Cameron Russell Likens Modeling to Winning at Powerball

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.
