I was delighted to find a new campaign featuring gorgeous plus-size model Kelsey Olson, now a size 16/18, at Rachel Pally. She appears throughout the label's new look book:

This is probably the most pro-curvy image, showing Kelsey in a body-hugging red ruched dress.

A second red dress from the collection also embraces her curves, and attractively shows off her bare shoulders.

This photo really stood out to me, not only because it's the lone item in the collection in this pretty shade of yellow, which is very flattering on Miss Olson, with her fair skin, but also because of the measured messiness in the hairstyle. I love the touch of wildness in Kelsey's tresses.

Two items come in this traditional-looking, feminine print. I especially like this design, with its abbreviated length and the open sleeves. The belt doesn't compress Kelsey's luscious 39" waist, but accentuates her bust and her middle.

Another very attractive hairstyle on Kelsey, with her tresses the fairest of hues, and the bare-shoulder cut of the dress is quite sensual.

Many of the fabrics are presented in two or three different styles. For this lovely print, there's no question that the strapless, sleeveless cut is infinitely more attractive. The bare expanse of unbroken, soft flesh at Kelsey's neck is the prettiest accessory of all.

Between the next two, the thin-strap style is my preference. As a general rule, less fabric = more beauty.

I adore the wild, windblown, measured messiness of Kelsey's hairstyle in the first of these two photographs showing her in white. Her fairy-tale tresses have always made her a princess come to life.

The next outfit pairs a white top with a blue print that we'll see again shortly. The abbreviated skirt shows off the model's beautiful legs.

Here's that print again, in two different dress styles. Both are equally pretty, but the first picture is much more dramatic, with the model's tresses caught by a gust of wind and flowing in a romantic way.

That same print, except in brown and black, shows up in the next two skirts. I love how the top in the first image clings to every gorgeous curve of Kelsey's figure, even showing off her sensually rounded middle. The flirtatious pose is captivating.

With her fair eyes, Kelsey always looks good in every shade of blue, including this royal-blue colour. The first two outfits are interesting, but the third is a bit too formless, constituting just an unbroken slab of fabric.

Even though the next outfits are black and white, the interesting print seen first in the skirt, then in the dresses, is eye-catching. The off-the-shoulder top bares a discreet hint of bare white skin.

The spaghetti-strap style is, however, the most alluring, exposing the model's soft, rounded arms and a lavish dose of her neckline.

Nicely fitted around the hips.

And finally, Rachel Pally offers a multitude of items in black. Kelsey makes them look very chic and elegant, and her fair hair has the effect of jewellery against the fabric, a profusion of rich gold setting off the black material.

Very pretty "surprised" expression here:

It's altogether a stunning collection from Rachel Pally, modelled to perfection by Kelsey, looking as gorgeous as ever.
