Another look at Fellini's <i>La Dolce Vita</i> confirms Ms. Lopez's suggestion that Charlotte bears a passing resemblance to Anita Ekberg. Here, once again, is Charlotte:<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/cc/ccsurvey.jpg"></center><p>And here is a screen capture of Anita, in the legendary "Dance in the Trevi fountain" scene, which may be the most beautiful instance of timeless beauty ever recorded on film.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/ekberg01.jpg"></center><p>Readers who saw Wolgang Petersen's epic <i>Troy</i> this summer may also notice some similarity between Charlotte and Diane Krüger, who played Helen of Troy in said film. At the time that <i>Troy</i> premiered, several of our readers mentioned that Ms. Krüger <i>would</i> have made a worthy Helen, if only she had been fuller-figured. Charlotte gives us some idea of what such a deity might have looked like.<p>How thrilling that plus-size models are finally being allowed--even encouraged--to present themselves as the goddesses that they truly are. It reflects the fact that full-figured women in general are beginning to see themselves in this manner.

And rightly so.<p>- <a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/ekberg02.jpg">Another ''Venusberg'' moment from La Dolce Vita</a>
