It's also not kind to women who start to show their age - or any age above 20, for that matter.
So, what happens when you're a legendary supermodel making tons of money and traveling the world? We don't hear much from models of the past, such as Christie Brinkley, Jerry Hall, Beverly Johnson, Isabella Rossellini, and Cheryl Tiegs.
Until now… HBO will be airing a new documentary called About Face: Supermodels Then And Now, which tells the stories of some of the most recognizable women in the modeling industry and what their struggles have been with fighting ageism in the fashion world.
