Crystal Renn: The Bridge Model

April 13th, 2010


Crystal Renn for Joe Fresh Style, LG Fashion Week March 2010Size 12 model Crystal Renn was recently in town for the Joe Fresh Style LG Fashion Week show and it caused quite a stir. She opened the show. She closed the show. She was touted in the press release before the show. Interesting.

(Note: Hey Joe – love your generous straight sizing but plus-sizes coming soon? Pretty please?)

I have been fascinated with the press and coverage following her appearance. This show (other than charity ones) was the first one in which I have seen a model get rounds of applause – often times an outfit is cheered but rarely, especially in Toronto, is a model greeted with clapping. This speaks volumes of the shifting perceptions in the fashion industry.

I love the fact that a larger model’s photo & story was splashed across the world’s newspapers and magazines. Or the fact that her presence allowed great beauty & hair stories to be written featuring a curvy model
