<br>Photographer Michael Hermogeno (<a href="http://www.8x10proofs.com" target="_blank">8x10proofs.com</a>), "the eyes of Torrid," has kindly shared with us a few photographs that he took of Christina Schmidt, just this weekend. These images are very different from her recent Toronto shoot, and capture more of Christina's casual side.

Here she is in a classic career-wear pose: the cell-phone call (perhaps in dialogue with an acting agent?). Christina is best known for her sizzling, dramatic looks, but she also has one of the warmest, most natural smiles in the industry--as this image so effectively shows.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/cs/ma01.jpg"></center><p>And here, for the countless fans who adore Christina's "wilder" side, is a photograph showing a deliciously pouty expression. Christina injects excitement into even the most casual images.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/cs/ma02.jpg"></center><p>As in her previous photo shoots, Christina displays a remarkable range in her posing abilities, from commercial comfort to editorial pizzaz. We eagerly hope to see more results from the collaborative team of Christina and Mr. Hermogeno, which has produced some of the most eye-catching work in recent seasons . . .

That smile that can cure a rainy day. She is SO beautiful! And I like how sophisticated and mature she looks in these pictures. It shows that not only can she model the trendy styles, but career wear as well - and make it all look great!

And her age is really flexible. While in her Torrid shoot she had a teen princess look, here she could be in her twenties, a career professional - but one who is full of life, not a harried businesswoman.

Speaking of Torrid, I hope Torrid manages to get Christina to work for them again, if thats possible. I thought her last shoot for them turned out the all-time best Torrid images ever. Id love to see that magic happen again.........

That smile reminds me so much of Barbara Brickner. I like this look for Christina, as a change, and I agree that she looks so refined in that top image. Although the high-glamour style she usually chooses is my favorite. It would be wonderful to see her shoot for Torrid again.

<br>Here is one more image from Mr. Hermogeno's weekend shoot with Miss Schmidt. Again, the tone is comfortably casual, but Christina still manages to endow the image with her unique glamour and radiance.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/cs/ma03.jpg"></center><p>Had she lived in the times of Mycenean Greece, Christina's face could well have launched a thousand ships. In the present day-and-age, however, it prompts the click of a thousand camera shutters, as photographers eagerly immortalize her beauty in images as surely as ancient bards preserved Helen of Troy's splendour in poem and song.
