View Full Version : Hayley B.: Sydney Fashion Festival audition

17th August 2011, 04:51
How exciting! As Australia prepares for Sydney's forthcoming Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival, this video shows a number of plus-size models being auditioned, including the most gorgeous model in Australia, Hayley B., of Bella Model Management, looking every inch of her luscious, size-16 self.

Hayley walks her catwalk strut at 0.53, is photographed looking stunning in a fitted white top that defines her opulent curves, and answers a question from the interviewer. Then the camera comes back to her at 1.42, and again at 2.37. She is definitely the star of the video! She looks fantastic.

I hope this means that she will be in the show itself. It would be so exciting to see her on the catwalk!

<br>Since the public never sees as many photos of Hayley as they would wish, it's worth reviewing the video and highlighting her appearances.

White has always been Hayley's signature colour, ever since she made her stunning debut in bridal fashions, so to see the model emerge in a white top is most agreeable.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/hb/t01.jpg"></center><p>Her walk is smooth, fluid, and graceful, a clear indication that she would be an effective catwalk presenter. Belying her own modest subsequent comments, she walks with the professionalism of a runway veteran.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/hb/t02.jpg"></center><p>Inthe scene showing Hayley being photographed, the light coming in from the side highlights her opulent, womanly curves, so lovingly defined by her fitted top. Her figure resembles that of a Classical sculpture in white marble, its smooth finish and rounded contours illuminated by the daylight streaming in through a museum window. Her stance communicates ease and confidence; her expression suggests agreeable self-satisfaction. To have a genuinely full-figured goddess exude such effortless body love is exactly what the curvy community is asking for, in plus-size models.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/hb/t03.jpg"></center><p>In the <i>Telegraph</i> interview, Hayley is articulate and sincere; confident, yet without a trace of pretension. This combination of goddesslike beauty and an honest disposition, a blend of the ideal and the real, is always a winning combination with the public, who find Hayley to be both aspirational <i>and</I> relatable--a rare, perfect mix.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/hb/t05.jpg"></center><p>If anything, Hayley's beauty has increased since fans were first introduced to her work. She has retained her luscious proportions, but she now exhibits longer hair. The natural golden hue of her tresses and the soft fullness in her face reminds one of Blair Warner from the television series <i>The Facts of Life,</I> an irresistible charmer was aristocratically lovely, yet had a soft, well-fed look.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/hb/t06.jpg"></center><p>Hayley's full, rounded arms are surely the glories of her figure. Although this top is not sleeveless, it is so attractively fitted that it defines the luscious outline of her shapely limbs, even baring part of her forearms to show her natural, fair skin tone (unblemished by artificial "tanner," which is yet another one of those horrors imposed on women to dupe them into resenting their natural appearance).<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/hb/t07.jpg"></center><p>These screen captures also highlight that emblem of facial fullness so highly prized in Renaissance aesthetics, the slight rise of a slope toward the throat. It is the visible weight in her face that gives Hayley her timeless beauty.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/hb/t08.jpg"></center><p>In one final, brief shot, the video shows Hayley tweeting about the casting experience. One suspects that the infatuated cameraman simply took this as an opportunity to showcase the model's buxom curves.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/hb/t04.jpg"></center><p>Many fans have acclaimed Hayley as the most beautiful model in Australia, and her gorgeous appearance in this video confirms their enthusiastic assessment.

Hayley's eloquence in the interview portion also shows that she is "media ready," and would be an excellent spokesperson for her profession.

The plus-size community would be delighted to be represented by a model who is visibly full-figured rather than faux-plus, and the general populace would be ravished by Hayley's beauty and would reassess the media myth that emaciation is attractive and curvaceousness is not. In seeing Hayley, the public would realize that the Classical aesthetic of full-figured beauty is superior to the modern starvation standard, and would be eager to see the return of this natural, feminine ideal.
