A Victoria’s Secret Model Breaks Down Privilege and Physical Insecurity in This TED Talk [VIDEO]

Victoria’s Secret model Cameron Russell gives honest answers to questions about the superficiality—and the importance—of physical appearance in our society. Speaking as someone who fully acknowledges her success stems from her winning the “genetic lottery,” Russell’s perspective is quite interesting. My favorite part is when she explains what she wants to say to little girls when they tell her they want to be a model: That they should instead aspire to ”Be my boss. Because I’m not in charge of anything. And you could be the editor-in-chief of American Vogue or the CEO of H&M or the next [legendary fashion photographer] Steven Meisel.”
(It would be great if she actually told them that, but I won’t judge her for it.)
