Two acclaimed performances by two acclaimed performers. We have Glenn Close as Cruella De Vil in 101 Dalmatians and Meryl Streep as Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada (This one even got an Oscar nomination)
Who’s the best fashion bitch?
Miranda. Always and forever.
I’ve read the novel of DWP and hated Miranda there. To me she was not only snobbish, but also simply plain stupid.
Meryl created a whole new character, a real woman, someone to adore deeply, even if you hate her. You can’t help but adore this woman who quietly demands in a still deadly tone.
Glenn’s great as Cruella though, no doubt. She even gets extra points for getting really dirty (at least in the first movie). But it still is a very cartoonish character. Played with delight, but still cartoonish.
