<br>For those of you who may have missed it, gorgeous globetrotting plus-size model Sophie Sheppard shot a campaign for the Myer label during her latest sojourn back to her native Australia, the results of which were published in a catalogue released last week.

The entire book is still available as a .pdf from the Myer site (viewable <a href="http://images.lasoomedia1.com.au/imageicon/myr/prod/j00519785/c_001/myr_prod_j00519785_c_001_r01.pdf" target="_blank">here</a>), but we cannot resist sharing the images directly on the forum.

The cover is likely the finest image in the catalogue, showing Miss Sheppard looking admirably buxom and every inch a U.S. size 16/18. The gesture of playing with her hair is extremely flirtatious.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/myer01.png" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/myer01.png" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>Another page inside the catalogue shows the model in a similar wrap dress, one which conforms even more closely to her 38d-41-49 figure. The model's apple-cheeked facial features look adorable, while the deep-V neckline accentuates her voluptuousness.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/myer03.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/myer03a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>While the Northern Hemisphere is currently moving into its summer months, the people of the Antipodes are now experiencing their winter season (or as close to a winter as one ever sees in Australia). Hence, the catalogue includes several examples of stylish outer wear.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/myer08.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/myer08a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>In a stellar example of how an attractive plus-size model can make any outfit appear womanly, the following image shows Sophie looking especially gorgeous and curvy, with the rounded swell of her midsection clearly visible beneath the fabric.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/myer09.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/myer09a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>Of course, the catalogue also features a host of casual items, including this pretty tee. The model's expression is warm and endearing. Although Sophie often adopts serious looks for her test shoots, her gentler expressions are even more captivating.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/myer06.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/myer06a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>Fans of Miss Sheppard's long, luxuriant tresses need not be concerned--she has not cropped her hair. The more abbreviated style that appears in these images is merely the result of the shoot's hairstylist. Pretty as she is in any circumstances, the longer locks add something special to her beauty.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/myer07.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/myer07a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>And speaking of that beautiful blonde hair, Sophie appears especially captivating when she flirtatiously plays with her tresses, as she does in the following image, looking irresistibly coquettish.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/myer10.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/myer10b.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>A full-length image shows the model in a contemporary-style dress. Observe how the splash of red breaks up the otherwise dark hues of the fabric.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/myer04.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/myer04a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>Even when she dons a looser item, Sophie's stunning curves shape the fabric into a womanly form. Observe how, in the following photograph, the model's luscious hips draw the eye.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/myer05.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/myer05a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>And finally, we end as we began, with Sophie in a beautiful dress, adopting a dramatic pose. The pendant adds an extra touch of visual interest to a fine outfit.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/myer02.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/myer02a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>Bravo to Sophie on another outstanding campaign, and kudos to Myer for enlisting the services of a true goddess--gorgeous and genuinely full-figured, as all plus-size models should be.

Sophie is also featured in a new "Fashion Hound" feature about her personal style in the Nine to Five newspaper.


The article comes with a host of gorgeous images of the model. Here are a few,showing Miss Sheppard looking buxom and beautiful.




The article is very appreciative of Sophie, and comes with a terrific description of the model:

Quite simply Sophie is stunning - both inside and out. A dreamy doll like face that really does defy logic, with a sweet and sunny disposition to boot!

Sophie is a plus-size model with a future so bright she had to buy some new Michael Kors shades! An Aussie girl living in London who is about to take on the big apple after just being been signed with Ford Models in New York City.

It’s so inspiring to see a real body taking on the tall, skinny ones and really kicking some butt! I love Sophie’s outlook on life - positive, relaxed and as eye catching as her delicious digital print blazer!
Sophie's own fashion philosophy, as she states it in the article, is chic yet pro-curvy. I love the fact that she wears colour -- and fitted fashion as well.

Thank you, Pamela, for this great post on Sophie Sheppard. Miss Sheppard is fast becoming one of my very favorites here on the Judgment of Paris. Sophie exudes confidence, yet there is a sweet, angelic quality to her photos. Kelsey Olson is totally beautiful, but there is something about Sophie....a soft, almost vulnerable aura. It is so good to know that she is embarking on an exciting modeling career in New York City; she is such a wonderful credit to plus-size beauty.

As posted by her Sydney agency, Bella Models, Sophie also recently appeared in an ad for Target in Australia.

The photos are gorgeous:


She has the face of an angel and the figure of a goddess. Breathtaking.
