Synopsis

All Yasmin, Cloe, Sasha, and Jade can think about is the prom… until they get a last-minute homework assignment on self-expression. How will they get ready for the funky formal AND turn in a kickin’ cool project? Leave it to The Girls with a Passion for Fashion to “express themselves” with a scorchin’ home video about their superstylin’ prom prep… even as a secret gossip columnist begins to attack the pack in the school paper! But with a lil’ hard work and some far-out flash ‘n’ dash, the girls just might create a high-fashion hit—and save the prom!

Plot

Just as prom night was approaching, their art teacher, Mr. Del Rio, decided to assign them to a project where they have to express themselves. Asked by the girls to give them extra time for the project, the professor denied the girls' petition, thus presenting them with a dilemma: Get prepared for prom night or make a project that will count for 25% of their yearly grade.

The girls eventually get the idea to borrow a school video camera to shoot a video showcasing all their creative sides together and explaining their respective POVs about the types of art they all enjoy.

A relaxing day at the beach seems only to stress out Sasha, who has volunteered to be the head of the school's prom committee. Problems begin to arise when Sasha is insulted in the school's newspaper column "Daily Doings," which had a reputation of being the paper's most boring column. The girls automatically blame the boys, Cameron and Dylan, for telling the "Daily Doings" writer about the girls' conversation at the beach previously. This is also after Cloe crashes her car, and Cameron, an expert mechanic, comes to fix it.

When the girls go shopping for prom outfits, Jade begins to doubt her sense of fashion when she picks out an outrageous outfit the others disapprove of. More gossip appears in the paper, and it's an article about Jade. The girls figure it was not the boys because there's no way they could've heard about Jade's meltdown at the mall. So, at Cloe's sleepover, things seem to be getting back to normal for the girls, as they apologize to Cameron after he told Cloe about the repairs and give him a makeover he'll never forget. Later on that night, Jade accidentally leaves the video camera on and someone can seem walking around the room writing in a notepad.

At school, everyone is going crazy over the picture of Cameron after the makeover the girls gave him. He blames Cloe for his embarrassing photo, telling her to pick up her car because he's not going to the prom.

Tension rises between the girls as they try to figure out which one of them has been betraying their secrets to the whole school. Yasmin eventually confesses that she was the one writing the columns in the school newspaper—Cloe, Sasha, and Jade get mad at Yasmin for betraying them and start giving her the cold shoulder. But while Cloe, Sasha, and Jade try forgetting about Yasmin by going to the spa, they realize that they feel weird doing this without her—also, the other girls realize that, in a way, they kind of brought the whole situation on themselves, since they were the ones who ultimately gave the idea of writing those stories since they kept complaining about the previous stories being so boring and that there should be more "interesting" stories being written in the school paper.

Eventually, the girls confront each other—Yasmin apologizes to Cloe, Sasha, and Jade for what she did, admitting that the reason she did it in the first place was that they, and others, kept complaining that the stories that were originally being written were boring and that she wanted to write more "interesting" stories so she'd feel more important. Cloe, Sasha, and Jade accept Yasmin's apology and also apologize for how they acted. Yasmin eventually explains the situation to Cameron, who also forgives Yasmin for what she did.

Despite having patched things up, another series of problems arise once prom night rolls around:

  1. The photographer hired for the dance quit at the last minute to become a painter instead.
  2. The DJ hired to perform the music for prom was forced to back out due to getting sick with the flu at the last minute.
  3. The caterers hired to make the food for the dance were unable to arrive on time due to a traffic jam.

Just when all hope seems lost, the girls come up with the idea for a "do-it-yourself" prom, with each of the girls getting the opportunity to put their artistic skills on display: they solved the latest problems by making a disco ball work, setting up balloons everywhere, using their video camera to take digital pictures, preparing their own food, playing their own music, and turning an empty room into a "stylin'" dance hall.

After showing their video (which includes the prom night dance) to their art teacher, he's impressed enough by the video to give each of the girls an A+ on the project.
