In his opening remarks of the Fall/Winter issue Paper Planes editor-in-chief Carlos Ramirez says, “So this issue is dedicated to those women [Audrey Hepburn, The Supremes, Coco Chanel] with talent, charisma, and strength throughout history have been impossible to ignore; and of course to the elegance and power of black over every other color.” That is no small order for any magazine issue no matter its size and as such Paper Planes has rightly looked to Crystal Renn for its cover story by photographer Derek Kettela. In terms of a fashion persona that could even come close to capturing the contemporary zeitgest and with the grace and elegance described by Ramirez Crystal is surely unrivaled. The story titled “Black Crystal” speaks volumes to thesis by presenting a series of classic black looks styled by Andreas Kokkino. For example in the cover shot Crystal wears a Dolce & Gabbana bodysuit and an animal-print belt by Early Halloween. Classy, sexy, and, yes, curvaceous, Crystal Renn sets the editorial pages alight and once again gives another reason why she is impossible to ignore.

Comment by Alyssa

the point is to be ourselves, not somebody else. it can be hard to make peace with our flaws but the message she and tyra banks and other modelssingers etc. are saying is love yourself now for who you are.be amodel if you want! i was and i’m far from “perfect”. much love to you…
