Crystal Renn is breaking another barrier for plus-size models and meeting her own personal goals in the process. After walking in the Chanel resort show in May, she’s now taking on the runways of N.Y.C, walking on Saturday night for designer Zac Posen’s Z Spoke line, and she couldn’t be happier! Renn told PEOPLE earlier this week, “I’m freaking out. Zac is one of the ones you want. Zac, Calvin and Marc are the big three. I booked one of my three.” And the brunette beauty has nothing but praise for the designer, who dresses a range of Hollywood stars, from Rachel Bilson to Christina Hendricks. “I got to know [Zac] and to hear him talk about it he gets a woman. He wants women to be able to fit [into] them and to be able to buy them. They’re making the clothes for my size and everything. This is how fashion should be.” And seeing Renn glowing in canary yellow on the Z Spoke runway, we can’t think of a better model for the designer’s fun and feminine styles. — Melissa Liebling-Goldberg; reporting by Charlotte Triggs
