Crystal Renn Exposed
by Kate Van Raden
Here some random single shots, shoot out-takes and other miscellaneous work of the stunning Crystal Renn. This raven haired siren just can’t help but leave a strong impression on any mere mortal that meats her piercing gaze. She poses nude with the ease and comfort of any woman, of any size that truly loves and embraces her body. I feel a strong pulling attraction to images of this model because of the ‘growth’ the represent for women in fashion around the world, and because this model understands the purpose of her work…to become the energy of fashion within the clothes and images, and to lend her tremendous beauty to them so that the audience is drawn in, captivated and wants to participate. That is what the fashion industry is. At it’s best and most artistic, that is what fashion photography creates; a fantasy of beauty, power, sexuality etc… that the consumer literally ‘buys’ into. For me, Crystal is the epitome of what a model should be. A real 10, if you will (and by that I don’t mean a size 10 because, come on, this beauty is so much bigger than her dress size).
