'Those Wrecked By Success' is a short film by fashion photographer and director Sebastian Faena. Starring fashion model Gigi Hadid, this short film gives viewers a glimpse of the unseen side of a celebrity.

Sebastian Faena created this film in partnership with V Magazine. Casting Gigi Hadid to play an older version of herself, the American model is seen as a 24-year-old actress a day after winning an Oscar for Best Female Actress. Those Wrecked By Success is mainly a silent film, except for a short voiceover in which we hear Hadid's acceptance speech. In seven minutes, viewers are exposed to Hadid waking up and lazing about her California mansion with a sobering look branded across her face.

Capturing the private side of A-lister life, Those Wrecked By Success will make viewers question the nature of success.
