Cameron has been modeling for more than 10 years and has been featured in the international editions of Vogue magazine and in ads for famous brands like Benetton, Luis Vuitton, and Yves Saint Laurent. She has also been a runway model for Victoria Secret, Chanel, Versace and numerous other famous designers. She also answers some of the popular questions that people ask her. Watch the video below. Take the quiz to test your comprehension. Read the transcript for further practice.
Despite your beauty being superficial and meaningless, it has a big impact on how you are seen. To become a model, Cameron is feminine, white and tall. Cameron looks at modelling as extremely fake and shallow — the skills learnt are minimal. Most of the shots are heavily directed — and unrelated to who she is. Worst Ted Talk ever. The title alone is ridiculous.
TEDTalks bring to mind creative people presenting innovative ideas and imaginative inventions. It isn't the forum you expect to hear a model suggest we not begrudge her because she is beautiful.
