Model Sara Ziff used five years of her very successful modeling career to make a sort of film diary of her time on and off camera which she and her ex-boyfriend have since edited into a movie, Picture Me. It sounds very intriguing in some ways, and downright maddening in others.
She remarks that there has always been a sexual backdrop to modeling, which is true. Models pout and tease and exhibit "come hither" looks to sell virtually everything, so there shouldn't be any shocks there. What is perplexing is "the look" that is in at present.
Um, who is interested in this "ideal" model? Not most men, but homosexuals. It's no secret that the industry is heavily populated with men who would be far more attracted to adolescent boys than busty women, and they are doing much of the hiring and layouts. And they seem to have a thing for molesting these emaciated wisps -- not for gratification, but for kicks.
Wrong and bad -- and worthy of being exposed (although that story didn't make the final cut because the girl was afraid of the consequences). Info at MySpace.
