Crystal Renn in the Chanel Ad for the SoHo Boutique Re-Opening

Plus size model Crystal Renn has once again rubbed shoulders with designer Karl Lagerfield to promote one of his ads. He’s re-opening his store in SoHo and she’s in the steamy ad with the hot male model Baptiste Giabiconi. Renn remarked, “Karl is a genius. He’s a Virgo so we’re compatible and we got on really well,” adding that Giabiconi is “the most gorgeous man I’ve ever seen hands down. I remember being on set and trying not to stare but staring at him methodically nonetheless to try to figure out how perfection in a male looks. It’s insane when you look at him”. “Working with Chanel has been my dream forever. As long as I’ve been working as a model I’ve been thinking about Chanel and working towards Chanel and this campaign is the proudest moment of my life.” This marks the second time (that we know of) that Crystal has worked with Chanel. She walked in the Cruise show in May. The store is set to open next month. Here’s the ad and store info:
