Karl Lagerfeld has just signed on Crystal Renn for the latest Chanel ad campaign.
Lagerfeld is well known for his distaste for curvy women, saying only fat people complain about skinny models and no one wants to see curvy women on runways.
Why is that odd?
Renn is known for her outward struggle in the modelling world, having had anorexia when starting out and now, a voluptuous woman, she works as a plus size model.
(On the runway for Jean Paul Gautier)
She has written a book about her struggles and now is one of the most famous plus size model, the only plus size model ever to appear on a Harpers Bazaar cover, she has also been on 4 international Vogue covers and editorials in Elle to name a few.
Shocking, but moving forward I guess, all props to Lagerfeld for recognising beauty when he sees it.
You cant say this woman isn't attractive!
