No one's closer to the runway than the models, so for fall fashion inspiration, it makes perfect sense to turn to a girl who's walked our favorite shows. Enter Crystal Renn, a supermodel who doesn't generally play by the rules (you know we don't either). Which is probably why she's one of the most buzzed-about players in the game—her fierce intellectualism, plus-size status (is she or isn't she?) and her weight losses and gains (plus the book she wrote on the subject) have been discussed ad nauseum. Not that it's affected her career: Renn's appeared in the pages W, Vogue, and French Vogue, strutted down the Chanel runway, and landed campaigns with Jean Paul Gaultier, Jimmy Choo, and Dolce & Gabbana. We get it, she's major. So, consider us amped when this catwalk queen agreed to let us in on all her style secrets — modeling four looks that range from high fashion to laid-back luxe — and spilled all of best model-worthy beauty secrets. It's official, we're modelizers.
