    'Yes, I have lost weight' admits not-so-plus-size supermodel Crystal Renn

    She shot to fame as one of the world's most famous plus-size models. But last night Crystal Renn admitted that she is now no bigger than a U.S. Size 8-10 (UK Size 12-14).
    The 24-year-old Chanel model, who was previously a UK Size 16, said that she finally felt ready to exercise for the first time since her teens, when she suffered from an eating disorder and became addicted to working out for up to eight hours a day.
    She revealed that a difficult break-up had contributed to her decision to embrace a more healthy lifestyle, and a combination of hiking and yoga had helped the weight drop off.


    Not-so-plus-size: Supermodel Crystal Renn, pictured backstage after a fashion show in New York last night, is now a U.S. Size 8-10

    She told NY Magazine: 'In the past, I avoided exercise because it brought back terrible feelings. I wasnít ready. And I was scared that maybe I was going to be addicted again.
    'Thatís a fear that goes through your mind, whenever youíre getting over an addiction or a disease like anorexia, yeah, I absolutely was worried.

    'But then I guess you could say my life changed in a really drastic way. For one, there was a split-up that I went through that was very difficult, and I thought, ďYou know what? I need to be in a good place. I need to find me again.Ē'
    Renn, who is 5ft 9in tall and is a favourite with designers including Jean Paul Gaultier and Zac Posen, said that weight loss hadn't been her intention, but that she was in a 'good place' now.

    'I went backpacking for three weeks and I came back and I had lost some weight. And basically Iíve been traveling ever since.
    'This is just how my body is now... Itís been strange, actually, because itís not something Iíve been trying to do,' she admitted.
    She added that her current routine was far from rigorous: 'I think I probably have a good relationship with the exercise that I do do,' she said.
    'Iím taking care. Iím just in a really good place. I do hiking. I do yoga, but nothing crazy, just in my house. It brings me peace.'
    Speechless: Renn was furious after seeing that photographer Nicholas Routzen had digitally slimmed her body in the Fashion for Passion campaign

    Earlier this year, Renn hit headlines when her image was heavily retouched in an advertising campaign.
    She admitted she was furious after seeing that photographer Nicholas Routzen had digitally slimmed her body in the Fashion for Passion campaign, prompting speculation that she had lost weight.
    'When I saw the pictures I was absolutely shocked,' she said. 'I sat in silence for a good five minutes. It was not an accurate portrayal of my body in any way. I'm a [U.S.] size 10 and that was a size 2 at most.'
    Gruelling regime: Renn as a teenager, when she starved herself to a Size Zero

    Routzen admitted he 'shaped her', insisting: 'I did nothing that I wouldn't do to anyone. I'm paid to make women look beautiful.'
    But Renn complained: 'I understand a certain amount of retouching - if there's a zit or you want to smooth things out - but to change my body completely, that's not what I'm about and that's not the message I want to give.

    'I don't want young women to think being thin is the only way to be beautiful. Beauty is not a pant size. I'm known for my body and I'm proud of my body.'
    Renn has previously spoken about her battle with anorexia, which began when she was ordered to drop five stone after being spotted by a talent scout aged 13.
    After starving herself for three years Renn's body began to reject the regime and she gained weight.
    She was told to shed the extra pounds - but refused and joined modelling agency Ford - known for supporting plus-sized models.

    She has since developed an international reputation thanks to her Rubenesque curves, and has written a

    I love her in that picture with Gaultier.

    It seems like her face gets a little angular/severe when she loses weight.

    She does look good slimmer. But she shouldn't lose anymore weight and fall into that "maybe I should lose 5 more pounds just in case" trap. She would like death if she went down to a Size 2 like most models.

    IMO, unlike many other women, she is much prettier with a few extra pounds. I don't like her looks when she is thin.

    She looks good now.
    Hopefully she didn't relapse or just went from anorexic to bulimic.

    Ironically, at a US size 8-10, she is still considered plus size for a model.

    Her face looks gaunt now. Her body may look better in clothes but her face looks far better when she has more weight on.

    I love that runway picture with Gaultier too, she looks lovely and what a nice hourglass figure.

    Okay I looked at some more photos of her over at ONTD and her body looks a little wonky from the weight loss. Her thighs looked a little weird skin-wise and her cheekbones are too sharp and make her look gaunt. I really hope she lays off losing any more weight and stays where she's at.

    I felt the same way about Oprah and Luther Vandross, they just looked sick when they were thin.

    Her cheekbones look ridiculously sunken in the most recent runway pics on ONTD.

    and i don't believe she's a US size 8-10. more like 6-8.

    not everyone's body is meant to be thin. I think she's one of them. if you just look at her face you know she's too thin.
