Product Details


“Cameron Russell’s How to Make Herself Agreeable to Everyone is an unforgettable book. Fiercely intellectual, deeply vulnerable, and unapologetically honest, Russell reads through the layers of gender, race, capital, and exploitation in the fashion industry. Through her personal journey, she unpacks how inheritances, commitments, and dreams can both inspire and distort our paths. A voracious reader and critical thinker, Russell reveals the complex dance of an industry that punishes even as it rewards. Her story of being a supermodel and groundbreaking activist is particular, but the lessons she shares apply to us all. She teaches us how to move away from being accomplices to our own suffering and toward being loving witnesses for one another. I highly recommend this powerful work.”—Imani Perry, National Book Award–winning author of South to America

“A unique and honest perspective on the fashion industry. Cameron Russell 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 Burns, founder and president of Every Mother Counts and model

How to Make Herself Agreeable to Everyone somehow exists before, beside, and after reckoning. I don’t know of a more blistering dismantling of what makes a so-called fashion and modeling industry. And that would have been enough. But the book artfully pivots toward repair and locates truths in the actual bodies, experiences, and imaginations of those who hold the clothes up. Craft matters here. Cameron Russell’s writing, and its audacious scope, will become malleable legend.”—Kiese Laymon, author of Heavy

“Russell’s story of finding her power and using it to uplift others—from workers’ rights to climate justice—holds lessons for us all.”—Ayana Elizabeth Johnson, co-founder of Urban Ocean Lab and the All We Can Save Project

“In an image-obsessed era that reduces women to—or encourages us to reduce ourselves to—our bodies, Russell offers young women, especially, a way through.”—Peggy Orenstein, New York Times bestselling author of Girls & Sex

“Cameron affirms that fashion can be a space and a tool for liberation.”—Geena Rocero, model and author of Horse Barbie

“A sharp, provocative memoir about an evergreen topic.”—Kirkus Reviews
