Crystal was on Ellen DeGeneres yesterday, along with other plus models (including the amazing Kate Dillon, my favorite model from the halcyon days of Mode magazine — she’s since gotten a graduate degree from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard and she’s been working in third-world development, having failed to get the memo that all models are supposed to be dim-bulb narcissists). Kate and Crystal, along with Lizzie “Belly Pooch!” Miller and Amy Lemons, were on to promote the November issue of Glamour, which has a big ol’ naked spread of plus-size lusciousness. Big ups to editor Cindi Leive for pledging to feature more size diversity in the mag, which was already the lease sizeist (size-ist? help me out) of all the women’s mags.
Embedding is disabled, but it’s here. And Kate Harding has a great analysis of some of the, uh, issues with the segment (however well-meaning it was)Â here.
Wow, Ellen has a really good arm. I wonder if she plays softball.
