A Perfect 14

May 23rd, 2014 1:20 pm


The film ‘ A Perfect 14 ‘ follows the journeys of three plus-size models, Elly Mayday, Laura Wells and Kerosene Deluxe. It shows their struggles against the perception of body image which currently exists in the mainstream media.

Although the film has not been completed yet, it has already gained an exciting following with over 10,000 followers on the Facebook fan page. It seems there’s a lot of excitement surrounding this project as we all wait for an official release date.

Produced by Canadian filmmakers James Early O’Brien and Giovanna Morales Vargas, the documentary offers an unflinching look at the modelling business and its often unforgiving treatment of women with curves.

‘ A Perfect 14 ‘  also looks at the label ‘plus size’ and discusses what the term actually means? and it’s relevance in today’s society.

The trio of plus size models share personal experiences of the modelling world. The aim is to help and empower not only each other but the viewers as well and to try and change the current notions of beauty. In addition to becoming successful models they are also driven to make a positive impact in the world.

We’re certainly looking forward to watching this film and following the story of each of these beautiful women.

How beautiful does Crystal Renn look in this Chanel ad?

When I first met Crystal about 6 years ago, I already thought she was the most beautiful woman I had ever seen. Now she seems to be blossoming more and more every year.

We have developed a friendship, had many fun evenings together. Her wedding was one of the most glamorous I’ve ever been to. I am so very happy for her to do so incredibly well in her career, and I think she looks breathtaking in this Chanel ad.

I just hope that she wont lose all her curves so we can keep her on her throne, representing curvy women all over the world….

I also thought I’d share some photos from the Anna Scholz archive that Crystal did for my Autumn-Winter 2007 collection. She looks amazing then and now!
