Saks Fifth Avenue isn't generally known as a repository of images of plus-size beauty, given that it tends to book models on the faux-plus side. However, Kailee O'Sullivan recently modelled for the company, showing off some very pretty looks.

The most interesting aspect of her work for Saks is the series of short videos that she filmed, showing off every piece she modelled. All of these clips have been spliced together into the following composite video, with Ravel's "Bolero" as a soundtrack. It's a pity that the camera cuts off her facial features at the head of the runway, but Kailee has always been a pleasure to watch on the catwalk. Notice how alarmingly high are some of the heels that she wears - yet she never misses a step, and always walks with grace and a touch of slinky sexiness.

All in all, Kailee models something like 66 items for Saks. Here are a few of the most interesting ones.

This one is called a "Rain Top," and frankly, it's just about the most alluring thing that a goddess can wear, short of bare-midriff swimwear. Men can't help themselves but be captivated by the sight of a girl showing off her soft shoulders like this. Plus, the way the top is designed, it creates the illusion that it's precariously perched and could slip down lower at any time. Utterly sensual.

Such an adorably girlish Lace Dress:

As the name implies, this "Bow-Back Dress" needs to be seen from the reverse view to be fully appreciated. Watch for it in the video.

Not only does this "Ruched Kitten Dress" have a flirty, feminine name, but it's marvellously fitted close to the body, as seen in the video.

The Saks site features many further images of Kailee in a variety of looks, all of which appear in the video. Kailee does a marvellous job showing them all off.

Thank you, Hannah for posting this video of Kailee modeling the Saks Fifth Avenue clothing. I loved all the dresses and watching a true plus-size beauty featured is exactly what full-figured women want to see.
