Last December, we praised a video essay about Crystal Renn that aired on Canada's Fashion Televsion.
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.

We are now delighted to have found an online video of this FT
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 cheeseburgers
--is sure to delight her fans no end.
We must applaud Fashion Television
for running such a positive piece about the model--and for opening the report with the "Flower Duet," from the Delibes opera, Lakmé.
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."
