Cameron Russell admits she won "a genetic lottery": she's tall, pretty and an underwear model. But don't judge her by her looks. In this fearless talk, she takes a wry look at the industry that had her looking highly seductive at barely 16-years-old. (Filmed at TEDxMidAtlantic.)

Now everyone can say its opinion and hosts a show even if they don't have a single clue about the topic. People are made by a part of contingency; this woman is made totally by contingency

I don't have problem with the talk or the title. The title is right, looks are something but aren't everything.

I always wondered why such beautiful woman required acting and artistry skills, Acting for the captivating poses and artistry for the tantalizing make up. Last but not least, money. Lots of money to cover the cost of fashion. To be perfectly honest tho, I do not think ugliness exists with in appearance. The beautiful people are most likely beautiful due to a habitual life style, derived from rich parents. Fortunately the human anatomy does not differ greatly from person to person and if you can learn to optimize it, beauty lies at everyone's finger tips, that being said, so does aptitude, intelligence, creativity and physicality. For example, it might be cliche but its true, pretty woman are dumb but the power to be smart lays dormant with in their own minds, simply because they dont need to be smart. You heard her say she was given a dress because she didnt have the money. Enter stupidity, maybe its forced by society or maybe pretty people accept it?

this is complete bullshit. Look matters the most in this world. People like u, listen to u and give u everything when u r tall, handsome or pretty. Personal experience. This girl just got money and fame based on her look and now shes talking bullshit look isnt everything ? TED talk is just bullshit

Leave it to a good looking person to say how much looks don’t matter lmao. It’s like a millionaire saying to a bunch of poor people money doesn’t matter
Kyungmi Park (2 дня назад)
People get so angry when it’s about looks. Her message is, physical appearance is superficial, don’t ever look at someone and compare yourself or think you’d be happier if you look that way. Don’t let other people change how you feel about yourself. Always be happy in your own skin.

Her point about LEGACY is deep.. this was built for the white views and what is beautiful for them. Very discriminatory. Because people view beauty very different around the world, for example my country we find skinny tall women unattractive.

In my twenties I had so much negative persecution just because of my looks. Queens can be vile creatures. I wish I had had more confidence in myself back then. I would have called them out on their unwarranted vitriol. Everyone has their strengths and weaknesses, qualities and attributes.

This is great. Here’s what I interpreted. Being the "ideal" look is to the utmost beneficial financially and socially. The ideal look is to be of light European decent, male or female. Looking this way for her personally gave her a career, financial freedom, free passes from offenses, and social acceptance from just about everyone. The cons are insecurity and being seen as someone who is the opposite of who she truly is. I like how she mentioned the biases against others for what they look like. Black and Latino males are truly ostracized by society because of the basic norms that are taught by the dominant “color.” Lol funny way to put it. My opinion....Everything she said is true and it brought up all of my emotions and experiences of my own life. Read on if you would like. I’m a “black” educated female and it is taboo for many that both can coexist. Black? And a university education without affirmative action? 4.0 gpa? Dean’s list? Paying out of pocket? I’m “black” and said by many “pretty.” For many others, it is taboo that this can also coexist. Pretty and black? WHOA!!! I cannot count the number of times I have heard, “you are pretty for a black girl.” It’s horrible that it has been said so much by so many that is has caused those that are light in the black community to look at dark girls and tell them that they are pretty for a dark chick. 🧐 Huh? For real though? Colorism needs to cease! I am told all the time that I should be a model for my looks. I have gone to big cities like Miami and Chicago and have been asked by actual models if I was one too. I am not one btw. Because of my looks, I get free stuff (food, clothes, technology) and compliments just about everyday but she is right, it is definitely not peaches and cream. As already mentioned, I get ignorant comments about being smart, pretty, and black all at once. I get unwanted touching like butt grabs by strangers (I was actually threatened to be beaten by a man who I told to never inappropriately touch me again) and unexpected shoulder massages by coworkers. I get rude stares by other women, untrue gossip by jealous people, and hated by women for looking this way. I had a few bullies in HS that I never even had a full conversation with; they hated me for my looks, my style, and the fact that others liked me for it. I am also insecure, I see in black culture that thick thighs and big butts are in. I see that big hips and breasts are in. Long bouncy hair and straight white teeth are in. Well I have gaps in my teeth and coffee/tea stains. I have small hips, long legs, a small waist but with a big booty. My bf calls it slim thick. But definitely not thick like the video girls though! I have short kinky curly hair and 90% of my body resembles that of a skinny white girl with this model’s body type...so in the black culture, I feel less than everyday because my body type is not ideal to them. In the general society, many men don’t give me a second look regardless of prettiness because I am black. Many only give me a second look because I AM black and they want to know how it is to be with a black girl. 😒 Dating sucks because people always want to be with you for the wrong reasons. Okay here is my point....There are many pros and cons to being what you are, NO MATTER what you are. She has pros and cons for being the ideal human, I have pros and cons for being me and so does everyone else in life. But as long as you stay true to WHO you are, don’t worry about another’s opinions about WHAT you are. It may hurt you financially or socially for a little bit but keep pushing and the bully at the top will eventually give way. I am a strong black female, I don’t care if someone pushes me , I will push back until they stop.

I'm not sure what the point of this was. It just seems like she feels guilty about being beautiful. She did graduate from Columbia, and stays in excellent shape. That part takes work.

I appreciate what was said, but it is easy to talk about looks when one is blessed with exceptional looks. Looks aren't everything but as she pointed out, it presents numerous opportunities in one's favor. What would be interesting is to see this same content given by someone from the opposite end of the physical spectrum.

requinremembers (4 дня назад)
For us mere mortals who didn't win the genetic lottery, every little bit of good looks counts. Before I gained 20 pounds, even being in my 50s I was considered a hottie and had lots of attention. I gained 20 pounds and bam, instantly lost much/most of that admiration from so-called friends. Now when I'm out and about I get ignored 85% of the time whereas previously I often got looked at. It's amazing to me really how different I am perceived now. I am the same person on the inside. 10/12/18.

She feels like guilty to be beautiful and privileged, but she shouldn't. She didn't harm anyone she just uses her looks to her benefit, like a tall guy can use his height to become a basketball player. I liked her talk and good for her to be able to expose in front of everyone how insecure she feels about herself.
Nadya Sitch (5 дней назад)
Do you know why pretty people say that looks aren't everything? Cause they've got nice appearance and they know that feeling when you're beauty, but, for example, unloved or unhappy. Rich people got money and that's why they understand that there are a lot of wonderful and invaluable things like health and happy family. Don't judge her if you don't know how it feels.

brilliant vid . Below is an extreme essay about some of the few topics in the comment section. Don't judge me I was bored. Everyone is at a certain point to be fair. (Note there may be errors or what not. But grammar Nazis are not welcome so be gone) Then I went to the comment section where two types of people dwell the positive and the negative. Allow me to point out some things I spotted in the comment section and simplify them. Indeed we all have heard the "looks are not everything" . This is true. Personality and other factors 'should' be at the top of the priority list without a doubt . Of course aesthetics play a role to a certain degree but let's put it into a situation. Let's say a person isn't particularly attractive based on your preferences but had many more positive qualities, there should be a compromise to a certain degree as to weather you'd start a relationship with them or not. In today's society that's not the case, most people are judged strictly on appearance nowadays and people who are supposedly 'unattractive' usually are not given the chance to show their other qualities to make up for what they may be lacking. The word it's self 'unattractive' strictly depends on personal preference as well since 'beauty' can be something very different depending on the person e.g what one may see as unattractive another may see it as attractive. Media is designed to influence people on what attractiveness looks like or just simply show what the majority believe is attractive, in reality it's just down to preference and most people would do well to make compromises in appearance for other characteristics but unfortunately most humans are not like that and blame biological traits or whatever that bullshit is ( your a human with a complex brain and capable of making decisions not based strictly on biological traits fucking use it ). compromises would allow anoyone to have a chance with anyone they wished instead of being completely rulled out due to appearance. If people were willing to make compromises and not judge people on just appearance the world would indeed be a better place.

I’m so tired of the implication that I should feel guilty because I’m white. Every one else is encouraged to feel proud of their ethnicity- unless you are white. I am also tired of the implication that I am privileged because I am white - I know many black woman who have had much easier lives...are all white people supposed to feel guilty because of what other human beings have done? This politically correct b.s. does not help to heal anything...it’s just shifting the shame from one group to another..,
