Crystal Renn in The Guardian

Crystal Renn is arguably the most well-known plus-size model right now. Of course, we all know by now what the fashion industry considers "plus". And Renn has been very open in talking about suffering from anorexia early in her career to maintain a super skinny figure. But here is Renn now looking fit, healthy and gorgeous in a spread for The Guardian:

Throughout the entire piece there is no mention of her size. In our opinion, it has to be a step forward when a mainstream publication gives several pages to an article featuring pictures of a lovely model without having to apologize (or worse, pat themselves on the back) for her measurements. But fashion politics aside (or maybe not!), what do you think of the pictures?!

I've always been a fan of plus-size models! There's a great site with many images of Crystal and other plus-size models here:

They're all gorgeous.

The site's forum also has thought-provoking discussions about body image and the media.

i love the clothes! This is totally my style and the classic tailoring is often missing in plus size clothes. I'd wear every piece!

I saw this in the paper and was like- OMG! As you said, I love that they used her and didn't make a song and dance about it, they just printed the pics and never said a word about her size. Perfect.
