Last year when browsing through the web, I came across this great article on Crystal Renn from the UK newspaper, The Guardian. It is a pretty amazing article, with a lot of insight into Crystal, her upbringing, struggles with weightloss and her current take on her current "fuller" figure. My favourite paragraph is as follows:
In my last blog, I wrote about V Magazine doing the Size Issue and a part of that is to compare designer-wear on different body types, they place Crystal in the same outfits as new Spring sensation, model Jacquelyn Jablonski. There is an obvious size difference there... but as I flick through the pages, I can't help but think Crystal looks prettier, healthier, sexier and far more feminine. Now, before anyone thinks that is me criticizing Jacquelyn, let me stop you there - I just like Crystal and her curves MORE is all I am saying.
Crystal Renn is a stunner. She has been used in campaigns by Evans and Torrid as well as been in many Vogue editorials and a cover girl for magazines like Harper's Bazzar (Russia) and Elle Italia. As you can see in this article by the New York Post, Crystal Renn is THE INSPIRATION for the V Magazine Size issue. That is amazing.
To read more about Crystal online - Wikipedia has a nice base article that compliments the links I have already posted... otherwise, if you enjoy paperbacks, why not pick up Crystal's book "Hungry".
