Storyline

After the Ball, a retail fairy tale set in the world of fashion. Kate's dream is to design for couturier houses. Although she is a bright new talent, Kate can't get a job. No one trusts the daughter of Lee Kassell, a retail guru who markets clothes "inspired" by the very designers Kate wants to work for. Who wants a spy among the sequins and stilettos? Reluctantly, Kate joins the family business where she must navigate around her duplicitous stepmother and two wicked stepsisters, but with help from a prince of a guy in the shoe department, a god-brotherly gay pal in the design office, her godmother's vintage clothes, and a shocking switch of identities, Kate exposes the evil trio, saves her father's company, and proves that everyone can wear a fabulous dress.

User Reviews

 
Light-hearted fun
20 December 2018 | by fayriliumSee all my reviews

Just like its name, After The Ball is a modern twist on the Cinderella story with a bit more substance thrown in.

The supporting cast (especially Maurice!) and a well paced storyline makes this a delight to watch.

Though the story is predictable, there was enough heart in it to make you want to follow Kate's journey. There is more to the plot than just romantic attraction but has elements of father/daughter relstionships, greed/deceit and mateship.

You'll detect elements of Devil Wears Prada and She's The Man so if that's your kind of movie give this a go.
