Andy/Miranda is a popular femslash pairing in The Devil Wears Prada fandom.

Canon

The movie centers around Andrea 'Andy' Sachs who moves to New York City with her boyfriend to peruse her dream of becoming a journalist. Instead, she ends up working for Miranda Priestly, the Devil herself, Queen of the fashion industry, and Editor of the fashion magazine, Runway. Andy is hired as Miranda's slave, personal assistant. Eventually, despite her initial idealism, she gets sucked into the fashion world and turns into bit of a clacker (1. noun. a high fashion, sophisticated girl, always wearing the new Chanel or Yves Saint Laurent. Someone who knows the difference between the colors black and onyx). Andy starts to put her job, and the needs of Mrs. Miranda Priestly ahead the needs of her family, friends, and her boyfriend, Nate.[1]

Fandom

While relatively small, the fandom is still very active - even after the 10+ years since the movie was first released. It has been noted that the popularity of other femslash pairings, such as Emma Swan and Regina Mills for Once Upon a Time, brought a new influx of fans who became interested in the pairing.

The severe divisions and homophobia in the Once Upon A Time Fandom has actually led to a strange influx of fangirls into DWP. They’re kind of shell shocked from the vitriol and bullying in OUAT against Swan Queen. Many are looking for a fandom with good writing and a calm and supportive atmosphere and have turned up in DWP. In its infancy, several of the best DWP writers started to write in the Swan Queen fandom and many of their fans are following them backwards into their previous fandoms to find good work.[2]

In recent years there was been some crossover in fandom between the TV series of Supergirl, specifically the popular femslash pairing of Kara Danvers/Cat Grant. Kara/Cat has been noted for it's similarity to Andy/Miranda as it too features an older woman, Cat Grant, who is the head of her company that goes on to employ a younger personal assistant, Kara Danvers, to aid in her daily business.
