Did you know?
The film makes quite a few changes to the book. In the novel, Miranda's tyrannical nature is more obvious. In the film, they decided to tone her character down. She's still as domineering, but they thought it would be funnier if Miranda remained calm while making impossible demands. Nigel is only a minor character in the book and a flamboyantly gay stereotype. His role is expanded in the film, and while he is probably gay, Stanley Tucci's portrayal of it is a little more subtle (glancing at men at a fashion shoot). Also in the novel, Miranda is British and Emily is American. In the film, they're swapped around. Emily Blunt insisted Emily should be British. Finally, Lily's accident in the book becomes Emily's. Lily becomes an alcoholic after watching the effect Runway has on Andy, but instead of being hit by a taxi like Emily, she drives into one in the book.

Anna Wintour, the formidable editor of Vogue (and the rumored inspiration for Miranda Priestly), was not invited to the premiere. She did however attend an advance screening for the press (dressed, head-to-toe, in Prada.)

In one of the original drafts, Miranda explains how she started out as an assistant and worked her way up. It is also revealed where she grew up: Pearl River, New York. The scene then continues on to the scene of Miranda confessing her divorce to Andy. This however isn't true to the book as Miranda was born Miriam Princhek, to orthodox Jews, in the East End of London and started off as an assistant to an English designer. She became well known in London fashion and started learning French at night to soon become junior editor of Chic magazine in Paris. At 24 she changed her name to Miranda Priestly, replaced her rough, London accent with a sophisticated one before spending 10 years at French Runway before she was transferred to New York.

When Andy is having dinner with Christian, her makeup looks dark and dramatic. When they leave the restaurant and they are kissing outside a building, her makeup is simple and lighter.

When Nigel and Andy are toasting for Nigel's new job, they're each holding a glass. In the next scene Nigel has no glass but Andy is still holding hers, then the camera shifts and Andy is holding both glasses.

When Andy is telling her friends about getting her new job while at Nate's restaurant, Nate pours wine five times on screen when there is only four of them at the table and actually only three of them are drinking.
