This model has one of the sharpest minds in the fashion world. Meet Cameron Russell – and learn her secrets.

Cameron Russell speaks onstage during Women Empowering Women Luncheon at the UN in 2014, Getty Images.

Looks aren’t everything. Believe me, I am a model. That was the title of Cameron Russell’s now famous 2012 Ted Talk. The speech – which was some powerful truth telling about the modelling industry – quickly went viral. 

Looks aren’t certainly everything to Cameron Russell. Besides pursuing a successful modelling career she runs Space-Made, a creative agency in Brooklyn, New York, and is one of the founders of Interrupt Mag, a digital magazine that wants to give a voice to women who feel marginalised by mainstream media.
