Storyline

Dyan Draper, an editor of a well known fashion magazine, is infamous for writing columns that destroy other people's career. She also drives her employees to near madness with her orders and therefore isn't well liked. Lauren Jeffreys, the editor of another magazine, meets up with Dyan in an attempt to get Dyan not to write about her in her next column but to no avail. Lauren tries again at Dyan's place but the next time we see Dyan she is dead on the floor. Lauren is the prime suspect but she is a friend of Perry's and Della and so Perry's take the defence. Lauren had a child when she was 16 and the child grew up to be Julia Collier, Dyan's private assistant, and Lauren and Julia try to get back together. Meanwhile, Ken comes up against Albert Nardone, infamous crime mobster and little known fashion designer as Nardone's nephew gets killed by Dyan's killer and unwillingly has one of Nardone hoods 'assist' him in trying to find the killer...

Fatal Fashion- Wears Well ****
21 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Excellent Perry Mason show with the theme in the end that hell hath no fury as a daughter scorned.

Valerie Harper briefly appears in a memorable portrayal. She plays a miserable fashion editor who digs up dirt on all those around her orbit. Of course, Harper, with her blond hair, is soon killed off. Suspicion immediately falls on Diana Muldaur, a rival editor, who had words with the Harper character right before the latter's demise.

The person playing Tony Loomis steals the show here. As an underworld hood, Loomis is jealous of college boy attorney Ken Melansky (Robert R. Moses) and lets him know it. You think that they're reaching some kind of bond, but when the they apprehend the guy they think knocked off the head gangster's cousin, Loomis shows his true colors.

Scott Baio appears as a young, sure-of-himself- D.A.- ready to lock horns with Mason. He tells him at the beginning that he looks forward to beating him in the case. We all know how this turns out.
