Beverly Johnson, Pat Cleveland Fete 'About Face: Supermodels Then And Now' Series In Style (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

If aging gracefully is the goal, then we can learn a lot from the legendary supermodels in HBO's new series "About Face: Supermodels Then And Now."

Directed by renowned photographer and filmmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, the series explores the stories of fashion's most iconic models: Jerry Hall, Christie Brinkley, Isabella Rossellini and Bethann Hardison, to name a few. Boasting candid interviews and stunning images, the show is sure to be a hit.

A few of our favorite fashion icons, Beverly Johnson and Pat Cleveland, showed off their age-defying beauty last night in New York City to fete the show, which premieres July 30.

Beverly looked smashing in a semi-sheer black sequin dress and peep-toe booties. Not many 59-year-olds could pull off this sexy look, but Beverly's supermodel powers have clearly stood the test of time.

Opting for a more dramatic look, Pat donned a shimmering champagne-hued, off-the-shoulder gown for the event, displaying her fabulous 60-year-old figure.

We'll have whatever they're having, because these ladies look fabulous!

Beverly and Pat, the first black model to grace the cover of American Vogue and one of the Versailles Models of 1973, respectively, are true legends. We hope their "About Face" episodes touch on their feelings about diversity (or lack thereof) in the fashion industry now.

Check out Beverly (with model Carol Alt) and Pat at the "About Face: Supermodels Then And Now" party and a slideshow of the event below -- will you be tuning in?
