View Full Version : Valerie Lefkowitz: A New Dawn?

25th April 2006, 17:14
<br>If there is any blessed miracle for which fans of plus-size beauty have yearned, it is for the return of Valerie Lefkowitz. Valerie began her career as a faux-plus model, but then, a few years ago, blossomed into a true goddess, and became the darling of size celebration. Many saw her as the natural inheritor of Shannon Marie's legacy as the most gorgeous fair-haired model in the industry, and her sheer virtuostic modelling talent dazzled every aficionado of timeless beauty.

Then, for whatever reason, the thinner look returned--to the detriment not just to any individual career, but to the industry as a whole. However, we all held out hope that perhaps someday, the goddess would return.

Admittedly, we aren't quite there yet, but in her latest campaigns (Dress Barn, Boscovs), Ms. Lefkowitz has exhibited traces of her once-curvaceous glory. And this new image is her loveliest test in many a season. It is both alluring and graceful, and reminds us all why Valerie became, for several seasons, the brightest star in the heavens.

True to the natural cycle of life, the sun rises and then sets, but the darkness is always followed by a new dawn. Let us hope that this portends the return of a fuller-figured Valerie, and thereafter, a series of blazing new triumphs for the model.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/vl/newdawn.jpg"></center><p>- <a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/valerie.htm" target="_blank">Valerie Lefkowitz: An Homage</a>
