I met Crystal in Saint Tropez. We had interesting conversations about life, dreams, zodiac signs and fashion. Her energy and open-mindedness captivated me. She inspires with stories about her life. Her experiences as a starving size zero model, and the change to a healthy, happy plus model is a promising story. Her opinion about the women and the beauty ideal in the fashion industry is, that it should capture all body sizes. Both naturally thin, curvy and thick. She is fighting for girls with eating disorders, to change the concept in the fashion business to a healthier ideal. Besides modeling, she wrote a book about her like and experiences, "Hungry: A Young Model's Story of Appetite, Ambition and the Ultimate Embrace of Curves".
Crystal is one of the ideal women, with a big heart, beauty, brains and body.
