Cameron Russell is 25 and one of the coolest, intelligent young models we know. You may know her from her runway appearances in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, but Cameron is also known for her activist projects and a ‘Looks Aren’t Everything’ TED Talk, which went viral last year.
Cameron also runs the blog ArtRoots.info, which is dedicated to covering grassroots public art and political power and experiments with creating street art herself. In addition, Cameron is the director of The Big Bad Lab, which creates participatory art that aims to include people in radical demonstrations of positive social change.
She’s a co-founder of the new web-based magazine Interrupt, about women, identity, the internet and taking action. Read an update on her work in the New York Times
