To any girl who might have a smaller chest or a smaller bum, YOU ARE PERFECT. Do not let anyone’s insecurity spread on to you.

"Instagram models" aren't real models. They aren't attractive either. That's why they're caked on with makeup, photoshop, and filters. Ugly, insecure, and pathetic.

Honestly the worst thing about these insta „models“ is that all they have is their sexuality not their aura or unique look like real models they literally just show their ass/boobs etc

these runway models are pulling punches ... they could smoke those instagrammers where they stand. Also the question is can anyone do instagram modeling, answer is yes, just like can anyone become an entrepreneur. Anyone can try it and anyone with enough drive can succeed, but to be a runway model not everyone can even get in the door cause some of it is basically .. the genetic lottery. the runway models being really nice 😁

i'm pro plastic surgery. It doesn't better your self-esteem, but it might help you in your journey to love and accept yourself better. Do it if you think it can help.

The runway models seem so much more real and eloquent because they are more in touch with themselves and the reality of their situation. They acknowledge their genetic advantage but also sense that it cant be everything through their struggles. The IG models have to constantly keep up with the image that they so painstakingly create and curate, like being confident/positive/liked, they have gotten used to being so concerned about how they seem and are lost behind this facade.

"body positive" and "curve model".allowing women to exploit their bodies and assume anyone can be a model. It's a job, and professional models are kept to a standard. Just like there's nothing wrong with "body positive" models, but it's a profession and it takes exercise and dieting. Some take it to an extreme.

The gag is the everyone in the comments is bashing the instagram models but the line between instagram and runway is getting blurred. People said the same about entertainers on YouTube and TV but the distinction between the two is ever closing. The runway models in this video were upity and judgy... Watch their space because social media is starting to engulf traditional media outlets - just look at magazine sales they have been decreasing for 20 years

No, it isn't getting blurred. Runway models have natural beauty and charisma. Instagram "models" don't, and instead have fakery, photoshop, and filters to cover up what they really look like.

What a lot of you guys are failing to realize.........a lot of RUNWAY MODELS go on Instagram and edit pictures. A lot of them. A LOT OF THEM.

bri thomas - Day ago
Because their job is not reliant on Instagram they can say what they want about “Instagram pictures”. They aren’t going to admit that a few of their colleagues post edited pictures regularly but....................... digress

The plastic surgery she’s so “against” it’s so sad how she thinks she’s being body positive by saying plastic surgery is not okay and making people on her insta think she’s never had any and how someone could be so “beautiful” but to me having plastic in your face is ugly.

Not everyone can be an IG model. It's not just taking a bunch of pictures and being seen a couple times. It's keeping people in your sphere of influence and having your audience buy into the look and lifestyle. Not everyone has the tenacity to keep it up.
I think both IG and runway models make big sacrifices to maintain their reach. It's unfair to dismiss the efforts of one group because of the other. In some cases, Instagram models are serving the function of catalog models in an increasingly digital world where small businesses have global audiences.
Harry Williams
Harry Williams - 11 hours ago
Wrong. Anyone can be an Instagram "model". All you need is caked on makeup, filters, and photoshop. That's why Instagram "models" are UGLY without makeup and all the fakery. Runway models are beautiful and have charisma both on and off camera.

The main difference is that one group has to work to have a nice body the other just eats twinkies all day. except the Asian chick, bravo to her.

Anyone can be an Instagram model. Just have big boobs and big butt and wear a bikini. There you go. Buy the butt or boobs if you don’t have any.

Of course, anyone can be an Instagram model, that's why they're all ugly without makeup, photoshop, and filters.

The issue that was brought up about the instagram models doing it for free and that taking away from the professional models, also applies to musicians... Like here in Finland for example people hand you 50 euros for a 3 hour gig, and if you complain they just get someone less professional who wants to do it "for fun" and it's undermining the musicians who do it to bring food on the table.

Mariam: I'm against plastic surgery and photoshop

Tbh what is the point of having them stand and sit over and over again? Just have then sit, make them raise their hands if they agree, then start the conversation.

Runway midels use factune and they retouch photos aswell. Just like instagram. In my opinion both worlds should collide. Its all and the same. They both overlap amd cross over at one point or another. Each needs to start branching off.

Wrong. Runways models have Charisma, Instagram "models" don't. Runway models have natural beauty and don't rely on caked-on makeup, photoshopping their ass, extreme filtering of photos, and plastic surgery like Instagram "models" do.

What I learned from this video: you don’t have to be pretty or attractive to be an IG model. There’s still hope for us unattractive folks.
