Just as we'd suspected, plus-size model Crystal Renn walked in the Chanel Cruise 2011 show in St. Tropez yesterday. Karl Lagerfeld gave Renn three exits: the first in a fuchsia cardigan paired with a bleached denim mini-skirt and thigh-high black boots, the second in a black-and-white one-sleeve one-piece, and, finally, a sandy ruffled blouse, sash-belted, and paired with ankle-length loose-fit matching trousers. Check out the second and third looks after the jump.
"There’s something magical about Saint-Tropez," Lagerfeld told WWD. "It’s so easy, and it doesn’t require overcomplicated clothes. It’s not a bling-bling place, it’s a natural place."
Celebrity and boldface-name attendees included Diane Kruger, Leigh Lezark, Vanessa Paradis, and Elisa Sednaoui, all of who participated in a Chanel-organized petanque tournament the evening prior—which was won by Lezark, Olivier Zahm, and Andre (this all, according to Garance Dore, who was on a team with Zahm and Andre).
So much glamour! Swoon.
Renn had two other exits, one in cardigan denim skirt ensemble and one in a ruffled sand blouse-pant look:
