View Full Version : Kailee O'Sullivan for Belk

In the first exciting new campaign of the year, Belk has recruited gorgeous Kailee O'Sullivan to model for their plus-size line. Having employed Lindsey Garbelman last season, this is the company's second great coup.

Not only is Kailee as enchantingly pretty as ever, but Belk has even given her some uncommonly pretty items to model. I find this top to be very attractive, and Kailee is the perfect model to show it off. The strawberry colour goes so well with her fair complexion, and the top is designed to accentuate buxom curves - which Kailee certainly possesses.

Does the piece give anyone else a Chinese vibe? Not in its country of production; I mean the embroidered, satiny fabric with a slight sheen reminds me of Chinese silk robes, but cut to embrace the body.

This too is a lovely item, and also emphasizes Kailee's voluptuousness. I love her expression, with is a mixture of calculated innocence with come-hither flirtation.

The third piece is not quite as buxomness-oriented, but I do like the ruffles. Kailee makes it beautiful.

I always wish that Kailee were just a bit fuller-figured, but she is a ravishing beauty, and it's wonderful to see her in a new campaign Stateside.

<br>What a pleasure it is to see a new campaign featuring the adorable Kailee O'Sullivan (Click Models, NY). Her round, doll-like facial features are prettier than ever. The berry colours suit her perfectly, bringing a slight flush to her skin. The wavy luxuriance of her tresses is enchanting and opulent. One always associates Kailee with romance, and the scoop necklines and reddish hues of these tops do tend to anticipate Valentine's Day courtship. Her expressions are girlish yet deeply emotional--one recalls her observation that she is an "old soul," even in such a young body. Voluptuous, yet chic, she is a beauty like none other, and one of the most popular and celebrated models the plus-size industry has ever known.

Here is a larger version of her attractively embroidered top, which, with its satiny finish, does call to mind a traditional <a href="http://www.google.ca/images?um=1&hl=en&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&channel=s&biw=1024&bih=553&tbs=isch%3A1&sa=1&q=%2Bchinese+%2Bsilk+%2Bred&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=" target="_blank">Chinese</a> silk garment, but cut to adorn a well-fed goddess. Certainly if Kailee had found her way to the Orient in another time, particularly in the Tang Dynasty, she would have been heralded as the epitome of feminine loveliness.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ko/belk01b.jpg"></center><p>We hope to see more of Miss O'Sullivan at Belk in the near future.

I'm delighted to see that Belk has brought Kailee back to model its first swimwear collection of the year.

With her fair skin and buxom curves, Kailee is a gorgeous swimwear model. Her voluptuousness gives this swimsuit an attractive shape.

With just a little twist of the body, Kailee emphasizes her generous contours.

Of the various Belk swim offerings, I like the print on this swimsuit best; it's not as busy as the others. The only thing that I don't like are the overly wide straps. I adore the looking-away expression from Kailee, one of her signature emotional looks.

A hint of décolletage gives this otherwise "safe" swimsuit a bit of excitement.

Another seductive, "darker" expression from Kailee. Some models look best when smiling, but Kailee really comes into her own when photographers allow her to explore more dramatic looks, such as this.

I love the length of Kailee's hair, although I prefer the bit of body that the company gave her tresses for her previous shoot. Still, the long, straight, wavy look approximates how her tresses might appear after a dip in the pool.

Be sure to click on the "Zoom and More Views" button on each product page, which opens up a window that shows reverse views of Kailee in each swimsuit, as well as alternate poses.

She looks fantastic in swimwear (even though a slightly fuller-figured Kailee would be even more gorgeous!).

Belk has now added two more items modelled by Kailee, and comparing them provides an interesting lesson in what is more attractive in plus-size wardrobe vs. what is less so.

This ruffle top is very attractive, and the way in which it closely embraces Kailee's buxom curves, emphasizing her voluptuousness, is highly alluring. The fabric comes close to the body, defining her roundness, creating a very sensual effect. Kailee's look and pose are intensely seductive. The long hair is luxurious.

Notice how different the effect is with this tee. It's not a bad item, but it doesn't really show anything of Kailee's figure. One would never know how voluptuous she is, as the above item indicates so lovingly. Also, I'm never fond of the arms-akimbo pose, although I like Kailee's wry grin, as if she's trying to suppress a smile. (I'd bet that the photographer just cracked a joke a moment before.)

Wonderful to see Belk continuing to use this pretty model.

Here are some more Belk pictures for the avid Kailee fans.

First, a part of swimsuits which look gorgeous on her buxom figure, especially the first. Kailee's fair skin makes her swimwear images extremely sensual.

Next, two longer-length dresses. I'm not fond of overly long dresses, but the first of the two has an attractive design at the bust. This is also an especially romantic and sensual pose/expression from Kailee.

And finally, two attractive tops in very different styles.
