Cameron Russell: “Looks aren’t everything…”

This video truly inspired me. We need to keep considering the realities behind what we’re fed.

As Ms. Russell showed her audience the contrast between “Magazine Cameron” and “Real Life Cameron”, I was stunned. I know publications use young(er) models. But hearing about the industry from someone in it really haunted me.

How many times have I been concerned about my body’s dimensions–all because I’ve compared them to someone who was half my age?

Her words also left me afraid. I found myself hoping that men’s magazines don’t use underage models.

That may sound like a silly fear to you. But honestly…I figure if presenting high-schoolers in images meant for adult eyes is the norm in women’s magazines, then anything is possible.


If you’re curious about Cameron Russell’s adventures beyond the world of modeling, she has a Twitter account. She’s also one of the brilliant minds behind Interrupt Magazine.
