For the haters, lovers, debaters: the formerly plus-size but not quite straight size and beautiful all over Crystal Renn is now modeling swimsuits for the J. Crew catalogue. And she looks amazing.

I know her weight loss is a huge disappointment to some supporters of fashion diversity, but Renn is radiant here and (unfortunate though it may be) her not-skeletal figure still represents a major shift in what makes a top model.

Though perhaps they aren’t quite ready to put her in a bikini (why not?), she embodies a fit, glowing kind of beauty that all clients–couture houses or commercial brands–would do well to employ.
