DM – She has walked the catwalk runways for brands such as Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren and appeared in the pages of Vogue. But Victoria’s Secret model Cameron Russell is warning girls away from a modelling career. The 25-year-old, who recently spoke at the annual TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) conference in Palm Springs, condemned the fashion’s industry’s obsession with beautiful, skinny white women.She said: ‘For the past few centuries we have defined beauty not just as health and youth that we are biologically programmed to admire. ‘But also as tall, slender figures and femininity and white skin. This is a legacy that was built for me and its a legacy that I have been cashing out on.’ In a follow-up interview on CNN she said she was the winner of a ‘genetic lottery’ and that her looks merely fit a narrow definition of beauty.
Good for Cameron Russell. What a brave girl. Seriously. It takes a lot of balls and courage to stand there and tell beautiful, skinny white girls not to model when the only reason anybody is listening to a single word you have to say is because you’re a beautiful, skinny white girl who models. I don’t know. Maybe I’m crazy but I just have this feeling that your views would carry a little more weight if maybe you turned down your first modeling contract instead of jetsetting around the world, walking up and down a runway and earning a fortune?
I just can’t stand people like this. Cameron had no problem turning her head to this horrible injustice of thinking hot people are hot when the checks were rolling in. But now that she’s made her nut? Admiring classic beauty is worse than apartheid. We’re terrible people for liking hot chicks in lingerie. Sorry sweetheart but that’s the way the world works. And your TED talk ain’t changing shit. Sorry when it comes to finding girls attractive I lean more towards the healthy eating disorder rather than a healthy appetite.
PS – the fact that she says she “won the genetic lottery” is so awesomely cocky. Kinda makes me think Cam is just a Mean Girl looking for a bigger platform to rub how hot she is in fat girls’ faces.
