I don't know if I have mentioned it before but i'm not the biggest Crystal Renn fan (my favorite plus size model is newcomer Tara Lynn) and this photoshoot doesn't help that. I know a lot of other bloggers and plus size girls admire her but I just..don't. I love models of every shape and size, but we don't have to like models just because they're plus sized. Sidenote: Is Crystal even considered a plus sized model anymore? She walked the Zac Posen Spring 2011 Show on September 11th and looked tiny to me!
This shoot grabbed my attention but not in a good way. My first thoughts were "w.t.f" which was then followed by a couple of minutes of staring at my screen with my mouth open. I don't think this is her best work and i'm really disappointed that she agreed to work with Terry Richardson, the most overrated photographer in recent years - who also happens to be a sexist pervert. I think any woman with self respect would (and should!) stay away from him. Terry sticks to his usual theme of a model posing provocatively against a white wall, very exciting.
Model: Crystal Renn | Photographer: Terry Richardson | Stylist: Carine Roitfeld | Vogue Paris, October 2010
Yeah, the idea of squid sliding down someones throat is incredibly sexy, way to go Terry. I don't know what the exact message behind this is. A plus sized woman loves her food, women are pieces of meat (in Terry's eyes), Crystal trying to prove she doesn't have an eating disorder..who knows. She is styled beautifully which is the only positive thing I have to say!
What do you girls think?
