Presenting, just in time for global Fashion Weeks, the official trailer for Picture Me: A Model’s Diary, the candid backstage documentary directed by Ole Schell, who, according to press reports, “followed model Sara Ziff for several years documenting her rise from a fresh face to one that adorns billboards and magazines around the world.
