Picture Me: A Model’s Diary
If you follow your gorgeous girlfriend around with a video camera for a few years, and her status as a supermodel affords you backstage access to her colleagues and leading designers in the fashion world, then guess what, your home movies might actually amount to a compelling feature film. Just such fortune has fallen at the feet of Ole Schell, boyfriend of cover girl Sara Ziff.
Sara was just a teenager when she was spotted on the streets of New York City by a talent scout who pegged her potential as the next “It” girl. With the permission of her skeptical parents, Susan, an attorney, and Ed, a microbiologist, she was allowed to forego her college education and sign with an agency. Their very naïve daughter was subsequently whisked off to Paris where she soon became all too familiar with the seamy underbelly of the fashion world.
