We salute Crystal Renn‘s entry into the MDC Top 50 Models ranked at #36. Crystal has of course always been #1 in our minds, but all the same the significance of this ranking is not lost on us. We’d be hard pressed to name another model in the Top 50 who cuts even remotely a similar figure to Crystal and for a model who dreams of expanding narrow runway size standards this is all the more significant. Crystal’s Top 50 ranking has been a long time in the making, but after having garnered her first major fall campaign for Jean Paul Gaultier it was all but inevitable.
