Not-plus-sized plus size model Crystal Renn is featured in the new Chanel campaign, and the ladies at Fashionista caught up with her to find out her reaction:
“I’m absolutely freaking out,” she told us. “Working with Chanel has been my dream forever. As long as I’ve been working as a model I’ve been thinking about Chanel and working towards Chanel and this campaign is the proudest moment of my life.”Also: "Karl is a genius. He’s a Virgo so we’re compatible and we got on really well.” That is all.
