Angel Cameron Russell Warns Girls to Steer Clear of the Catwalk

While many young ladies consider a career as a supermodel to be the ultimate achievement, Cameron Russell has come out to challenge the notion.

The Victoria’s Secret Angel recently suggested that wannabe models explore other job options as well, as the industry can often be fickle.

"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."
