Sixteen-year-old Axelle is furious at being sent to stay with her fashion editor aunt for Paris Fashion Week. She may have incredibly long legs, but all Axelle wants to do is solve mysteries, and is far more likely to be found nose down in a Nancy Drew than wiggling her foot into a Jimmy Choo. But when top fashion designer – Belle La Lune – vanishes into thin air, Axelle seizes the chance to go undercover as a model to solve the mystery.

Thrust into the frenetic, eyelash-curling and sequin-encrusted backstage world of fashion, Axelle is swept up in a whirlwind of castings, shows and photo shoots as she starts to unravel the mys- tery behind Belle’s disappearance.   Aided by London’s most stunning supermodel and Sebas- tian, the very gorgeous and thoroughly distracting son of Paris’s bumbling Chief Inspector, Axelle races against the clock (and the arrival of her mother on Eurostar) to solve the mystery at the heart of Paris Fashion Week…

NANCY DREW meets THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA in this pacey and funny contemporary teen novel set in the glam- orous and fascinating world of international fashion.
