View Full Version : Kailee for Christmas (at MXM)

1st November 2006, 19:19
<br>MXM has just released its Winter 2006 promotion, and the results constitute a priceless, early Christmas gift for every aficionado of timeless beauty.

Kailee O'Sullivan returns for this campaign, looking wonderful with her darker hair colour. The photography is rather improved over last season, benefitting from more natural white lighting, which shows off the immaculate beauty of Kailee's exquisitely fair complexion.

The clothing is also considerably superior to the company's fall offerings. With the holiday season right around the corner, MXM is offering romantic, feminine styles, all tailor-made to adorn plus-size beauty.

The most stunning image of the campaign, and one of Miss O'Sullivan's best images to date, shows the model in a feminine top that seductively frames her voluptuous décolletage. The ethereal fairness of her skin creates an intoxicating contrast with the passionate red hue of her apparel. Her dazzling white arms look like polished marble. Her hair flows freely over her shoulders, and down her back. A banked-down fire smoulders in her ice-blue eyes . . .<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ko/mxm05.jpg"></center><p>Another image of the same item shows off the attractive detail in the top--a lacy design that gives it an Old World quality (very much in keeping with Kailee's romantic, unmodern beauty). The softness of the model's limbs compliments the opulence of her attire.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ko/mxm06.jpg"></center><p>The image is even more effective when more of it is seen; however, this version is reproduced at a regrettably small size on the MXM site:<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ko/mxm08.jpg"></center><p>Another diminutive yet eye-catching image shows Miss O’Sullivan in a black lingerie-inspired top. Although corsets are <i>not</i> advantageous to plus-size beauty--inasmuch as womanly curves should <i>never</i> be restricted or compressed--this item undeniably frames Kailee's shoulders and limbs in a gorgeous manner.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ko/mxm09.jpg"></center><p>And finally, in the following image, Kailee looks particularly alluring, reposing indolently on a plush, vintage sofa. The soft white-and-pink of the model's skin tone harmonizes enchantingly with the vintage rose colour of her top. The photographer might have chosen a different pose, however, the better to show off both the model, and her wardrobe.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/ko/mxm07.jpg"></center><p>In fact, this is the one criticism which may be levelled at MXM--that, the exception of the first image posted above, the photography in this campaign is not as size-positive as it could be. When shooting voluptuous vixens, photographers should always take advantage of the models' womanly beauty, and celebrate their luscious curves.

Fans also still hope to see a fuller-figured Kailee someday. Other Ford girls (Ashley Graham, Ivana) are carving out successful careers at a size 16. Due to her more natural heigth (5'7), Kailee at even a size 14 would become a goddess beyond compare. She is already one of the industry’s most promising talents, and one of the most gorgeous models in the world.

Kudos to Miss O'Sullvian, and to MXM, for a remarkable winter campaign. Hopefully, more images will yet appear on the MXM site, (perhaps even a video, of the kind that MXM produced in seasons past,) which would make this the gift that keeps on giving . . .<p>- <a href="http://www.mxm.ca" target="_blank">MXM, Holiday 2006</a>

The MXM site has a page of downloadable wallpapers with some of Kailee's images, which is a marvellous idea (although the frame graphics overpower the photos a little, and I wish MXM offered a larger selection of Kailee's images).

I really like this promotion. It's more elegant and romantic than the fall campaign, and as such, it suits Kailee better. I especially adore the first image in this thread. Kailee looks especially beautiful in it, and her expression is passionate and intense. It amazes me just how much emotion she can put into her pictures, especially since she's soooo young. Her light complexion is luminous, while her figure is womanly, which makes a wonderful contrast.

I see that Kailee has accessorized with a different GQ this season. I bet the male models are falling over themselves, begging their bookers for the opportunity to shoot an MXM campaign with Kailee. With her soft beauty, she could have the pick of any of them...
