A number of readers have asked where Valerie might currently be seen, and we note that she continues to model for Dress Barn, which unfailingly shoots its campaigns in attractive locations.
In the image from Dress Barn, below, we see Valerie exhibiting one of the most gorgeous hairstyles that we have ever seen on any model. It brings to life, even more vividly than the image with which we matched it in our recent ''Voluptuous Volume''
thread, Charlotte Bronte's sensual description of her seductively vain coquette, Ginevra Fanshawe:
"Yes: in she came, dressed in bright silk, with her shawl falling from her shoulders, and her curls, half-uncurled in the damp of night, drooping careless and heavy upon her neck."
Valerie's tresses look thick and luxuriant, "half-uncurled" and breathtakingly weighty. But seeing Valerie modelling today is always a tad bittersweet, because the viewer cannot help but compare her current look with her past masterpieces, when she was irresistibly fuller figured, and the most gorgeous model in the industry. Many fans will never give up hope that someday, Valerie may regain her goddesslike beauty of yore.
