Miss Legault (Scoop Montreal, Ford Toronto) is one of those select few models who are surpassingly gorgeous and curvy (she is a size 14), yet whose work does not appear nearly as often as fans would wish. Her celebrated test with Yanick Dery, and her images for BBCurves lingerie, won great acclaim, and we do know that she models regularly in Montreal. But alas, little of this local work is ever seen outside la belle province.
Here, however, are a few more images of this stunning girl. First, a tear sheet that appeared in a French-language fashion magazine:
Unless we are much mistaken, the title reads "With great sizes come great expectations"
(or more literally, "plus sizes" and "high expectations," but the other rendering gives a better sense of the French play on words). Justine's limbs are not as full as one might like, but this attractive profile image shows off both her fore- and reverse-view curves.
An even better image exhibiting Justine's womanly proportions is this one. The glory of the model's figure is her 46" hip measurement, and the pose suggests those luscious curves. Miss Legault always presents herself in a very chic and classy manner, exuding a degree of sophisticated vanity that is well warranted by her extraordinary beauty.
Perhaps to underscore this exciting touch of conceit on the model's part, the following test photo shows Justine with one of the most creative applications of makeup that we have ever seen. Such elaborate designs often fail, since they tend to be long on extravagance but short on true beauty, but Justine's cosmetics ornamentation is fascinating and lovely. Notice the peacock feathers in her hair--the peacock being a symbol of vanity from time immemorial. Justine's creamy, porcelain-perfect complexion offers the ideal canvas for this colour scheme, with the shimmering turquoise and yellow playing off her azure eyes and flawless pink lips.
Even in the most casual of outfits, Miss Legault still exhibits extraordinary poise and grace. The dramatic lighting in the following photo highlights the smooth, soft curve of her babylike cheeks, and catches a touch of her bubblegum-pink lips. Her tresses are as light as flax. But despite these adorable, childlike features, she also exhibits sensual touches, like her deep decolletage--coyly turned away from the light, so the low-cut camisole underneath her denim jacket is half-hidden in shadow. Her expression is almost too knowing for one with such an innocent look. She seems a young girl whose precocious beauty has made her worldly beyond her years, a princess in mall clothing, whose nobility remains unmistakable.
And finally, this simple black-and-white headshot effectively showcases her immaculate features. This could be a bust in marble, except for the model's big, child-like eyes, which impart an adorable touch of youth to what is otherwise a cool, Classical demeanour.
Justine's beauty is truly astounding--exceptional even among the top plus-size models--and fans eagerly hope to see more of this goddess nonpareil.
