The Devil Wears Prada is finally continuing its story: but this time it will focus on Miranda's other assistant, Emily Charlton (Emily Blunt in the film).

Chances are after you saw the movie or read the two books based on Andrea's life you wondered what happened to Emily.

While the first two books in the series focused the life of Miranda's assistant Andrea Sachs (played by Anne Hathaway in the movie), the latest work titled When Life Gives You Lululemons chronicles Emily's career as a celebrity image consultant who lands a huge opportunity in the suburbs.

In Weisberger's follow-up, Emily heads to Greenwich, Connecticut, to help spin the image of supermodel and senator's wife Karolina Hartwell who got a DUI.

Connected to her by a woman named Miriam who is transitioning to be a new stay-at-home mom, it sounds like we might not even recognise Emily anymore by the end of the book.

Hopefully some burning questions about the original "first assistant" to Miranda will be answered:

Does she become nicer?

Does she eventually get to experience Paris?

Do she and Andy ever meet again?

You'll have to wait until June 2018 for the next instalment, coming 15 years after the debut of The Devil Wears Prada.

However you can read an excerpt of the first chapter here, which opens with Emily at quite the New Year's Eve fête.

Since we pretty much are never getting a sequel to the on-screen version of Weisberger's novel, another book in the series is a big win.
