View Full Version : Grace Brackstone: Elvi, Maxima
20th March 2010, 13:06
I recently stumbled across two new campaigns by Grace Brackstone for European plus-size retailers.
She's now the face of a British company called Elvi. Here she is in three of the company's outfit pictures. I can only post them at this reduced size, but if you click on the link you'll find that they're zoomable to much bigger dimensions.

Grace also just turned up in a new e-mail flyer from Elvi. I think her face looks especially attractive here.

The images from her campaign for Maxima, a German company, are actually more youthful and more creatively photographed, but since they're flash-based I can't post them directly to the forum. To see them, click on this link and select "Winter" from the bottom bar.
I wish she were a bit fuller figured, but she's a gorgeous model. It's great to see her career progressing.

I clipped a few of Grace's Maxima pictures. The wardrobe is very characteristic of continental plus-size fashion: layering upon layering. However, the styling is kind of nice, with the colour-coordinated gloves. And the photography is excellent; lots of dramatic lighting. Plus, Grace was allowed to do some quite dramatic poses.
The hands-in-the-hair pose on the right is really striking.
Grace has a really youthful-looking face, which softens her serious looks, creating an interesting blend of effects.
See what I mean about the lighting? In the picture on the left it creates a chiaroscuro effect, making Grace's blonde hair glow with a sacred light. Try to imagine the same expression and lighting, but with different wardrobe.
The studio set is at least somewhat more interesting than a plain grey backdrop would have been.
I love Grace's expression in the picture on the left:
She's a very, very beautiful model. If she were ever to go up a dress size or two, she would be one of the greatest in the industry.

The Maxima photos benefit from artistic lighting and great styling touches. But I do like the Elvi pictures of Grace as well, which may be simple but effectively showcase her look.
I received an e-mail flyer from Elvi too - this one featuring a different picture of Grace.
It's a lovely photo because it shows a bit of fullness in her face, more than the other images do, and consequently she looks especially beautiful here.

I have a picture of Grace to add to this thread as well.
I agree that her face looks really full and beautiful in these e-mail circulars.
The Maxima clothing is more youthful, much of it, and more to my taste, but Grace makes the Elvi clothing look good as well.

Elvi is the gift that keeps on giving. I signed up for their e-mails and just received this lovely photo of Grace. I prefer the images posted earlier, as they show the softness in her face, but its still a lovely photo:
Here is the link to the flyer:

The Elvi flyers have produced one enchanting picture of Grace after another.
Here's the latest:
She looks so sunny in yellow! So fresh and pretty.
Really, Grace is a lovely model, and it's a treat to see her work.

This is becoming a full-fledged gallery of Grace's images. But why not? She's very pretty.
Here's a shot from her latest Elvi flyer:

Here are some more images to add to this thread.
First from an e-mail circular, the picture that was the former Elvi site cover page:
And a promo for a new summer collection with the lovely name "English Rose" - which certainly applies to Grace herself:
Also, the Elvi site now features several more "outfit" images - two from the spring collection:
And two breezier looks betokening the "English Rose":

Here's Grace looking quite pretty in a new Elvi flyer, though I'm not crazy about the long shirt as a wardrobe choice. A bit too shapeless. The colour is nice on her though.
Elvi is producing a great deal of advertising with Miss Brackstone. It's wonderful to see. I just wish that other plus-size companies would do likewise whenever they feature the industry's most popular models.
I have a couple of pictures of Grace to add to this thread, from sundry Elvi flyers.
Another view of her in pink, which sets off her complexion beautifully:
And an attractive headshot:
