We all were Andy Sachs once

“Devil wears Prada” has quotes for every occasion.

Emily: You don’t deserve them, I mean you eat carbs, for Chrissake!

Nigel: Okay. Now, Chanel. You’re in desperate need of Chanel.

Jocelyn: [at a board meeting over the April issue] Well… they’re showing a lot of florals right now, so I was thinking…
Miranda Priestly: Florals? For spring? Ground breaking.

Emily: I’m sorry, do you have some prior commitment? Some hideous skirt convention you have to go to?

Nigel: Oh, never mind. I’m sure you have plenty more poly-blend where that came from.

Miranda Priestly: I need 10 or 15 skirts from Calvin Klein.
Andy Sachs: What kind of skirts?
Miranda Priestly: …please bore someone else with your questions.

Miranda Priestly: …You have no sense of fashion…
Andy Sachs: I think that depends on…
Miranda Priestly: No, no, that wasn’t a question.

Miranda Priestly: Find me that piece of paper I had in my hand yesterday morning.

Nigel: Let me know when your whole life goes up in smoke. Means it’s time for a promotion.

Nigel: There’s a scale. One nod is good, two nods is very good. There’s only be one actual smile on record and that was Tom Ford in 2001. If she doesn’t like it she shakes her head. Then of course there’s the pursing of the lips.
Andy Sachs: Which means?
Nigel: Catastrophe.

Emily: I have Patrick!

The best one is the “cerulean blue” speech. It was one of the first entries I published on the blog (you can find it here). I’ve memorized the speech and I’m looking forward to spontaneously saying it to someone:

Miranda Priestly:  Something funny?
Andy Sachs: No. No, no. Nothing’s… You know, it’s just that both those belts look exactly the same to me. You know, I’m still learning about all this stuff and, uh…
Miranda Priestly: ‘This… stuff’? Oh. Okay. I see. You think this has nothing to do with you. You go to your closet and you select… 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. And 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 Saint Laurent… wasn’t it who showed cerulean military jackets? I think we need a jacket here. And then cerulean quickly showed up in the collections of eight different designers. And then it, uh, 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 it’s sort of comical 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.

An ode to Elle UK


scanned by susiebubble

I’ve said many times on the blog that Elle UK is my favourite international magazine (yes, I love it more than Vogue Paris). I’m subscribed to it, and everytime that it arrives on the mailbox, it is a moment of happiness. It usually arrives very early in the month, which is a surprise considering how bad subscriptions services are. I don’t understand why they don’t send the issues to the subscriptors first, as they are actually their best readers, don’t you think? I hate seeing a magazine on the newstands and not to buying it because I’m subscribed to it.

I know that Elle UK is not going to disappoint me. Every cover is fantastic, and even though I’m not a fan of all the celebrities portrayed, I must say that the photographs are usually amazing. I’m talking about the subscriptors special covers, but the normal ones are good as well. The articles and the fashion items choices are always great too, which is very important.

Today I’m posting the best Elle UK covers (mostly all of them, actually), because when I saw their latest one with Chanel Iman (february 2011), it reminded me of how good they are. This post is an ode to Elle UK.

Ya he dicho muchas veces que Elle UK es mi revista internacional favorita (sí, por encima de Vogue Paris). Estoy suscrita a ella, y cada vez que llega al buzón, es toda una alegría. Normalmente suele llegar muy pronto, lo que es una sorpresa, considerando lo mal que funcionan las suscripciones de las revistas. No entiendo por qué no envían las revistas a los suscriptores antes, si son sus mejores lectores, ¿no os parece? Odio ver una revista en los kioskos y no comprármela porque estoy suscrita a ella y todavía me tiene que llegar. Por eso sólo estoy suscrita a Elle UK, porque no llega a España.

Sé que Elle UK no me va a decepcionar. Cada portada es fantástica, y aunque no sea fan de todas las celebrities que aparecen, debo decir que las fotografías elegidas son realmente buenas. Hablo de las portadas especiales para suscriptores, pero las normales también están muy bien. Los artículos y las prendas para las guías de estilo son geniales también, que es importante.

Hoy publico mis portadas preferidas (casi todas, en realidad), porque cuando he visto la última con Chanel Iman (febrero 2011), me han recordado lo buenos que son. Este post es una oda a Elle UK.
