View Full Version : Sophie Sheppard at Ashley Stewart: Best Dressed

2nd April 2014, 22:27
<br>Lest anyone doubt that ultra-gorgeous plus-size stunner Sophie Sheppard--Wilhelmina NY, size 16/18--is the most curvaceous and beautiful model in the world today, her most recent dress images for Ashley Stewart will amply confirm her title of "fairest of them all."

Indeed, these photographs are such superlative presentations of ideal femininity that we can safely say that no magazine--not <i>Vogue,</I> not <i>Elle,</I> none of them--could ever, even in their most artistic editorials, present a model looking as breathtaking as Miss Sheppard does in these commercial images.

Sophie's most subversive figure feature is, of course, the luscious swell of roundness that this eye-catching Ashley Stewart hot pink dress so lovingly displays. It is preicsely this characteristic that defines Sophie as a true plus-size model--indeed, as a living goddess. To its shame, the fashion industry (minus-size and faux-plus alike) systematically suppresses any trace of this physical trait, but such boldly exhibited midsection curves are the most feminine, most alluring qualities that any young woman can possess, and in this image, Sophie demonstrates just how irresistible a physique so naturally opulent and well-fed can be.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as70.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as70a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>Of course, no one gazing at Sophie in this exciting attire could fail to come in closer and, in so doing, be mesmerized by her every lovely feature. Her tresses cascade over her shoulder in thick masses of spun gold--truly the locks of a fairy-tale princess (for when the Old World's greatest fairy-tales were written, it was assuredly Sophie's visage that the authors always had in mind as their ideal of a storybook princess). Even more thrilling, though, is the unabashed vanity that the model displays as she coyly runs her fingers through that hair, inflaming the viewer's desire still further, as if she were saying, <i>"Just look at how gorgeous I am; surely you would give up your very soul to be able to caress these golden locks."</i> Her smile beams with contentment and self-satisfaction. And in an especially seductive detail, note how her finger presses into the tantalizing fullness at her middle--this too teasing the viewer, for any man who but glances at this image will never desire any experience in life more desperately than to be able to achieve tactile engagement with that soft waist.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as70.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as70b.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>The reverse image of this outfit is, amazingly, every bit as mesmerizing as the fore view. Sophie is justly renowned for having the most appealing hinder contours of any model in the world today, but this photo reveals another figure feature which is even <i>more</I> seductive: the curves of flesh along the model's back and sides, just above the waist. The viewer grows dizzy with desire at the sight of such superlatively feminine sensuality. Sophie's untoned curves represent the zenith of beauty that one can ever hope to witness on this terrestrial sphere.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as69.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as69a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>A second fore view of this item is somewhat more conventional in composition, but Sophie's images are never anything less than pro-curvy masterpieces, for even this photograph acknowledges a shapely aspect of her physique: in this case, her womanly, 49" hips. The viewer's eyes also linger on her thick tresses arranged in heavy, half-undone curls, which suggest the model's own opulence and lassitude.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as68.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as68a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>Be sure to view this item's <a href="http://www.ashleystewart.com/chain-detail-dress/402008412852.html" target="_blank">product page</a> to view a <strong>video</strong> of Sophie in this dress. As is so often the case in full-figured fashion, the video even more boldly exhibits the model's robust roundness and Classical curves than do her still images.<p><center><iframe src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/85746802?title=0&amp;byline=0&amp;portrait=0&amp;color=aa00ff" width="690" height="388" frameborder="0" webkitAllowFullScreen mozallowfullscreen allowFullScreen></iframe></center></p>Another new Ashley Stewart dress is rather more modern in its print than we usually favour, but the colours themselves look terrific on Sophie, and the item hugs her curves in a most appealing manner.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as73.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as73a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>A larger view allows the viewer to delight in every aspect of Miss Sheppard's lusciousness, including the roundness of her arms.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as73.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as73b.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>A look at the back shows off the generous proportions of the model's acclaimed reverse-view curves.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as72.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as72a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>When a goddess is blessed with womanly, 49" hips, as is Sophie, then it would be unforgivable for her <i>not</I> to embrace those contours in body-conscious attire such as this.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as71.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as71a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>A closer view of the model's visage proves to be every bit as size-celebratory as the full-length photograph, for in this captivating headshot we see just how much the extra avoirdupois in Sophie's figure has enhanced her facial beauty as well. The fullness in her face is pulse-poundingly sensual, especially the luscious curve under her chin. Her fair skin, golden tresses, and steamy blue eyes epitomize ideal female beauty, but the visible weight in her face makes her a goddess beyond any other; not since Shannon Marie has any model possessed such a gorgeous countenance.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as71.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as71c.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>Be sure to visit the item's <a href="http://www.ashleystewart.com/color-block-peekaboo-sheath-dress/AS-021538_D1042PRP-PT.html?dwvar_AS-021538__D1042PRP-PT_color=multi" target="_blank">product page</a> to view an exciting video of Miss Sheppard modelling this outfit, with footage that shows off her well-fed beauty to even better advantage than do her still images.<p><center><iframe src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/85746800?title=0&amp;byline=0&amp;portrait=0&amp;color=aa00ff" width="690" height="388" frameborder="0" webkitAllowFullScreen mozallowfullscreen allowFullScreen></iframe></center></p>Although this linen dress is, regrettably, not as form fitting as is the apparel featured above, the pink hue so perfectly complements Sophie's fair skin and golden tresses that we must count this as one of the most appealing items that she has ever modelled. The outline of her body intimates the lavish breadth of her proportions.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as117.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as117a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>One cannot help but come in closer to obtain a better view of the eye-catching manner in which Sophie coquettishly plunges her hand into her 24-karat golden tresses. The sheer pleasure that she takes in her own beauty is intoxicating.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as117.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as117b.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>The greatest excitement, however, comes when Miss Sheppard removes her jacket and shows off the dress in its sleeveless glory. The subtlest hint of roundness at the model's midsection energizes the photograph with a sensual quality.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as113.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as113a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>The back angle is even more thrilling, however, in that the ample fullness of Sophie's reverse-view curves shapes the dress into an abundant, womanly form.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as114.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as114a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>Scarcely any sight exists more dizzying in its effect than the glimpse of so much plump flesh beautifying the model's back. Her skin looks delicate and pillowlike, suggesting the softness that a goddess can acquire only through unimpeded self-indulgence. Observe too the sensual creases of fullness at the model's neck.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as114.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as114b.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>After such wonders, one would expect that the front view of the outfit, with the cover on, would be a more conventional image--but Sophie's pictures are never anything less than mesmerizing. Observe how the jewellery complements her spun-gold hairstyle and robust appearance to create an impression of richly deserved wealth and privilege.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as115.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as115a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>A closer view of this photograph reveals the true benefits of enlisting the services of a genuinely full-figured model in a plus-size fashion promotion. The heart-racingly sensual weight in her face, so clearly the rich features of a well-fed goddess, is dramatically evident, with Sophie's high cheekbones softened by facial fullness, the hint of a seductive curve under her chin, and the smooth, boneless slopes of flesh at her neck area all giving her the cherubic look of an angel in human form.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as115.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as115c.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>Linen as a fabric has a particular charm, even when it lacks the irresistible prettiness of the pink hue shown above. Olive may not, at first blush, seem to be Sophie's ideal colour, yet look at how comely she appears in this dress. In particular, this is one of the prettiest variations that we have yet seen of her trademark hairstyle, with her voluminous tresses cascading in waves of gold along her shoulder. The curve under her chin is enchanting, and her smile is filled with well-deserved self-assurance and conveys a mischievous touch of invitation.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as118.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as118b.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>The reverse view offers an appealing suggestion of the generous substantiality of her fine figure.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as119.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as119a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>In truth, however, it would be inexcusable for a goddess as perfectly proportioned as is Miss Sheppard <i>not</I> to wear tightly fitted clothing. The following dress may, in part, be black (and curvy girls should generally avoid black, as it tragically erases the visibility of their contours), but note how much the item benefits from the stylish, purple diagonal panel across the wearer's midsection and down the thigh--that purple segment highlighting an alluring swell of roundness at the model's lower middle.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as81.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as81a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>The image provides another exciting opportunity to view Sophie's facial features up close. The extra weight in her face has given her adorable apple cheeks and added a sensual curve under the chin. Observe how the necklace gently presses into the soft flesh at her neck. Her tresses are thick and heavy, arranged in big, half-uncurled waves, generating a seductive look of indolent beauty to match the steamy lassitude of Sophie's expression. <p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as81.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as81c.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>The back image shows how effectively the inspired colour pattern of the dress works its magic on the model's hinder curves: the panel helping to highlight her copious contours.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as83.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as83a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>The above images were all produced as part of Miss Sheppard's most recent Ashley Stewart campaign. The following dress photos, on the other hand, date from several weeks earlier. Even between the two series of pictures, one can see has much lovelier Sophie has become in the more recent images. Nevertheless, she is captivating in these early stills as well, especially in this seductively body-hugging blue dress, which lovingly clings to her 49" hips.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as60.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as60a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>A second pose even more dramatically showcases the opulent fullness of the her figure. What makes Sophie's physique the most perfectly proportioned of any currently working model's is that she combines the best features of each body type: the voluptuousness of the hourglass, the desirably full waist of the apple, and the womanly hips of the pear-shaped physique.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as62.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as62a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>The result is a figure that is a composite of Classical perfection. Observe how the ruched fabric of the dress defines her opulent contours. Her facial features likewise exhibit a hint of a curve under the chin, contributing to the overall impression of privilege and plenty.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as61.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as61b.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>Sophie takes a walk on the wilder side in this animal-print item, which confirms that she makes <i>everything</I> look good (even if the pink-hued and colourful dresses featured earlier in this thread better agree with her blonde beauty).<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as57.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as57b.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>Here again we see that fascinating effect whereby Miss Sheppard's aureate tresses approximate the lustre of the costliest gold, becoming yet another kind of jewellery to match her gilded, diamond-encrusted necklace and earrings.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as55.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as55b.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>In this animal-print garb, the model's sinuous, reverse-view curves call to mind the contours of a predatory feline, one of the big cats of the hottest jungles, which are renowned as much for their sleek beauty as for their rapacious appetites.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as56.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as56a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>In this dynamic image of Sophie in a grey dress, observe how the monochrome hue provides an ideal, neutral backdrop for her fair tresses and vibrant complexion, drawing the viewer's attention toward her lovely features. The dress attractively embraces her rounded hips.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as63.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as63a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>The final item in Miss Sheppard's dress promotion comes with a print that is, shall we say, a matter of taste. Nevertheless, Sophie's images always merit a view, and she manages to make even this number eye-catching, due to her innate beauty and how her figure forms the dress into an alluring shape.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as58.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as58b.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>The reverse view offers one enticing detail, apart from a lovely glimpse of the model's hinder curves: the keyhole cutout at the back. A note to all plus-size designers: any opportunity to exhibit at least a modicum of bare flesh endows even the most conventional item with a touch of pizzazz. This is the "body as fashion accessory" principle of full-figured attire, which maintains that the sight of the soft fullness of a curvy girl's physique is ever her greatest styling asset.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as59.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ss/as/as59a.jpg" border="0" title="Click to enlarge" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>Bravo to Ashley Stewart for another outstanding campaign with gorgeous plus-size model Sophie Sheppard--the most beautiful talent in the industry today, and one who rivals Shannon Marie as the most stunning full-figured goddess of all time. Sophie is currently the loveliest that she has ever been, as the most recent images in this post demonstrate, and these Ashley Stewart bodycon dresses show off her curves in the finest possible manner.

We earnestly look forward to seeing more of this acclaimed client/model partnership in the near future (and we continue to hope to one day see Sophie modelling swimwear or intimate apparel for A.S.).
