<br>Our new video segments have proven to be quite popular, so here is one more, very special treat for all fans of plus-size beauty--a glimpse of Valerie Lefkowitz on the runway.

This video segment was originally broadcast on NBC's <i>Today</i> show in August 2002, and comprised part of a report about junior plus-size fashion.

It is such a delight to see a plus-size model doing runway--and to watch Valerie do a perfect pivot for the camera, her golden curls flying, will take your breath away:<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/vl/cap034.jpg"></center><p>This was at a time when Valerie had just become a size 14 (later, for a short period, she was even listed as a 14/16), and her face possessed that angelic fullness and roundness that is the epitome of timeless beauty:<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/vl/cap035.jpg"></center><p>And because this is Valerie, whose posing abilities are second to none, she dazzles the camera with an array of captivating expressions, the likes of which no straight-size model could ever duplicate.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/vl/cap044.jpg"></center><p>We earnestly hope that Valerie will become a true plus-size model again someday. And in the meantime, we can all delight in seeing these glimpses of her beauty when she was at her subversive best.<p>- <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKnVOVfcSCg&fmt=18" target="_blank">Click here to view Valerie's appearance on the <i>Today</i> show.</a>
