How closely did they relate?: They related very similar to the outfits on the 'Devil Wears Prada' set. Of course, it wouldn't be the exact same outfit from piece by piece but it shows you the clothing that would match it.

What were some specific characteristics that matched?: The specific characteristic that matched to the outfits on set was outfit number one. It is the same snow white color and it's flare at the bottom. Another specific characteristic is outfit comparison number four. The black skirt with the thick belt attached to it was a big characteristic to that outfit. Lastly, the last outfit. Comparing it to Miranda Priestly to the editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. It gives you the same exact textile and the color.

In my opinion, it should've been better because it didn't have the exact same color and that was what I was looking for. Especially, the color and the fabrics being used. It didn't give enough details to the outfit. It seemed boring and plain.

Did this show or movie influence street and ready-to-wear fashion during this time?: Yes, it did influence street and ready-to-wear fashion, because people around the world have been wearing shirts that have the "Devil Wears Prada" title on it and it shows other designs.
