“About Face: The Supermodels, Then And Now” will air on HBO Monday July 30th
Jerry Hall, China Machado, Marisa Berenson and Lisa Taylor are but a handful of the runway legends who wax funny and dour by turns as they reminisce with Mr. Greenfield-Sanders, taking up the highly charged issues of racism, drug abuse, self-image and, perhaps most provocatively, the topic of age, fashion’s last and, arguably, most fearsome taboo.
The subject rivets the filmmaker, who was eager to explore, he said, “the power of beauty and fame, what that does to your ego, what it does to you when that fades.”NYTimes.com
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.
