According to Cameron, those we think are beautiful or the models we want to look like are simply lucky. In recent history we have built up an idea of what is beautiful and Cameron was lucky enough to fit those standards. She goes on to say that this doesn’t mean she has no insecurities. In fact, she points out that although she and other models have been fortunate to look they way they do, models are some of the most insecure people in the world.
So here are some questions to consider. Have you ever wanted to be a model? Or simply to look like one? Why? Do you think you’d feel better about yourself? Or that life would be easier?
Cameron gives examples of times where she avoided trouble because of her appearance. In which case, do you think your life would be different if you looked like a supermodel? Do you think people get special treatment because of their appearance?
What about deeper questions about superficiality? Are we so concerned with our appearance that we forget other things like intelligence, kindness, politeness? Why are we so quick to judge people on the way they look instead of the way they think?
There are many questions to be answered and we’d love to hear from you. Comment and share to join the conversation.
