In The Devil Wears Prada, Meryl Streep riveted audiences as Miranda Priestly, editor of the Vogue-like Runway magazine. “Meryl and I decided on the white hair, and we wanted the face to be as cool as possible,” explains make-up artist J. Roy Helland. In the fashion world, with its focus on youth, smartly cut white hair ensures Miranda will be noticed. She is a non-negotiable part of the fashion scene, and her make-up projects regal confidence. Helland's design communicates not only power and control, but Miranda's sense of poise and beauty.

What color and color line did you use to achieve the white hair? I am a stylist and I\'ve tried several different colors... I have a client that very much so wants her hair to be like Meryl\'s was in this movie. Any info would be appreciated!

still no answer to former poster's question about the Amanda Priestly hair color, what is the big secret?

Meryl Streep wore a laced front wig designed by world renowned wig hair stylist to the stars, J. Roy Hellend. It was made of human hair and was lightened and toned silver and ash. Source IMDB
