A raw and personal video diary, charts model Sara Ziff’s rise from fresh face to one that adorns billboards and magazines around the world. Ziff and filmmaker, Ole Schell, co-direct the documentary, lifting the veil on the glamorous world of high fashion modeling, from photo shoots with celebrated photographers to runway shows in New York, Milan, and Paris.

Rotten: Worthless as social commentary and clueless as a film. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Sep 17, 2010

Fresh: Viewers will get a fairly frank look inside a profession where huge financial success doesn't require much more, as even Ziff's mother admits, than being "pretty and on time." – John Anderson, Variety, Sep 23, 2010

Rotten: I have a lot of questions about models, but none is answered in this film by catwalker Sara Ziff and her boyfriend Ole Schell. – Kyle Smith, New York Post, Sep 17, 2010
