12Love It or Leave It: Crystal Renn’s New Look

Yes, that’s Crystal Renn, former plus-size model and current … I don’t know. She’s a model, ok? You might be more familiar with the look that Crystal has had for the majority of her career: dark hair, not anything about the size thing. But this is a brand new Crystal Renn! It’s new! It’s edgy! It includes white eyebrows!

From People:

“People can’t believe the transformation. I had black hair and now I have white hair,” Renn tells PEOPLE. “That’s what’s so exciting. I wanted to do something different. I wanted to show up as a different canvas at a shoot. It’s a very extreme look but very beautiful. Though it’s nothing conventional.”

After undergoing multiple dying sessions to bring her hair color from mahogany to icy blonde, Renn admits, “It’s a challenging look. But what’s wonderful is it’s something that photographs beautifully.”

In fact, she’s already done one photo shoot as a tragic Marilyn Monroe figure, but Renn says she’s not going for the blonde beach babe vibe. “I’m not trying to conform to one certain look,” she says. “I look up to someone like Tilda Swinton. She’s the fashion icon. She experiments and that keeps life fun.”

So what do you think? Personally, I tend to favor darker hair (and don’t even get me started on the gingers), and the white eyebrows are a little startling, but I could see where this kind of look could photograph nicely. Plus, she said she looks up to Tilda Swinton, so there’s no real way I could say anything bad about her now.

And now you go! Here, I’ll even give you a close-up so you can check it out more closely:

    I’m all for white hair (and eyebrows!), but you need to be really edgy and funky to pull it off. She could do it, but I don’t dig the dress. If she wants to channel Swinton she needs to dress more imaginatively.

    In the 2nd picture she kinda reminds me of Arnold Schwartener in the Terminator!

    It’s editorial, that’s pretty much it. She needs some oil blotting sheets asap. I don’t get why some celebs can’t grasp that …

  4. meh says:

    She’s considered plus size NOW? or she WAS plus sized? She looks thin as hell…if that’s plus sized, I’m totally floored.

      She’s not plus size anymore, but she’s still a little too big for a lot of straight sized modelling. I think.

      Ok, I checked, her agent said that she hasn’t officially dropped the title of “plus size model,” but she’s in between right now. So there’s that.

    looks like she’ll need a couple more dye jobs…her roots are purple and her ends are yellowish. toning disaster.

    really bad hair and what is that crap on her shoulders?

  7. Hm says:

    I’m thinking those are gray roots. Interesting. It does draw attention to the structure of her face.

  8. anonymous says:

    Looks like she’s had her ears pinned to her head.

    Effie Trinket?

    She’s trying to look like Lara Stone and failing miserably. This is not a “new” or “edgy” look, it’s been high fashion since 2008 so idk what she’s trying to prove.
