The character of Miranda Priestley is supposedly based on Anna Wintour (her nickname in the industry is 'Nuclear Wintour'). See more »
At 39:41 of the film, Andy is seen entering the Spring Street 6 train (subway) uptown on a train that says downtown only. Immediately after this in the same sequence she is exiting the 51 Street 6 train downtown stop. This would have been impossible on two fronts, since she would not be able to get uptown from Spring Street to 51st on a downtown train and furthermore surely would not have exited at the downtown stop at 51st street if coming from Spring.

No! Miranda Pristley can say it or merely breath it and the refusal comes as a devastating blow to her eager bunch of minions . Those moments were my favorites in a film that promises a hearty meal but delivers a frustrating bland soufflé. Meryl Streep however, makes it palatable and some times right down delicious. Anne Hathaway , so good in "Brokeback Mountain", is so uninteresting here that she manages to survive only when she's sharing the frame with Meryl Streep and that's because we're not looking at her. How can the fairy tale be so uneven, how can we possibly root for the evil stepmother rather than Cinderella. That seems a miscalculation of enormous proportions. All in all I could actually seat through the whole thing again just to see Meryl/Miranda purse her lips.
