In the scene in Paris where Christian kisses Andy, from one angle her head is tilted to the right as they kiss, then the shot changes and they are now tilted in the opposite direction. This happens almost every time the angle changes throughout the kiss. See more...

The Devil Wears Prada (2006) - 6 questions
The "questions" section is for any random questions that occurred to you while watching this film, or anything you didn't entirely understand, and which Google or the IMDb can't help with. Submit them as a question, and hopefully someone will answer (the bold comments in brackets) - check back regularly. If the answer is wrong, or missing information, please use the "clarify answer" option. Don't feel limited - want to know what music played in a certain scene? Whether this was the first film to use a certain effect? Here's the place to ask!
Question: Can anyone please explain to me the deal about Nigel not getting a job in Paris? He thought he got promoted then Miranda picked someone else or something and he says something like 'when the time is right, she'll pay me back'. I've seen this film loads of times but I've never fully understood what happened. Thanks.
Answer: Miranda was going to be replaced by Jaqueline and forced to retire. Miranda worked a deal to give Nigel's new job to Jaqueline instead. Since Jaqueline now has a job she wants, there is no one eager or qualified to replace Miranda. Miranda keeps her job. Nigel doesn't get a new job and must remain with Miranda. Miranda gets what she wants, Jaqueline gets what she wants, Nigel gets screwed, but maintains the (most likely futile) hope that Miranda will pay him back by some other means in due course.
Question: I have one question I'd like to ask other viewers. In the opening sequence at 01:48, is it just me or does that look a LOT like Anne Hathaway in a blonde wig? You might need slow motion to few this. The next shot is of the "real" Anne Hathaway kissing her boyfriend and it struck me that they look very similar. At 02:31 you see the blonde again and she somehow looks very different. What do you think?
Answer: I watched this scene several times, and my personal opinion is that the first shot of the blonde woman is not Anne Hathaway. The blonde actress in question appears to be the same woman, although the differing camera angles may make her look slightly different.
Question: With all the talk about whether or not the book/movie is about the editor of Vogue, was the fact that Madonna's song "VOGUE" is heard in the film done on purpose or did the producers just pick the song because it sounded good?
Answer: In the director's commentary they say that they picked Madonna because she is the "real sound of fashion" and "so inside of fashion. Vogue is obviously one of Madonna's greatest songs about fashion. The song's title was influenced by the magazine's name, but its use in the movie had more to do with Madonna than with the magazine.
