From the beginning of the film, Andy never thought she'd be a fashion editor. In fact, she completely wrote off the position at Runway, even though she was told repeatedly that it was the job a "million girls would kill for." Instead, she held onto her lifelong desire for wanting to be a journalist.

As for Miranda? Her idea of taking a chance was hiring someone who was completely inexperienced in fashion –– and it certainly was a decision that could have crashed and burned. But sometimes that's when the magic happens and you'll never know unless you take a leap of faith.
