Last Friday Jezebel ran a post headlined, “Crystal Renn’s Agency Says She’s A Size 2.” Which is weird because Renn’s agency, Ford, has always been very forthcoming about her size, and the last time we checked in with them about Renn, she was an eight.
The piece goes on to cite an interview Renn did for Plus Model Radio radio in which she said, “Because of my size currently, I straddle this line between the two worlds–I guess you could say I’m a plus size straight size model. I am four inches smaller than a plus size model and four inches bigger than a straight size model.”
So we checked in with Renn‘s agent at Ford who confirmed that though she has dropped weight over the last year after picking up hiking and exercising again after recovering from her eating disorder, she’s a six/eight, not a two. “There was an error in the initial printing and it is being rectified,” Gary Dakin, Renn’s agent told us. “She maintains a 37-38 hip.”
So maybe we can just leave it at this for now: Renn is a great model who is passionate about what she does and open about her size, which fluctuates like most women.
“If people have truly followed her message, it is about acceptance and beauty at any size,” Dakin told us earlier.
