Right Said Fred

Plus-Size Model Crystal Renn Struts Her Stuff on the London Catwalk

by Violet Moon Gaynor

Once again, designer Mark Fast broke the long-standing, and often unhealthy, rules of fashion by sending plus-size models down his runway today in London.

Last season, in a much-publicized move, Fast booked size 10-14 models in addition to the standard size zero. For fall 2010 he continued to prove his point: chic clothes are chic clothes, no matter your size.

Proving this perfectly was the stunning size 12 model Crystal Renn (right), who wore two looks in the designer's show today (in stark contrast, the super-skinny Anouck Lepere (left) closed out the show). Soon, Fast's signature clingy knits will be available to all at Topshop stores.

What do you think, do these show-everything styles work for size 0-16?

(Does it matter that their faces look the same?)

I don't think the clingy dress really does her justice. She looks like she's been stuffed in and the seems are struggling to hold together.
