Crystal Renn in Chanel Ad

I came across this Chanel ad, of the beautiful Crystal Renn, on the über fab Madison Plus blog. This ad, according to The Cut, is being used for a store reopening on Spring Street in New York. While many question whether Renn is still considered a plus-size model, The Cut is questioning why they decided to crop out her body. It’s a valid point, being that Jean Paul Gaultier ad’s included her entire body in his fall campaign.

What do you think?

Is this a big deal or are some making a big deal out of nothing?

Inspiration & Beauty

I just wanted to take a second and say thank you to the fearless and confident women out there, who don’t care what society thinks of their size.The models who started it all.

Those who could care less if you call them curvy, thick, chubby, fat, or plus-size; but rather see it as a compliment.

The women who know that the inside is just as important as the outside.

You who celebrate the beauty of your body every day.

You inspire me.

Models with Curves: Kate Dillon

Kate Dillon…you are quite the inspiration. Don’t believe me? Take a peek at this video on the Vogue Curvy site. Loving the video btw.

She’s been modeling for 20 years? Wow! Kate looks better than any average 19-year-old model on the runway.

I firmly believe that what makes you sexy and beautiful is not the size of your body or the colour lipstick you have on. What really makes you sexy is what you project, your confidence, and your self awareness, having a great sense of humour and being really smart.“-Kate Dillon

With confidence, poise, and beauty on her side…who wouldn’t want to be like her?

True Beauty: Emme

In 1994, People Magazine named model Emme, one of their ‘Most Beautiful People.”
Looking forward, she says, “to the day when we don’t put people down because of their size,” Emme sometimes lectures at high schools near her Leonia, N.J., home. Her message: “Don’t kill yourself trying to change your body. Change the way you think about your body.”-People Magazine

Obsessing over this photo of Crystal Renn in Elle Canada’s January 2010 issue. You’ve probably already seen it, but I just had to post it again. Love…love…love the champagne, the big hair, and the cuff she’s wearing. I want to be like her when I grow up.
