Take entertainment, fashion and the competition for a hot job, combine them and you have the perfect vehicle for creating characters as diverse as the faces they wear.
There is a fabulous hosting job opening for a new show “Fashion Victim”. Georgina Heffernon tells the story of three of the women who try out for the job, tells their stories and let’s us see into the world of fashion and fame. Will they survive the betrayal, jealousy and back biting that are all part of the tabloid world of the Glitterati?
The first of our three women is Amber Barrett who could be the poster child for “Be careful what you wish for”. Sure Amber, who had been totally broke, had made it. Along with the parties, jewelry and fabulous clothes, she wound up with a scumbag boyfriend who leaked nude pictures to the press, now she has to scramble to clean up her image.
Next we meet Emily. Emily is 29 and still living in council housing with her dad. She learned to love fashion at her mothers knee. Her mom was always impeccably turned out and started training Emily early in such things as always wearing makeup when you were going to leave the house. They would pore over the fashion magazines together and then her mother died. Emily knows that she’s bound for fame, fashion, jewelry and marvelous parties and events. But, she’s still not sure how it will happen since she’s only a sales assistant at a makeup counter in a department store.
Now let me introduce you to Saffron. A photographer that worked with Saffron said to her one time “You shouldn’t drink on an empty head”. This little remark was being made while she was knocking back some champagne and a couple of smokes before she would start work on the session she was already late for. She has it all, including a reputation for drinking too much. How long can she hang on and even greater, can she turn things around with her drinking?
Three women, one spot on a new TV show. Who will get it, who will be able to stay as part of the glamorous “Glitterati”?
