    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

    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.

    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

    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.

    I wasn't very fond of the way Miriam spoke to the runway models. She came across as judgmental and prickly when they joined the conversation, when talking about photoshop she made it seem like they weren't allowed to have an opinion on it because they don't agree with it and get photoshoped even though they don't have a choice when it comes to editing. Too critical in my eyes

    Runway models have to perform live like walking in runway, or doing good in a photo shoot for a brand that only gives them few chances to perfect a shot. There is little room for mistake for them. Instagram models could always retake their photos if it doesn't look good, but they have to be careful because their job also relies on what is trending on the internet, and the comments from anonymous people could easily break their spirit.

    You can see a huge difference in the way they carry themselves and articulate their thoughts. Instagram models only need to LOOK the part for a MOMENT in a photo or short clip. The runway models have to BE the part ALL THE TIME, not just with how they look, but in the way they present themselves. You can't redo, put a filter on or Photoshop your runway walk.

    Fight me- it takes no talent to be an IG model. If IG was permanently deleted or faded into obscurity like MySpace, where would these “models” be?

    exactly, many professional workers are being mocked for working hard doing the things they love. unlike those laying around faking their physical appearance just to be accepted by digital numbers, comments and overly excessive compliments that rise their cocky virtual ego

    Mariam is against surgery, but she is the first person came to circle for nose surgery, also she clarified that she moved the bumb on her nose while surgery, so whats the point being against it?

    Why does Mariam care who gets cosmetic surgery? If your insecure about something, and want to change it, who is she to tell people they are wrong. Sometimes people are so insecure about certain parts of their body, and if they want to change it that’s okay.

  66. Eternity Telecome

    Eternity Telecome16 시간 전

    because she's a hypocrite if you said this to her face she'd tell you "Yeah I agree with you" just to win your favor. She's insecure about people disliking her for anything to the point that her opinion has no ground and contradicts itself. sometimes she'll nitpick your words that fits her agenda and immediately argues with you just like she did to the tall professional black runway model.
