crystal renn, arguably the world’s most gorgeous “plus size” model, is featured in chanel’s fall 2010 ads. (p.s., she’s a size 10.)
there has been a lot of chatter today that lagerfeld is taking a chance on renn – some people have expressed shock that lagerfeld would feature a plus size model.
we’re sort of thinking there’s nothing shocking about this ad except that they’ve decided to only show renn from the shoulders up.
what do you think? do you think progress has been made in the fashion industry since chanel is using a “plus size” model in their fall ads? do you think this is shocking, even after chanel featured renn in their cruise runway presentation this summer?
