Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Victor Heerman wore two creative hats during the filming of Ladies Must Dress; not only did he direct the picture, but he also dreamed up the storyline. Virginia Valli stars as Eve, the plain-Jane secretary of George Ward Jr. (Lawrence Grey). Secretly in love with her boss, Eve can only sit on the sidelines and sigh as Joe squires one gorgeous socialite after another. The girl's worldly best friend Mazie (Nancy Carroll) suggests that Eve change her wardrobe and makeup if she ever wants to win her man. Sure enough, the caterpillar becomes a butterfly, and soon George Ward Jr. is vying with handsome office boy Joe (Lawrence Gray) for Eve's attentions. And yes, the heroine does remove her glasses to reveal her long-suppressed beauty!
