I think Crystal is a great model and deserves all the work and attention. However, call me cynical but it seems a bit hypocritical that she is getting much more attention as a "plus-size" model now that she's far less plus-size.

It seems like at this point in time employers are able to take the easy way out, enjoying the trend and attention for being daring and employing a token "plus-size model", without actually dealing with featuring variously shaped women.

That said, there is slow but sure improvement in the industry.
It will take time.
( PS, this isn't weight-talk, not inviting it either. )

^It's funny that you say that because I really noticed her at Chanel so I came to look at her thread and I was met with quite a surprise because I didn't even realise she was a plus size model!
I am not blind-of course I noticed that she was curvier than the other girls, but plus size seemed a strech!
Anyway google images produced some of her previous work and she was considerably larger a while ago wasn't she? I guess plus size means anything "above" the average model....
She is quite the beauty!

I think she's beautiful. I'm happy for her success, and I thought she looked great at the Chanel resort show.

^It would have only drawn more attention to Crystal and not the clothes she was modeling. If you model for Chanel most of the time you don't smile, true?

I love her look in editorials, she's got such a fierce but stunning face
but I'm not so sure about her runway look, she always looks tired...

I'm really glad to see she's toned up a bit. Shows that you can embrace your natural shape AND lead an active lifestyle.

Yeah! Absolutely! She did lose her weight, no doubt, and it's a pity a little bit... But I love pics with Gary Dakin!

I think she looks great! I'm glad to see a middle-ground, more average sized person (not straight-size, not plus-size) model. Although, it is a little disheartening that someone with such a lovely figure (and not exactly plus-size) gets that label. What does that mean for truly plus-sized women? What will their label be?
