View Full Version : Kelsey in the Mountains

15th August 2013, 14:35
<br>Just yesterday, Sealed with a Kiss released a new lookbook that reunites the team of Kelson Olson and Michael Anthony Hermogeno, and the results are a splendid as fans have come to expect from this celebrated artistic pairing.

Cleverly titled "Summer Set," the shoot takes Kelsey into the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area for a tribute to the last day of summer furlough prior to a return to the rigours of September schoolwork.<p><center><a href="http://www.swakdesigns.com/images/lookbook/august2013/cover.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelsey/swak/aug01a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>The most exciting picture from the photo session, and an altogether exemplary presentation of full-figured feminine beauty, is the following image, which, thrillingly, showcases the model's rounded, uncompressed, 39" waist, attractively defined by her fitted white top, while also exhibiting her rich voluptuousness. The sunlight gilds Kelsey's tresses as she smiles playfully at the viewer, a twinkle of mischief in her eyes, knowing full well that no one could resist a goddess as alluringly well-fed as this. Of all figure features, there is no sight so lovely as that of a soft, rounded middle--ironically, the aspect of their bodies about which curvy girls are likeliest to feel self-conscious, but needlessly so, for, as Kelsey so vividly demonstrates, a generous midsection is the most sensually seductive characteristic that any vixen can possess.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelsey/swak/aug02.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelsey/swak/aug02a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>The colour palette for these outdoor photos is pleasing to the eye, demonstrating once again the immense benefit of shooting outdoors. The coral pink of Kesley's sweater plays off against the blue sky, rich greenery, and sandy soil. Notice how the model deftly interacts with the environment.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelsey/swak/aug03.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelsey/swak/aug03a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>Kelsey's pose in the next picture is especially captivating, a dreamy stance, with her arms spread wide, that suggests relaxation and ease. The shadows generated by her top highlight her buxom magnificence.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelsey/swak/aug04.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelsey/swak/aug04a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>Mr. Hermogeno's use of the environment is particularly adept in the following photo. Notice how the gnarled timber and rough grasses and soil provide an appropriate context for this outfit, with its earth-tone boots and charcoal sweater.<p><center><a href="http://www.swakdesigns.com/images/lookbook/august2013/page5.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelsey/swak/aug05a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>Kelsey's facial features glow with an angelic radiance, as if lit from within, while she strokes her golden tresses--just as the viewer would long to do. The top offers a discreet view of her decolletage, but, most tantalizing of all, once again indicates a swell of fullness at her lovely waist.<p><center><a href="http://www.swakdesigns.com/images/lookbook/august2013/page5.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelsey/swak/aug05b.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>Another example of the photographer's keen eye for colour presents itself below, with the dark greenery and yellow flowers richly complementing the vivid lilac hue of Miss Olson's dress.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelsey/swak/aug06.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelsey/swak/aug06a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>It is when one comes in closer, however, that the full measure of the model's allure becomes evident. The dress clings to her rounded voluptuousness, showcasing her buxom curves in so vivid a manner as to make the viewer dizzy with desire. The sash below her bust augments the effect, while also pressing the fabric sensually against her soft middle. The fairness of Kelsey's complexion is breathtaking, giving her a vulnerable, delicate quality, for all that she is so robustly shaped.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelsey/swak/aug06.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelsey/swak/aug06b.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>The next picture, however, is even more arresting in its sensuality, rivalling even the first pink-sweater photo in this thread for unbridled allure. Observe how Kelsey's luscious, 39" waist creates a seductive swell of fullness at her middle, even as she languidly runs her fingers through her hair, creating the impression of a goddess of supreme indolence and self-indulgence.
<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelsey/swak/aug07.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelsey/swak/aug07a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>A closer look find her appearing more vulnerable, uncertain, needy. Kelsey has ever had a special talent for generating looks of the sweetest girlishness, which, combined with her innately doll-like appearance, creates an irresistible impression of femininity.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelsey/swak/aug08.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelsey/swak/aug08a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>The benefits that accrue to a goddess when she possesses long, fair hair are immeasurable and vividly evident, as demonstrated in the following picture, showing Kelsey coquettishly stroking her blonde hair as she gazes at the viewer with obvious desire. However, notice how the model's features soften the effect. Her oh-so-pretty face looks feloniously youthful, almost childlike, the fresh countenance of a young schoolgirl, while her blue eyes appear innocent and earnest.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelsey/swak/aug09.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelsey/swak/aug09a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>In this dress, on the other hand, Kelsey transforms into a witchier mode, now a dangerous seductress, mysterious and enigmatic. The composition exemplifies further clever placement by Michael Anthony: Note how the skeletal branches to the left of the frame seem to stretch out, like thin fingers, toward the model. The light hue of the grassy background sets the dark dress into stark relief. Who would dare follow this treacherous Kelsey down the winding path behind her? But then, after taking one look at her loveliness, who could resist?<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelsey/swak/aug10.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelsey/swak/aug10a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>The final photograph that we will share here (although further images are available in the complete lookbook, linked below) once again finds Kelsey in her gorgeous lilac dress, with its exciting sweetheart neckline offering a plentiful view of the model's ample voluptuousness. Her laugh expresses all the joy of her being--and whose heart, upon looking at her, could fail to be likewise gladdened? This picture even captures a hint of a curve under the chin, that most attractive of feminine facial features.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelsey/swak/aug11.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/kelsey/swak/aug11a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>But wait: One more treat arising from this shoot awaits fans of Miss Olson--a captivating video that presents scenes from the making of this lookbook. Beautiful as Kelsey is in all of her print work, she is even more gorgeous on film. Watch in particular for heart-stopping close-ups that show just how unimaginably huge Kelsey's blue eyes actually are (Diseny-princess eyes, to be sure), especially at around 2:11 and following, a point at which the viewer will also be treated to the unlikely experience of hearing Kelsey <i>sing,</i> as she strums her guitar.<p><center><iframe src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/72378538?title=0&amp;byline=0&amp;portrait=0&amp;color=aa00ff" width="690" height="388" frameborder="0" webkitAllowFullScreen mozallowfullscreen allowFullScreen></iframe></center></p>Bravo to Sealed with a Kiss for putting together this gorgeous new campaign, and for once again paring breathtakingly beautiful Kelsey Olson with prodigiously talented photographer Michael Anthony Hermogeno to work their remarkable magic.

Miss Olson, who is as lovely and angelic as ever, continues to embody timeless beauty for a generation that longs to see the return of full-figured femininity to cultural prominence. If an aesthetic restoration is ever achieved, it will be because Kelsey's fair image has been graven in countless human hearts.
