She moved to New York City and began working as the assistant to Vogue’s editor in chief, Anna Wintour, a job she held for ten months.
Weisberger worked as an assistant editor at Departures Magazine. At the same time, she began writing a story about her time at Vogue. After the manuscript was completed, it sold within two weeks. Published in 2003, The Devil Wears Prada was a New York Times best seller. It was adapted for film in 2006. Though the television rights to the book were purchased by Fox, the series was never produced.
In 2005, Weisberger published her second novel, Everyone Worth Knowing. Though it debuted on the New York Times best seller list, it received bad reviews and fell off the list within two weeks. Her third novel, Chasing Harry Winston, had a similar critical response, and was named Entertainment Weekly’s Worst Book of 2008. The book is being adapted for film.
A fourth novel, Last Night at Chateau Marmont, was published in 2010. Telling the story of a celebrity couple, it debuted on the New York Times best seller list and received favorable reviews from many of the publications that had panned her previous books.
Weisberger lives in New York and continues to work as a writer.
