Crystal Renn, Size 16, Struts her stuff During London Fashion Week
Once again, designer Mark Fast broke the long-standing, and often unhealthy, rules of fashion by sending plus-size models down his runway today in London. Last season, in a much-publicized move, Fast booked size 10-14 models in addition to the standard size zero. For fall 2010 he continued to prove his point: chic clothes are chic clothes, no matter your size. Proving this perfectly was the stunning size 16 model Crystal Renn, who wore two looks in the designer's show today (in stark contrast, the super-skinny Anouck Lepere closed out the show). Soon, Fast's signature clingy knits will be available to all at Topshop stores.
Kudos to Mark Fast for creating a climate of "body diversity"
