Plus-size model Crystal Renn posed for the last issue of V, its first ever "Size Issue." She appears again in the next issue coming out next month. Above you see her in the Smyth Hotel in Tribeca in an Agent Provocateur bra and Dolce & Gabbana briefs. We've previously complained that whenever fashion magazines decide to shoot plus-size models, they photograph them either naked or close to it (Glamour is also guilty). But this shot aside, not so for this issue.
Renn also appears as a Spanish flamenco dancer in a spread with V's 15-year-old model-search winner, Emma Dumont, and VMAN's model-search winner, Rico Nieves. And look at all the clothes she has on! You hardly notice she's considered "plus-size." And we love how her expression says, "Do I really have to rub up on these children?"
