Christian: of what American Runway will look like when Jacqueline Follet is the new editor in chief. Andy: they are replacing Miranda? Christian: yeah. And she’s bringing me in to run all the editorial content. You are really surprised? Jacqueline is a lot younger than Miranda and she has a fresher take on things. Not to mention Runway’s one of the most expensive books in the business. Jacqueline does the same thing for a lot less money. And Irv…Irv’s a businessman, you know. Andy: Miranda’s life would be devastated. Her whole life is about Runway. He can’t do that to her. It’s done. Irv’s gonna tell Miranda after the party for James. And she has no idea?

11 Nigel: for 72 years, Runway has been more than a magazine. It’s been a beacon of elegance and grace. Miranda Priestly is the finest possible guardian of that beacon, setting a standard that inspired people across the globe. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Miranda Priestly. Miranda: thank you, my dear friend. Bonjour. Thank you very much for coming today to help celebrate our dear friend, James Holt. But before I talk to you about James and his many accomplishments, I would like first to share some news with you. Um, as many of you know, uh, recently Massimo Corteleoni has agree to finance the expansion of James Holt label, transforming the work of this visionary artist into a global brand, which is really an exciting enterprise. Runway and James Holt share many things in common, chef among them, a commitment to excellence. And so, it should come as no surprise that when the time came for James to choose the new president of James Holt International, he chose from within the Runway family. And it’s my great happiness today to announce to you all that that person is my friend and long-esteemed colleague Jacquelline Follet. Jacquelline: thank you. Merci. Miranda: now to the main event, our celebration of James Holt. We at Runway are very proud to have been … Nigel: when the time is right, she’ll pay me back. Andy: you sure about that? Nigel: No, but I hope for the best. I have to.

15 Miranda: you thought I didn’t know. I’ve known what’s happening for quite some time. It just took me a little while to find a suitable alternative for Jacqueline. And that James Holt job was so absurdly overpaid that of course she jumped at it. So I just had to tell Irv that Jacqueline was unavailable. The truth is no one that can do what I do including her. Any of the other choices would have found that job impossible and the magazine would have suffered. Especially because of the list, the list of designers, photographers, editors, writers, models, all of whom were found by me, nurtured by me… and have promised me they will follow me whenever and if ever I choose to leave Runway. So he reconsidered. But I was very, very impressed how intently you tried to warn me. I never thought I would say this, Andrea, but I really…I see a great deal of myself in you. You can see beyond what people what and what they need and you can choose for yourself. Andy: I don’t think I’m like that. I…I couldn’t do what you did to Nigel, Miranda. I couldn’t do something like that. Miranda: mm, you already did. To Emily. Andy: that’s not what I...no, that was…that was different. I didn’t have a choice. No, no, you chose. You chose to get ahead. You want this life, those choices are necessary. Andy: but what if this isn’t what I want? I mean, what if I don’t wanna live the way you live? Miranda: don’t be ridiculous, Andrea. Everybody wants this. Everybody wants to be us.
