Synopsis

Céleste de Givray, whose social success is the result of the audacity of her press agent, Sam Dupont, is persuaded to retreat from public life and to have her face lifted. Lola Dauvry, a cigarette girl at the Café Pierre, who loves Raoul de Bercy, a former aviator, is hired by Sam to pose as the new Céleste in a fashion show while Raoul is hired as Céleste's private aviator. While Raoul is waiting for Lola at Céleste's apartment, the Duke of Arles, one of Céleste's sweethearts, arrives; in despair, Lola begs Sam to inform Raoul of her identity, but he refuses. At the fashion show, Céleste appears and declares Lola an impostor, but the latter is declared "the best dressed woman" by the judges. Raoul, realizing that Lola has been faithful, returns to her at the cafe and they are happily reunited.
