Victoria’s Secret Models — Without Airbrushing

A lot of work — and airbrushing — goes into modeling. Here are (from left to right) Alessandra Ambrosio, Crystal Renn and Brooklyn Decker posing for Victoria’s Secret. And in this shot, they’ve been caught without a whiff of airbrushing. Look how … normal they look (well, Renn and Decker, anyway). [FashionIndie]…

Crystal Renn’s Been Every Size — So What?

“I have been every single size in women’s fashion. I really don’t think anyone can say that. I’ve been a double-zero, children’s clothes, at 95 pounds, and I’ve been all the way up to a size 16 and everything in between. So to come to this place of being a 6, 8, sometimes a 10…

9 Pics Of Models Eating (Yes, It Does Happen!)

No woman in this day and age is exempt from the overwhelming pressure to be whippet thin. Most popular depictions of females and femininity are marked by protruding clavicles, razor hipbones, and legs like string beans. High fashion models of today are the worst perpetrators with many models bringing skeletons to mind. It’s no wonder…

Soapbox: Plus-Size Model Crystal Renn Is Thinner Now — So What?

No matter that in the real world women come in a bevy of shapes and sizes, in the model world, you’re either “regular” or “plus-size.” And for the past several years, model Crystal Renn has been at the top of the plus-size game. But Renn has been catching flack lately for a rather surprising reason:…

Crystal Renn Is Into Bondage

There is a magazine out there called Tush. That is the first important piece of business I would like to note. Also, model Crystal Renn looks surprised to be in a leather collar/leash type of thing, as photographed by Ellen Von Unwerth. Maybe she needs some S&M tips from Rihanna? [NYMag.com]…

Even The Fashion Industry Complains About The Beauty Standards Of The Fashion Industry

You and I aren’t the only ones wondering why “high fashion” fetishizes the gamine, undernourished look of 14-year-old girls fresh OTB from Belarus: recently, two insiders from the heart of the industry itself have vocalized their distaste for the fashion world’s embrace of the skeletal-thin female form. British designer Giles Deacon, who is the creative…

Crystal Renn Models For Zac Posen Pre-Fall, The World Wonders About Her Weight Again

We’re beginning to wonder if the size debate surrounding model Crystal Renn will ever die down. She’s been hailed a plus-size icon but keeps stunning audiences with her fluctuating weight. For her latest work, she modeled for Zac Posen’s pre-fall 2011 lookbook and can hardly be called plus-sized by these photos. We become more and…

Crystal Renn Gets Plastic Surgery For Vogue Paris

The last time we checked in with (former?) plus-sized model Crystal Renn, she was having an orgy with a plate of spaghetti. Now, she’s gone a few steps further down the weird trail with a new editorial in Vogue Paris — the December issue is guest-edited by designer Tom Ford — in which she play…

Would You Wear These: Prada Eyebrow Glasses?

Crystal Renn loves these Eyebrow Glasses from Prada’s fall/winter 2010 collection so much she’s going to turn them into her prescription glasses. We’ve been seeing a resurgence in the cat’s eye glasses trend; however, these are a real first. Playful, feminine and possibly a little snarky, these glasses could be really cute on the right…

Crystal Renn Explains Weight Loss

“In the past, I avoided exercise because it brought back terrible feelings. I wasn’t ready. And I was scared that maybe I was going to be addicted again. That’s a fear that goes through your mind, whenever you’re getting over an addiction or a disease like anorexia, yeah, I absolutely was worried. But then I…

Crystal Renn Eating In French Vogue: Gross Or Glamorous?

French Vogue’s 90th anniversary issue continues to shock. The editorials inside include this sure-to-inspire-debate series of plus-size model Crystal Renn gorging on squid, slathering herself in spaghetti, and putting away a plate of chicken. To up the controversy, the photographer is Terry Richardson. Personally, I like the photographs — I think they’re beautiful and sort…

Crystal Renn Dances In A Leotard

These days, posting about model Crystal Renn poses something of a conundrum. If we say, “She looks like she lost weight,” it seems as if we’re as preoccupied with her body size as all those who couldn’t stop crowing about her plus-sized-ness when she was a seemingly fuller-figured girl. In any case, we…

Crystal Renn’s Face—Not Body—Stars In New Chanel Campaign

Thanks to a few Photoshopping scandals and the still-hot debate about larger sizes in fashion, it’s nearly impossible to talk about Crystal Renn without talking body image. The plus-size/curvy/whatever-you-want-to-call-her model just landed this Chanel campaign, which shows only her face. For Renn, this work with the brand points to a positive shift in fashion aesthetics.

Would You Rather … Have Crystal Renn, Agyness Deyn, Or Heidi Klum’s Body?

Welcome to Would You Rather, a game in which we concoct hypothetical style dilemmas and ask you to choose which option’s worse.

It might not seem like it, but there is quite a bit of variance in model bodies. Take the following, for example: Crystal Renn (the “curvy” model), Heidi Klum (the ’90s swimsuit…

Crystal Renn Says Her Uber-Skinny Photo Was Photoshopped

If you get caught Photoshopping a beautiful, healthy, full-figured woman to look like a twiglet, you should have one of your fingers chopped off.

Today’s Lady News: Crystal Renn’s Agent Assures Everyone She’s Still A Size 10

But Renn’s agent at Ford models, Gary Dakin, confirmed Renn is a size 10 and is not trying to lose weight. It’s kinda weird that the…
