View Full Version : New Ford videos

22nd September 2005, 06:02
<br>Plus-size model fans who enjoy seeing their favourite goddesses in living motion will be pleased to know that Ford has released a second series of promotional videos.

Once again, some models fare considerably better in the videos than others. Proficiency at creating still images does not necessarily guarantee that a model will be adept at the video format--whether in speaking, poise, or movement. On the other hand, some models whose print work is not necessarily prepossessing are no more convincing on video.

Of the newest series, the model whose video stands above the rest is certainly Ashley Graham. Kaylie O'Sullivan's sparkling, fresh, joyful clip is still <i>far and away</i> the best of them all--and is probably unsurpassable--but Ashley's rivals Crystal Renn's for second place.

Ashley has a soft, natural figure, as the video demonstrates even better than many of her still images do,<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ag/video01.jpg"></center><p>and she moves in a very comfortable and relaxed manner.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ag/video03.jpg"></center><p>She also possesses a silky speaking voice, and exudes personality.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ag/video02.jpg"></center><p>These videos also provide exemplary lessons in plus-size styling. Ashley's outfit is perfectly chosen--a body-conscious, beautifully-cut sleeveless top, in an appropriately autumnal colour, with an eye-catching sash at the side.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ag/video05.jpg"></center><p>- <a href="http://www.fordmodels.com/fmvideo/video2.cfm?video_url=ag30_28_1_2.flv" target="_blank">Click here to view Ashley Graham's video.</a><p>And speaking of fine styling, we would also like to direct your attention to Charity Hartzell's video. Charity is not as full-figured as the public prefers when it comes to plus-size models, but the clip deserves a viewing on the strength of that fitted, abbreviated, vermillion dress, which is such a refereshing change from the top/pants combination that most of her peers adopted in their videos.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/charity02.jpg"></center><p>The dress contrasts wonderfully with her long, flowing hair,<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/charity04.jpg"></center><p>and Charity gets a round of applause for adopting an "unattainable cheerleader" expression in her video. This attitude has been sorely lacking in the plus-size field, so it's nice to see a model exhibiting it.

I really enjoyed Ashley's video. She looks extremely lovely in this. I think it shows off not only her curvaceous figure but also her sparlking personality as well. And I really love that outfit she had on. It's like poetry in motion.
