Crystal Renn for Avant Garde Magazine

Crystal Renn the best known high fashion 'plus size model' for the Dutch magazine Avant Garde's November 2010 issue . The editorial was shot by Phillip Riches with gorgeous photos of the new york skyline from major heights. There has been talk lately on whether or not she is still large enough to be in the 'plus sized' category. Personally I think she is perfect but it can be rough to be a model at that size. She is too large to be a regular model but not quite large enough to be 'plus sized.' I'm reading her book (well i read half and started on another one but I've been meaning to get back to it soon) and she is actually really funny - not something I normally think of with supermodels although Im sure a lot of them have good personalities as well....
Either way this editorial was inspiring. She has been layered with dramatic makeup and colorless pieces from the A/W 2010 collections. My favorite look is, of course, the one with the burberry jacket. While this editorial isn't over the top or terribly over the top creative, it does have something about it that makes it stand out. Maybe its New York in the background, maybe its the dark lipstick, or maybe its just that I'm not used to seeing non-skinny girls in such high fashion shoots. The fit was good and I'm glad they didn't put her in anything overly tight as Mark Fast did on the runway. Either way, she rocked it and I hope to see her in more of the same coming up.
