About Face - GREAT Doc about the past lives and current lives of the Models we grew up with in the 80's.

The Documentary is so factual, true to the point, and gives insight to the Industry in the 1980's.

I was blessed to have a met a beautiful Cosmetics Gal Super Hottie, and we fell in love, 1980. I was in the F&B Club Business, and worked until late every night. Whenever we could steal time away, she would be excited to tell me EVERYTHING she learned about the Cosmetic, Fragrance and up and coming Models. Which Designer hired a new face, etc. I was a SPONGE for information. We were so HOH for each other. For the next 6 years I could "Name" any fragrance a woman was wearing, or the "Style" of Makeup she was wearing.

We were in a whirlwind of an emerging Fragrance and Makeup revolution.

I was engaged to, what I considered, a local Supermodel in SF Bay Area from 1980 -1986. She was, earlier, a contributing writer for Teen Magazine. She worked in Cosmetics at Bullocks for Calvin, Estee, Lauren, and could backup her associates Counters in Bourgeoisa, Polo, Lancome, Clinique, YSL, Dior, Jovan, Giorgio, Brut, Drakkar, Revlon, of course Channel Co Co, Paloma Picasso, Cartier, Arden, Fendi, Givenchy Ysatis, Dior, Pavlova, Laroche, Geoffrey Beene and Grey Flannel, Giorgio (Yuk), Anais Anais, Fendi, Guess, Elizabeth Taylor Passion and Diamonds, Revlon, Coty, Krizia, Clarins, La Perla, Claiborne, Vanderbilt, Jovan, Ritz, Max Factor, Anne Klein, DKNY, Gloria Vanderbilt, Tatiana Diane von Furstenberg, Gucci, Faberge, L'Air du Temps Nina Ricci, Jean Nate, Revlon, aka Revco, JHL (Joseph H. Lauder).

The lifestyle of most of the girls in the Cosmetic Departments during that era was very similar to this documentary. The only difference in this documentary is that the Professional Models look and act more mature and in better control of their well being today, versus the Cosmetics girls. The Professional Models no doubt had Mentors and other professionals to guide them as they aged the past 30 years. Back then, it was all about "Face". This documentary gives us a real look "Back" in "About Face".

Great Memories revisited with this Documentary "About Face".
