‘About Face’ Trailer: Supermodels on Aging and Plastic Surgery


Isabella Rossellini, Jerry Hall, Paulina Porizkova, Carmen Dell’Orefice—they’re women whose faces have become iconic in the decades that they’ve been models.

But HBO’s upcoming documentary, About Face, shows that even these iconic beauties aren’t so happy with the aging process.

“Of course it’s no fun getting old and sick and dying,” Hall says in the film’s recently released trailer. “We all know that’s coming, and it’s a bore.”

The movie, directed by photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, examines the way aging is treated in the fashion and entertainment industries—including the ubiquitous plastic surgery.

“If you had the ceiling falling down in your living room, would you not go and have a repair?” 80-year-old beauty Dell’Orefice—who’s been coy in the past about any cosmetic procedures she’s had done—said.

As for Rossellini, whose daughter Elettra Wiedemann models and is a fixture on the New York social scene, aging is akin to being phased out. “As you grow old, you don’t count anymore,” she said, laughing. “For sure my social status has diminished, because I know I’m not invited to the A parties anymore. My daughter is!”

About Face will debut at the Sundance Film Festival on January 22.
