Today, July 17th

ABOUT FACE: SUPERMODELS THEN AND NOW reunites fashion’s legendary models to reflect on their lives, careers and complex relationships with their physical appearance and the business of beauty. From our culture’s obsession with youth to substance abuse, self-esteem, race and even plastic surgery, this film explores beauty as a commodity, overnight stardom and the reinvention that can come with aging. The HBO documentary film reveals how a handful of extraordinary women defined and redefined beauty from the 1940s through the 1980s. Shot by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders in his intimate portrait style, the film features some of the all-time most celebrated visages of the 20th century: Carol Alt, Marisa Berenson, Karen Bjornson, Christie Brinkley, Pat Cleveland, Carmen Dell’Orefice, Jerry Hall, Bethann Hardison, Beverly Johnson, China Machado, Paulina Porizkova, Isabella Rossellini and Lisa Taylor.
