Am I staring?

A little.

Sorry.

You just have

such beautiful

skin.

I'm Ruby,

by the way.

Do you have

a name,

or you want

me to guess?

Jesse.

Jesse.

And you just got

to la, Jesse?

How did you know?

You've got

that look.

Oh, don't

worry, honey.

That whole

deer-in-the-headlights thing

is exactly what they want.

Here. Let me

help you with that.

Are you a model?

No, I do makeup.

So, where are

you staying?

At a motel

in Pasadena.

By yourself?

Mmm-hmm.

What do your parents

think about that?

They don't really.

Don't think,

or just don't care?

They're not

around anymore.

I'm sorry.

Hey, you wanna

go somewhere?

Where?

A party.

What kind of party?

The fun kind.

God, I love

this color on me.

Red rum.

What?

That's what

it's called.

They say women

are more likely

to buy a lipstick

if it's named

after food or sex.

Just think

about it.

Black

honey.

Plum passion.

Peachy keen.

Pink pussy.

What about you, Sarah,

what would your

lipstick be called?

F*ck off.

Apt.

What about

you?

What about me?

Are you food

or are you sex?

She's dessert

because she's so sweet.

Hmm.

Shouldn't we get

back to the party?

Don't talk.

Still.

So what do

we think?

I think that

i wish I had

your hair.

Is this your

natural color?

You are just

so beautiful.

Don't you think that

she's just perfect?

Is that your

real nose?

Yeah.

God, life is

so unfair.

Gigi just got out

of the body shop.

She's still

a little sensitive.

You had work done?

You say that like

it's a bad thing.

Sweet, plastics is

just good grooming.

Imagine going

a year without

brushing your teeth.

I go to this guy

in Beverly hills.

- Andrew.

- Dr. Andrew.

She is in love with him.

Of course I love him.

Look at me.

He calls me

the bionic woman.

Is that a compliment?

I hear your parents

are dead.

That must be

really hard for you.

Do you have

other family?

No.

No one at all?

You must have

a boyfriend.

All she really

wants to know is,

who are you f*cking?

Sorry?

What?

Isn't that

what everyone

wants to know?

A pretty new girl

walks into a room,

everyone's head turns,

looks her up and down,

wondering,

"who is she f*cking?

"Who could she f*ck?

"And how high can she climb,

and is it higher than me?"

I don't...

I don't know.

I just got to town,

so I don't know

anybody here.

Right. But you've

slept with men before.

You do sleep

with men, don't you?

All the time.

I think I will get

back to the party.

Someone said there

was gonna be a show.

Jesse,

are you coming?

Who did

you say shot these?

A boyfriend?

Not really.

Not really or no?

No.

It was just some guy,

he found me online.

Be careful with that.

You're very fit.

Thank you.

You're also

very young.

I think you're perfect.

I would never

say you're fat.

But that doesn't mean

that someone else won't.

Understand?

I see 20 or 30 girls

come in here every day.

Mostly from small towns

with big dreams

because some guy named Chad

in the food court told them

they were beautiful

enough to be a model.

And they're all good.

You...

You're going to be great.

Some girls crack

under the pressure,

but if you do okay,

then we are off

to New York.

You'll work with

all the top designers.

International

success.

So the first thing

we need to do

is get you some pictures

that are a little less

amateur hour,

no offence.

Jack MacArthur is in town.

Do you know him?

No.

Get to know him.

I had to pull

some strings,

but I sent him

your polaroids,

and he has agreed to

do a test with you.

How does that sound?
