Material Girl s01e04 Episode Script

Episode 4

OK.
I think I'm almost there.
Fashion Week, here we come.
OK With? Or without? With, without? Definitely without.
But it's my lucky pulling hat.
Pulling what? Chicken? Fashion hasn't taught you anything.
Can't believe you want to be a model.
Where's Ali when I need her? DOOR OPENS She heard! My fairy godmother Oh! Lucky pulling hat! Someone going out tonight? Hey, babe.
Er, Orlando! Oh.
Well? With? Or without? BUZZER Oh, my God! I'm not ready, I'm not ready! Chris'll go, won't you? Alex, are you sure about this? The hat? No.
Orlando.
Don't start.
Hiyou look great! Thanks.
Hi.
Hi.
Shall we go? You're not wearing that, are you? God, no! It's Chris's.
So, what we drinking to? My first collection.
That's fantastic! Thank you.
Where to, tonight? I was thinking a DVD, takeaway? I've got two castings tomorrow morning and I've got to give these two bad boys a fighting chance.
I'm starting to puff What?! Oh, God, you wuss! What did you call me? A wuss! Say it to my face! Shall we hit the mini-bar? I'll take that as a no, then.
No, no, no, no Don't phunk with my heart I wonder if I take you home Would you still be in love baby? In love baby? I wonder if I take you home Would you still be in love baby? BREAKING AND SKIDDING Right, that's it.
Get out.
No drinks in the cab.
You smell like yesterday's kebab.
Killjoy! Idiot! Where the hell are we, anyway? I need a slash.
Don't mind me! These are Gucci couture, I'm not peeing on these for anyone.
Ali's studio's round the corner.
I know how to get in.
Easy.
Easy.
Loo's there.
I'm just popping to the kitchen.
Look at this collection.
It's fabulous.
Davina would kill to have something like this.
Look, I know she's giving you a hard time, but it's just power games.
You are a fashion god and don't you forget it.
She's not buying my designs, though, is she? Ten days to Fashion Week and we're nowhere.
Whereas, these guys Stop worrying.
Davina's still in Tokyo, picking tofu out of her miso soup.
And you need to chill out.
Try it on.
No way! Go on.
I can't Can I? Do you have to go? It's still early.
You know I would stay if I could.
You can come to mine next time.
I'll cook you dinner.
Enjoy yourself tonight.
Call room service.
It's on me.
Oh, I almost forgot.
It's for you.
Anthony, you shouldn't.
I know.
See you tomorrow.
Fierce, darling.
Fierce.
Milan eyes, Milan.
Oh, yes, you're in Paris darling, you're in Paris.
Another drink.
Oh! Ugh! Don't panic Don't panic.
Ali's collection.
What were we thinking? Get the booze up.
We can sort this out later.
We can take them to Davina's, get them steam pressed.
We can have them back before morning.
I know a guy who's tough but sweet He's so fine he can't be beat He's got a little thing that I desire Sets the summer sun on fire I want candy I want candy Talk about a steamy night out! You forgot a bit.
I know! I'm coming back to that bit.
Oh, the boy's good! Ever thought about being a professional? This is all your fault, anyway.
How will I ever make amends? I want candy I want candy Someone has cleaned us out.
How many pieces? I don't know.
Enough.
Oh, my God.
All that work! All that money.
Whoa.
What's happened? Smells like an English pub.
Someone has stolen the collection.
I'll have to remake all the dresses.
The same designs? Yeah.
Ali, don't be ridiculous.
If someone got hold of those designs, they're damaged goods.
There could be a web site selling rip-off Ali Redcliffe.
We can't use them.
What am I supposed to do? Fill in the gaps with some other designs.
In case you hadn't noticed, I was trying to tell a story with this collection.
I can't just shove anything in.
It's not going to make any sense.
So you just going to start over again? No.
I don't know! I'm going to call the cops.
If I get my hands on whoever has done this I will castrate them with my pinking shears.
What the hell is going on? Davina? I thought you weren't back until Since when did my studio become a cheap hotel for assignations? We were working and fell asleep, it was simple.
Oh.
Well, show me this "work".
Hopeless Feeble Embarrassing.
I think it's about time we had a full and frank discussion about your future, Orlando.
Hang on what are these? It's, er They're Oh Interesting.
Oh, yes, this is better.
This could be your right to remain.
But Davina You know, I like it.
It's spot on.
Even the colour It's so"me".
How did you come up with this? It WAS your idea? It's a Russian theme Um, snow Vodka.
Troikas and samovars Love it.
You two make a good team.
I should let you misbehave more often.
But this, with this, we can start building the collection.
I want to be forgotten And I don't want to be reminded You say please don't make this harder Gone.
Seven pieces.
Two show-stoppers.
Stay calm, Ali.
We've got to keep focused.
Controlling what we can control.
I like your 12-step philosophy.
I didn't know you had a drinking problem? I don't, but how else is a girl to find friends in this dark and lonely city? Didn't Galliano make a collection using just black bin liners? Black lining material.
And he had 15 days.
I've got ten! Nine.
What? We've got a photo shoot booked for tomorrow, plus a preview of the collection.
Both will take days out, so Actually, it's more like seven.
Well, we've got to cancel, surely? The shoot is for New Generation designers.
You need to be in that.
Adapt one of the existing dresses.
The preview was a favour from the magazine's editor that most designers would kill for.
BUZZER So no, if we're still aiming to show, I'm not cancelling anything.
If you need inspiration, why don't you call Lydia? She'll model for you.
OK, yeah, I will.
Remember, it's not over till the size 16 lady sings.
It's a fashion house.
Size ten is enough.
Er, Marco? It's the police.
Ooh, this is nice.
Loving it, darling.
Loving it.
Thanks, Davina.
It's really nice of you.
I think we should see if we can organise a little preview.
Show them Davina Bailey's still in the game.
We've got to tell her.
We can't.
We're up to our arses in this.
What's Ali going to say? We can't show HER designs! If you tell Davina, we are out of a job.
And we are never coming back from this.
PHONE RINGS It's Ali Oh, God, I feel sick.
Answer it.
I can't.
You have to.
Hi, Ali, how are you? Someone's stolen my collection.
Oh, no.
That's terrible.
What, everything? The sink? How disgusting.
What kind of a loser would do a thing like that? The police are here.
The police? Well, it's too late.
Anyway, I can't use any of the original designs.
I've got to come up with a whole new batch.
Ali, I'm sorry We could be buggered.
Speaking of which You didn't come home last night.
What happened? Ali, I've got to go.
Davina's back and she's on the warpath.
Love you! I am going to look awful in prison fatigues.
DOOR OPENS Hey.
Honey, I dropped everything.
What is this all about a break-in? It's true.
Right.
I can be your dress-up doll for two hours.
Then I've got to go.
I've got a preview shoot for Oscar Pay My Renta.
Oh, God, is he still showing? Does Dolly Parton sleep on her back? Of course he is.
The man's an institution.
It takes more than a free bus pass to keep a good designer down.
Oh, this is beyond bad.
PHONE RINGS Meems Is that Lydia Kane? Oh, my God.
Oh, Ali, that's awful How much did they take? Oh, God.
That's terrible! What, tonight? I'm not sure, I've got a lot on at work.
I'll have to see.
INAUDIBLE Ali, I'm really sorry, I must dash, I've got a meeting.
Can I call you back? OK, catch you later.
Bye.
Everything all right, Throckmorton? You look like you've seen a ghost.
Er, no It's a friend of mine's just been burgled, that's all.
Oh, dear, how miserable.
Was that Jed Nicholls? Yes, yes, the rising star.
Do you know him? A friend of mine went out with him.
A friend of yours? Same one that was burgled.
He dumped her across the Atlantic.
Just as she was about to get on her flight.
Ouch.
Aren't men dreadful? I've got half an hour.
I'll show you how we improve with age.
Can you make it out to Russell, please? Thanks.
We'll be in touch.
And do think about that Neighbourhood Watch Scheme, won't you? CSI, eat your heart out.
Pointless.
All they said was there was no sign of an actual break-in.
Meaning? Meaning whoever it was used the front door, which means they knew the code.
So, I need to ask Dorota, where were you last night? Is it because I'm Polish, you accuse me? At home.
Watching National Lottery.
What else? On your own? Always on my own.
Trish? At that new pop-up bar in Shoreditch.
That what? Pop-up.
You know, where they take over a space and they kind of make it.
.
OK Ali? Marco?! Well, then who else knows the code? Don't look at me.
Alex could probably work it out, but How come? He knows what I use for everything else.
I don't believe it! Hang on! Alex wouldn't trash the place.
And why would he take my designs? We live together.
He's my best friend.
He also works for Davina.
Oh, look, I don't know what's going on between you and Davina, but Marco, you are seriously paranoid.
It's not me she's gunning for.
It's you.
Alex wouldn't do that.
He just wouldn't.
Not in a million years.
Do you know where he was last night? Yes.
And it wasn't here.
Fine.
Let's move on.
PHONE RINGS Alex, darling? Hurry up! I'm feeling it! Oh I like that.
Been jogging? We should put a shower in reception.
Can you deal with these? As soon as, please.
You'll never be a stylist, Mimi Throckmorten.
Hey.
Can you meet me for a coffee? I'm just running late for a casting.
Why don't you meet me there? It's a shop opening on, um.
.
wait a minute 19 Savile Row.
Cool.
I'll see you there.
I don't get how one night out with YOU could end up such a disaster.
Was it such a disaster? PHONE RINGS It's Mimi.
Hi, there.
Have you heard? About? Jed Nicholls is back.
What? He's opening his own shop.
On Savile Row.
Well, do we tell her? No way! She'll implode.
She'll totally lose it.
She's got enough on her plate.
I heard.
What did you hear? No, you're right, it's the last thing Ali needs.
It took her two years to get over Jed.
Girlfriend, you ask me, she NEVER got over him.
But what if she finds out? Well, we took a few of them.
Do you like them? Hey sexy.
Hey! I'll catch you later.
What's up? I'll tell you outside.
All right.
I'll just go get my clothes.
Ali? I don't believe it.
What are you doing here? What are YOU doing here? This is my shop.
Here? In London? Yeah.
Yeah.
Right What's happening? How's life? Must be good, you look amazing.
Thank you.
Um How's work? How are things with your mum? Fine.
Yeah.
I'm I'm going to go.
You sure? It'd be so nice to catch up.
What's happening? Hi.
Thanks for coming, um Chris.
Chris.
Yes.
We have your number.
I'm sure we'll give you a call.
I'm going to wait outside.
Yeah, thanks.
Hold on! Hey, what's the matter? How do you know Jed Nicholls? Just from somewhere.
I don't remember.
What's got into you? Nothing's got into me.
Hey, hey, hey I was just trying to get work, there.
You walk in and act all weird, it's embarrassing.
Well, I'm sorry I embarrassed you(!) I just thought you might be a bit more supportive.
Like a boyfriend, instead of a prancing doll! A what? Where are you going? I've got to get back.
Hey I thought you said you were coming to town so you could talk to me? Yeah.
I don't think I've got time.
Ali What's happening? Would you just talk to me?! The collection's been stolen so I've got to come up with a load of new designs.
Oh, my God Exactly.
So I've got to get back.
Well, er I'll give you a call later then.
PHONE RINGS Ali? Hi Jed Nicholls is back.
Jed! Yep.
Oh, no Can you meet me at the coffee shop? Of course.
I'll see you there.
Bye.
I'm popping out.
Ali needs me.
Oh, he treats me with respect, says he loves me all the time He calls me 15 times a day, he likes to make sure that I'm fine.
You know I've never met a man that's made me feel quite so secure He's not like all them other boys, all so dumb and immature If it was me, I'd have set light to his fake tan.
That's what he deserves.
Wasn't looking so fake, actually.
Oh, no don't start thinking like that.
What? He wasn't even faithful.
I never knew that for sure.
I lived with you both for three weeks, remember? I sussed it out.
I'm not blind.
You slept on the sofa! Until that arse-hole kicked me out.
You were very high maintenance.
I was not! Jed and I had great times in that flat.
It was only when he took off for New York that it really It wasn't just that, Ali.
He was a complete bastard to you.
I wish he'd never come back.
This had better be quick.
To what do I owe the distraction? It's a little awkward, actually.
Someone tried to break-in to Ali's studio last night.
Luckily, they didn't succeed.
They just left a mess.
Nothing was taken.
So? It was probably local kids.
I do hope this is going to get better, Marco, I'm bored to tears so far.
It was kids.
Right? What are you suggesting? I've learned not to put anything past you.
I'm a 35-year-old woman with a £40 million business to run.
Quite apart from the fact that I have never done anything illegal in my life, and certainly wouldn't squander my reputation trashing Ali's tatty little studio as you can see, I'm far too busy with my own utterly brilliant collection even to think of it.
I was just asking the question.
And if you ask again, I'll do you for slander.
Now get out, before I have you thrown out.
That thing you said about never having done anything illegal.
I know it was a long time ago, but I still rememberdon't you? Would you get out?! You just get a grip, my girl.
Don't let that two-timing bastard knock you off your perch again.
You've got Chris to think about now.
Any wobbles, call me.
PHONE RINGS Hello.
I'm just leaving Davina's.
Your designs are there.
I saw them.
No question.
There's only one way they could have got there.
What do you mean? I'm sorry, Ali.
The funny thing is, I don't even think Davina knows anything about it.
Right Thanks Come back to the studio.
I'll tell you what I think we should do.
You bastard.
Ali, I'm sorry, we didn't mean to How can you "not mean" to take my designs? I knew Orlando was bad news, but I never thought thatYOU You?! It was a mistakewe were messing about.
Oh, God.
I bet you were! I've just got myself into a bit of a situation.
Ali, listen My first collection, Alex! Just to impress Orlando! I want you out of the flat.
Today.
I do not want you there when I get back.
I don't want anything that reminds me of you.
Ali, please! Where you going? Know any good hotels? Not too expensive? I may be out of a job tomorrow.
Alex, why don't you stay with me? I don't think that would be a very good idea right now.
ANSWERPHONE: 'I don't know where you are, Ali, I hope you're all right.
'Just call me.
'I'm at the gym, but the phone's on, so 'give me a call.
'I Love you.
' I better go, it's a busy day, we have a photo shoot.
Thank you for your concern.
Well, that didn't take long.
Someone's been telling the Fashion Council we've had our entire collection stolen.
Well, who would do that? You have to ask? Great.
Let's get started.
You want a coffee? Oh, guys.
I'm sorry.
I can't do the shoot.
Davina called and asked me to do fittings first thing this morning.
I know I told her to bog off.
But apparently she's got first refusal.
The agency just confirmed.
Ali, if they could make a wreath saying "sorry" without it looking like an apology for a gangland hit, I'd have bought it, believe me.
I'm a bad friend.
No, you're not.
It's all right.
I'm going to get my own back.
I'm drinking a lot of coffee and planning to wet myself in her show-stopper.
Lydiayou didn't happen to mention the stolen dresses to Davina, by any chance? I told her nothing was taken.
Er I'm sorry.
At this rate, I'm going to have to put my florist on speed dial.
Sorry! Great.
So now we really DO have to cancel.
No, we don't.
Marco, we haven't got a model.
We've got an hour.
It's tight, but it's do-able.
But all the clothes are fitted for Lydia.
You keep designing, leave the shoot to me.
We'll find another model.
It's fine.
SOBBING Lourdes! Are you OK? Lourdes, come out now, please.
'She's being horrible to me!' SHE MOUTHS Right, Lourdes.
That's it.
SOBBING CONTINUES Get your skinny arse out here or I'm calling your agent! Well, THAT worked(!) Oh, I know! Has anyone got any cash? For the shop.
Choccie, Lourdes? Right, so I was saying to make-up that it's all about lips.
A red lip, say Curly, ice-cream hair, think asymmetric poodle.
And eyebrows, which are, obviously, big this season.
Huge and hairy.
Think Selma, think Madonna, think brow.
God I can see you're channelling Frida Kahlo.
Good.
So on trend! It's Plum.
She comes to us highly recommended.
Oh, great.
So my shoot is being styled by a fruit.
For God's sake can you stand up straight, please? Thank you.
Owww!! What did I do? They've sent us a schoolgirl.
There's got to be something you can do.
Ali! Mimi.
What are you doing here? I've been trying to get hold of you.
I didn't get your messages till this morning.
Thank you.
I was out last night.
Must have been a late one.
What is that? Marco has got me a stylist who hasn't got a clue.
Just what I wanted.
There! Oh, my God.
Ali may I? Yeah.
Everybody knows us We're always, we're inside Everyone who meets us Wants to join our gang We know how to swing our thing We know where the in-crowd hangs We're the guys to see you right If you want to set the night alight Hey, everybody One, two, one, two, three, four! Go-go, Meems.
Meems, that was absolutely fantastic.
You completely turned that around.
Oh, I loved every minute.
This sandwich is definitely on me.
Sorry, what was that? I said I was going to buy you lunch.
Oh I can't.
I've got to get back to work.
Oh, you seem keen for someone who had such a late night.
What? Mimi.
I know you too well.
What's his name? Is he good enough for you? It's justsomeone at work.
Someone at work? There is no-one at work.
They're all girlsor gay.
Not Anthony Chatsworth? I was going to tell you.
I promise.
Mimi, he's your boss! It's OK.
And he's married! No, his marriage is over.
He's told me all about it.
Yeah, I'm sure he has.
It's fine.
It's fun.
And you know, it's nice being in love.
Well, just be careful, OK? Well, you too.
Does Chris know about Jed? No.
Right.
Don't blow it with him just because your ex is back in town.
I'll see you later.
See you later.
Good luck with the collection.
Thank you.
Taxi.
And while the city sleeps I won't weep because I couldn't keep My boyfriend, and the summer's end is here again PHONE RINGS Under the grand silver birch tree While we're thinking 'bout the people we meet Dancing feet, wasters on the cover of a magazine People you've kissed, people you lust And the ones that you might not Ahhh! I was just passing and I Again? No, actually, I thought I'd come back because I thought maybe I wasn't very friendly before and it's just that it's such a surprise to see you.

Ali, what are you doing here? Not talking to you.
I just don't want to see you get hurt.
Oh, really? You don't? Oh, look.
Your boyfriend's waiting.
I hope he's worth it.
He's not my Nothing's worth losing you.
Please forgive me, Ali.
Ali.
Hi.
I'm so glad you came.
Wow.
You look great.
Thank you.
Wow! You've conquered New York and now you're back to show us all how it's done! It's nice to see that it was all worth it.
Definitely.
Maybe.
Yeah You know I sometimes think about how it could have been.
If it had worked.
Sorry.
If what would have worked? You and me.
You were the one, Jed The one that got away.
What? I said you were the one that got away.
Ali, that's so sweet.
You were quite smitten, weren't you? We did have fun, didn't we? Fun? Absolutely, great fun.
You'll meet Mr Right, I'm sure.
Jed! There's someone I'd like you to meet.
Um Sorry.
I have to do this.
I'll catch you later.
How is the Artful Dodger? I didn't mean to steal the designs.
I'm sorry.
In too deep, are you? Between a rock and a hard place.
And I've lost my best friend.
I suppose you can't wait to pull the plug on us after Fashion Week? Watch us both go down together.
You could always pull it on yourself.
Professional suicide? You're right.
What choice do I have? Mimi? I don't know if I should even be talking to you.
Please I'm in hell.
What are you laughing at? Nothing.
Just boy's talk.
Were you laughing at me? No, why would we be laughing at you? Maybe you've been telling him how funny it was when you dumped me? What's that? You know.
How to handle Ali? I'm just a joke to you, aren't I? Hang on.
Hang on.
Hang on.
We're just water under the bridge now.
Water under the bridge, am I? I'll leave you to it.
She always was a fiery one.
Oh, you pig.
Get your hands off me.
What the hell is wrong with you? Are you OK, Jed?.
No! Oh, just let go.
Calm down.
You need some help? No, We're fine.
Just get off me.
Get off me, Chris.
Calm down.
Please just get your hands off me.
Listen to me.
Why am I always the last person to know what's going on with you? Huh? Tell me.
How come you didn't tell me he was your ex-boyfriend? Because it's none of your business! It is when you throw champagne over me in public.
Oh, I'm sorry, did I ruin your hair? Do you know what? I think it is my business.
Oh, I forgot.
Everything is your business! Sort yourself out, Ali.
Yeah? Change your heart Look around you Change your heart It will astound you I need your loving Like the sunshine And everybody's gotta learn sometime Everybody's gotta learn sometime SHE SOBS Everybody's gotta learn sometime Mm-mm-mm.
How can I lose a best mate and a boyfriend in the space of two days? Chris won't give up on you.
He's not returning my calls.
I've acted like an idiot.
I let Jed back under my skin.
Just a day was enough.
Look what happened! That's because you didn't let your fairy godmother stop you.
How is he? He's crying himself to sleep in a two-star hotel round the corner from the studio.
I spoke to him this morning.
Apparently he's already allergic to the sheets and the towels have given him hives.
Two star.
He'll hate that.
I bet he's wearing his socks so that his feet don't have to touch the floor.
Oh, God.
I really miss him, Meems.
The flat is so big and lonely without him.
Well, he's suffering too, Ali.
Look, it really was just an accident.
You've got to forgive him.
Look, isn't that Anthony? Sorry.
Mimi.
Meems! How could I be so stupid? You wanted a bit of fun and you want to be happy.
That's not stupid.
I feel like such a fool.
Well, you're not.
You are a fabulous and a talented, sexy lady.
You deserve better.
I am not sexy.
Yes, you are.
Chatsworth wants you, doesn't he? Look.
Don't take this lying down.
Fight back.
Make him want you more, and then tell him that he can't have you.
I can't do that sort of thing.
You need a bit of attitude, girl.
We both do.
It wasn't one of her finer moments.
DOOR OPENS, FOOTSTEPS APPROACH How's your head? Dorota.
Can I ask you a favour? No.
It would make someone very happy.
What do I care about happiness? I have been miserable for 40 years.
A packet of fags? Two.
Done.
Can you make this up in a size 14? 14? Are we dressing real women now? It's for Mimi.
Why didn't you just say so? For her, I'll do anything.
Less than 24 hours to the preview, and you're wasting time on a dress for your friend? It's not a waste of time.
Mimi's given me an idea.
I know what's missing from the collection.
All that stuff I did before was too classic, too chic.
Attitude! That's what these designs need.
They need to fight back! OK, then.
Let'sfight back! Shut up and let me go This hurts, I tell you so For the last time you will kiss my lips Now shut up and let me go Your jeans were once so clean I bet you changed your wardrobe since we met You've done an amazing job.

Two packets of cigarettes will do.

Thanks.
Shut up and let me go This hurts, but I can't show For the last time you had me in bits Now shut up and let me go! For fear of living in regret I've changed this one when we first met Now oh, so easily you're over me Gone is love It's me that ought to be moving on You're not adorable I want something unignorable.
I ain't freakin' I ain't fakin' this I'm just going to have to call you back.
Is that all right? Mimi! What a very pleasant surprise.
You look stunning.
Coffee break? What are you doing? You might as well keep this for the next one.
Mimi? Hang on, honeypot, what's got into you? I'm resigning! Stuff you and stuff your poxy job.
I'll see you in another life! Oh, and by the way The Chatsworth special Over the desk? Needs a bit of work! PHONE RINGS Meems? Oh, chucked your job as well.
I don't know what happened.
It just sort of all came out.
Blimey.
I'll probably feel sick when wake up tomorrow, but for now, I just want to have fun.
Thank you so much for the dress.
You're welcome.
Oh, you should come to the preview tonight.
I wouldn't miss it.
I'll see you later.
Obviously one hell of a dress.
And this is going to be one hell of a collection.
There's just one more thing I've got to do It's time for the preview, the editor is on her way.
Five minutes, everyone! Psst! What's up? Oh, God.
How? If these are on the market already, Davina will have to pull them.
And we are off the hook! Yes, but she'll think we did it.
We can blame it on Marco! Don't you see? He's done this so we don't have to.
Look, Davina never needs to know these are Ali's dresses.
She'll still think they're yours, even if she has to pull them.
This way, you stay in credit.
But we can't tell her now.
Welcome, all, to Davina Bailey.
If you haven't got any champagne, help yourselves.
WOMAN SCREAMS SHE PANTS Any chance you could pop back tomorrow? I never rated Davina Bailey anyway.
Davina Failey.
Disastrous-maximus.
The smile on your face, baby Is not there any more, no And the thrill of your kiss, honey Is not like it was before I know you've been running around Yes, I know, oh, yeah You've got that look on your face, baby It's beginning to show, oh, yeah Might as well run on home Cos, baby, you've been gone too long There ain't no use in coming home Cos you got your girl gone Gone, oh, yeah You've been gone too long, ooh The way you used to hold me When we were all alone DOORBELL Is not there any more, baby It's OK.
I've taken out all the orange ones.
Have I come at a bad time? Don't worry, he will be frisked before leaving and he's allowed no access to alcohol whatsoever.
Best behaviour.
And I'm so sorry for all the trouble I caused.
See these fingers? Two collections in two weeks.
How can I ever make it up to you? I shall enjoy thinking of the ways.
DOOR BUZZES OK, everybody.
Look alive.
The editor is here.
Talullah! Welcome to Ali Redcliffe.
Darling.
Lovely to see you.
Please, have some champagne? Is it cold? As Anna Wintour's blood.
From the deep freeze, then.
May I introduce you to Ali Redcliffe? Hello.
The most exciting fashion find of the moment.
Mimi Throckmorton? And may I also introduce you to Mimi Throckmorton, our new house stylist.
We've just booked her.
She's an amazing talent and we're lucky to have her.
Please.
Check out the collection.
What the hell is she doing here? Marco, seriously? Well, after what Mimi did at the photo shoot, I couldn't think of anyone better.
But, um, can we afford it? I just sold a few designs online.
Welcome aboard.
Um, Ali Hey! I'm going to do an advert in the Cayman Islands.
It's for a pink cocktail that you drink out of a coconut.
It's just for a few days.
Wow.
But when I get back, I'm not going to get in touch.
I think, er, we should justlet it go.
I always feel like I'm just hanging on by a thread.
And I don't want that.
Chris, I So I should probably give you these back.
You never know, you might need them.
Yeah.
Good luck with everything, Ali.
Ali.
Sorry to interrupt you, but, er the editor is keen to share.
Wearable is the new fashion.
People don't want statements in a downturn.
You've got something here, Ali.
I'm reminded of a young Westwood, with a dash of early Ozbek.
It's sensational.
Congratulations! APPLAUSE Room for a tall one? Lydia! Wouldn't miss your first preview for anything.
A triumph.
To Ali! To Ali! Thank you.
Cheers.
Thanks.
It's everybody's hard work.
To us! It's Fashion Week, remember? You know - the show we've been working on for months.
We're on the catwalk at the same time.
How thrilled you must be.
It's my name that got you to this point and don't you ever forget it.
Let me call you back.
Mum! Oh, my gosh.
I can't believe you've come to see my fashion show.
OK, guys.
We're on.
It's time for me to make a move And I know what I got to do I don't think I've ever seen you with wet hair before.
Well, well.
What have we here? Even though you can be a right pain in the ass, sometimes you completely take my breath away.
Look, I was just trying to help out a friend.
It's not the end of the cocking world.
It was your decision not to stay in touch.
Why do you do this to her over and over again? It's called war and I'm going to win.
