View Full Version : Yanderis: Goodys cover girl

Its nice to see another retailer following the lead of Reitmans, and putting a plussize model on its main cover. Yanderis now appears on the home page of the Goodys website, and its a really beautiful photo too. It reminds me of those great Fashion Bug covers that Yanderis did a few seasons ago. The hairstyle is kind of romantic, and I really like the expression:

Whats really good about this cover is that Yanderis does not have a narrow/oval face at all, but one that is much softer and more round-looking, so all Goodys customer will now be seeing timeless beauty before their eyes.

I hope this means that retailers are finally realizing that plussize models are better representatives than straight size models for ALL purposes, and have much better odds of catching anyones attention (no matter what their size), because plussize beauty is so much more inviting and naturally beautiful.

<br>It certainly is a pleasure to see a plus-size model on any cover, but to see a company that is not plus-specific feature one on their main page is particularly encouraging. It indicates a growing realization on the part of retailers that a size-14 model such as Yanderis presents a healthier and more natural ideal of beauty for <i>all</i> women--even those who fall into the straight-size category--than does an underweight waif.

Yanderis's images at Goody's have been quite attractive, as customary commercial promotions go. This image presents her beauty in a more refined way,<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/yanderis/goodys02.jpg"></center><p>while this current promotion has more of a <i>joie de vivre</i> tone:<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/yanderis/goodys03.jpg"></center><p>But Yanderis's most notable current campaign remains her work for Aurora Formals (where she is joined by Lindsey Garbelman). The hairstyles are quite romantic, the poses and photography are pro-curvy, and the nature of the clothing in question (promwear) makes the campaign especially notable. Since plus-size goddess are the most distinctly feminine of models, they are particularly in their element when they are seen showcasing dresses, gowns, and other examples of ultra-feminine attire.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/yanderis/aurora06.jpg"></center><p>- <a href="http://www.plussizebridal.com/SearchResults.asp?category=PR" target="_blank">More Lindsey & Yanderis images at Plussizebridal.com</a>
