<br>Last December, we praised a video essay about Crystal Renn that aired on Canada's <i>Fashion Televsion.</i> The <i>FT</i> piece included glimpses of Miss Renn's appearance at the Gaultier runway show, a thoughtful interview with the model, and clips of an exciting fashion shoot for which Crystal exhibited a breathtaking "wet look," and modelled a gorgeous, goddesslike Classical dress.

You can read that post, and view an extensive series of screen captures <a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/board/showpost.php?p=665&postcount=1" target="_blank">here</a>.

We are now delighted to have found an online video of this <i>FT</i> segment, at the URL linked below. It is, regrettably, a RealVideo clip (i.e., poorer in quality than .mov or .wmv files), so would-be viewers will need a RealVideo player (www.real.com) to watch it. But it is well worth the trouble, because seeing Miss Renn in graceful motion, modelling that dreamlike dress--not to mention hearing her affirm a love of <i>cheeseburgers</i>--is sure to delight her fans no end.

We must applaud <i>Fashion Television</i> for running such a positive piece about the model--and for opening the report with the "Flower Duet," from the Delibes opera, <i>Lakmé.</i> Seeing images of a living goddess accompanied by a classical soundtrack--i.e., by harmonies that match her own timeless beauty--seems so much more appropriate than juxtaposing a plus-size model with a dissonant U2 song, or with any other form of "modern music."<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/cr/cap045.jpg"></center><p>- <a href="rtsp://a1727.v106769.c10676.g.vr.akamaistream.net:554/ondemand/7/1727/10676/v0001/ondemandrm.chumtv.com/video/shows/inhouse/fashion_television/jan_2006/crystal_renn.rm">Click here to watch Crystal on <i>Fashion Television</i></a>
