Real live cellulite…in lights!
Crystal Renn is an extremely successful plus size model, who has been featured in every fashion rag out there, but the May 2009 of Harper’s Bazaar marked her first editorial in an Australian high fashion magazine.
“What is truly spectacular about this editorial is that they have highlighted Crystal Renn’s curves. Not skimmed, not flattered, but HIGHLIGHTED. It’s freakin’ amazing,” according to Corpulent
And there’s more! According to NY Post Page Six, there will be more normal women featured in the fall issues of Glamour magazine after the frenzy over this picture knocked the editors into reality.
As for the brainwashing of American women, Kate Harding says it best on Jezebel;
“People, I have written half a book about body image, including a chapter on media bullshit, and countless posts about how Photoshop turns uncommonly beautiful women into inhumanly beautiful women. Yet until I saw that picture, it seriously never dawned on me that Crystal Renn might have lumpy thighs in real life. That’s how powerful the brainwashing is.”
She’s got it, I’ve got it, you’ve got it.
When will we get it through our thick skulls that THIS is just another wonderful part of being a woman?
Crystal Renns book Hungry will be available tomorrow, September 8, 2009 online and in stores.
