Hey curvy girls,

Today’s curvy conversation is about Crystal Renn’s photo for a nonprofit organization. I was reading the Ford Models blog and came across this photo of Crystal Renn shot by photographer Nicholas Routzen for his booster campaign for children and the arts. There is some controversy stirring over this photo for the obvious reason that Crystal looks super thin in this photo. Also, the photo in my opinion looks a little scary. The dark makeup, the hand on the mouth, doesn’t scream fashion for passion to me. The point of the photo is to also advertise the silk screen t-shirt Crystal is wearing.

 At this point Crystal should not even be considered plus size anymore. In my opinion I think that is what her agent is working towards. Why are plus size models getting smaller? It seems that they come into this business at a 12 or above and as they get successful they start to shrink. It has been said that Crystal is losing weight because she is an active girl, sorry, but, I do not believe that for one second. I believe as she is becoming more successful, designers are probably putting on the pressure to lose a little weight, and she is obliging them. Crystal is a beautiful girl which is no wonder why designers want her. However, this is not what the plus size woman looks like.

I thought you guys would like to discuss this photo amongst yourself. I want to read your thoughts. Don’t be shy, just be respectful.

Do you think Crystal is looking so thin these days do to an active lifestyle or is it to further her career as a model?
