Victoria’s Secret Angel Cameron Russell recently gave a TED talk and addressed what it’s like to work in the fashion industry.
“Those pictures aren’t me,” the 25-year-old model said. “Photoshop is just the beginning; they’re a construction.”
To illustrate her point, Russell showed some of the modelling shots she’s taken throughout the years and contrasted them with candid shots of her at the time.
For this shoot, she was 15 and had “never worn a bikini,” Russell said. She contrasted it next to a picture of her with her grandmother around the same time:
