And now, the climax of it all -- images from photographer Richard Lew of the exciting finale of Full Figured Fashion Week 2012.

The venue looks stunning -- like a Greek temple -- and the runway looks enchanting, laid out with flowers.

Katherine Roll walked for three designers at this event, and looked gorgeous in every one.

Her most breathtaking appearance was in the final show -- the finale of finales -- an incredible "Bridal Inspiration for Plus Size Brides" show, courtesy of The Pretty Pear.

Katherine is veritably a bridal-show specialist, so it's no wonder she looks so outstanding in this gown. Amazingly, this is an even-more-beautiful hairstyle than the one she wore the day before, for the Indie Designer show. She truly resembles a storybook princess:

This is without a doubt my favourite picture from any FFFWeek, ever:

So gorgeous from the back too:

As the bridal presentation closed the night, Katherine wore the gown for the final applause turn by the models as well:

I wish there were more than two images of the next look. Here's Katherine on the runway for MYNT 1792 -- the brand for which she is the official face (and figure). She looks so angelic in white, while those pants fit her delectable figure like a second skin, defining her every perfect curve.

Katherine also walked the runway for Lane Bryant for the second year in a row. Goodness knows that she outshines any and every LB print model. If Lane Bryant were to feature Katherine in its ads, the public would go wild with enthusiasm. She looks terrific in this eye-catching outfit, with those wild boots.

Jenn Purviance also walked the runway at the finale, in her case for two designers. Blessedly, one of those was the bridal showcase. Jenn looks fantastic in her white gown:

Gorgeous and truly curvy models, stylish fashions, a breathtaking venue -- FFFWeek continues to be the finest runway presentation in the world, and more than that, the most size-positive, pro-curvy event that the full-figured fashion industry has ever known.

MYNT 1792 has now released a video of FFFWeek, showing brief glimpses behind the scenes as well as shots from the runway show.

You simply won't believe how gorgeous Katherine Roll looks in this clip. Watch for her at 1:23 in the video, and then again at 1:33

Luscious. Gorgeous. Breathtaking.

<br>If there were ever any doubts that Katherine Roll is the ideal plus-size model, those have now been allayed by the appearance of this video.

Miss Roll is without question the most gorgeous model in the industry today, and this video clip is such a perfect depiction of full-figured beauty that, as Chad states, it truly must be seen to be believed.

First, Katherine is seen dramatically opening her jacket, like a blossoming white rose. Observe the alluring self-satisfaction with which she accomplishes this gesture, as if she knew that she were unwrapping the most priceless of all treasures. Her blonde tresses flow over her shoulders in luxurious waves. Her pants fit her like a second skin, defining her generous, womanly hips.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kr/mv02.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kr/mv02a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>In a heart-stopping moment of incalculable beauty, Katherine turns to allow the viewer to see her delectable profile--a profile of the shapeliest figure that any plus-size model has ever possessed. Yes, she exhibits buxom voluptuousness, but it is the sight of the soft swell at her waist that makes her truly irresistible. The untoned fullness of her physique is intoxicating.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kr/mv05.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kr/mv05a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>Observe too the look of eagerness on the model's face, the sheer delight that she experiences at the rapt admiration of her admirers. She positive drinks in the viewer's worship of her beauty, feeding off the adoration, luxuriating in it. She knows that her attractions are incomparable, and basks in the confirmation of her high self-regard.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kr/mv06.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kr/mv06a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>As she allows her top to slip tantalizingly down her arms, the viewer sees the thick, heavy curls tumbling down her back. One easily imagines the jacket as being a robe that a princess might shrug off her shoulders.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kr/mv08.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kr/mv08a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>But wait--the pièce de résistance is yet to come. As Katherine turns her back on the audience, she performs a coquettish hair flip, as if to drive her admirers to madness, teasing them with the luxuriant tresses that they dream to touch. Her golden hair veritably seems on fire in this still. And observe how gracefully she enacts this flirtatious gesture. Like her profile turn on the runway, her every movement is languid and feminine.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kr/mv10.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kr/mv10a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>The video adds a final treat--a glimpse of the model being escorted by a MYNT 1792 representative at the close of the runway show. Watch how vivaciously she casts a glance over her shoulders as she departs, as if eager to absorb a moment's further admiration of her beauty.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kr/mv13.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kr/mv13a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>Her snug pants closely define her reverse-view curves, further confirming her title as the perfect plus-size model, with the most stunning figure that any goddess has ever possessed.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kr/mv11.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kr/mv11a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>Bravo to MYNT 1792 for an outstanding runway show, an exceptional video, and to Katherine for showing an industry limited by its faux-plus mindset what a true plus-size model <i>should</I> look like.

After seeing those pictures of Katherine, I'm conviced that she would make a PERFECT denim model. She ranks right up there with Kailee O'Sullivan, Ashley Graham, etc.

Here's the video of the Evie Foster show, with Jenn Purviance walking the runway at 1:30.

The video gives an even better sense of her luscious figure, especially her shapely arms, than the still images do. She moves her 53" hips in a seductive way. Stunning!

Now, here's the video that everyone has been waiting for: the bridal showcase.

From the still images, it was already clear that this was the high point of FFFWeek. And the video confirms it.

In fact, the sight of Katherine Roll at 1:30 is the most beautiful real-life depiction of a fairy-tale princess I've ever seen. She looks too gorgeous to be believed.

Also, watch for Jenn Purviance at 2:57.

Nothing can match the Pretty Pair bridal showcase, but the Lane Bryant runway event is a fantastic eyeful as well.

Watch for the amazingly gorgeous Katherine Roll at 1:45. This event really is all about her. She wears the sunniest, most beautiful smile I've ever seen, looking utterly delighted with herself - as she should be.

The high boots define her shapely legs and give the outfit pizzazz. And oh, those long, blonde tresses are the locks of a princess. She's just too beautiful for words.
