Struggling New York fashion designer Kay Denham finally saves enough money to go to Paris. She leaves behind her doting but dull fiancé, Berk Sutter, in a rebellion against all that is "sweet and conventional." In Paris, she is lonely and undirected, and ventures into the American Bar in her hotel where she meets Gene Anders and his friend, George Potter. Gene falls in love with Kay, and they date, but always with George as chaperon, because George does not trust Gene's motives. Kay remains somewhat aloof, disbelieving Gene's confession of love because she thinks he is too confident to be in love. George attempts to undermine her faith in Gene, and out of spite, Kay agrees to accompany Gene to Switzerland, hoping to prove that she and Gene can maintain a platonic relationship. George appoints himself chaperon and accompanies them to St. Moritz. The trio try all the winter sports, including tobaggoning, skiing and ice skating, thoroughly exhausting themselves. Gene and Kay become annoyed by George's constant intervention, and after George professes his love for Kay and warns her that Gene will never marry her, he resigns as chaperon. This relieves some tension, and Kay and he find themselves on good terms again. Gene's reluctance to commit himself, however, infuriates Kay. When his sophisticated wife Helen shows up unexpectedly, Kay is outraged by the betrayal of both men and returns to Paris. Berk is waiting at the hotel for her. Having had no response from his cables, he became suspicious when he discovered she was traveling with two men. George and Gene, whose wife had agreed to a divorce, follow Kay to Paris, and all three men vie for her affection. After dismissing Berk and Gene because the first does not trust her and the second is untrustworthy, Kay chooses George, who overcomes his reserved demeanor. They marry and sail for New York, while Berk and Gene plot an overthrow.
