Four girls, four dilemmas, one mindset: fashion.
On the first day of her freshman year, Janie Farrish was already criticized, all because of her horrible acne. Now that all of it is gone, Janie wants everyone to see her new look as she enters her sophomore year. But the more she thinks about it, the more she feels like she is just trying too hard. With wanting to become just a tad bit popular, it doesn't help that her twin brother, Jake, is joining the in crowd, making his way toward Janie's enemy, Charlotte. At least she has her drawings to keep her mind off things. Even though she may not think that she is attractive, others do, especially the senior who just transferred back to Winston Prep, Evan.
Charlotte will always be the popular trendsetter. She can have any clothes she wants and any guy she wants. Unfortunately, trying to get Jake as her boyfriend is harder than she thought, mainly because she thinks Janie is in her way. The only way for her to get Jake is for Charlotte to play nice, which is easier said then done, since she is the one that gave Janie that terrible nickname, Pompidou.
Melissa Moon is ghetto fabulous. Being half Korean and half African-American, and the daughter of a very famous rapper, Melissa has one thing on her mind: starting her own industry. She wants to start it quick so it can be powerful and successful. And her main goal is for everyone to breathe Melissa Moon.
Petra Green is just naturally beautiful. All the stuff she does to make herself look ugly, from wearing mismatched clothes to having not-so-perfect hair; nothing keeps Petra from being gorgeous. It also doesn't help when her plastic surgeon dad uses Petra to try and get more customers, by claiming that she was all his doing. All Petra wants to do is take care of her adopted sisters, and survive her messed up home life.
All four girls propose their own special studies group, only to have them morph into one, whether they like it or not. Even though each girl is extremely different, they have one thing in common -- their passion for fashion.
Witty, artsy, and hilarious, POSEUR is a great start for this new series. Fashionistas look out because Janie, Charlotte, Melissa, and Petra are ready to conquer the fashion industry.
