Tonight is the premiere of “About Face” on HBO. The film provides an insightful overview of the evolution of modeling since the 1940s.
Modeling is about beauty and perceptions of beauty. During the 1980s, especially, we were bombarded with images of women who society felt displayed the high standard of beauty. Given that the images of models have become so ubiquitous and that models have become public figures, it is important to consider implications. Specifically, how has the evolution of the modeling industry impacted young people?
Picture perfect seeks to answer this question. Make sure to watch it before or after (or instead of) About Face.
