TV Tonight: The Beautiful Life

The CW continues its onslaught of new shows with pretty young things in peril, tonight with the series premiere of The Beautiful Life, produced by Ashton Kutcher.

Who's the villain in this show? The big bad world of modeling. Mischa Barton plays Sonja, the runway veteran, but with a secret that's been keeping her out of the spotlight of late. Sara Paxton (who I've enjoyed in guilty pleasures like Sydney White) is Raina, the sweet and fresh 16-year-old who can't stop her journey to the top, even if it means toppling Sonja's career.

There's plenty of male eye candy too, like Midwesterner Chris, who's plucked from a family vacation in New York to do the Zoolander thing, and High School Musical's Corbin Bleu. Elle Macpherson also pops up as the agency head who runs a tight ship to round out the roster of beauty (check out the pretty pictures).


I'm hopeful that the CW can infuse some of its magic touch into The Beautiful Life, because the only example of a model drama I can think of is the short-lived '90s Models Inc. Can it be Gossip Girl on a catwalk? To see a clip from tonight's episode, just

I thought the pilot was shot before her "bloated" phase.

i was definitely excited to check out the show since there was so much talk about it and i wanted to see how MB looked but to be honest, i'm not sure that it's going to be a MUST watch for me. Mischa actually looked really good - not at all bloated like the recent pictures of her make you think....but other than that, well there's not too much substance going on to keep me involved. you figure out the drama behind 'Sonja' pretty quickly and that's about the biggest allure of the show right? oh well...maybe it'll get better.
