Charlotte, Tamara and Caprice are three rich young blondes with a most enviable inheritance. In this delightful film that follows their life in London's upmarket Chelsea, they freely express their thoughts and concerns. "Is seven grand a bit much for a dress ?", Charlotte wonders in Brown's, the fashionable Mayfair boutique ?. She tries it on anyway.
As she drives round central London in BMW, we learn of life's pleasures: buying new clothes ("the whole outfit, shoes") three or four times a month, and working because life got boring when she chose not to. But Charlotte felt this "is the normal life of a London girl, really".
For Tamara, work really consists of... being Tamara, the media babe. And then getting paid for it. With a luxury flat looking over Kensington Gardens, she needn't worry about traffic jams on the way in. Besides, we find work serves a purpose: it provides a topic of conversation in the evening for her circle.
Tamara's leisure activities seamlessly fuse with the 'day job' but together, they bring their own problems. She decides the working class "have less things to worry about, other than, like, getting the food on the table"" - but then they don't need to tell Prince Charles they've failed to sell his painting at a charity polo bash. Fortunately Caprice is always ready with a hilarious dirty joke.
It contrasts somewhat with her immaculate image as a professional model. Again, we hear of her wealthy background. Polo fields and the high life are what she "is accustomed to...born with". Or so she said...
After Daddy's Girls was a TV success in the UK, a rather different truth emerged: Caprice turned out to have a rather more humble background and was lying for the benefit of the camera. Almost as unexpectedly, she soon became a self-styled 'supermodel' and globally famous as a cover girl.
Whatever these deceptions, as our young ladies wander round Chelsea we learn a hard truth. Daddy's Girls was the first documentary to show a girl how you can become wealthy and famous through being on telly. But it also shows that the best way to enjoy the lifestyle it portrays is simply to be born beautiful and rich.
And that, as Tamara so rightly says, is "just sort of the luck of the draw".
