Crystal Renn explains 'interesting' look

Crystal Renn dyed her hair blonde because she was having a “Gemini moment”.

The model stunned when she showed off her new look recently, having coloured her usually dark brunette locks pale blonde. She has now discussed why she made the bold move, explaining she loves her new look and plans to keep it up.

“It’s so interesting because I think it’s the last thing people would expect me to do - which is exactly why I did it. Besides, I was having a Gemini moment,” she laughed.

“It means that you can get bored and you want a bit of a change. So I would say besides having projects in the works, that I wanted something new myself so I decided to keep it.”

Crystal was speaking at the New Yorkers for Children dinner dance earlier this week. The event also featured a fashion show with some of the biggest names in the industry in attendance, among them Doutzen Kroes, Coco Rocha and Erin Heatherton.

Crystal opted for a moss green Zac Posen gown, which showed off her new slim frame. The model used to be plus size but has shed weight of late.

The 25-year-old has been astounded by the attention her new hair has attracted – not all of it positive. She doesn’t listen to her detractors though and is proud she went all out by bleaching her brows too.

“I’m in a place where I want to play with my look and because my eyebrows are such a prominent feature I thought it would be interesting to mix it with the white in my hair,” she told Fashionista.com. “I have very thick brows and to have thick white brows, it was very appealing to me. I wanted to do blonde in a different way. I technically have white in my hair.”

Crystal also hinted a change of career could be on the cards. The model might make the move into acting, although it doesn’t mean she would totally leave the fashion industry.

“I’m always considering new projects. But it’s not something that I have pursued because my modelling career is so busy and if I were to pursue acting I’d want to take it very seriously and study. If the right part came along, yes, most certainly, I would do it. I’m becoming more and more open to that every day. Modelling feels like acting. Did you see those Interview shots of me playing a mental patient? I was in character all day,” she laughed.

“Some people got really huffy about it, like should we mix the two? And I think what’s most important is that you want to believe the story - you do it for movies so why wouldn’t you do it for fashion?”

    Treasure trove of British newsreels reveals Top Gear's ancestors

    Long after television grew to dominate American and British homes, newsreel producer British Pathé kept at it, documenting the news of the day until finally ceasing production of new short films in 1970 after 60 years of effort. Last week, all of British Pathé's 85,000 films were put online — including dozens of fascinating, rare and often weird car films that resemble nothing so much as a jet-age Top Gear.

    Nissan tests self-cleaning paint that could make car washes obsolete

    During this vile, never-ending winter, motorists had three options to keep their cars clean: Shell out on regular car washes; slave away in the cold, wind and snow washing it yourself, or screw it and just drive a dirty car. I, like many, chose the last option. But if only I'd been able to test Nissan's self-cleaning car, all my troubles would have washed away.

    I tendered my resignation without securing the next job. Here’s why I don’t mind.

    I have committed a taboo – I have tendered my resignation without securing the next job. The reactions to the announcement were varied but they all pretty much hint at a deep sense of disapproval. “Why did you do that?” It was as if I had renounced my faith. “What are you going to do from now on?” Almost as though a misfortune had incapacitated me. “What does your family have to say about it?” As if I had offered to cook for the next family dinner. I was, and still am, certain of my reasons and motivations for the resignation. However the response I received got me thinking about why people are so concerned about the gaps in their careers. The developed world evolved from an agricultural economy to an industrial economy to the service age, then to the knowledge economy in the late 1990s and 2000s marked by breakthroughs in technological innovations and competition for innovation with new products and processes that develop from the research community. According to The Work Foundation, the knowledge economy is driven by the demand for higher value added goods and services created by more sophisticated, more discerning, and better educated consumers and ...
