Having survived the loneliness of an orphaned childhood, Brooke Taylor (Kaley Cuoco) has always dreamed of being a top fashion designer, and her dream at last may be fulfilled when she is accepted at America's top fashion school. Then, suddenly, Brooke's life goes in an entirely another direction when her grandfather, a mob boss, passes away. Showing up at Brooke's doorstep is grandpa's second-in-command George (played by The Sopranos' Dominic Chianese), who insists that the girl assume command of the "family business." The fact that George's organization is attempting to go legit means nothing to the Feds, who are determined to jail Brooke and the rest of her associates on a racketeering rap. Meanwhile, Brooke makes the acquaintance of Jack Lawton (Pat Kelly), a shy, bumbling fellow student--and secret FBI operative. Adroitly combining crime and fashion (hence its title), this satirical cable-TV movie made its first appearance on July 25, 2004 over the ABC Family Channel.
