Crystal Renn continues to be a hottie despite her weight loss and scores another amazing campaign. The beautiful 24-year-old model flaunts a slimmer figure in the new campaign for J.Crew swimsuits looking confident and radiant. Crystal sports one-piece swimsuits, but also bikini bottoms teamed with pretty cardigans. All the items she wears are flattering, showing off the new normal slender silhouette.
The former plus-size model rocks ’50s-inspired one-piece swimsuits with sweet polka dots and sculpting vertical stripes. Moreover, she smiles a lot, revealing a glowing, healthy look. Different accessories such as hats and sunglasses perfectly complete the overall aspect.
Besides this stunning and playful campaign, Crystal seems to have dominated the fashion world. She was also the face of Jean Paul Gaultier, modeled for Chanel and Zac Posen, and appeared in the Jimmy Choo spring/summer 2011 campaign looking glamorous and sexy.
Crystal admitted she once suffered from anorexia. Speaking about the eating disorder she had to face at the beginning of her career, when she was 14-year-old, Renn said:
“I had anorexia because ultimately, someone else set the standard for me and I wanted to follow it.” Then, after she turned 18, she started eating and changed her diet and habits, gaining weight and being re-marketed as a plus-size model. Renn wrote about her struggle in her 2009 memoir “Hungry”.
Still, after breaking-up with her husband, Gregory Vrecenak, Crystal once again decided to change her lifestyle. She adopted a special routine that included hiking and yoga and managed to lose weight. “I think I probably have a good relationship with the exercise that I do. I’m taking care. I’m just in a really good place. I do hiking. I do yoga, but nothing crazy, just in my house. It brings me peace,” she told New York Magazine.
Speaking about her weight loss, Crystal said: “I feel pressure – probably more from any place – probably from the public and the media. I think that by placing a title on my head, which is ‘plus-size,’ and then the picture that these people have created in their mind about what plus-size actually is, I’ve basically failed you just with that. Because I couldn’t possibly live up to that, and at this point in my life I would have to actually have another eating disorder to live up to that expectation.”
