Simon Doonan Says The Devil Wears Prada's Nigel Was Based (Partly) on Him
Don't get us wrong, actor Stanley Tucci did a fine job playing a fabulous gay editor in Devil Wears Prada. That being said, I think we can all agree Simon Doonan, he of the liberty print shirts and endless quips, would have done a much better job. It turns out that's no coincidence. According to Barneys' creative ambassador at-large, Tucci based his character partly on Doonan.
