View Full Version : Torrid: The return of Jamie and Alicia

10th November 2006, 13:30
<br>Torrid is firing on all cylinders this season. Not only has it brought back Christina Schmidt--the most gorgeous of all Torrid girls on this side of the Atlantic--but the company has just shot with two of its most popular models of recent seasons.

First, the company recently called in all of its various "contest winners" to do an in-house fashion show, and one of these was the seductive <a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/board/showthread.php?t=462" target="_blank">Jamie M.</a> Alas, the pictures are small, but Jamie is clearly visible in the following photograph, second from the right. (She's the girl with the gorgeously curvy arms.)<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/jamie02.jpg"></center><p>And here are two (tiny!) pictures from the actual runway show,<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/jamie03.jpg"></center><p>presenting Jamie in a very comfortable-looking gold camisole top:<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/jamie04.jpg"></center><p>As the prettiest and curviest of the model-search winners, we hope to see more of Jamie at Torrid in the future.

Torrid has also brought in Alicia, a popular size 18/20 model from past seasons, whose work often appeared on this forum. Here she is showing off the angora sweater that Christina Schmidt modelled so effectively in her duet picture with Kelsey:<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/torrid15a.jpg"></center><p>This is all very good news, because it means that Torrid is making a point to enlist the services of <i>truly</i> full-figured models--a casting policy that has made it the most popular plus-size retailer in the world. All of Torrid's fashions look irresistible on girls with visibly curvaceous figures, and with Christina Schmidt leading the way, the company's future looks very bright indeed.

I'm VERY happy to see Jamie back at Torrid. She's definitely my favorite of all of their model search winners, and my third-favorite Torrid model, along with Christina and Kelsey. I want that gold top she's wearing! It looks so good on her figure, which is similar to mine. The idea of a Torrid fashion show is terrific - they should do these more often.

In her Torrid interview, Jamie said, "You don't have to feel bad about being what you are. You can still look cute and be happy with yourself. You don't have to try and hide under a tarp." Words to live by! I hope Jamie does more modeling in the future. She's amazing.

<br>Jamie fans will be delighted to see this image, provided by Michael Anthony, of Jamie being interviewed for <i>Inside Edition.</i> The TV show sent a crew to Torrid to interview the company’s model-search winners (Jamie included), prior to the runway show mentioned above.

Alas, we are told that this episode of <i>Inside Edition</i> already aired, but at least we have this image, showing Jamie looking utterly ravishing before the camera.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/jamie05.jpg"></center><p>

Torrid has also brought in Alicia, a popular size 18/20 model from past seasons, whose work often appeared on this forum.
Alicia also appears on one of the new Torrid landing pages:


I like the catalogue picture posted earlier a little more, as she looks fuller-figured in it. But both shots are terrific. I'm happy to see her modelling again, as she represents the curvier side of Torrid! She has a great figure, and I hope Torrid gets her to model for them more often.

<br>Fans will be delighted to see a brief video of <i>Inside Edition</i>'s story about the Torrid fashion show in which Jamie participated. Unfortunately, the video is small, low-res, and rather grainy, but it does yield this gorgeous view of Jamie in the makeup chair. Her hairstyle looks enchanting, and the image celebrates the soft fullness of her figure--and particularly, her shapely arms:<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/jamie06.jpg"></center><p>The video also offers another glimpse of the model on the runway.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/forum/jamie07.jpg"></center><p>Not bad at all, for a half-minute clip . . .<p>- <a href="http://www.torrid.com/community/torrid_inside_edition.asp" target="_blank">Click here to watch the Torrid video</a>
