View Full Version : Valerie: Dress Barn, Summer '09

13th May 2009, 20:56
<br>Fans of Valerie Lefkowitz will always regard her Lion Brand <a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/board/showthread.php?t=1537" target="_blank">campaign</a> of 2008 as a high-water mark of the model's beauty, inasmuch as she was a luscious size 18 at the time. However, her latest promotion (Summer 2009 for Dress Barn) deserves a nod as well.

The Dress Barn site features several new images of Valerie, of which the most attractive is the following. One sees a hint of fullness in the model's arms, while the fitted top, with its attractive print, fits close enough to the body to display the womanly hips that are the glory of Valerie's figure. She is moderately buxom as well. Nevertheless, fans dearly miss the facial fullness that she so recently possessed, which endowed her face with alluring softness and a healthy glow.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/vl/db41.jpg"></center><p>In the following image Valerie manages to be both elegant and fun--a unique mix. Although the picture regrettably indicates how much she has diminished herself, it does reveal a slight, sensual swell at her waist. Her smile is utterly charming.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/vl/db40.jpg"></center><p>And finally, in this image Valerie adopts a pose that is extraordinarily sophisticated and coolly attractive. Here, as in the other photos, her fair complexion serves her well, giving her an almost luminous quality as her delicate skin reflects the light. The top is not the prettiest (the print not nearly as attractive as that of the first item shown in this thread), but Valerie's graceful pose and Classical beauty transform her overall look into one of remarkable glamour.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/vl/db42.jpg"></center><p>Ms. Lefkowitz was and remains one of the loveliest models in the industry, and her posing talent is second to none, as is her timeless beauty. What fans wouldn't give, however, for her to recover the curves that she so recently possessed, which made her, for a time, the most beautiful model working in the industry today.

<br>Here's a treat for Valerie fans--a reader has kindly sent us a cell-phone photograph of one of the model's in-store posters for Dress Barn Woman. The company's summer campaign is winding down now, and fall is just around the corner, so we are delighted that someone caught an image of this lovely display.

Valerie always looks stunning with her fair hair long and flowing. Her expression is graceful and dreamlike, and has a yearning quality to it. She looks particularly youthful here. The outfit suggests the womanly curves of her celebrated pear-shaped figure.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/vl/db43a.jpg"></center><p>- <a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/vl/db43.jpg" target="_blank">Click to view larger</a>
