Victoria's Secret model Cameron Russell has opened up about the modeling industry once again, giving a frank interview about body image, and her perceived perfection.

The 25-year-old, who also models for Vogue and Harper's Bazaar, admitted that her career successes have helped to promote a 'skinny equals beautiful' female image - which she said, she feels guilty about.

I am sorry she feel guilty, since she has nothing to feel guilty about. People need to take responsibility for their own lives. Liberalism is a metal disorder.

Victoria's Secret models are thin-but-healthy, in contrast to the "death camp survivor" models common in the rest of the fashion industry:

I saw that TED speech, which told me everything I need to know about TEDdie. Heavy, deep, I tell ya. She walks in, high heels, pretty, expensive dress, carries a sack, proceeds to take off her high heels and puts on flat slippers, wraps around her hips a long peasant kind of skirt, puts a sweater on top, all the while talking something she had obviously memorized, then continues on saying that she’s just a... GASP! regular girl, that knows she owes her success to little more than a lucky combination of genes, demonstrates how during a photo session she’d have to take one step forward and then back hundreds of times, poor thing, the audience of intellectuals raves, I shake my head, remembering a movie with Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant called I think “Notting Hill” or “Nothing Hill”, which I watched on a Trans-Atlantic flight, when there was nothing better to watch, while going back and forth to Lyle Lovett’s double album, coming back for a minute between songs and not missing anything in the plot, where Hugh is a bookstore owner and Julia is a movie star, who’s just a, she says... GASP! regular girl, and the romance is on and off, and on and off, happy ending of course, and watching that TED intellectual exercise of onanism, I wondered if this “regular girl” on stage would stoop down and marry a regular boy like me or somebody, putting her money where her mouth was and is, so to speak.

“..her career successes have helped to promote a ‘skinny equals beautiful’ female image - which she said, she feels guilty about.”

As far as I’m concerned, skinny DOES equal beautiful. I prefer thinner women like Cameron Russell to heavier women. A lot of people agree with me, but others don’t and that’s cool, too.

That’s my take on it. The thing I like about Victoria’s Secret models is that they are not overly skinny. Usually, they have the perfect female form. No woman should feel bad about not achieving that sort of body. Healthy people should intuitively know this. So, her guilty feelings are not valid IMHO.

Why sad? I’m 108 lbs, size 5, still nice looking for an old broad-and even though I’m amenable to being asked out and work with guys, they always opt for the women dressed in frills, with boobs and some junk in the trunk-I’ve always been envious...

Liberalism is caused by drinking water with lead in it. My commentary was not about the underwear, in fact, the VS issue is irrelevant to our discussion to the extent that the woman is claiming to feel guilty because too many people stuff their mouths and cannot wear a size 1.

Oddly here in SOuthern California I get more male attention when I look like this gal rather than the first post of the VS model and in fact the VS model as pictured above would be considered on the 'chubby side' in the area I live in. What can I say.

Many men in Southern Cal. seem to have a penchant for the 'young girl look.' That is pretty sick when you think about it. However most marry the curvy brunettes. So they want to live with real and have brief sex with anorexia child I guess. That is my takeaway right or wrong.

That's it. Too each his /her own.

It did shock me the other day though. Women like Marilyn Monroe and Sophia Loren from fifty years ago look alomst 'chunky' by todays standards.

“I still have the body of a 20 year old. It’s in the freezer downstairs.”

I’m sure you’re kidding (I hope...LOL), but this actually happened here in Maine about a year ago.

An 80 year-old man died. When they were going through his possessions that he had placed in storage inside a storage locker, they found an unplugged old freezer. Inside the freezer was the body of his former girlfriend, who had gone missing back in 1980.

A woman will almost never marry a man of significantly lower income or status than her. Meanwhile, a man WILL marry a woman of lower income or social status, if she's very cute, has a high libido, or is especially fun to be with.

Women of high income/status who don't marry in their twenties often find themselves in a situation where the only men they would consider marrying, are more interested in marrying younger/hotter women.

They pick thin-but-healthy women because much (most?) of their target audience are men who buy VS items for their wives/girlfriends.

She talks:

http://www.carbonated.tv/lifestyle/victorias-secret-model-cameron-russell-discusses-ted-talk

There is a mystery to serious beauty, and she ain't got it.

Still, she is very pretty, and some of her advice to young girls sounds reasonable. OTOH I bet that her "white privilege" schtick is going to annoy plenty of white girls who know too damn well that they aren't privileged just because they are white.

Re: the white privilege thing. I think it’s more a blond privilege thing.

I have noticed in recent years that a remarkably limited ideal of feminine beauty has emerged. Tall, blond, thin but nevertheless with big bazooms.

Look at the football cheerleader squads, Victoria Secret models, SI swimsuit models group pictures, etc. The images aimed at actual men as opposed to other women or fashionistas.

It’s gotten so limited that they are starting to look like clones of each other.

I have no problem with this look. I think they are beautiful. But there are many other styles of female beauty and you just don’t see those featured as much as 10 years ago.

Which I find kinda sad.
