Apparently, Karl Lagerfeld picking anyone over a size 2 for a Chanel show is a pretty big deal.
Plus-size model Crystal Renn walked the Chanel Cruise 2011 runway show in St. Tropez for the first time on Monday.“Each girl was cast because of her sense of individuality,” Lagerfeld said enthusiastically.
Andre Leon Talley even noted that having Renn in the show could be seen as "groundbreaking". "Lagerfeld had cast the show with a slightly more curvaceous model named Crystal Renn, not seen on any Chanel catwalk before," Talley explained. "This in itself was groundbreaking for the house, but there was also the return of personality models encouraged to be themselves instead of robotic look-alikes."
To be honest, I'm still not seeing the "plus-size" in this pictures… Size 12? Don't think so.
