Yet, when she's reached the pinacle of success in that arena, she finds the view from the top lonely, empty, and unfulfilling. Anne, a small-town New England girl, is unable to resist the temptation of the bright lights of New York. She finds a secretarial job with Lyon Burke -- a well-known entertainment attorney -- who numbers among his clients the creme de la creme of show-business elite (Neely O'Hara among them). After being asked by a photographer to "fill in" for a model who fails to appear for a job, Anne is suddenly catapulted into the role of super-model. Her face is everywhere -- magazine covers, billboards, and television. Soon Neely and Anne find themselves competing for the affections of Lyon.
