CQ Watch: Crystal Renn speaks out about her size
With all the videos that we do post on Catwalk Queen, this is one you really ought to watch. Despite her weight loss in the past year, Crystal Renn answers her critics in this frank interview she has given to the Ford Models blog. While rehashing the moments she spent at Chanel and with Karl Lagerfeld, Renn also sets the record straight on the outcry over her changed body, being labelled a plus size model and recovering from anorexia.
She explains: "At this point in my life I would have to have another eating disorder to live up to [the plus size] expectation. I had anorexia ultimately because someone else set the standard for me and I wanted to follow it. And if I followed what the public wanted from me or what the media wants from me I would be doing the same thing - I would have a binge eating disorder."
