        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.

            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.

                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.

                                    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.

                                                      It's getting worse now. We now have people who think just because they have muscles and stand in front of a mirror, that they are "athletes".

                                                        I feel like some of these comments are somewhat unfair towards the ig models. People always associate attractiveness with positive traits while the less attractive with negative traits. I read the comments, and never really felt the ig models were ever really mean, petty, or jealous. Maybe there were times where they felt they must defend their jobs or positions, or wanted clarification on the runway model stereotypes we've all heard. The purpose of this show is to have a discussion, sometimes that may get heated or get awkward, but I never felt the ig models weren't being respectful to the runway models and vice versa.

I'm an Asian dude now living in Europe, both Asian and European girls have curves and flat body types, you just have to get the Genetics, curves are not inclusive to any race.

                                                            Victoria really should’ve sat down when they asked the question if they think what they do will effect younger people. Like she literally just sat after

                                                              I hate how professional models explain their industries limitations like they were facts. You have to be lean to do that job, because you have to fit in sample clothes.. it's no one's fault. But why are samples so small in the first place!?!!?! and we get to do that job because we are slim, and like professional athletes, you have to have a certain body type to perform.. but again, this is what is expected from them, not physically required like a sport. Instagram models are using filters, so they have it easy… !%@& that! professional models have a whole crew of photoshoppers behind them. All types of models are the same; useless... %@!& this industry.. and Tyra Banks too!

                                                                                      You want to spread positivity but photoshop your face and body because it looks good?? Hmmm and people would think that image is natural and they would have to be like that as well...Also so many of the insta models have pictures of literally just boobs and big butt... It's not even natural or give positive body image

                                                                                      • Jazmin Escamilla

                                                                                        It's sad that Instagram models promote fast fashion. It pollutes out environment and wastes resources because the clothes will be thrown away. They should address this. But without the promotions instagram models wouldnt exist.
