Video: Crystal Renn Explains Her Weight Loss on the Today Show


This morning Crystal Renn went on the Today show to talk about the photos of her in a charity T-shirt that she says were Photoshopped thinner by the photographer. Renn — who hardly looks plus-size in this segment — begins by acknowledging that she has lost weight since she recently started an exercise routine after "seven years of being in recovery" from anorexia. However, she says the retouching on the photos taken by Nicholas Routzen whittled her frame down from a size 10 to a size 2. She says she has no reason to even want to look that way, since industry bigwigs including Karl Lagerfeld, Carine Roitfeld, and Cindi Leive have told her not to lose weight. Hear what she thinks of the modeling industry's plus-size-versus-straight-size labeling in the video.
