Finally, some real talk about modeling, straight from the horse's obscenely beautiful person's mouth! After getting off to an awkward start at her TEDxMid-Atlantic talk — changing from sexy model to Cambridge activist with just one printed maxi skirt, yikes — model Cameron Russell answers the basic model's Q&A with self-awareness rarely found inside the fashion industry. How did she become a model? “I won a genetic lottery, and I am the recipient of a legacy.” She's talking about white privilege, and she admits to "cashing out" on it. It's so good, we don't even want to give away any more of it.
