This series which was initially a television movie about modelling. The character of Racine, the modelling agent, is there. As are the two young models, Taryn Blake, who has been modelling since she could walk and has a svengali for a mother,Julia, who sees her more as a meal ticket than as a daughter, and knows that the day is coming near when all of her daughters payments will go directly to her, and Laurie Caswell, the innocent, who doesn't really want to do it but is being pestered by Racine who sees her as the next hot commodity.

1980's glam and style with high class and drama!!
14 December 2018 | by canonxlsSee all my reviews

From Television Movie to TV Show. Paper Dolls is a great show with an amazing cast that was sadly cut short. Follow the life of modeling in the 1980's. throw in the shoulder pads and big hair and drama and this is "Paper Dolls!" If you like 80's fashion and drama then watch this show!

The show should have made it and never been taken off the air after only 13 episodes. The network left us all with a final cliffhanger episode just to add to the sting of canceling the show. Well worth the 13 episode watch however!
