Anthony J. Crowley is the best editorial fashion photographer in the biz, and has made Quality Magazine a national best-seller. When the magazine decides to close, he needs one last Big Idea to send the publication out with a bang. But where will he find a model willing to help recreate several centuries worth of fashion in only one week?
Aziraphale Z. Fell owns a bookshop, and has never looked at a fashion magazine in his life. He wants nothing more than to meet his philosophical celebrity idol, Gabriel, who has published a series of books about becoming a better person through empathy. But he can't just jet off to Pairs whenever he likes. Or can he?
Crowley makes him an offer: One week of modeling in exchange for a free trip to Pairs. Aziraphale will have to put his assumptions about modeling aside, and Crowley will have to learn to be more empathetic if they're going to work together and, just maybe, fall in love.
This is Funny Face but with Crowley as Fred Astaire and Aziraphale as Audrey Hepburn. Because there's a bookshop, and I wanted them to kiss on the ladder. And I've been thinking about this for a solid year and it's my birthday present to myself.
Sean is a fashion photographer, Elijah works in a book shop. Never the twain shall meet? Not so!
