View Full Version : ''Beauty Reborn'' with Charlotte Coyle!

6th February 2006, 17:39
<br>Although this entire post will sound like a fantasy, or a fable, it is all scrupulously, thrillingly <i>true</i>--every single word of it.

The ultimate in timeless beauty will soon be appearing on <strong>prime-time television</strong> in the United Kingdom.

Channel 4, which is the <i>top</i> commercial TV network in England (ABC, NBC and CBS all rolled into one) has been filming a "reality show" over the past several months, documenting every beautiful and exciting moment in the life of plus-size goddess Charlotte Coyle.

And now, most excitingly of all, in the <i>pièce de résistance </i> of the program, for the series's last and ultimate episode, the show has organized a major media event titled:<p><center><strong>BEAUTY REBORN</strong></center><p>Billed as <i>"A Beauty Contest for Voluptuous Women,"</i> this is something of a cross between the greatest of the Lane Bryant lingerie shows (remember how alluring Kate Dillon and other plus-size goddesses looked in those?),<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/lbshow01a.jpg"></center><p>and <i>America's Next Top Model</i> (but exclusively for curvaceous contestants).

Miss Coyle herself tells us that the event promises to feature a <i>"burlesque / Moulin Rouge"</i> theme, <i>("very feminine,")</i> and goes on to explain the event as follows:<p><blockquote><i>The final 12 women have been chosen and are to be taking to the catwalk at London premier burlesque club, <a href="http://www.cafedeparis.com/" target="_blank">Café de Paris</a>. It is going to be a glitzy, glamorous and celebratory show for women with a fuller figure and I really hope that you will come along to support the event. The event will be filmed as the finale of a Channel 4 documentary and <strong>will be followed by an after-show party to which all ticket holders are invited</strong>.</i></blockquote><p>Did we mention that this is all <i>really happening</I>?

Charlotte goes on to say that <i>"for the last two months the cameras have followed me every day, putting together this final event,</i>" and promises that <i>"you're going to die when you see it. I have met so many fab people. This will change the world of plus size beauty for ever. I promise."</i>

"All very well and good," you say. "Can't wait to see it on TV," you say. "Too bad I can't attend in person," you say.

<strong><i>But you can!</i></strong>

Yes, unlike the Lane Bryant lingerie shows, which never allowed the public to attend, tickets for this once-in-a-lifetime event are going on sale on Wednesday.

In other words, if you happen to be in England at the time, <i><strong>you can be part of the audience!</strong></i>

And not only will audience members be treated to the sight of gorgeous plus-size models (along with Charlotte Coyle herself) in ultra-feminine attire, right before their eyes, in this unbelievably exciting event, but the promise of being able to attend an <i>after-show party</i> with the program's contests, including Miss Coyle, is simply mind-boggling.

Tickets go on sale this Wednesday, February 8 at 9:00 AM GMT, from the following link:

It all sounds too good to be true, but pinch yourself, because it's <i>really happening.</i> This is nothing less than the most revolutionary event that the television world has ever known, and the fact that the public will be able to attend, and watch history unfold before their eyes, is too exciting for words.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/cc/discovered06.jpg"></center><p>But be sure to get your tickets early on Wednesday morning, because they will undoubtedly sell out in a matter of minutes, and if you miss this event, you'll be regretting it for the rest of your life. And those of you who always dreamed of attending a Lane Bryant lingerie show, but never had this chance--this is your opportunity, at last.

We offer our most enthusiastic congratulations to Charlotte Coyle for making this dream (the dream of every Classical goddess, and every aficionado of timeless beauty) a reality. No one could possibly be a better embodiment of true femininity than Charlotte, and with this thrilling program, she is sure to do more to change the world's view of beauty than anyone has ever done before.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/cc/discovered04.jpg"></center><p>- <a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/charlotte.htm" target="_blank">Charlotte Coyle: A Panegyric</a>

I had to read this three times before I could actually believe it. So in other words, there's going to be a prime time TV series about Charlotte's career as a plus-size model, and this amazing runway show & plus-size-model contest will be the capper? My god! It's like everything we've been talking about on this forum for months and months is actually coming true.

Lane Bryant's Moulin-Rouge-themed show was their best lingerie even by far. It's just too perfect that this event will be evoking that, AND bringing it to a prime-time audience on the top British network. WOW. Why isn't this happening in North America????

This is going to cause a sensation. I bet no one in England has any idea that a size-18 model can look as gorgeous as Charlotte. They've never seen anyone like her (except maybe Sophie Dahl, during the brief period when she was actually plus). Beauty will never be the same. I wish I could be there! If I lived in England, I'd buy a ticket the minute they became available.

As a big fan of the Lane Bryant runway shows, I would fall into that category for sure. I could never understand why LB didn't allow the public to attend these famous publicity events, nor why they never broadcast them on TV. The idea of finally being able to attend something like this is a dream come true - but aaargh, why did it have to be in England, and not in the U.S.??? At least it will be on TV, but it won't be the same as being there in person.

Just out of curiosity, I looked up airplane fare to England. Nothing below $600, which is just a little too high for me to write the flight off as a business expense (!). By contrast, the price of tickets for the show is a steal - 10 pounds sterling. Those lucky Brits!!

Charlotte Coyle (the sexiest of all full-figured models) in a racy runway show with other plus-size goddesses, and a party for everyone afterwards. I still can't get my mind around it. "Once-in-a-lifetime," no kidding.

Whoever created the idea for this show, and made it a reality on prime-time TV, is a genius. It's going to change the world, if anything can........

I was wondering is Lane Bryant hinting of having another lingerie fashion show. If they do they should use more fuller figured models than those skinny ones they have use in the past.

<br>We have seen no indications that Lane Bryant will be staging another Cacique event in the near future. In the early shows, the models were regrettably faux-plus, but in the last and best production (which yielded the lovely Kate Dillon image, above), the models' sizes were generally more curvaceous.

But no Lane Bryant show ever featured a model as exciting as Charlotte, let alone was filmed as part of a prime-time television series, as <i>Beauty Reborn</i> will be.

Tickets for this incredible event just went on sale a few minutes ago, and can now be purchased from the link posted above.

Incidentally, we just received a vote for Charlotte on our survey page, along with the following truly unique comment:<p><blockquote><i>"Can't thank you enough for spreading the great news about Charlotte!!! <strong>She is hotter than the earth's molten core.</strong> If there's any timeless beauty who can change the media's way of viewing women, then she is it. GO CHARLOTTE!!!!"</i></blockquote><p>In the seven years that we have been running this site, we have read every imaginable compliment about the beauty of plus-size models, but never, ever, has any goddess been called <i>"hotter than the Earth's molten core."</i> That takes the prize as the most vivid expression of praise that any model has ever inspired--and who can be surprised that it was Charlotte who evoked such a high-temperature reaction?

<i>Beauty Reborn</i> may well become the greatest moment in plus-size beauty since the debut of <i>Mode</i> magazine. If there was ever an event not to be missed, this is it.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/cc/charlotte24.jpg"></center><p>- <a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/charlotte2.htm">The temperature readings are off the charts . . .</a>

Is there any chance that any network here in the States might pick this up for broadcast? It seems the U.S. is far behind when it comes to size acceptance, and it would be nice if there were images on TV that taught young women to love their bodies, and aspire to a more healthy ideal of beauty.

What a wonderful development that would be! One can only hope that this will happen. As Xin Yi indicates, there has never been a program of this nature in North America--certainly not for nationwide, prime-time broadcast--so a U.S.-network screening of this unprecedented show would be an absolute sensation. To have Charlotte Coyle's face (and figure) displayed on television screens across the country would cause an instant and irrevocable change in public perceptions of feminine beauty.

Incidentally, some readers may be interested in <a href="http://www.soesteem.co.uk/features.htm" target="_blank">this</a> article, written by one woman who tried out for the "Beauty Reborn" contest that will have its grand finale at the Café de Paris in London. Although she didn't make the cut, the writer shares some interesting observations about the selection process, and features a reference to Charlotte (along with a picture) in the body of her article.

Amen!! In case this program doesnt get broadcast in the U.S. or Canada, I hope it comes out on DVD. I also hope the show will create an official website, once the broadcast date gets closer. It would be exciting to see more images of Charlotte done in that highly polished, sexy, Elle-magazine style of photography. I cant wait to see what kinds of exciting modelling moments the show might capture.

But I agree that nothing will take the place of actually being there for this thrilling event. I always thought how lucky the people who got to attend the Lane Bryant shows were. But to get to meet the models after the show, too...I just wish I lived in England!

You know, I just posted about Eating Disorders Awareness Week, and it occurs to me that if anyone wanted to seriously combat these ailments, then a program like this -- a glossy, exciting, fashionable, glamourous idealization of the fuller female figure, with someone like Charlotte as the poster girl and star -- would be infinitely more effective than all of the dour, dry, and sometimes dull events that are organized about body awareness.

After all, the skeletal standard wasn't instituted by educational committees or public lectures, but by glamourous fashion imagery. It only stands to reason that the best way to fight it is with even-more-glamourous fashion imagery, championing the curvaceous figure.

I'm thrilled that this program is being made, and if I lived in Britain, I'd be the first in line to get a ticket.

In another post, the topic came up about how many men secretly admire volutpuous vixens, but are uncomfortable about saying so. I think a program like this will be SO important, because it will finally give those men an image that they can cite to their peers, as an example of their ideal.

I'm certain that the lack of gorgeous plus-size women in the media makes it almost impossible for men to explain their preference to their peers. If they tell their friends, "I like full-figured women," they are probably met by puzzled responses such as, "So.......you're into Camryn Manheim??" And no wonder- they have no other frame of reference.

But now, these men will be able to answer their peers by saying, "No, my ideal is Charlotte Coyle- and the models of 'Beauty Reborn.'"

So far, plus-size beauty has been exclusively confined to the plus-size fashion world (apart from Christina Schmidt on Degrassi). Charlotte's program will finally bring it into the mainstream. I can't wait for this show to debut, and I earnestly hope that it comes to North America, in some form or another.

I wish I could attend the London event, though. I'm sure that anyone who does will remember the experience forever.
