life: crystal; learning to love herself

10 Sep

Crystal Renn’s lavish curves and intense Cherokee stare have appeared in Dolce & Gabbana campaigns and on the Chanel runway. A size 14, she is the first plus-size model to achieve such success, and, partly thanks to her,Marc Jacobs has recently announced the launch of a plus-size range. ‘Pant size does not equal beauty,’Crystal explains in her soft Mississippi drawl, dressed in leggings and a voluminous black shirt that, when she leans forward, exposes more than a hint of breast; glossy, raven curls spilling about her face. ‘Beauty exists on its own.’ Looking at these photos, we couldn’t agree more.

    She is ABSOLUTELY STUNNING. I love that they are bringing out a whole line of darker beauties, as well as a few more full figured!

      I agree . . . I think it’s the tipping point for the whole industry. Hopefully it’ll help fashion show the reality out there . . .
