Crystal Renn - Plus Size Super Model publishes her story

Crystal Renn has just published her book ,

“Hungry: A Young Model's Story of Appetite, Ambition and the Ultimate Embrace of Curves” .

You have probably seen Crystal even if you do not recognize her name. Her photos can be seen in French, Italian, German and American Vogue, Vanity Fair, Glamour and Elle Canada and Italy. Crystal Renn is a super model and the world’s highest paid Plus Size model.

Crystal has achieved great success in a world dominated by the ulta-skinny. She is a plus size beauty with a voluptuous and seductive demeanour.

In 2005 Jean Paul Gaultier chose Crystal to close his Paris runway show and escort him down the catwalk to take his bow. This is a huge honor for any model and a ground breaking one for Plus size models. Plus size models have not been presented on the Paris runways. The average model wears a size 0-2 where Crystal is a size 12-14. She made quite a statement, looked gorgeous and complimented Jean Paul’s couture exquisitely.

In her book she talks about her struggles with body image and weight. At 14 she was discovered by a modeling scout and told to loose weight. After struggling with anorexia during her early career she took time away and has come to terms with the size she is intended to be. As a curvy woman she has created an amazing modeling sensation and is causing quite a stir.

Crystal Renn is truly a beautiful woman and photogenic model. I think we will continue to see a lot of her. She is a super model and needs no further classification than that!

Quote from Crystal’s Time Magazine article
What do you hope other women will gain from this book?
      Women have come so far in the past 100 years. But what holds them back is lack of confidence and self-hatred. Those two things can affect every part of your life. I was at the lowest level you can be. It was only when I accepted myself that I managed to achieve [my goals] in life and work. Through this book, I want women to know that people in the [fashion] industry can relate to them too. Women struggle everywhere with their weight and their bodies, and no one talks about it. I wanted to speak for the unspoken.
