Suggested correction: She may have put the bagel in her bag after taking a bite and then taken it out again right before she goes down the stairs into the subway. That's quite possible.

Continuity mistake: When Andy and Miranda are in the limo in Paris, they pull up to the curb and there is a bunch of press waiting as Miranda opens the door. However, when the shot changes, it is not the same group of people - in particular, there is a balding photographer who should be standing right there but is nowhere to be seen. It all happens too quickly for that much change.

Continuity mistake: This one has to be watched carefully but can be seen without slow motion - when Emily hits the taxi's windshield, the front shot shows her hit the hood with an orange package under her - it looks more like a box than a bag - and her purse in her right hand. Before she was hit she also had a small orange bag in her hand. A shot later, the side view of the accident shows 3 orange bags flying through the air, and her purse is on her left arm, not on the right as it should be.

Continuity mistake: When Nigel is toasting himself about what he thinks will be his new job, the glass is in his hand. The next shot shows his hands are empty and he grabs his head with both hands and walks to the window. Andy then brings him the glass. The glass is in his hands and the very next shot (no time lapse) shows the glass on the counter and then next (no time lapse) in her hands.

Suggested correction: It's likely that she put her purse down and grabbed it when the nurse entered and she put her purse down again. That's all.

Continuity mistake: When Andy meets her friends in the restaurant, Lily is holding a french fry which goes from short to longer, from straight to crooked, over the course of three or four shots.

Continuity mistake: Emily has a bad cold/flu the day of the benefit Miranda hosts - her nose is extremely red and she's congested. Miranda tells her Andy will have to go too, so Emily shows Andy photos of clients to memorize; suddenly she has no sign of a cold at all - the redness just disappears, which wouldn't happen that quickly. That night it's back in full force, just as it was earlier in the day.

Continuity mistake: At her first day of work, Andy is telling Emily about Miranda's demands, and as Emily asks "Did she say which skirts?", her arms are on her hips, but as the shot changes, her arms are folded in front of her, with no time for the shift.

Continuity mistake: In the scene right after Andy finds out about Miranda's divorce proceedings, she goes back to her hotel room to get ready for her date with Christian. When she looks at her reflection in the mirror as she's applying mascara, her hair is a little tousled and tucked behind her ears. In the very next shot, her hair is untucked and perfectly in place.

Suggested correction: Given that how the shots change, it's likely that she would have put it on the desk again.

Continuity mistake: When Emily is saying "This is what you are doing" and closes her hand, her pinky and her ring finger are up. But in the next shot, shot from the back of her, her pinky and ring finger are closed. In the next shot, in front of her, her whole arm is down. There is no way she could have put down her hand that fast.
