When Whitney Port moved to New York City she quickly found that she had it all: the job, the friends, the boyfriend, the apartment. But in New York, things change overnight. Now Whitney is taking a chance on her dream of becoming a designer, under the critical eye of Kelly Cutrone. She's single, dating, and settling into a new place in NYC's West Village, but an old friend from Los Angeles is about to show up, looking for a job, a place to crash, and a life just like Whitney's. Meanwhile, Olivia Palermo has wasted no time parlaying her promotion at Diane von Furstenberg to a new position at ELLE Magazine. But soon Olivia is partnered with a young, ambitious upstart who is determined to make sure that Olivia doesn't get a free ride on her name and social status alone. It's back to work for the girls of The City. New jobs, new boys, new friends, New York.
