Model of Distinction - Cameron Russell

American Vogue takes a welcome respite from its usual roster of go-to-girls with a smouldering editorial featuring IMA favourite Cameron Russell and actor Luke Grimes. Super photographer Mario Testino brings his trademark sizzle to the fore capturing every nuance and spark as Russell and Grimes cavort on the idyllic Harbour Island in the Bahamas. Fashion editor Tonne Goodman takes full advantage of Russell's spectacular womanly physique, decking the Lions Management-repped beauty in tastefully modest swimwear and full length resort dresses perfect for romantic alfresco dining. The twenty-seven year old's dark exotic American beauty has graced the pages of Vogue Italia, W, Numéro, Paris Vogue, V, Self Service, Harper's Bazaar, and Elle in a career spanning over a decade. In recent years it has been Russell's inquisitive mind and observations which have been garnering industry attention. Proving to be more than just a pretty face, Russell majored in economics and political science from Columbia University and was a guest speaker at TEDx Mid-Atlantic in October 2012. Russell's TEDx presentation aptly titled "Looks aren't everything. Believe me, I'm a model." explores the social ramifications of images presented by the media and fashion, and also touches on the industry's bias on looks and skin colour. Russell's candid insights, eloquence, and wit have made the talk one of the most viewed TEDx presentations with over 9.5 million views.
