View Full Version : Katherine Roll: New images & gallery

4th January 2010, 08:31
<br>Following her wildly popular recent prom and bridal campaigns for the Formal Source, it will surprise no one that Katherine Roll has finally been given a gallery of her own (linked below), and listed on the survey page.

Ever since Miss Roll made her debut at Full-Figure Fashion Week, we have wanted to pay tribute to her work in this fashion, but for inclusion in the Judgment of Paris survey we generally stipulate that in addition to being exemplars of the Classical ideal, models need agency representation and at least one major print campaign. Katherine has achieved both of these distinctions, first by signing with Model Service Agency in New York, then by shooting for the Formal Source.

Regular forum readers will instantly recognize Miss Roll's prom and bridal pictures in the gallery from the recent posts about these campaigns. However, Katherine's new page features a special treat for the model's fans. Photographer Richard Lew, who did such a fine job shooting FFFWeek, kindly granted permission for us to include several of his images of Katherine on the runway. Fans who thus far have only viewed the FFFWeek pictures at a diminutive size will be thrilled to see them larger and clearer.

Katherine is one of the most exciting young talents in the industry. Gorgeous and genuinely full-figured, with a doll-like countenance, fair features, round limbs, and opulent proportions (45-37-<strong>51</strong>), she perfectly embodies timeless beauty, and represents the curvier variety of plus-size models that the public is forever asking to see. We eagerly look forward to her future modelling successes.

Count me among those who were eager to see Katherine get a gallery of her own. I think she already deserved one from FFFWeek, but now the timing is even better, because her prom and bridal pictures are included as well. She is such an angel. If Rubens were alive today, you know he would be begging to paint Katherine as a Classical Venus. She has a lovely face and an absolutely stunning figure.

Plus, she is an excellent model. She has that impassive, smouldering look in the runway, they playful for prom, then graceful as a bride - perfect for every context. And everything she wears looks terrific on her.

By the way, is it just me, or does it seem like almost all of the most beloved plussize models have a "k" sound in their names? Kelsey Olson, Kailee O'Sullivan, Katherine Roll, Charlotte Coyle, Christina Schimdt, Karen Vermeiren, Kelly S., even Crystal Renn and Kate Dillon, for that matter (and honourable mention for Candice, for her V swimwear picture). It must be a secret rule!
