These images are the result of Terry Richardson photographing Crystal Renn for French Vogue’s 90th anniversary issue, styled by Carine Roitfeld. The mammoth of an issue is already riding on plenty of hype, and these images have just the kind of shock value that will aid that effort. You know, look at the plus-size model eating! Ew yuck food BLEH! The effect is not unlike that of Renn’s last French Vogue shoot — in which she posed with a giant mat of pubes over her crotch — it’s just more exaggerated. While everyone is fawning over the beauty of the cover, starring a topless, masked Lara Stone, Renn’s images are inside for the world’s gawking pleasure. Despite the mini-explosion of plus-size models in fashion magazines over the past year, fashion still seems to be having a hard time not gawking at them. On the other hand, at least she’s not naked.
