Once again, Justine's lovely photo prompts a strong visual association with another famous image of curvaceous beauty, just as her Coup de Pouce swimwear spread recalled Barbara Brickner's legendary Mode layout.

This time, the above image recalls the most famous scene in the film that launched Jennifer Connelly's career, the John Hughes movie Career Opportunities (1991) -- the scene in which Jennifer rides the toy horse in the Target supermarket, wearing a similar top to the one that Justine wears in her polaroids. This image was surely the greatest vision of beauty ever seen in a Target store until Kelsey Olson's Target campaign from earlier this year.

Here's a second screencap. Jennifer starved herself after this movie, and was never again this attractive. Although she wasn't plus-size in Career Opportunities, she was much softer and fuller than today's actresses, and she even have beautiful curves along her back. Pretty as she was, though, Justine still outshines her both in face and figure.

Here's the full-size version of the second screencap:
