It might have taken you a minute but did you figure it out? It’s Zac Posen muse, Crystal Renn!
The modeling chameleon took her hair and eyebrows from a dark brunette to stark platinum blond. “People can’t believe the transformation. I had black hair and now I have white hair,” Renn told People Magazine. “That’s what’s so exciting. I wanted to do something different. I wanted to show up as a different canvas at a shoot. It’s a very extreme look but very beautiful. Though it’s nothing conventional.” Renn debuted the look with Posen and Coco Rocha at the New Yorkers for Children spring event, called “A Fool’s Fete.”
But it seems that this drastic change has not been in vain. “It’s a challenging look,” she said, “but what’s wonderful is it’s something that photographs beautifully.” And she’s not lying! Here’s a shot of her for the February 2010 issue of Italian Vantiy Fair shot by Ruven Afanador.
What do you think? Are you a fan of the new look? I’m personally a bit more concerned that she’s looking a bit… gaunt. Or maybe it’s just me.
