Crystal Renn appears on the cover of the June 2010 issue of American Glamour alongside Alessandra Ambrosio, and Brooklyn Decker. The headline to the cover story photographed by Matthias Vriens-McGrath in St. Barts declares, “Sexy! We’ve got the best swimsuits for every body…Size 2, Size 12, Whatever!”
Crystal leads the editorial that turns the conventional swimwear feature on its head. We’ve seen Alessandra Ambrosio wearing next to nothing for Victoria’s Secret for years, we’ve seen the flawless Brooklyn Decker in Sports Illustrated‘s Swimsuit Edition, but seeing plus model Crystal kick off the story wearing a Zimmermann one-piece and Christian Roth sunglasses in an unpatronizing manner is an act heretofore unseen. What’s so striking about the Glamour cover story is not that it’s not a mere reprise of the “size issues” that have done the rounds of fashion magazines of late, but that Crystal’s right there with the best of the best no matter the size.
Asked by Glamour if there is indeed a movement to use models of all sizes, Crystal is emphatic in responding, “I absolutely believe so. Even Prada showed curvier models this spring.” And why not? If Crystal, Alessandra, and Brooklyn can share the odd cover of Glamour, then the possibilities are limitless.
