In today’s society where beauty equals youth, Timothy Greenfield-Sanders interviews a vast number of aging supermodels from the second half of the 20th century. Well-known faces such as Jerry Hall, Isabella Rossellini and Carmen Dell’Orefice tell their stories and share their experiences of the modeling industry. Their interviews are mixed with archive footage, illuminating what it was like to be a model coping with insecurities, drugs and the racism in the industry.
In this frank and openhearted documentary, not only the life of the models are examined, but also their intimate thoughts on subjects such as aging and feeling comfortable in your own skin. Greenfield-Sanders’ individual portrait of the subjects goes under the skin to examine how the models’ lives have changed over time, all the while examining the concept of beauty and the market’s fixation with youth.
