This will be a thrill for all fans of Sophie Sheppard and plus-size beauty.

At last, M.O.D., the official organizers of last November's Curves in Couture show, have released their official videos of the event.

The footage is continuous in three reels, rather than being broken up by collection. This video features the Anna Scholz runway show, beginning at 0:06.

Sophie emerges at 2:12. What's especially exciting is to see the close-ups of the model. Watch the deliciously vain look that she gives the camera at 2:26.

The next video includes the Jill Alexander show, which commences at 0:19, with its distinctive Latin music. Sophie walks the runway at 0:30, in that exciting red dress which embraces her every luscious curve. She generates an alluring pout at 0:59.

Sophie is a true goddess, exhibiting a sumptuously curvy figure and a dazzlingly fair features. To see her on the runway is to see poetry in motion. I don't know if I've ever seen a plus-size model walk the catwalk in such a sinuously alluring way.

Bravo to M.O.D. for creating this thrilling event and for including such a gorgeous model in the show.

Fabulous videos.

It's fascinating to compare the official footage with the unofficial videos that were released shortly after the event itself:


The official videos offer the benefit of multiple cameras, but I enjoy the focus on Sophie in the unofficial clips.

At any rate, both together offer a fine 360-degree perspective on the experience, for everyone who wasn't fortunate enough to attend.

And the bottom line is this: Sophie looks gorgeous from every angle.
