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.)

Cameron, you're suffering white privilege guilt. Get over it. If you're "insecure" because you "have to look good every day" well, get a REAL job where you have to perform a myriad of tasks each day. Millions of people live paycheck-to-paycheck never knowing if they'll have a JOB next week or next month. They don't know what's going to be expected of them or whether they can keep the boss happy. You just have to show up on time, report for makeup and hairstyle, wear what you're told, pose or walk the catwalk, and make big bucks. That's a tough gig?

OK, Cameron, why couldn't an attractive female be a model in her youth and seque into another career at age 30?

Guys, beauty "is" important for sure, don't bother with what this model said. If you ever feel like struggling because of how you look, then save some money and have a plastic surgery, or just kill yourself. To make life easier, these are perfect solutions to consider because things won't work out by complaining.

For everyone trying to get a good idea of life here, models aren't paid for being smart... Just food for thought

“It’s so horrible being beautiful - it makes me so insecure”. I know exactly what she is on about. I’m sick and tired of pushing women away from me and getting dates all the time. My self esteem is really low. All those lonely people out there - you really don’t know how lucky you are. I would love to be in my bed on my own instead of being with sexy women.
Fabiola Murcia (2 дня назад)
Its way easier for short women who are not models and have a career to find good men. Models attract sleeze usually. My husband's mainstream attractive and he would never date a model. He turned one down before we met. I'm glad he's mine.

some people really dont get it. She says: *" Looks aren't **_EVERYTHING_** "* Yes, right, looks help. A lot. Atleast other people told me that. lol. But they definitely aren't everything.

Its true .Thats why Melania looks sooo unhappy .Because beauty doesnt last for ever. I have seen many beautiful women being lonely and depressed and many not so atractive ones being happy and more positive about life.And the opposite of course .Beauty helps but isnt everything.Most powerful women in the World rich and appreciated are not models ,they are not even beautiful ,they are regular looking women (Opra ,Ellen de generis ,Angela Merkel ..) We all want to be loved and appreciated for who we are not the way we look ,because looks goes away very fast .....love yourself !
evette (6 дней назад)
when she was talking about all the privileges being beautiful has, she didn't at all conveince me that looks aren't eveything. I mean, I am as insecure as 100% so I still think it's better to be beautiful and insecure than ugly and insecure.

We always want things we cannot achieve or that are not in our own hand. If you are beautiful (on the outside (mainstream thinking)), then you have to admit that u have some big advantages in real life. But we all know that it doesn't really matter. If you are ugly (on the outside (mainstream thinking)), then u have to admit that u have some hard times, because of how you are looking on the outside, for OTHERS. The thing is, it really doesn't matter if u are ugly or beautiful. If u wanna have a good life, work hard get rich and make yourself beautiful with money. I saw a lot of ugly people on the IN and OUTside with a lot of cash. (But I know that they never be that happy as I am) Cameron Russel is showing us just the reality and that she is able to think over that goal to be beautiful. She clearly says that her Job is to be a Construction. A Model. Thank u for speaking out Cameron.

that was one of the bravest speeches I've ever heard given everything you said was true and I love that you are so inclusive and aware of where we need to work on things as funny as it sounds those people in that audience and those that listen to this video will listen because you're beautiful sorry to say that's the way it is my whole life I fought against people seeing me on a superficial level and I really feel that the things that you are trying to help us to see will generate outwards and continue to help us to grow thank you for your time and bravery

I don't understand those who are leaving snarky comments. It doesn't matter that she was nervous, nor that she has remained a model, even though it is not as great as career as some people imagine it to be. She's already looking forward, as she has tuition money saved for college. How many models have gone to college after their short career is over? I like this Ted talk.
Gabazi Nxumalo (9 дней назад)
YouTube comments are the most realest reflections of human behavior. Give people the opportunity to say what they really feel and remain anonymous that’s when you’ll get the truth. I mean a lot of people say mean things virtually but in real life they are the “nicest” people. I’m not against people expressing their opinion. If it was bad for you then eyyyyyyyyyy cool. But some of these comments are malicious, strategically designed to destroy another human being.
Miruthula Ketheeswaran (9 дней назад)
So many insecure people in this comments trying to take it out on a model who was stating something positive that looks aren’t everything

antihackergrl 31now32 (10 дней назад)
If she turned that into my college class as a video project or something she would get an A plus from me lol.. she's a smart girl, very passionate about life. Women are beautiful and sometimes we are just trained to be insecure, through society, and social meida networks. If we are confident about it some people get intimidated by it, but I think I love make up because it is fun to experiment with it, it's a hobbie, and sometimes guys don't understand it, and over think it, but if it makes her feel healthy and it brings out her joy and spirit, that's a good thing. I think girls should take pride in their hobbies, and passions, when they do this it builds character, as long as you like it, but if it doesn't there's always an option to find another path. it doesn't mean men are not gorgeous either, sometimes there so gorgeous that I forget what I'm doing.

Whispering Wind (10 дней назад)
Money isn't everything, says the wealthy man... Beauty isn't everything, says the supermodel... You can be alone despite having a large group of friends, says the charismatic life of the party... Just stop already... No matter how many times the wealthy and the powerful try to sell us the same Bullshit lines to make us content with our lot in life, it never rings true... Some people can work and strive and never reach their dreams no matter how hard they try, and making yet another speech about how "tough" you have it as a model or celebrity or wealthy CEO does not magically make you more relatable to everyone else... Save your Bullshit for those naive enough to believe it...Or better yet, stop trying to lie to us in the first place...

Gökberk Ayral (1 день назад)
Would you like to hear those words from a homeless man or from a very ugly woman? It would sound like cold comfort. You already got the point. We gotta be *content* . Trying to search for happiness is an endless loop. All those wealthy people, supermodels etc. are trying to say the same thing. They tried to be beautiful, tried to be wealthy or whatever they thought would make them happy but in the end they all saw that it wasn't *just* enough to be *happy* . We have to be *content* . Doesn't mean we shouldn't strive for better. Just gotta remember that our desires will never cease, and we will never be *happy* with what we have. Unless we are *content* . Such is our nature.

penny 2018 (11 дней назад)
ridiculous. she has no "privilege", she is only whining about her industry, because she is nearing an age where she will not get most top jobs any more, or she simply is trying see bejond her "bubble"and can not. being judged by how you look everyday, happens to every woman all the time, all over the world, no matter what they do, or look like. getting out of a speeding ticket happens to ugly people too, if the cop is nice and you made an honest mistake once in your life. be thankful to the cop and do not be arrogant. getting gifts as a celebrity is also not new and happens to ugly celebity too. regarding "privileges", she should try getting a job in the "real world", than she would be shocked by how many drop dead beautiful model-type woman work in everyday 9-5 Jobs, without ever getting any ("White" or "Beauty") privilege. In fact, it is even harder to get, or keep a job because you are discriminated more as an attractive (White, black, whatever ..) woman, than as a not so pretty one. go and get a corporate job Woman ! and than talk to us again about "white beauty privilege " and the "genetic lottery" you thought you won .you are in one industry, at a certain time and place, get out of that "bubble" and you will be shocked. good luck! and btw. i do not judge you by how you dress, what you look like, or your skin color, but by what you speak. i do not hate or dislike you and i see your beauty and i see your good intend, but your words are those of a person living in a "bubble". leave that bubble for a corporate job in the real world and than come back to talk to us again about "your genetic privilege" in the real world. spoiler alert : most men will not hire you, but rather want to date you and reject you therefore for a job you apply for , and most woman will be too jealous to work with you and not employ you, or bully you at work. - good luck with leaving your "bubble" !

Cosmic Mind (11 дней назад)
No single aspect of life is "everything". It's combination of valued things in society (looks, wealth, intelligence, personality, etc) that makes up for everything. If you at least have one of the above, you should be thankful for it. There's no such thing as DRAWBACK to any of those thing. Any drawback is the result of complex interaction between many variables either inside of you (your traits, personal experience, neuroticism) or outside of you (other people, society), not from your looks or other valued things.
Destiny Alba (11 дней назад)
What some people dont understand is when ppl think your perfect they hate you it's called jealousy. Only guys will be nice if they think they can get something from you. Personally ppl tell me how pretty I am and how perfect my little family is but I cringe when they say that because later they are the ones that talk behind my back or try to sabotage. Women do this all the time, it's exhausting and makes me antisocial.
enzyme 2000 (11 дней назад)
Good looking guys get treated way better also. Just look at (datin apps' stats!) Good looking guy smiles at a woman, its great etc. ... If you are not good looking and smile at some one you're immediatelly a creep or some kind of stocker or psycho without exception.

She never explained why models are insecure. All of us worry about what we look like. And if worrying while being beautiful is burdensome, it’s even worse when you weren’t born as lucky as she did.

My take-away: ppl really do treat you better when you’re tall, thin, young & beautiful. 🤓
splitdog homee (12 дней назад)
She makes a point to transform how she looks and then says there is very little we can do to change how we look. This very typical of TED talks where people are putting on a show for emotionally based reasoning with little or no logic allowed to interfere.

Commentors are proving the point of their own superficiality, probably because they themselves are below average physically, envy others, or have deep seeded issues. How is that an attractive person's fault?! Society is vain. Blame the people that put others on a pedestal. That's the real issue.

The title says "Looks aren't everything", it doesn't say "Looks are nothing". Her point wasn't "You're having a better life if you look uglier than me". Her point was this: Being a model is great because models look amazing and make a lot of money. But what people don't knows that model isn't one of the best jobs in the world because they're the ones that are being judged and the most insecure about their bodies. And people judge others depending on the looks. She, as a model, experiences this a lot because people see her as the attractive woman in the photoshoots but not as her real self.

Wtf did I just hear? This talk had nothing to do with anything.

she tells thouse pics are the constructions but i disagree with that as even on the compared pictures on the right she still looks beautiful and it didnt change much. if makeup artists and hairstylists could use that kind of magic - they wouldnt do it on models only, as it doesnt change regular ppl much as well as the clothing\underware changes body shape and bones we were born with

I have such bad body dysmorphia I have no idea how attractive or ugly I am at this point, I have no perception of what I look like at all. Kinda comforting to know you can always make up for it in personality. There’s hope for everyone. No matter how you look, you’ll find someone and you can live a full life

I won't be able to look at a magazine cover the same ever again. The images of Cameron in print vs. real life were the most moving to me. After witnessing that, everything she said made sense to me. It's easier to understand the struggles of beauty and the effect it can have on a persons happiness. A very complex and deep topic brought to you by one of the most attractive people in the world. I hope this gets a trillion views.
