Just got done reading Hungry, the memoir by Crystal Renn. If you've never heard of her, or haven't picked up a magazine in the past few years, she's arguably of the most famous "plus-sized" models out there (and in my opinion, one of the most gorgeous models period). Her book talks about her start in the business, when she dropped 70 pounds to become a teenage model. The pictures from that time are pretty shocking. She looks completely different, you wouldn't be able to tell it was her just by looking at the picture. She struggled with modeling and almost quit, but it was only when she got over her eating disorder and became a normal weight that she really found success in the fashion industry. Now, she's blowing up! (Most recently seen on the June cover of Glamour). Definitely an interesting, eye-opening book and she writes in a relatable, down-to-earth way.
