Desiree's (a.k.a. DJ) grandmother, Katherine Carter, turns her house into a boarding house for young girls in hopes of them becoming proper young ladies and possibly, models.  After all, Mrs. Carter had been a model herself back in the day, a 60's fashion icon to be exact.   All of the girls are quite different, but they must learn to get along.  Can they do it?

Stealing Bradford
Stealing Bradford

When Taylor is caught flirting with Bradford, his girlfriend, Rihannon, is not thrilled.  DJ decides to switch rooms so that Rihannon doesn't have to face her.  Did Taylor really steal him away though, or was Bradford the one to blame?

Homecoming Queen
Homecoming Queen

The Homecoming Queen title is up for grabs.  Will it be sweet (or so you'd think) southern belle Eliza, the terrible Taylor, or will DJ step up to claim the crown?  Eliza's got her eye on the prize, and just how far will she go to get it?

Viva Vermont!
Viva Vermont!

Mrs. Carter has a man, a very rich man, who invites all the girls to his cabin in Vermont for a weekend away.  Some of the girls plan for a quiet getaway, and possibly some much needed bonding time.  Others of them, however, have a much different idea of what the weekend is supposed to be.

Lost in Las Vegas
Lost in Las Vegas

DJ and Taylor hate each other, or so you'd think.  But when Taylor calls her up saying she's lonely, DJ flies to Las Vegas to keep her company over the Christmas break.  Will it bring the girls closer, or make DJ wish she'd never attempted to try?

New York Debut
New York Debut

Eliza is excited that Taylor is gone. She thinks that now, she'll be the hottest one on the runway. When Taylor shows up at the last minute, the girls fight over whether it's fair or not she automatically gets a spot in their fashion show, even though the finalists were already chosen.

Spring Breakdown
Spring Breakdown

When the girls go to Florida for Spring Break, everyone expects it to be a nice, simple vacation to simply get away. It's neither nice nor simple though, when Eliza ends up missing and they have to spend their vacation time looking for her.


Last Dance

With their senior year coming to an end, the girls have one last final fashion show to attend. Who will shine, who will not? Will the girls stay friends or leave the house only to never speak again, despite all of the things they've gone through together?
