Summary, etc.:
A rare glimpse into the intriguingly complex world of professional modeling. Behind the glossy covers of Vogue and Glamour lie the rarely-discussed, uncensored stories of what models endure and sacrifice in order to become a top model. Through interviews with supermodels, photographers, agents, designers, plastic surgeons, make-up artists and psychologists, CHASING BEAUTY uncovers body image issues and the psychological effects that beauty businesses have on young women and men. The highly-demanding and oftentimes unattainable physical requirements for the position, the financial and emotional investment, and moral negotiations that sometimes become prerequisites encourage viewers to examine what is beauty, and is it worth the cost?
