Filmmaker extraordinaire Datari Turner is taking on the world of high fashion in a new drama titled, Supermodel. According to, the movie is already being described as a modern day Mahogany, the 1975 cult classic starring Diana Ross as an aspiring fashion designer who leaves the Chicago slums to become one of the world’s top designers.
In Supermodel, Sessilee Lopez plays a young girl from the Brooklyn housing projects that goes from the subway to the runway becoming one of the most sought after models in the fashion industry. However, in the high stakes world of fashion and beauty, things aren’t always as pretty and glamorous as they seem.
Supermodel  features an all-star cast including Roger Guenveur, Fat Joe, ANTM  alum Toccara Jones, Angela Simmons, Tatyana Ali, Melissa De Sousa, Beverly Bond and Tyson Beckford.  It was also shot in New York, Paris and Los Angeles.
