“About Face”…models, ageing, plastic surgery…it’s all there in the new documentary from HBO

This is a must see documentary which will be released in the summer of 2012 on HBO and at Sundance Festival in January! “About Face” features some of the most iconic faces in fashion talking about ageing in an industry that is obsessed with youth. The trailer contains some choice quotes including one from Paulina Porizkova who states, “modeling doesn’t have anything to do with self-confidence. Working off your looks makes you the opposite of self-confident.” While we are excited about watching such an amazing documentary, there does seem to be a great deal of sadness in this clip. Looking at women in the generation before ours and watching some age gracefully while others stay “frozen in time” with the help of skillful surgeons is a big wake up call for what comes next!
