Carré Otis published her memoir, Beauty Disrupted, in 2011 with HarperCollins Publishers. She’s a regular guest blogger on Huffington Post, Mind Body Green, Elephant Journal, Patheos, and The Conversation. She’s also a contributing writer for Vogue Australia. She’s passionate about the dangerous impact subversive media-messaging has on our culture-especially our young women-but also enjoys writing on topics related to health, nutrition, yoga, relationships, sexual intimacy, mind-body connection, and spirituality. As a world famous model in the 80s and 90s, Carré grew increasingly concerned about unfair labor practices and poor working conditions in the modeling industry and has since become an advocate for young women in and out of the industry.
She’s on the Advisory Board of The Model Alliance, a non-profit industry group working to establish fair labor standards for models in the U.S., as well as an Ambassador for National Eating Disorders Association. She’s been featured on numerous nationally-televised programs, magazine publications and internet platforms offering her unique insight into the business of beauty and the high price it demands. Carré’s strong commitment to helping others reclaim physical and emotional health, develop positive body image–fulfill and empower themselves in all areas of their lives–is what makes her one of the most powerful and inspiring voices for change in the world today.
