First of all, please note the cover: This book was endorsed by Lindsay Lohan, who apparently said, "I love fashion, but fashion has never been this much fun!" This from a "fashion lover" who designs leggings. (And are "fashion lover" and "leggings designer" mutually exclusive? Just saying.)
Anyway, back to the news at hand. Fashionistas by Lynn Messina is going to become a movie directed by the man who brought us How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (um . . .) and Mystic Pizza (yay!), Donald Petrie.
The story will follow "a young woman working at a design house who plots to take down her ruthless boss by inventing a fictitious designer."
Interesting that I was just talking about how unoriginal Hollywood can be when it comes to rom-coms, and now we have something that both sounds an awful lot like The Devil Wears Prada and utilizes at least one (so far) of the tiresome rom-com gimmicks: entire plot revolving around a lie.
Is this something you want to see? Have you read this book or anything by Lynn Messina? Does Lindsay Lohan's endorsement help or hinder this project?
