As are the two young models, Taryn Blake, who has been modelling since she could walk and has a svengali for a mother,Julia, who sees her more as a meal ticket than as a daughter, and knows that the day is coming near when all of her daughters payments will go directly to her, and Laurie Caswell, the innocent, who doesn't really want to do it but is being pestered by Racine who sees her as the next hot commodity. Also thrown into the mix are Laurie's parents Dinah and Michael who are at odds over Laurie's modelling. Also added is Harper World Wide, whose perfume company uses Racine's models for their ads.

Trashy, glamorous fluff wasn't enough
18 August 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

From a trashy movie pilot came a series based upon the premise that:

The modeling world can have a dark side. (HORRIFYING!) Parents might use their child as an income source. (SCANDALOUS!) Models can be bitchy. (DEPLORABLE!) Modeling is not all glamor. (SHOCKING!) Not every model is happy. (TERRIBLE!) People can be cruel to each other. (OUTRAGEOUS!)

I think that about sums up the basic themes of the show.

Unfortunately, by the time this night time soap came out, the Ewings of Dallas, the Carringtons of Dynasty, and the Channings of Falcon Crest already had numbed the public to the `glamor' and much more shocking bills of fare than what most considered to be the fluff world of modeling. The movie pilot utilized all the good parts of the story and left little for the series to use.

The show's glamorous spark fizzled out quickly.
