This did not look like a labor rally. But that is, in effect, what it really was.
We wrote last week how much we think everyone in the fashion industry — and a healthy share of people outside of it — should see “Picture Me,” Sara Ziff’s documentary about what it’s really like to be a model. During New York Fashion Week, Ziff went backstage for The Cut to talk with models and industry about issues from how young models are when they start working to how much or how little they’re allowed to eat.
The shady, predatory side of the industry is the one former model Sara Ziff, above, wanted to portray in her new film Picture Me: A Model’s Diary, which chronicles five years in the lives of a group of models and follows them backstage and beneath the makeup. The movie (or at least the trailer) reveals a world of women who are treated more like robots than human beings.
