Portfolio is a nice docudrama about the fashion world in the early 80s.
The story follows 6 Elite studio models and their life in New York, Paris and Rome.

Starring strikingly beautiful girls Julie Wolfe, Carol Alt, Kelly Emberg, Paulina Porizkova,
Patty Owen and Carrie Nygren.

Kelly Emberg and Carol Alt

It goes without saying that you can see great 80s fashion, clothes, haircuts and so on.
Hot dance class scenes, photo shoots, partying and break dance.
Rock Steady Crew performs at one of the parties and Andy Warhol is watching.

The soundtrack is huge. Sylvester Levay composed the original music.
You can also hear these artists and tunes:

Kraftwerk "the model" (figures [Smile] )
Rod Stewart "baby Jane"
Alan Parsons Project "eye in the sky"
Eurythmics "sweet Dreams"
Missing Persons "destination unknown"
Red Rider "light in the tunnel"
Steppenwolf "born to be wild"

and much more...

Fantastic time capsule!

Atomik this looks really awesome!
I'm one of those crazy girls that likes watching T&A flicks haha but because this is a legitimate "docudrama" I can't label it that! Remember the Sports Illustrated swimsuit specials on HBO? not sure if that was just a 90's thing or started in the 80's? I really like watching them for the fashion. I need to look for this one........thanks Atomik

Thanks Muffy!

I´m not that familiar with the Sports Illustrated swimsuit specials
but i know that two of these girls appeared on the cover of that mag.

Carol Alt (1982)

 -

Paulina Porizkova (1984,1985)

 -  -

I also found out that Kelly Emberg was married to Rod Stewart (1983-1990)
and Paulina Porizkova is still married to Ric Ocasek (1989-)

Nice find aTomiK. Your movie collection is one to be jealous of… [Wink]

Porizkova was pretty convincing in her role in the Drive music video. I also loved her in 'Her Alibi'. Can’t say I know any of the other models.

Too bad Renee Simonsen isn’t starring in this. She was my favourite model from the 80’s. And she wouldn’t be a model if she didn’t dated some kind of male celeb – in this case Duran Duran’s John Taylor.

Thanks TKO, i need to watch The Drive music video again.
This is a great collection by the way:

 -

And TKO, if you want to see ultra hot Renee Simonsen on screen,
check out horror movie called Nothing Underneath (1985)
Here´s my humble review:

I have PORTFOLIO on VHS. It's in really good shape. Sure wish they would re-master on DVD someday and come out with THE LOOK also.

I was just thinking, have you ever seen the movie (The Look)?
It´s 83 minutes long, just like Portfolio.
Same director, same cast... i mean are we talking about the same movie (Portfolio = The look) here [Smile]

Just wondering....

Btw, welcome to rewind, Bruce!

Thanks Muffy, it was great!
I believe that this cool photo is from those 1989 Cheryl Tiegs Sports Illustrated sessions.
