Crystal Renn in 2009 and in 2011
It’s almost as high-profile as her modelling career… And now Crystal Renn’s weight has come under the spotlight again after she appeared on American television.
The former plus-size model was quizzed about her slimmer figure, and revealed she had been ‘every single size in women’s fashion’.
Speaking to ET this week, Crystal said, ‘I've been a double-zero, children's clothes, at 95 pounds, and I've been all the way up to a size 16 and everything in between. [Now I’m] a 6, 8, sometimes a 10 depending on what designer I'm wearing. And that's an interesting place to be in fashion, where extremes are the norm.’
Crystal, who has walked for designers including Chanel, Jean Paul Gaultier and Zac Posen, shot to fame as a plus size model.
At the time she was a UK size 16… but is now an 8-10 after taking up hiking and yoga. She showed off her new figure last month at the premiere of Madonna’s film W.E in New York.
In a previous interview with Grazia, Crystal said, ‘I want the women who look up to me as a role model to know that I haven’t set out to lose weight… I’m trying to be who I am and not let anyone else dictate what weight I should be.’
