When Crystal Renn dyed her dark brown hair and signature dark bushy brows white blonde the immediate response from fans and fashion fanatics was not so enthusiastic. An example from one of our commenters? “That’s quite unfortunate.”
Of course, it didn’t help that Crystal inadvertently debuted her new blonde ‘do after some pics of her on vacation in a wetsuit swimming with dolphins hit the internet. But, as she told us, “I didn’t expect to have a fashion moment off of my vacation photos.” Since those photos hit she’s had many a fashion moment, including stepping out in a stunning Zac Posen number at the New Yorkers for Children benefit last week. At the benefit she told us she went blonde for “a project in the works” as well as just wanting a change and having a “Gemini moment.”
We figure this is the “project” Renn was referring to. She’s on the cover of Schön! magazine’s 17th issue, titled “We Are the Champions.” In it, Renn has an awesome editorial shot by Ellen von Unwerth where she sports a dramatic blonde ponytail and gets sporty sexy with weights, wrestles with some heavy chains (while topless of course), and gets all Katniss-y with a bow and arrow.
