Former film editor Dorothy Arzner made her directorial debut with the Esther Ralston vehicle Fashions for Women. Ralston stars as Celeste de Givray, renowned throughout Europe as the most beautiful and best-dressed model in all Paris. Her press agent DuPont (Raymond Hatton) concocts an attention-getting publicity scheme by having Celeste undergo cosmetic surgery, then unveiling her "new" face at a posh fashion show. But thanks to a delay in the surgery, DuPont is forced to hired a substitute for Celeste, a look-alike American girl named Lulu Dooley (also played by Esther Ralston). The fun begins when Lulu, posing as Celeste, is paired up at a social occasion with aviator Raoul de Bercy (Einer Hansen), who is all too aware of Lulu's true identity.
