Victoria's Secret Model Cameron Russell Says Modeling is not a Career Path

| by

Victoria's Secret model Cameron Russell told a conference in Palm Springs last week that lingerie modeling should not be a career goal for young hot girls.

From the Daily Mail:

She has walked the catwalk for Chanel, Balmain and Oscar de la Renta and even occupies a much coveted place as a Victoria's Secret Angel. But Cameron Russell has warned young girls away from the career choice she made eight years ago. Speaking at the annual TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) conference in Palm Springs, U.S., the 25-year-old spoke out about the importance of not choosing a career that is 'out of your control.'

She said: "What I really want to say to these little girls, is 'Why? You know, you can be anything.' You could be the President of the Unites States or the inventor of the next internet or a ninja cardio-thoracic surgeon poet, which would be awesome because you would be the first one. Saying you want to be a model when you want to grow up is akin to saying you want to win the Powerball when you grow up. It's out of your control and it's awesome, but it's not a career path. I am the recipient of a legacy - I've received all these benefits from a deck stacked in my favor."
