Fashion Quotes

You’ll take what I give you and you’ll like it. - The Devil Wears Prada [ Nigel ]
Ugh Andy. Be serious. You are not trying. You are whining. What is it that you want me to say to you, huh? Do you want me to say, ‘Poor you, Miranda’s picking on you. Poor you, poor Andy’? Hmm? Wake up, six! She’s just doing her job. Don’t you know that you are working at the place that published some of the greatest artists of this century? Halston, Lagerfield, de la Renta? And what they did, what they created was greater than art. Because you live your life in it. Well not you, obviously, but some people. You think this is just a magazine? Hmm? This is not just a magazine? This is a shining beacon of hope for.. oh, I don’t know.. let’s say a young boy growing up in Rhode Island with 6 brothers pretending to go to soccer practice when he was really going to sewing class and reading Runway under the covers at night with a flashlight. You have no idea how many legends have walked these halls and what’s worse, you don’t care. Cause this place where so many people would die to work, you only deign to work. And you want to know why she doesn’t kiss you on the forehead and give you a gold star on your homework at the end of the day. Wake up, sweetheart. - The Devil Wears Prada [ Nigel ]
They’re called ‘The Clackers’! The sound that their stilettos make on the marble lobby it’s like CLACKCLACKCLACKCLACKCLACKCLACKCLACKCLACK! Ugh! And they all act like they’re curing cancer or something. The amount of time and energy that these people spend on these insignificant minute details and for what? So that tomorrow they can spend another 300 thousand dollars reshooting something that was probably fine to begin with to sell people things they don’t need. - The Devil Wears Prada [ Andrea ]

It’s not funny! She is not happy until everyone around her is panicked, nauseous or suicidal. - The Devil Wears Prada [ Andrea ]
Oh. Ok, I see you think this has nothing to do with you. You go to your closet and you select, I don’t know, that lumpy blue sweater for instance because you’re trying to tell the world that you take yourself to seriously to care about what you put on your back but what you don’t know is that sweater is not just blue, it’s not turquoise, it’s not lapis, it’s actually cerulean. You’re also blithely unaware of the fact that in 2002, Oscar de la Renta did a collection of cerulean gowns. And then I think it was Yves Saint Laurent, wasn’t it, who showed cerulean military jackets?.. I think we need a jacket here… And then cerulean quickly showed up in the collections of eight different designers. And then it, uh, filtered down through the department stores and then trickled on down into some tragic Casual Corner where you, no doubt, fished it out of some clearance bin. However, that blue represents millions of dollars and countless jobs and it’s sort of comical how you think that you’ve made a choice that exempts you from the fashion industry when, in fact, you’re wearing a sweater that was selected for you by the people in this room… from a pile of stuff. - The Devil Wears Prada [ Miranda Priestly ]
