Watch out for Crystal Renn.

I was sitting in the Kool Nails waiting room on Whyte Ave flipping through the pleasant spread
of glossy magazines when I picked up Elle Canada's July 2009 issue. I was ecstatic to stop on a page with a gorgeous, curvacious woman staring up at me with sultry dark eyes. Her name is Crystal Renn, a plus size model who, in one photo shoot, is breaking today's dangerous fashion industry standard.
Renn knows all about the pressures of the industry and after going through a major health crisis at age 14 when modeling agencies told her she needed to lose one third of her total body weight, she decided enough was enough. Renn gained 70 pounds to reach a healthy weight and rebranded herself. She's now one of the world's most successful plus-size models.
I give big kudos to Elle for the gorgeous fashion spread featuring Renn. I can actually have a realistic sense of what the clothes would look like on me. Keep up the realism Elle!
