Girl Model2.jpgModeling isn't all about glamour. There's an ugly side to the industry too.
 
It's this seedier picture that David Redmon and Ashley Sabin document in their new film, "Girl Model." The film is a revealing look at the chain of young girls from Russia to Tokyo's modeling market, and the often vulnerable and exploitative position these girls are put in.

What do you think? Does the modelling industry need a regulating body to ensure young models aren't exploited?
