Seven Fictitious Fashion Editors We'd Never Want To Work With

Maggie Prescott

Funny Face (1957)

As the lady in charge of a Quality magazine, Maggie isn't used to hearing the word no.

She didn't stand a chance against this bullheaded woman's will.

Click through for condescending control freaks and power-hungry ladder climbers who manage to steal every scene they're in.
