Last night, the American Ballet Theater rolled out the red carpet for its fancy 2013 Opening Night Fall Gala–and, it would seem, the same top models in town for Tuesday night’s Angel Ball were still around (or they just really love ballet). Also, everyone–including Sigourney Weaver, Crystal Renn, and Robyn Lawley–was dressed to the nines. More
Topic: Crystal Renn
We have covered so many Robyn Lawley goings on over the last few years–we first saw her on Vogue Italia’s landmark plus size cover (which still draws groans and gushing praise in equal measure), then she started nabbing solo covers left and right. A straight size lingerie campaign followed and an even landmark-ier campaign spot as the first plus-sized face of Ralph Lauren. Through it all, she’s handled the bullshit with grace and poise.
But as famous as she is among fashion bloggers and people who follow the modeling industry, Lawley has been completely ignored by men’s media. More
Most sizes over a 4 aren’t represented regularly in the industry, and I suppose it would just be nice to look up at a billboard one day and see a woman whose figure resembles like my own thanks to an excellent suggestion by Crystal Renn. More
The amfAR Gala To Kick Off Fall 2013 Fashion Week went down last night and, naturally, a bunch of famous fashion folks showed up (and Lindsay Lohan). Considering the attendees, we were surprised to find that the red carpet looks were almost remarkably bad. Let’s take a tour. More
First of all, let’s give a big high five to Agent Provocateur for casting Crystal Renn in their latest campaign. Though Renn may seem tiny, she does exist in the strange, seemingly empty world between “straight” and “plus” size models–which is to say, her presence still represents positive change in an industry that desperately needs it. Also, she is super hot.
She’s back! More
We’re getting more of a Lara Stone vibe than usual. More
Before the allegations of insensitivity toward mental illness flood in, take a look at this unsettling spread by Steven Klein for Interview. More
That Crystal Renn sure is one heck of a chameleon. Just a few weeks ago, she was a brown haired bikini babe in Sports Illustrated‘s
cheesecake swimsuit issue, and now she can be seen looking all otherworldly and pixie-ish on one of W Korea’s March covers. She looks great here, but some people aren’t happy with how thin she’s become. More
Kate Upton has the Sports Illustrated cover–the undisputed holy grail for swimsuit/lingerie models. But people can’t stop calling her fat. And sloppy. And worse. More
There’s a big to-do over Kate Upton‘s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue cover because–get this–Upton isn’t a “loose 2.” She might even be a 4 (which, sadly, doesn’t stop people from being horrible). Dubious victory though that may be, there was another surprise in store… Crystal Renn also made the issue! More
The Model Alliance launched last night at New York’s Standard Hotel to an unsurprisingly model-studded crowd. TheGloss came along for a few reasons: 1) we are unapologetic modelizers and wanted to gawk at attendees like Crystal Renn, Victoria’s Secret Angel Doutzen Kroes and host Coco Rocha, 2) and we care very much about the Alliance’s mission, think they’re doing something important.
