View Full Version : Heather Shantora & Cotton Ginny

<br>Heater Shantora is a size-14 goddess with Ford Toronto/Miami who well deserves greater industry recognition. Last summer, she attracted considerable attention with an absolutely stunning Jai Bridals ad, which accompanied an important <a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/board/showthread.php?t=82" target="_blank">thread</a> on this forum. Many consider that particular ad to be one of the most enchanting plus-size bridal images ever created.

The aforementioned thread also included a link to Heather's lovely <a href="http://www.fordmodels.com/fmvideo/video2.cfm?video_url=hs3_32_1_1.flv" target="_blank">Ford video</a>, which, although it suffers from unremarkable styling, does show off the model's gorgeously round facial features, and captivating expressions.<p><center><a href="http://www.fordmodels.com/fmvideo/video2.cfm?video_url=hs3_32_1_1.flv" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/heathers03.jpg" border="0" alt="Click image to view Flash video"></a></center></p>And now, we are pleased to note Ms. Shantora's appearance in a brand-new promotion for Cotton Ginny Plus (www.cottonginny.ca). The ad celebrates Heather's curvaceous figure, shapely arms, and charismatic demeanour.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/heathers02a.jpg"></center><p>This image is a particular triumph for Cotton Ginny, a company that once featured some of the most attractive plus-size advertising in Canada. Its campaigns in the mid-1990s starred goddesses such as Emme and Amy Poland--the model whose work directly inspired the creation of this Web project. In subsequent years, however, Cotton Ginny Plus resorted to highly unpopular campaigns featuring faux-plus models, which in turn led to a sales slump, and eventually forced the company into bankruptcy.

However, unlike the August Max Woman chain--which also went under due to unpopular faux-plus advertising--a few Cotton Ginny stores survived the company's implosion. This ad marks the first time in years that Cotton Ginny has featured a professional plus-size model in its promotions, and frankly, they couldn't have selected a better representative.

We hope to see more of Ms. Shantora in the near future.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/heathers05.jpg"></center><p>And we also hope to see Cotton Ginny regain its former status as one of the most size-celebratory retailers in Canadian fashion.

I found another pretty image of Heather on the Cotton Ginny site. The clothing is quite basic (it is called Cotton Ginny, after all), but I like the movement in the picture. And Heather's facial features look very soft - and beautiful.
