'The Devil Wears Prada' Quotes About Fashion

The movie features high-end fashion, with most of the characters valuing fashion, more than anything else. Here is the famous Meryl Streep 'Devil Wears Prada' quotes monologue that will certainly do the job of taking you down the memory lane.

High end fashion is the central theme of the movie.

14. "This 'stuff'? Oh, okay. I see. You think this has nothing to do with you... 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? And then cerulean quickly showed up in the collections of eight different designers...Then it 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 so 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 the sweater that was selected for you by the people in this room."

- Miranda Priestly, 'The Devil Wears Prada'.

Miranda: Please bore someone else with your questions. And make sure we have Pier 59 at 8am tomorrow, and remind Jocelyn I need to see a few of those satchels that Mark is doing in the pony, and then tell Simone I'll take Jackie if Maggie isn't available. Did Demarchelier confirm?

Andrea: D-D-Demarchelier?

Miranda: Demarchelier. Get him on the phone.

Andrea: O-Ok.

Miranda: And Emily...?

Andrea: Yes?

Miranda: [Looks down at Andy's shoes] That's all."
