Funny, sexy, off-beat and fast-paced, Looks Perfect will knock your mental socks off, and maybe your actual socks as well. Rosemary McKinnon has a journalism grad's idea of a totally frivoulous job: at thirty-three, she's fashion editor of Panache, a high-profile Toronto women's magazine. While she's covering the ready-to-wear shows in Paris, London, and New York, the man of her dreams falls under her spell. But what is her spell? Certainly he's not interested in her mind — he hardly talks to her apart from their romps in bed, and even then it's shop-talk. When he dumps her to marry a pink-and-white (and very young) Englishwoman, Rosemary knows for sure: the attraction is her exotic appearance. Half-Vietnamese, half-French, she has been raised by her adoptive parents in the only way they know how — like a Rosedale girl. After hard manoeuvering, Rosemary's sister sets her up with Max Appelbaum, and it's Max who shows Rosemary, more-or-less against her will, how much appearances really count. Just in time, too, because Mr. Dreamboat's attraction turns out to be more complex than anyone — especially Rosemary — could have imagined.
