I would like to point out that Chantelle was the only IG model who didn’t overstate their follower count.

I love this show so much. It's all about the conversation even if there's no middle ground gained, it's open dialogue. People don't have open dialogue often without arguments two minutes in to it

It’s sad that these models seem to have no desire to be physically active. “I’m okay with photoshopping my body” like seriously if they took the time to go to the gym and be active I feel they wouldn’t have to feel they need to be photoshopped

Did they really have to choose the ugliest instagram models just to prove a point? The lines would be more blurred if they chose hotter insta hoes.

This comment section proving that genetics (runway) will always beat putting in effort (Instagram).

People literally congratulating attractive people for being attractive and insulting the less attractive people for not being as attractive.

I have nothing against ig models but how can they say they are body positive and natural advocate when they are okay with photoshop...???????
Like I get that they are trying to fix a problem but they are creating and justifying new problems in order to stay relevant.... it don’t make any sense sorry

I thought the runway models finna be egoistic and looking down on the “ influencer “ but... more like the opposite.

SOME of these “ Influencers “ are claiming they are all about influencing people to love themselves and everyone is beautiful in their own way blah blah but they get cosmetic surgery and use photoshop. Ngl Runway models are better as a influencer by serving as a role model to those who support them. ( edit: there’s nothing wrong with getting cosmetic surgery & photoshopping but aren’t they suppose to be influencing ppl that they are beautiful in their own way? Yet they’re fixing themselves in a unnatural process).

It's funny how these instagram models have such inflated egos, while the runway models blow them out of the water in terms of looks and personality, all while remaining calm and collected.

As a photographer, I have some sayings on retouching. Yes it is necessary, all photos you see are most likely retouched. Even though you may see like a birth mark or like a small mole, the skin is still smoothed and all temporary blemishes are taken out. And yes that part of the industry is changing, It will never go away.

The Instagram models dont think that anyone can do their job but they want to represent those who are "left behind" and not represented? It just shows its about self-image and insecurity.

Came here thinking the Runway models would be looking down on Instagram but oof it was almost the other way around. Completely turned off by them and their attitudes especially the one in the white clothes trying to attack the runway model. The runway people were so respectful and nice

When the ig models had a seat as an answer to “I can afford what I promote” I thought: that’s because it’s probably cheaper than what runway models promote

Gary is the type of dude who would pretend to read Thomas Pynchon on set. Reminds me of tryhard poser which is acceptable when you’re in your early 20’s but this dude is 35.
Zorya - Před 20 hodinami
i still think Instagram modeling is good because it gives consumers more options in terms of body types

I think the main point in the end is that they all could technically be ig models, but only 3 can be runway models. There is a lot of luck involved genetically with that, but also there's some sacrifice lifestyle-wise. I think there's a lot of beauty on that stage. Just do what you're meant to do people.

While I do think professional modeling is a very hard, much harder than Instagram modeling, I think there is something to be said for Instagram models being a sample size of more of our population. They grilled the Instagram models for retouching and filtering their photos when in the vast majority of professional shoots for models the photos are photoshopped so I feel they don’t have a leg to stand on in that debate. Also Instagram models have to actually build a platform; target people, create a community, and build a business based entirely on themselves that too takes a certain level of dedication and will power. Seems like both sides were a little stuck up towards the other during this interview. All stones and glass houses.

Instagram models acted as if they understood the actual modeling industry when they have never been in it. Instagram models are just as if not more harmful to young girls with reshaping and having the message that real girls have large boobs/butt

I often love to look at the comments to see who everyone is hating on the most, and then contemplate why they dislike that person so much. Sometimes it's valid, the person is quite irritating or rude, but other times it's pure judgement. In either case, I don't think it's okay to say half of the things you people feel bold enough to say, but to each their own I guess.
It's interesting that in a video about image, with people giving their own unfiltered, most humane thoughts and opinions about image, you guys feel the need to break them down or judge them for their honesty. Not everyone is going to be able to form the perfect sentence or say the right things all the time or even be coherent all the time. That's okay, we're all human. It's confusing. Give people grace.
As for comparing the runway models and Instagram models... they're from completely different worlds you know, from different parts of a spectrum of image promoters. I just think that instead of trying to diminish one group and say that the other is more valid, we should view them as they are, in their separate roles, and appreciate that. They're bringing different experiences to the table, and I personally enjoyed hearing about all of them.

Alizée, Gary and Chantella are so well-spoken! I loved the way they were very respectful of the others. The two other "instagram models" got on my nerves but that's just my personal opinion

Sorry not to put anyone down but the runway models understand professionalism and have respect and passion for what they do and you can see that. Omg the male runway model is actually gorgeous for one and for two, you can see the difference in elegance they have. Insta models are there for the social media users while actual runway models are there for the masses... idk just my opinion

Idk I think the IG models are more for attention and faking vs the supermodels

I'm not even gonna start about this girl who's supposedly against plastic surgery.
Trish - Před dnem
I guess this video shows the standard it takes to become a professional model. It takes someone with extensive attributes (such as self awareness, open mindedness, respect, composure, durability etc.) Whereas, just about anyone can become an instagram model. I guess this is why one side is more elegant while the other is just not.
I dont even mean to sound disrespectful but there ya go.
