View Full Version : Hayley Hasselhoff - Torrid
8th May 2009, 22:47
Ive been a bit disappointed with Torrids promotions lately, at least in the stores. The models are not as curvy as they should be. I really miss Kelsey and Christina.
But its nice to see Hayley Hasselhoff (another "Germanic beauty") with Torrid again. She got too thin for a while there, but now she looks curvier and better again. She is headlining Torrids new high-school model search (which is a great idea).
Here she is in a brand-new Torrid video, looking very pretty.

<br>Hayley is indeed lovely, as these images (taken by Michael Anthony, who appears briefly in the above video) from the Torrid site demonstrate. Her facial features look particularly soft and full in this image.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/hh/torrid01.jpg"></center><p>With her fair complexion and curvy figure, Hayley is very much a timeless beauty.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/hh/torrid02.jpg"></center><p>And her current Ford card reflects the improvement in her looks. Whereas before she was listed at a smaller size, she is now a 12/14, which is even better than it sounds, given that she has a very natural, non-Amazonian height (5'6). Her 36" waist measurement is specifically a point of praise. With her appealing looks and measurements, she will help many young girls feel better about possessing naturally curvy figures.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/hh/card01.jpg"></center><p>The high-school model search (the event that is described in the above video) was a fine Torrid project, and will hopefully bring in a new generation of Kelseys, Christinas, Kailees, and Hayleys. Apparently, students can still enter this contest as late as today, via mail-in submission.
Miss Hasselhoff will also be running a Web log for Torrid, according to the following link. It will be interesting to see how her relationship with everyone's favourite junior-plus retailer progresses. So long as she at the very least retains her current proportions (or better yet, becomes fuller-figured), Hayley will be an ideal "Torrid girl," and a fine role model for her generation.

<br>Here's something that Hayley fans have long wished to see: new test photos from Ford L.A. The pictures are very attractive too, and testify to Miss Hasselhoff's innate beauty.
Pride of place goes to this image, which is one of the loveliest headshots we have ever seen. It demonstrates the exquisite fairness of Hayley's complexion, the luminous, pale skin with just a hint of a flush at the cheeks. She displays every attribute of timeless beauty--long golden hair and baby blues. The model's dreamy-eyed expression, very well presented, suits the look perfectly. Hayley has a soft, sweet appearance that is rare in plus-size modelling, but is possessed by its most celebrated talents (Kelsey, Christina, Kailee, etc.).<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/hh/test03.jpg"></center><p>A full-length shows a fun pose from Hayley. The ruffle-trimmed top is feminine, and the colour very well chosen to complement her skin tone and hair colour, although one always wishes to see models in something more fitted.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/hh/test04.jpg"></center><p>A tad more body-conscious is this image. Notice how Hayley switches to a more seductive look to suit the wardrobe and the warmer lighting. A slight breeze gives lovely movement to her long tresses.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/hh/test01.jpg"></center><p>Turning up the allure factor still further, Hayley offers a dramatic over-the-shoulder look that will melt fans' hearts.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/hh/test02.jpg"></center><p>For something completely different, here is Hayley in an interesting mix of wardrobe styles. The hat with the netting recalls 1940s mode, while the denim jacket is very contemporary. The ensemble employs the "body-as-fashion-accessory" principle to great effect. And again, Hayley's expression is what gives the look cohesion and makes it work. Her modelling talents are truly prodigious.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/hh/test05.jpg"></center><p>And finally, here is a gorgeous collage combining three Hayley photos. It's extraordinary how much drama she achieves with her long tresses--another vivid demonstration that goddesses should always grow out their hair to stunning lengths. Notice how different the three expressions are, though--the left a more fun look, the right softer and sweeter, and the middle look a languishing appearance. And consider the clever styling--the choice of a tasseled top which echoes the movements of the model's hair.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/hh/test06.jpg"></center><p>Hayley is a talented and attractive girl who could have great success in the industry. Let us hope that she retains her curves, or becomes fuller-figured, for the industry could greatly benefit from her presence, and girls of her generation could derive much confidence from her example.

She's so beautiful. I hope she keeps her curves and makes a career of plus-size modelling. It would be wonderful to have a celebrity model in the business.
Here are a couple of very recent paparazzi photos of Hayley and her famous father that I thought I'd share. I love how fair her complexion is.
In the shadows here, but you can see the beauty of her soft facial features.
