Can you say "Yes"?

Crystal Renn, model extrordinaire and all around awesome human being is coming out with a book, a memoir to be exact.  September 8th, Hungry, will be hitting a stor near you and you'd best pick it up.

Not familiar with Renn you say?  Let me fill you in...
"When Crystal Renn aspired to be a model as a 14-year-old in Mississippi, an agent told her she had to lose 9 inches off of her hips first.  Renn ended up doing that, and then some, going from 175 lbs and 5' 8" to 95 lbs and an inch and a half taller in two years, eventually moving to New York City and launching a successful modeling career.
After conquering the eating disorder that transformed her body, Renn, now 23, is happy to call herself a size 12 plus-size model, who, with her new curvy figure has walked the runway for Gaultier, graced the pages of Vogue and starred in ads for Dolce & Gabbana."

Keep in mind this is the NEW size 12.  Marilyn was a size 12 but the old 12, which is bigger than what we would consider that to be now.

Need more proof of her beauty? How about some before and afters?
at the height of her eating disorder about 95-105 pounds

I'm kind of in love with her.  Now I'll admit, there are very skinny models that I do like, but I try to steer clear of the very sickly looking ones.  I've always dissagreed that clothes look the best on the skinniest models; who likes clothes on wire hangers?  No, we use the big wooden ones, or better yet, plushy velveteen hangers that sometimes you would rather hug then see stuffed in your closet. 

All three swimsuit pictures are from the May Glamour, of this year.

Cannot WAIT for "Hungry".  Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to finish watching Wuthering Heights and this brownie.
