Fans of lovely plus-size model Valerie Lefkowitz will wish to know that for a whole season now, she has been the face of Catherine's. This is a surprising development, as Catherine's has long been considered the "mature" line in the Charming Shoppes chain, while Valerie has a perpetually youthful look.
Her newest Catherine's cover is very pretty.
The real must-see images of Valerie at Catherine's are her new intimate-apparel promotions. The model looks attractively full-figured in these photos, reminding everyone yet again that if she were ever to blossom into a fuller size, she would become one of the industry's most subversively stunning plus-size models.
The most gorgeous image, by far, is this following picture, which shows Valerie exhibiting attractively soft, full arms, a fair complexion, and looking very buxom. This is an exceptionally beautiful photograph of Valerie, one of her most pro-curvy images in a long while.
Valerie also appears in a pair of new images on a Western theme.
The skirt is actually a very attractive item.
For fall, Valerie appeared in a Catherine's catalogue, which I kept meaning to post here but never got around to it till now.
She would look gorgeous with a fuller waist, but this image shows the womanliness of her hips.
The red hat in this photograph is very striking. Valerie wore a similarly eye-catching red chapeau in her most recent Zizzi campaign. I wonder if that's where she, or the Catherine's stylist, got the idea.
Her long, golden tresses have always been one of her loveliest features.
Another image showing her with feathered, voluminous hair. It's such a lovely style, and greatly enriches her look.
It will be interesting to see what manner of images Valerie might yet create for Catherine's. The newest intimate-apparel images are truly gorgeous; I hope there will be more of them. They suggest fuller curves for Valerie, and if she were ever to become more generously plus-size, her fans would be ecstatic.
