View Full Version : Introducing Elle (12plusUK)

8th September 2013, 19:22
<br>Although 12plusUK has been serving the European full-figured fashion market for over a decade, it is only now, at last, that the agency has debuted a goddess of the highest order.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/elle/elle01.jpg"></center><p>Her name is <strong>Elle</strong>, listed as a British size 16 (which variously translates to a U.S. size 14 or 12/14), and although we earnestly wish that she were fuller-figured, she otherwise exhibits every trait of timeless feminine beauty. Her magnificent tresses are long and fair, her eyes a passive blue. Her facial features are round and gentle.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/elle/elle02.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/elle/elle02a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>Although she is merely a British size 16, her figure is soft and natural, as evidenced by the sensual swell of fullness at her arms. Note too the captivatingly languid manner in which she poses. Clearly this is a born superstar.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/elle/elle02.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/elle/elle02b.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>In the following photographs from Elle's first test shoot, observe her rich voluptuousness, so attractively exhibited by the intimate apparel. She coyly opens her skirt to exhibit her soft, shapely legs, and gazes at an unseen suitor just off camera with an alluring look of invitation. <i>"Embrace me, if you dare,"</i> she seems to say, her expectation of worship a passive challenge to her admirers.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/elle/elle04.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/elle/elle04a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>The sight of so much beauty would intimidate even the bravest suitor, so in her next image, Elle flashes a gentle smile, as if to reassure her besotted admirers, well aware of the power than her well-fed loveliness gives her over all men. Her buxom curves appear especially rich and opulent.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/elle/elle05.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/elle/elle05a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>To her credit, Elle is equally adept at generating looks of steamy seductiveness and expressions of reassuring sweetness, as seen below. Her voluptuous contours make the viewer's heart race, however the most sensual detail in this image is the way in which her strap presses into the soft flesh of her delicate shoulder. Her mane of golden hair seems to radiate its own magical light as it flows in thick profusion over her bare skin.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/elle/elle03.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/elle/elle03a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>Although the model's waist isn't as full as one would wish it to be, her 44" hips constitute an especially attractive figure feature. In this image, those generous proportions shape the outline of her skirt into an ample, womanly form.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/elle/elle06.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/elle/elle06a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>Elle finds herself in an ideal situation, age-wise, vis--vis plus-size modelling, for she exhibits both a girlish quality and a mature seductiveness--indeed, all the more alluring given her youthfulness. Observe here the intensely sensual detail of the crease of flesh in her rounded arm.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/elle/elle07.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/elle/elle07a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>Elle also possesses an innately glamorous appearance, as these images demonstrate, particularly when she adopts an enticing gesture such as this, while showing off the bountifulness of her buxom curves.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/elle/elle08.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/elle/elle08a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>The following headshot displays the exquisite fairness of Elle's complexion, her peaches-and-cream freshness, with immaculate white skin (accentuated by the effective lighting) and a whisper of a flush at the cheeks. Her expression is youthfully earnest.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/elle/elle09.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/elle/elle09a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>A profile view of the model similarly accessorized finds her in a contemplative mood. The feathery hair accessory is an enchanting touch, emphasizing Elle's fairy-like prettiness.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/elle/elle10.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/elle/elle10b.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>And finally, as if to remind viewers that Elle is not just a goddess of wealth and privilege but also a real-life young woman, this photograph presents her in more casual attire, thought the attractive scoop neckline reminds one of her voluptuous charms. The model's playing-with-the-hair gesture is delightfully flirtatious, her expression almost childlike in its innocence.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/elle/elle11.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/elle/elle11a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>In Elle, 12plusUK has finally discovered a timeless beauty of the first order. Fans earnestly hope that she might become a tad fuller-figured, for if she does, she could blossom into one of the world's most significant plus-size models.

We look forward to future promotional materials from the agency featuring this model (such as a video reel) and wish Elle every success.

Is it just me, or do the two beauty shots with the charming feathered accessory call to mind some early shots of Shannon Marie in Mode? Elle definitely exemplifies the fair complexion that manages to shy away from pale with her rosy cheeks. And although as aforementioned she does not, unfortunately, have a full waist, I do think that she deserves commendation for being full-figured. In the last couple years there has been a proliferation of plus-size models in the industry who are virtually identical to "minus-size" models. In the end, the nomenclature means nothing if the girls don't embody it. As long as she at the very least does not diminish I think she can be a great, authentic success.
