Model of the Moment

Crystal Renn

"It's simply bizarre that 'normal'
is the new overweight."
-New York Magazine

As a plus sized supermodel and Author of her book 'Hungry' Crystal Renn, is fastly becoming one of the most talked about and most wanted model in the world-and get this-she isn't starving herself...she's normal!  Standing 5'9" and a healthy size 12 she is the change that so many people want to see in the fashion Industry.  She's giving people the power and confidence to love their bodies and love themselves the way they are.  It's really a breath of fresh air knowing that the pressure of being thin in our weight-obsessed culture is finally starting to drop!
Gracing the covers of countless magazines such as Vogue, Glamour, Elle, and Harper's Bazaar and working with the top brands in fashion such as: D&G,  Jean-Paul Gaultier, and Torrid-which I'm sure you've seen while walking through the mall.  I know I'm stating the obvious here but Crystal is gorgeous, and as a thin person myself I envy her beauty and confidence.  She shows young girls everywhere that you don't have to be thin to be beautiful which has been the idea of perfection for the past decade.

It's unfortunate that my summer is only a short 3 weeks because I have yet another book added to my summer reading list.  Renn's first book, Hungry: A Young Model's Story of Appetite, Ambition and the Ultimate Embrace of Curves, was co-authored by Marjorie Ingall and released on September 8, 2009.  At an early age Crystal Renn dreamed about being a model but it it seemed nearly impossible as a size 16 at the age of only 14. Determined to make her dream a reality she started to diet and lost 40lbs in only a month, the turning point to anorexia and the start of her 4 year journey through the fashion industry and the fight to get her life back.  A great insight into the pressures of being a model in the fashion industry.  She went to hell and back and isn't afraid to share it with the that's a woman!
