      Audience Member A bunch of ruminations from former 80s models, including a pre-crazy Whitney Houston. Almost all of them were mainstays of magazines like Seventeen, and they're a fairly thoughtful group except for the youngest, Bridget Hall. Is she on something? Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member another heartfelt journey of a childhood model finding out how herself and so many other young girls viewed their modeling experience now as adults. i was strangely surprised at how most of them turned out to be very articulate well rounded women, with plenty of flaws, but able to accept them and move on from the modeling world Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
