Model Behavior- Cameron Russell’s Thoughts On Image At The TED x Mid Atlantic 2012

I am standing on this stage because I am a pretty white woman, and in my industry we call that a “sexy girl”. I am going to answer some of the questions people ask me but with an honest twist." Victoria’s Secret model Cameron Russell has made a career out of sexy lingerie and glittery wings but she is keenly aware of how fake her image really is and just how much manipulation by the industry she works within goes into constructing a fantasy.

This was the topic she chose to explore at the 2012 TED x Mid Atlantic conference, exploring among many things society's perception of what it means to be beautiful, the many benefits and pitfalls of winning the proverbial genetic lottery and the insecurities that are fed and bred in young women's psyche- including her own. 

While the video is definitely more than worth watching, it’s interesting to note ironically that just last week Russell’s image was paraded through living room's across the world in Victoria’s Secret’s annual fashion show, where the 25-year-old was wearing a shrunken raincoat.

Speaking of body image VS is actually trying to promote their revamped active wear using VS models while the same model in their video Doutzen Kroes spoke on her own thoughts about body image recently. Food for thought.
