<br>Fans of Melissa Masi will be thrilled to see several new images of this popular model online at various Web sites. And if her current <a href="http://www.torrid.com" target="_blank">Torrid</a> cover, which is posted here, looks attractive, but not exactly "daring" (as advertised in the title of this thread), be patient--there is more to come.<p><center><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/mm/torrid09.jpg"></center><p>Several fans have asked to see this image in a steady version, rather than the "blinking" .gif that appears at the Torrid site, so it is for them that we have posted it.

At <a href="http://www.kiyonna.com" target="_blank">kiyonna.com</a>, Melissa is headlining what is, to the best of our knowledge, her first-ever swimwear campaign. She looks wonderful, of course (although perhaps thinner than some of her fans might have expected), but how surprising to see swimwear modelled in the studio rather than at the beach--and in California, yet!

And for the piece de resistance, Erika kindly informs us that Melissa currently appears in an extremely daring lingerie image at beautypluspower.com, which is viewable <a href="http://www.beautypluspower.com/editorial/style_all.asp?order=5&id=11" target="_blank">here</a>. But readers are cautioned: although this image is quite classy, it is also somewhat risque. Anyone who does not care for lingerie images in general is asked to please give the link a pass.

But for those of you who do elect to view it, you will see an extraordinarily sensual image, and one which reveals the very natural curves for which this model is revered. Note the smouldering look in her eyes--piercing, but not exaggerated--and how that look is what makes this image particularly effective. Note also the clever touches on the part of photographer Leslie Delano, such as the antique furniture, and the night light. (We have never seen the latter detail in an image such as this before. It genuinely adds something.)

The result is one of the more successful lingerie images we have yet seen. Melissa certainly demonstrates her adroitness at this, the most challenging of all modelling categories.

Don't say we didn't warn you . . .

What a beautiful, sensual picture! This is the type of image that truly is sexy, not the ubiquitous skeletal models that the media tries to pass off as having "perfect" bodies.
