Size 2 or Size 12

Crystal Renn has for the most of her career been known as a plus sized model. Early on in her career she felt the pressure from agencies as well as the media to be very small. At the young and tender age of 14 when she was discovered by Ford models she was told she needed to lose weight to be successful and she became anorexic weighing only 95lbs.

Through out her career she said forget this and became who she really was a beautiful confident size 12 woman. She modeled all over the world and was all over magazines and cat walks.

Crystal Renn releases a book about her trials and tribulations of the modeling world entitled "Hungry: A young model's story of appetite, ambition and the ultimate embrace of curves" After her book came out year after year she started to slim down. She originally stated that at a size 12 she was healthy and liked her image. Becoming smaller she contradicted herself saying that she did it to be healthy.

Here is a before and after of her modeling career from the beginning to her peak.

Which Crystal Renn look do you prefer before weight loss or after?

  1. I prefer after, but she seems to be losing weight, because she doesn't look like she does on the picture above...x

  2. EURGH! Before! She had a niche...like Sophie Dahl! All plus size public figures are hypocrites. Acting like they are the antidote to a society over-consumed with thin images....*yawn* and then going on a mass diet and getting skinnier than the masses themselves.
    She's like every other model now...
