About Face Supermodels Then and Now
world is intrigued by supermodels. There is no denying that. In About
Face: Supermodels Then and Now, we get a behind the scenes look at
the world of modelling from the people who know it best, past
supermodels. The women who used to (and sometimes still do) grace dozens
of magazine covers each tell their own tale about how they came to land
in their profession and their journey through the years in the changing
face of the profession and the new world of drugs and alcohol. They also
face the inevitable question of what happens when old age sneaks in?
Some of the supermodels who feature in About Face are Jerry Hall,
Isabella Rossellini, Christie Brinkley, Paulina Porizkova, Christy
Turlington and Beverly Johnson.
one thing that strikes you about About Face is that at 78
minutes, it is very quick. Yes, a lot is covered in that 78 minutes.
However a lot is covered very quickly meaning that the topics are not
covered in great detail. They seemed to be skimmed across at lightening
pace in order to get as many topics as possible in.
it is intriguing to hear these women whom the world is obsessed with
speak from their own experiences. The short documentary itself does
actually seem quite bland. There is not much more to it than the women
just speaking of their experiences with the accompaniment of old
photographs and some old video footage. Sure it is interesting, but
there isnít anything which one would consider completely and utterly
shocking and things we would never have heard of if we just opened a
book on or read an article on one of these models.
DVD special features consist of outtakes and a supermodel portrait
gallery. The outtakes are worth watching just to have a bit of a giggle
at and see the characters behind the faces.
About Face: Supermodels Then and Now will be a bit of a treat for
those who love fashion and follow the world of modelling. If this holds
no interest to you, then you will find the documentary dull and 78
minutes may seem longer. However, there are still some very pretty faces
