Miranda Priestly quotes

Also, tell Richard I saw all the pictures that he sent for that feature on the female paratroopers and they're all so deeply unattractive. Is it impossible to find a lovely, slender, female paratrooper? Am I reaching for the stars here? Not really.

The details of your incompetence do not interest me.

That's all. [At conclusion of any request made of Andrea]

[To Andrea] This... stuff? Oh... ok. I see, you think this has nothing to do with you. You go to your closet and you select out, oh I don't know, that lumpy blue sweater, for instance, because you're trying to tell the world that you take yourself too seriously to care about what you put on your back. But what you don't know is that 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 St. 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 to me 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. From a pile of stuff.

By all means move at a glacial pace; you know how that thrills me.

We're done here.

Is there some reason my coffee isn't here? Has she died? [There are variants of this line in the deleted scenes]

Is there some reason my coffee isn't here? Is it beyond the collective power of my staff to accomplish this simple task?

Is there some reason my coffee isn't here? Has she gone to Rwanda for the beans?

If I see freesias anywhere, I will be very disappointed. [There is an alternate version of this line on the deleted scenes]

If I see freesias I will lose what is left of my mind.
