13 Reasons Andy From "The Devil Wears Prada" Is Actually Just A Privileged White Girl

"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."

The Devil Wears Prada is an artistic masterpiece (NOT up for discussion — sorry, not sorry). I was literally obsessed with Miranda Priestly and Andy Sachs, but now that I've worked in the industry for a while, I have some serious issues with the story... Mostly with Andy Sachs.

1. Even though we know Miranda took a chance and hired Andy because she was smart, a grade-A bougie fashion pub like Runway would NEVER hire someone who didn't even know the magazine's EIC.

2. Are there times we feel sorry for Andy? Of course! But are there times when she's being peak privileged white girl? OF COURSE! Like when she's taking Miranda's messages and asks the caller to spell "Gabbana." Ummm, sis. Look it up.

3. And when she threw away a perfectly good steak after Miranda changed her mind about lunch, I was screaming "PRIVILEEEEEEEEGE!!!"

4. But let's talk about how she said "stuff" in reference to the work of the power players in the room. Like, girl, you are ENTRY-LEVEL. SIT. DOWN.

5. If Andy was so set on being a writer, I don't understand why she didn't make time to actually WRITE so that she could build her portfolio.

6. TBH, Andy's whole demeanor makes me believe she has to play the victim.

7. This movie tried so hard to convince me that Nigel dressed Andy one time from the fashion closet, and she just suddenly knew how to dress impeccably all by herself.

8. Not only is Andy problematic, but so are her friends, who literally feel entitled to all her time, as if she shouldn't be out here grindin'.

9. I don't care how much of a love story we want — Nate had a SERIOUS ego problem and couldn't handle Andy shifting her attention from him to her career. And that seems like a personal problem he needs to deal with...alone.

10. Am I the only one tired of seeing movies portray ~struggling~ adults living in one-bedroom NYC apartments?

11. Andy throwing out expensive stuff when she's mad is a problem, and I don't like it. A phone? In the fountain? Why not sell it, or simply give it back since you were literally just with Miranda?

12. Speaking of expensive, why the hell did Nate put "$8 worth of Jarlsberg" in a grilled cheese? That's almost a pound of cheese, and I'm sure everyone's stomachs were hurting by the end of the night.

13. Miranda Priestly is actually the real victim in all of this. I SAID WHAT I SAID.
