It's just a single picture in the current circular, but any company that uses genuinely full-figured models deserves a plug for doing so, in my opinion, and Kohl's has been quite consistent in this- more so than many plus-specialty retailers.

And I think the colour of the top is very nice.

<br>Kohl's generally makes exceptional casting choices with its full-figured models, and it employs Barbara not infrequently. One only wishes that the company would create plus-size-specific flyers, to take full advantage of the lovely girls who appear in its promotions. Barbara looks heavenly in that very soft colour.

Barbara also appears in rotation on the current Reitmans cover. The majority of the stunning images from her winter campaign for this admirably size-positive retailer have appeared on the site's cover pages. No other company in the world that sells both minus and plus-size fashions has so consistently allowed a genuinely full-figured model to represent its image to the world. But when one's curvy representative is one of the most gorgeous women who has ever been photographed, who can be surprised?

Even when the attire is simple and basic, Barbara manages to create surpassingly gorgeous images.<p><center><a href="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/bb/br38.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/bb/br38a.jpg" border="0" alt="Click to enlarge"></a></center><p>- <a href="http://www.reitmans.com" target="_blank">Reitmans.com</a>

Just to let fans know, the current flyer features another curvy image of Barbara:

It made me think of something. Just the other day, it was announced (http://www.allheadlinenews.com/articles/7006330894) that British skeletal celebrity Victoria Beckham would be launching a line of denim wear, and ironically (but commendably) would be banning models as underweight as she is, from promoting them:

Victoria Beckham has also banned size zero models from promoting her trendy denim fashion label...

According to source, Victoria's decision to hire [Daniella] Sarahyba to represent her brand will waive off her fears of "giving young girls a complex about their image and putting pressure on them to be as skinny as her."

Daniella's Website describes her as a "voluptuous goddess... with the curves and meat in all the right places."Nice sentiments - but wrong model! It turns out that the girl in question, Daniella Sarahyba, only has measurements 35-26-36. Tiny

By contrast, Barbara always looks luscious in denim, as seen above, and in many other pictures.

If Beckham had truly wanted a "voluptuous goddess... with the curves and meat in all the right places," she should certainly have selected a plus-size model like Barbara.

Barbara appears in the new Kohls flyer, and while shes modelling a vertically-striped shirt (Ive never been fond of vertical stripes), she looks so pretty here that I simply have to post the image.

Barbara is perfection in everything she does. Its a great pose, and with it, she somehow manages to suggest curves even in an outfit that tries to take them away. Her hair is a little shorter, but I love how the ends curl in close to her face. Gorgeous.
