I-don’t-know-why-we-still-call-her-plus-size model Crystal Renn walked for Chanel’s 2011 Cruise Collection in St. Tropez – and why is this a big news? Because a while back, Chanel’s head designer and creative director, Karl Lagerfeld said:
“No one wants to see curvy women. You’ve got fat mothers with their bags of chips sitting in front of the television and saying that thin models are ugly.”
But… (via Jezbel):
Since then, Kaiser Karl shot a story for V Magazine’s spring 2010 issue, which included mostly plus-size models. Though Crystal Renn was featured in the magazine, Lagerfeld’s shoot was with undeniably curvy burlesque performer Miss Dirty Martini. (Crystal Renn was shot alongside Jacquelyn Jablonksi by Terry Richardson.) Why would Unkle Karl, who has made no secret of how much he hates fat, hire Crystal Renn to walk on his runway?
Maybe because Crystal lost a lot of weight? Remember when Crystal looked like this?
