How to Make Herself Agreeable to Everyone : 'A book of real power' - STYLIST, Best Non-Fiction Books of 2024 Hardback



The realities of the fashion industry exposed in this devastating account of the life of a successful supermodel. 'A unique and honest perspective on the fashion industry...

Cameron doesn’t just hold the door open for more voices from within fashion, she makes a compelling argument as to why they must be heard.' CHRISTY TURLINGTON BURNSScouted by a modelling agent when she was sixteen years old, Cameron Russell approached her job with scepticism.

She was a precocious and serious student with her sights set on college — not the runway.

But modelling seemed to offer young women like her access to wealth, fame, and influence.

Besides, as she was often reminded, there were 'a million girls in line' to replace her. A ferocious, visceral memoir, How to Make Herself Agreeable to Everyone chronicles how Russell learned to navigate the dizzying space between physical appearance and interiority, and making money in an often-exploitative system. ***'A book of real power.' STYLIST, Best Non-Fiction Books of 2024'Russell’s voice is steady and compelling throughout, offering young women, especially, a thoughtful and powerful way through.' PEGGY ORENSTEIN, author of Girls & Sex'Compelling, smart and insightful.' VENETIA LA MANNA, host of All The Small Things'Unforgettable...

Fiercely intellectual, deeply vulnerable, and unapologetically honest, Russell reads through the layers of gender, race, capital, and exploitation in the fashion industry.' IMANI PERRY, author of South to America
