Photographer Sebastian Faena, who is also a filmmaker, has debuted his short film Those Wrecked By Success starring supermodel Gigi Hadid. The film takes place in Los Angeles and centers around the story of a young actress the day after winning an Oscar. The film captures the malaise of everyday life after a momentous, life-changing evening. It also captures a certain subtle fear a young actress must feel after being thrust into the spotlight virtually overnight.
It’s not a story that’s unrelatable to Hadid, who’s own career as a model has thrust her into the spotlight far beyond runways and photo shoots. Hadid is now a household name, not just as a model, but as a celebrity. One thing that seems certain, however, is that Hadid seems grounded enough so far to not be wrecked by success. Is her next step acting? There’s no known upcoming projects, but Hadid certainly has the face and the charisma for it, like Cara Delevingne before her, who just starred in her first feature film Paper Towns. Faena’s film debuted today on VMagazine.com and bonus stills from the film can be seen in the latest copy of V (V96).
