Inspired by the phenomenal reporting of Jessica Pressler and brought to life as a limited series for Netflix by Shonda Rhimes, Inventing Anna follows Anna Delvey, a 25 year-old woman who posed as a German heiress and scammed her way into a world full of moneybags. In real life (and in the show), Delvey (neé Sorokin) runs up tabs at a gaggle of New York luxury hotels, including Le Parker Meridien, the W, and the Beekman. She also steals a whole ass jet at one point and angles for a cool $20M loan.

Anna Delvey (Julia Garner, building an enigmatic and unforgettable character) also wears the most shockingly gorgeous clothes and has excellent taste in art. (She was right; that Cindy Sherman photo was captivating.
