And Crystal Renn’s world domination continues! After becoming the face of Jean Paul Gaultier, modelling for Chanel and dominating the international catwalks, Crystal has kicked off 2011 by bagging herself yet another coup: the Jimmy Choo S/S ‘11 campaign. Woots all round!
Filling the Choos of Amber Valletta (a more-established model who’s fronted the campaign for the last few seasons) is a may-jah triumph for Ms Renn and doesn’t she look super foxy? We say YES! The 70’s-inspired colour-block shots by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin (aka: the legendary photographers who also shot her for the JPG campaign) show the raven-haired glamazon draped in the super-brand’s latest accessories, from animal print totes to mega platforms.
So - question of all questions - will the Choo campaign stir up another torrent of controversy? It’s no secret the model’s been surrounded by skinny-scrutiny since her much-speculated weight loss and the high-waisted pant-shorts she’s sporting, plus the close-up on those tighter-than-tight leather trousers, may well attract criticism... But here at Grazia Daily, we’re giving Crystal three cheers for doing a grand job, whatever her size. And she looks more healthily normal than skinny minny, no? Besides, this is one lady who knows how to flaunt the confidence of someone who’s found satisfaction with their body - and amen to that!
