British model Binx Walton believes that models can have a negative effect on young people because it gives them dangerous beauty ideals to try to live up to. Binx comments that it isn't models who are to blame for this but she still worries about the impact. She also admits she isn't interested in the social media craze and wants to do "something real" when she's finished being a model.
She explained: ''In this industry, we're showing kids who to be. Being models, we're kind of planting things in kids' heads that aren't the best; wear make-up, stay skinny - and even though it's a job, and we're not trying to ruin these kids' lives, it does have an effect. ''I want to do something real once I finish modelling. I want to work with people who inspire me, not people who are caught up with this whole current air of social media bulls**t.''
The model previously landed a footwear collaboration with Superga and she commented that working with the brand was a big dream fulfilled for her: ''I have always wanted to explore other aspects of the industry. And I'm so lucky to have such an amazing brand supporting me on not just the model side, but also the creative, directing, and designing. Which is such a dream come true for me!''
