I have one more image to add to this thread. Lane Bryants ads dont always work for me, but I do like it when they venture into this regal/opulent style, a bit like the aesthetic of bridal ads. A recent e-mail promo had a similarly elegant feel to it:
I love the setting, with the wrought-iron gate and those classical doors, and even the lettering is like Old World "script", especially with the trim around the inset tab. And Crystals pose at least has some suggestion of her figure.
The caption is very appropriate: "hug-me-now
boucle" (and it is, of course, the curvaceous figure in
the sweater, and not just the material of the sweater, that makes it so huggable).
