Curvy size 14 model Crystal Renn is in high demand at the moment, having already starred as the face of Jean Paul Gaultier’s campaign last month and now being cast by Karl Lagerfeld himself for the latest Chanel ads.
In the shoot, Crystal’s brunette locks are pulled up into a dishevelled Bridget Bardot-esque up-do and her shoulders are wrapped in a fur collar while topless male model Baptiste Giabiconi looks on in the background.
We can’t help thinking we’d love to see a bit more of Crystal’s curves but it seems Karl is keeping them under wraps for now. The outspoken designer has previously shunned plus-size models, telling a German magazine that no one wants to see curvy women.
It seems that Karl has changed his mind and we’re glad!
