Harper’s Bazaar | Ageless Beauty | Supermodels of The 80’s Luncheon
Cheryl Tiegs, Kim Alexis and Kelly Emberg, three of our Supermodels participating in the upcoming I Am Waters’ Supermodels of The 80’s Luncheon, are featured in the April 2012 Harper’s Bazaar issue.
IAW celebrity guests are some of the most famous models in American history featured in Vogue, Elle, Cosmopolitan, GQ, Town & Country, Glamour and many others. They include Cheryl Tiegs, Kim Alexis, Kelly Emberg, Joan Severance, Tara Shannon, Kim Charlton, Dianne deWitt, Tony Spinelli and Jack Scalia.
In a new documentary, legendary supermodels prove they are still at the top of their game. Photographed by Timonthy Greenfield-Sanders. Stylist Jade Hobson.
To make his latest documentary, renowned portrait photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders was simply in the right place at the right time. Specifically, a supermodel-packed party in 2009 at the New York pad of seminal hairdresser Harry King. “I said I’d go for five minutes, but when I walked in I was floored by all these gorgeous women in the same room,” he recalls. “It looked like a Charlie ad come to life. And I thought, This would be the most amazing group shot.”
He did it–and he was right. The resulting image—a portrait of the biggest faces from the 1950s through the ’80s, including Beverly Johnson, Carol Alt, Cheryl Tiegs, and Patti Hansen—sums up what beauty meant in America in the latter part of the 20th century. “I was so inspired by these women, I thought it would make an even better documentary,” says Greenfield-Sanders. “You wanted to hear what these beautiful faces had to say.”
So he made About Face: The Supermodels, Then and Now, which will air on HBO this summer. “They’re all survivors,” he says of his muses. “They defined beauty for their generations. And they have the most fabulous personalities.”
