot at the Musée Galliera, which is also known as the Musée de la Mode de la Ville de Paris.  You will find the Musée Galliera housed in the 19th century Renaissance style palace that was owned by the Duchesse Galliera, who had this beautiful mansion built in 1888 and is a museum dedicated to fashion and the history of costume that was officially opened in 1977.

Obviously Paris is known for its fashion, luxurious clothing, accessories and couture and even though people think of the Champs Elysees as the main street, it is actually one of the side streets called Avenue Montaigne that is home to such names as Chanel, Christian Dior and of course Prada.

The street was actually named after the writer Michel de Montaigne and in the film this is where you get to see Andy rushing past all those famous shops back to her hotel.

And, the last stop on the Devil Wears Prada film trail of Paris is going to the Petit Palais in the 8th arrondissement, where Miranda and Andy arrive at, to attend one of the top Paris fashion shows.

Located opposite the Grand Palais, the Petit Palais was reopened after some extensive renovations to displays artworks up to the early 20th century.  The exhibition areas are laid out around an interior garden and the large windows overlook the Champs Elysees gardens.

Well, this may have given you an idea of the tour, but you can obtain the free leaflet style guide by visiting one of the Tourist Information Centres, which will provide you with a lot more fascinating facts and pictures, to make the trail even more interesting.
