View Full Version : Sophie Sheppard for NKD
27th April 2013, 21:05
It's so exciting to see a size-16/18 model with Sophie Sheppard's opulent measurements -- 38dd-41-49 -- achieving so much career success. And how wonderful that that model is Sophie in particular, who is so astoundingly beautiful.
She current appears on the cover page, no less, of NKD, which is one of the top retail chains in Germany. The Europeans are generally still a step behind the U.S. in featuring true plus-size models in their advertising, so this is a real sign of progress.
Here's Sophie's cover image.

You can see it full size on the NKD home page. It's so amazing to have a legitimately curvy goddess as the company's cover model. It would be like putting a plus-size model on the cover of the JCPenney or Sears home pages, where everyone could see her:
Here's the direct link to the plus-size-fashion section of the NKD site:
At the moment, Sophie only appears modelling one item, the one that features on the NKD cover page, but I expect that the company will be featuring much more of her in the future.
That one photograph is stunning though. No wonder NKD made it the cover of their Web site. It shows the soft fullness in her facial features and limbs, as well as her fair, peaches-and-cream complexion.

Bravo to Sophie for another career success, and to NKD for booking such a gorgeous and genuinely full-figured model.

NKD clearly recognizes what a stunning model they have in Sophie. After seeing the above news, I signed up for the e-mail list, and shortly afterwards received this flyer, with Sophie's image featured prominently:
I can't wait to see more of her work for this company. She's clearly a North European beauty by her heritage, that I'm sure the Germans would easily adopt her as one of their own.
<br>NKD has just released its latest online flyer, which features not just one, but two images of lovely Miss Sheppard. And in fact, Sophie's pictures are not situated at the back of the magazine, but right in front, in the first two pages, thus giving plus-size beauty its deserved place of privilege and priority, and relegating the underweight, minus-size models to the back, where they belong.
Sophie's first photograph occupies an entire page in the flyer. With the colourful balloons, the vintage furniture on the dock, and the lakeside setting, it is a marvellously festive image, a snapshot of a summer party at the cottage, perhaps in the lakes nearby Berlin (for remember, NKD is a German client).<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/nkd01.png" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/nkd01a.png" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>A closer view allows one to immerse onself in this vision of delight, and to watch how Sophie's fair tresses flutter the breeze, the sunlight illuminating them in a golden radiance, as if they were the magical locks of an earthbound angel. Sophie herself looks relaxed and playful, clearly loving every minute of having her beauty celebrated--for she is the reason all this exists. Observe how the inset image highlights her generous reverse-view curves.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/nkd01.png" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/nkd01b.png" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>A smaller but wider view from the flyer encompasses more of the setting, showing how the environment picks up the colours in her pretty, breezy, feminine top--the fuchsia highlighting the pink and the leaves of the outdoor backdrop highlighting the green.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/nkd01.png" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/nkd01d.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>Sophie's second page in the flyer mostly consists of promotional material, but note the eye-catching inset image.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/nkd02.png" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/nkd02a.png" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>It offers a discreet glimpse of the model looking sensually soft and docile, her peaches-and-cream skin tone set off by her pink lip colour and the pink letters in her hand, while her princess-like tresses cascade over her bare shoulders, venturing towards her generous decolletage. Alas, the pose modestly hides a view of her 41" waist, the sight of which would surely drive every viewer in the world to distraction.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/nkd02.png" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/nkd02d.png" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>Bravo to NKD for booking one of the world's most gorgeous and popular plus-size models for its summer campaign. The images, as they are being released, are turning out to be just as captivating as one might have expected. We eagerly look forward to more.

More of Sophie now appears at the NKD site, including a picture of the model in this sleeveless top. The photograph is quite lovely, as it gives the best sense yet of the model's size-16/18 figure, suggesting fullness around the middle and in her reverse-view curves.
The two items in the flyer are also now available in NKD's online catalogue, including the pretty blouse. I love how festive this picture is, with all of the balloons. Sophie's golden hair truly is princess-like.
Sophie fans will undoubtedly be most delighted to see this full-size version of her intimate-apparel image. With her soft physique, Miss Sheppard is the perfect intimate-apparel model, so it's encouraging to see more labels casting her to model such garments.
Now let's hope for an NKD swimwear collection modelled on Sophie!

NKD definitely appreciates the beauty of their muse, Sophie Sheppard. Her intimate-apparel image now appears in rotation on the company home page:
No doubt, NKD realized that images of Sophie would draw in far more viewers than pictures of minus-size models.
She really is a perfect model for NKD, as she has that kind of soft, blonde beauty which could make anyone mistake her for a young German Fräulein. I look forward to even more photos from this summer campaign.

More love for Sophie in NKD's latest e-mail ad:
What makes this so encouraging is that NKD is a general retailer, so for the company to be featuring Miss Sheppard so prominently in its advertising means that it really believes in plus-size beauty.
A new issue of NKD's weekly flyer has now been posted online.
Sophie features in one lovely page, showing her in a cute pink outfit.
Her figure isn't clearly visible, but her long, blonde tresses look gorgeous, illuminated as they are by the afternoon sunlight, and her blue eyes appear gentle and dreamy. With the cocktail in her hand, she appears serenely satisfied and relaxed. You can almost feel the warm breeze just by looking at this idyllic photo.
Utterly gorgeous work from Sophie, as always. She's an angel.

The image of Sophie from the latest NKD flyer now appears on a product page of its own. She looks so pretty in these tropical colours.
Also, a new image of Miss Sheppard- a very attractive one, which actually suggests the genuine fullness of her figure- has also debuted.
I love how her golden tresses cascade over her shoulders, and in this picture, you get a hint of the attractive fullness of her arms.
