The Devil wears Prada - Who was the devil again ?

So I still can't decide - is it the Meryl Streep character who is supposed to be the devil or the Anne Hathaway character ? Because it seems to me like Meryl is:

a) working hard and doing her job well
b) telling it like it is - ie I work in fashion, it is what it is and it is indeed all about making money and influencing trends in a very competitive environment
c) giving the "smart" girl who is utterly clueless - a break

wheras the Anna Hathaway character is:

a) whiny
b) sanctimonious
c) lacking commitment
d) playing the "but she made me do it" card for all it is worth

Yes, yes, there are some outrageously demanding antics on the part of Ms Priestly. She is very, very naughty to ask some of the things she does of her staff. However, I'd prefer to work with Miranda Priestly any day of the week.

Hell, I'd learn a lot more than College taught me.

I thought Martha Stewart had the devil job locked...

PK - no chainsaws but Meryl wields words in a similar fashion and delivers major damage that way. Oh, and Martha Stewart - hmmm. Not as scary as Meryl in this film.
