Clique to Know published two new flash sales today featuring stunning images of the clique's queen bee, Kelsey Olson.

Kelsey is a testament to the breathtaking beauty of true plus-size models who embody the timeless ideal, because her catalogue images, as seen here, are more gorgeous than even the artiest photographs that any minus-size waif or faux-plus model can create in the glossiest magazines.

I especially appreciate that Clique publishes the measurements of its models. In these new photos, it gives Kelsey's stats as:

Model's size: 16
Height: 5'10" Bust: 41"
Waist: 42" Hips: 45 1/2"

Truly a goddess. She now boasts a luscious 42" waist measurement. Only Mayara Russi, at 43", has a curvier middle among the world's top plus-size models.


The first of the two brands is called "Crescendo." I prefer Kelsey with her hair down, but these pictures of her in the red dress are sizzling. The richness at her middle creates a seductive silhouette, and I love the hint of soft curves along her back.

On a high-contrast monitor you'll be able to see the model's curves in pictures of the same dress in black. I think the red is much more exciting! With her elegant yet curve-accentuating poses, Kelsey combines sophistication with sexiness.

Kelsey's goddesslike curves even give this jacket a womanly shape, especially in the back photo, which shows the model's womanly reverse-view curves and the shapely fullness of her legs. Like Kailee at Ashley Stewart, Kelsey is a very accomplished model at posing when turned 180 degrees, which is a talent that plus-size models increasingly need to possess. I'm glad that more companies are offering views of their items from multiple angles.

The other brand that just released a flash sale at Clique to Know is called "Go Silk." For these photos, Kelsey wears her hair down, which makes her even more beautiful. Her golden tresses look as if they were still damp - the "wet look" - which is very alluring.

I adore the texture of this blouse, and Kelsey's playing-with-the-hair pose is very seductive. She has such full, pretty facial features. She really does look well-fed, to use a popular phrase. This is Kelsey's prettiest picture of all of the new Clique photos, because you can see the weight in her face.

RUFFLE PUCKER SHIRT WHITE

Of the Go Silk items, this red blouse comes closest to acknowledging the luscious fullness of Kelsey's waist. The silky sheen of the blouse matches the silky look of Kelsey's golden hair.

Kelsey looks so relaxed in this photo. Even her hair has a lazy, sensual heaviness about it. The shirt is loose, but when a model is as gorgeous as Kelsey, she adds other elements that make the pictures eye-catching, like the alluring fleshiness at her neck in the back photo.

LONG BUTTON-FRONT SHIRT

I like the pretty, ruffled details in this top at the neckline and sleeves, which immediately add so much femininity to what would otherwise be a basic item. Kelsey's languid beauty contributes to the ultra-feminine effect.

This is another example where having multiple angles enhances the appreciation of an item. I like the fact that the top is a bit open at the back, which shows a sexy touch of skin. The low, scoop neckline at the front also makes this a very flattering item on a wearer who has a sensually soft, smooth neck-and-shoulder area, as Kelsey does.

The last item is more on the simple side, but one thing I have to say about black is that it provides a great background for golden hair. The black fabric sets off Kelsey's fair tresses the way that a black velvet box effectively presents golden jewellery in a museum.

It never fails to amaze me how gorgeous Kelsey is. She makes everything she wears look appealing, even items that I would never give a second look if she weren't modelling them. Her sumptuous figure forms every item into a sexy shape (especially those fitted dresses) and her soft features enhance the beauty of any piece. She is rightly the head of the Clique, and the richer her curves, the more beautiful she becomes.

The Crescendo page has also added the following item, which they call an "Infinity Wrap":

This is such a unique and captivating picture of Kelsey. The wrap worn over the hair reminds me of paintings of the Virgin Mary, but Kelsey is much more boldly alluring in her pose.

She has a very innocent, vulnerable look in her eyes in the second photo. These images are very creative.

Go Silk also now lists a number of further items. Some are a bit basic, but I do like the texture in the white blouses; for example:

Kelsey's pose is very graceful in this image. It reminds me of the "modest" pose that Barbara Brickner is known for doing, but with her fair features, Kelsey brings a different mood to it. Very angelic, especially in white.

This picture provides the main cover logo for Go Silk at Clique to Know, and small wonder why -- Kelsey's gesture of playing with her hair is always eye-catching.

Such a soft look from Kelsey here, with her hair so relaxed and flowing over her shoulders.

I do like the puckering effect of the material in numerous Go Silk items, which makes them more interesting than a flat slab of fabric would look.

This is very similar to a corresponding top in white.

The next two items are quite basic, but Kelsey still manages to make the photos interesting.

I wish some of the Go Silk pieces were more body-conscious, but they do sometimes have interesting fabric, and ultimately, anything that Kelsey wears is guaranteed to look good.

Kelsey now also appears in a promotion for a label called Bedhead Pajamas. Given that sleepwear such as this is inherently loose-fitting (in order to be comfortable), a plus-size model needs to have something extra besides shapely curves to make her images in such apparel look captivating.

Fortunately, Kelsey's talent is limitless, so she makes these pictures unforgettable. You can see the whole collection here,

http://www.cliquetoknow.com/BrandRange.aspx?Brand_ID=%2076&Event_ID=132&type=fashion

but I want to single out two photos as especially pretty. I adore how fresh-faced Kelsey looks in these pictures - so sweet and innocent, but in a sincere rather than affected way; always genuine.

Doesn't she look just like a little girl going to bed in these PJs, with her hair tied back in a braid? It makes you want to read her a bedtime story about a fairy-tale princess. This is where Kelsey's fair skin, golden hair, and blue eyes are magical, because they give her that childhood look which is perfect for pajamas.

I could envision a whole editorial on this theme, complete with a four-poster bed, teddy bear, etc.
