The Best Movies And TV Shows Set In The World Of Magazines

Taken from here.
The world of magazines has long proved irresistible material for Hollywood creatives.

Now, Conde Nast is looking to cash in on that instinct -- they've hired former CW head Dawn Ostroff to whip up film and TV properties based on the company's magazine brands.

But we're guessing that there's certainly a few features and show ideas in the pipeline.

Audrey Hepburn's bookstore clerk infused fashion spreads with brains for the fictional Quality Magazine in 1957's "Funny Face."

2006's "The Devil Wears Prada" satirized Conde Nast's Vogue and its famously frosty editrix, Anna Wintour.

But it was Kate Hudson's "How to Lose A Guy in Ten Days" (2003) that actually got to film outside the Conde Nast building and in its lobby.
