|Plot Summary of Bergdorf Blondes|
|"This is the story of a bevy of overprivileged Manhattan socialites and their search for the perfect hairstyle, the perfect outfit and the perfect fiance. The main character, known only as Moi (American born, British raised) is a journalist for Vogue magazine. Her mother is a upper-class British wannabe and wants nothing more that have her daughter marry the Little Earl in the castle next door. Moi escapes to the United States to lead the party girl life in New York. Since everyone who is anyone has a fiance, (and it does wonders for your complexion too) Moi and her best friend Julie go in search of the perfect PH (potential husband). Moi falls in love with broody photographer Zach only to discover he is less that stellar PH material. She suffers the humiliation of broken engagement and bounces back to an affair with a totally unsuitable married man. The search for love and status continues and is found in the most unexpected places."
