CRYSTAL HEADS TO RIO WITH CHOO
The fabulous Crystal Renn is the new face of Jimmy Choo Spring Summer 2011 campaign (replacing Amber Valletta).
For Spring Summer 2011 Choo heads to Rio. Its tropical climate, glamorous beaches and characters, sun-bleached colours and wild carnival nights inspire a collection of hot hues, vibrant fabric mixes, and scaling heel heights.
Add to the line-up a cocktail of Jimmy Choo DNA – animal print, exotic python, sparkling jewels and feel the summer sun.
This is a great coup for Renn who started her modeling career in high fashion at the age of 14 after being spotted by a professional scout in her hometown in Clinton, Mississippi.
She was told she would need to lose almost a third of her total body weight if she wanted to become a model. This extreme weight loss eventually triggered a health crisis, causing her to reassess her diet and exercise habits.
After gaining 70 pounds (32 kg) and re-emerging as a U.S. size 12, she was re-marketed by her agents as a plus-size model. Renn has authored a book, 'Hungry: A Young Model's Story of Appetite, Ambition and the Ultimate Embrace of Curves', about her experiences in the fashion industry in relation to her several body type transformations.
Love! She looks amazing.
(Shout out to Sassi Sam for the heads up)
