Arlete is a naive teenager who always wanted to be a top model. After her parents‘ divorce she moves to bustling São Paulo with her conservative mother and grandmother. When a financial crisis hits them, Arlete finds in her dream a chance to give her family a better life.
Soon the ambitious businesswoman Fanny falls for Arlete‘s looks and invites her to work for her fashion agency. In this new universe, Arlete receives a complete makeover, changing not only her image but her name as well: now she will be known as Angel. But behind the catwalk‘s glamour there is a prostitution scheme controlled by the immoral Fanny that will change forever the new top model‘s life: the pink book.
Among the huge list of women that are part of the pink book is Larissa. She is an experienced top model who had her share of success in the catwalks but who also got into prostitution to support her family and ends up abusing drugs. Fanny‘s right hand in this scheme is the selfish Anthony, her partner in business as well as her lover.
In the beginning, Angel is reluctant about being part of the pink book, but then is forced to do it to pay her family‘s debts. Her first date is with the powerful businessman Alex who becomes instantly obsessed with the girl. Believing Alex‘s love is true, Angel allows herself to become involved in his seduction games and violates the most important rule in prostitution: to never fall in love with a client.
After realizing the relationship would have no future, Angel decides to end it. Even after she starts dating Gui, Alex‘s nephew, her heart is still divided. But a man who uses his money to get everything he wants wouldn't settle for less. To be near Angel he marries Carolina, who has no idea of her new husband‘s involvement with her own daughter.
