Sonja (Mischa Barton) is being hounded by the press about a risqué photo which forces her to consider quitting the modeling business. Aware of the chemistry between Raina (Sara Paxton) and Cole (Nico Tortorella), Claudia (Ell Macpherson) secures a campaign for a major clothing line for the two. Raina struggles with the public image she must maintain with Cole, while her true feelings are for Chris (Ben Hollingsworth). Raina’s family drama finds its way back into her life and she finally faces her father (guest star Sebastian Roche, GENERAL HOSPITAL). Isaac’s (Corbin Bleu) relationship with Vivienne (guest star Jamie Murray, DEXTER) is strained when he is surprisingly replaced, by Chris during a photo shoot. Raina’s brother, Alex (guest star Billy Magnussen, AS THE WORLD TURNS), lands himself in a bit of trouble with the Russian mob, but Marissa (Ashley Madekwe) comes to his rescue.

Chris (Ben Hollingsworth) believes his chances at a modeling career are over and prepares to leave New York City until he receives a surprise phone call from Claudia (Elle Macpherson). Claudia informs Raina (Sara Paxton) that she needs to focus more on her career and less on her new relationship with Chris. Isaac (Corbin Bleu) confronts Vivienne (guest star Jamie Murray, DEXTER) about her behavior towards him at a go-see, and the two end up working out an arrangement that serves both their needs. Marissa (Ashley Madekwe) accuses Sonja (Mischa Barton) of stealing the Versace campaign from her and decides to seek revenge in a very public way, which leads Sonja to Cole (Nico Tortorella) for assistance. Marissa invites Raina’s brother, Alex (guest star Billy Magnussen, “As the World Turns”), to a party hosted by Nina Garcia (PROJECT RUNWAY), where more secrets about Raina’s past are revealed.

Raina Marinelli (Sara Paxton, “Last House on the Left”) makes an unforgettable impression while strutting down the runway in a Zac Posen (guest starring as himself) gown during New York Fashion Week, and effectively steals the spotlight away from fellow model Sonja Stone (Mischa Barton, THE O.C.). Sonja has been out of the country for mysterious reasons, and is now desperate to convince her agent, Claudia Foster (Elle Macpherson, FRIENDS) that she can reclaim her standing as the reigning supermodel. Deemed the new “it” girl, Raina soon meets Chris Andrews (Canadian Ben Hollingsworth, The Line), a strikingly handsome Iowa farm boy just entering the modeling world, and takes him to the “models’ residence” where she lives along with other young hopefuls.
