Crystal Renn is ''excited'' by her New Look.

The former plus-size model recently dyed her hair platinum blonde and while people are shocked by her ''transformation'', she loves the ''extreme'' change to her appearance.

She said: ''People can't believe the transformation. I had black hair and now I have white hair.

''That's what's so exciting. I wanted to do something different. I wanted to show up as a different canvas at a shoot. It's a very extreme look but very beautiful. Though it's nothing conventional.''

Crystal underwent several dying sessions to change her hair and she is delighted by the finished look.

She told People magazine: ''It's a challenging look. But what's wonderful is it's something that photographs beautifully.''

The model lists actress Tilda Swinton as her style icon because she admires the way the 'We Need To Talk About Kevin' star changes her look so frequently.

The 25-year-old beauty explained: ''I'm not trying to conform to one certain look.

''I look up to someone like Tilda Swinton. She's The Fashion icon. She experiments and that keeps life fun.''
