Hiram Bent ( Willard Louis ), a St. Louis hat dealer, goes to Paris with his conservative, prudish wife. At a fashion show, Madame Claire ( Rose Dione ) fails to interest them and sends for Fifi ( Corinne Griffith ), a particularly successful model and saleswoman who makes a large sale and wins Hiram's admiration. While delivering a hat to the fiancée of Étienne Du Beauvray ( Norman Kerry ), Fifi complains to an officer (actually Étienne) about his horse destroying the hat, so Fifi is forced to improvise a hat for Marianne ( Dorothy Cumming ). Later, Étienne meets Fifi at the salon, and a romance develops. Impressed by her sales ability, Bent buys out Madame Claire and establishes Fifi as "Mademoiselle Modiste." Étienne, suspicious of ent's activities, challenges him to a duel, but the misunderstanding is soon cleared up and Fifi is happily united with Étienne.
This 1926 silent comedy/romance was based from the novel Mademoiselle Modiste by Henry Martyn Blossom, produced by Corinne Griffith Productions , starring the popular actress Corinne Griffith. Tragically, Mademoiselle Modiste now remains a lost silent film.
