Cameron Russell – Looks aren’t everything. Believe me, I’m a model #TopTedTalks
This message has never been more important. We are living in a digital world with many benefits but the ugly side far outweighs the benefits when it comes to human perception. Humans are now addicted to their smart devices and with that, we think everything we look at seems better than their own lives. Take it from Cameron Russell the supermodel.
Cameron Russell was introduced into the world of modeling by her mother’s friend who worked for Ford Models at the time. She became a part-time model at the age of 16. Then she signed with the agency in 2003. She worked for the major designers Chanel, Victoria’s Secret, Louis Vuitton, D&G, DVF, Vivienne Westwood, YSL, Armani, Versace, Oscar De La Renta… the list goes on.
In 2012 she held a TED talk titled “Looks aren’t everything. Believe me, I’m a model” which went on to be listed in the Top 20 Ted Talks of all time.
Why should you watch it?
“Modeling, she says, is a hollow experience, based on the undemocratic distribution of perfectly symmetrical features leading to unfair and unearned advantages. Beauty is paradoxical; superficial and at the same time powerful. Meaningless, yet full of meaning”. This coming from someone who looks like she could be Cindy Crawford and Eva Mendes love child if that were possible is a breath of fresh honest air!
A truly amazing speech and step forward for women everywhere. Her intellect shows great potential in what is yet to come from Cameron Russell and were not talking modeling!
