Maybe you noticed when The Devil Wears Prada’s Miranda Priestly asks new assistant Andy whether Demarchelier has confirmed. Yes, she means Patrick. You could have caught Demarchelier’s name in one of these cultural moments, or you could have been flipping through an issue of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, or Vanity Fair from the past 40 years.
