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!
“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:
