Supermodel Polly Maggoo (Dorothy McGowan) is at the center of a whirlwind of publicity. As she discusses her life with a television crew, she embarks on flights of fancy that include a "Prince Charming" (Sami Frey), animated interludes, and aluminum-foil clothing. This satire on the fashion industry provides a glimpse into this world as viewed by writer-director William Klein, the photographer and filmmaker who introduced innovation into fashion.
