The film entitled Drop Dead Gorgeous is centered on the adventures of a group of ladies. The film begins with a number of young ladies seriously preparing to take part in a beauty contest. Amber registers for the competition hoping that she will win and become rich and famous. She is also motivated by the fact that she wants to become successful like her mother.

Rebecca is another contestant but unlike Amber, she is from a very wealthy family as her father is the wealthiest man in the town. Her mother Gladys Leeman is the leader of the organizing committee of the beauty contest and a one time winner of the contest. Due to her business connections and attachments to other judges of the contest, many people in the audience suspect the results will be altered to her favor.

A few days before the contest the small town gets very busy as people come in from different areas to watch. The contestants meet every day so as to get familiar with the other contestants and judges. They also receive training on how they will be expected to walk, talk and act on that day as beauty queens; they also had dancing lessons and brief interviews.

However, things do not go well for most of the contestants as they prepare for the big day. Tammy dies in a car accident, Brett who is Rebecca’s lover is shot dead, Annette gets injured during an explosion at home.

On the day of the competition Amber’s costume disappears but a kind hearted contestant offers her costume to Amber. She finally performs and comes out in second position after Rebecca. Rebecca dies the next day after an accident and Amber is eventually crowned as the winner. At the end, Gladys confesses as being guilty of the death of Rebecca and Tammy all in her attempts to kill Amber.
