We love model Crystal Renn because she speaks her mind and knows where she’s headed. After going through the ups and downs of the modeling industry, Crystal wrote a book entitled, Hungry, published in 2010, where she candidly chronicled her tale of living and working with an eating disorder. It was only when she allowed herself to feel secure at her ‘‘natural weight’’ and became healthy again – in body and mind – that her career took off. Crystal says that when she’s done being in front of the camera she could see herself getting involved with “photography, creative directing, styling, acting”…but never committing to just one. She says a goal of hers would be to design a line of clothing with “body diversity in mind”. What’s her secret? “I’ve always believed that anything is possible”. You go girl!
