The Reality Show No 8 Model Girl

Dear Shaded Viewers,

The episode takes you from the 70's when Lauren Hutton snagged her first cosmetic contract to the about to make it big faces of today. Illustrated with their model composites and shots from personal Instagrams, and some recent covers, you’ll meet Binx, Alexandra Elizabeth, Mona Matsuoka, Hana Jirikova, Alicia Vikander and more!

Nigel Barker, former judge on Amerca's Next Top Models talks about trailblazing forces in the industry while Valerie Steel of FIT teaches the alternative beauty-club kids from transgender to the size of Twiggy's waist.

"We've also mined the vintage book stores for must have model books and magazines-Pat Cleveland's book of poetry "In The Spirit of Grace", Brooke Shields' 1982 classic "The Brooke Book", the Japanese magazine Studio Voice's collectable Kate Moss Mania issue and more!

And don't forget Peter Marlowe-the man who invented model composites-who has shared a copy of Twiggy's composite order form, filled out by Justin de Villeneuve from 1966.

In addition we've got Countdown featuring a story by our contributing make-up artist Karim Rahman along with Nathaniel Goldberg and stylist Beat Bolliger, contributing street fashion portraits series by le 21eme, mind blowing still lifes of jewels by photographer Kochiro Doi, Japanese kids by Chikashi Suzuki, and more!
