I first came across this video in 2007. I was 15, and at this time I was beginning to accept myself. I was looking for someone who would inspire me, alas I found Crystal Renn. I first saw Crystal when she began modelling for Simply Be, she was featured in the Anna Scholz collection, and I was blown away by her sheer beauty. So I began to search for anything I could find on Crystal, then one day, I found a video of her, and her message was the same as it is today, love your curves!

Now, before you say :
"Crystal isn't plus-size!!"
I am aware of that, that doesn't change the fact that, I admire for who she is, and not her size. Yes, she's lost a considerable amount of weight, but she is still a fiercemodel! How can we, as the 'plus-size community', judge Crystal, because she's lost weight? Aren't we asking people not to judge us about our weight? (just a thought)
Plus-size or not, she is one of my favorite models of all time and always will be.
