Now that the autumn chill has most of North America in its grip, it is well worth taking a fond look back at the summer video that SWAK produced featuring gorgeous Jenn Purviance, so that one may dream of the days of warmer weather, which now seem so far away.
The video opens with a shot of lovely white blossoms set against a vibrant backdrop of greenery, immediately establishing the lush mood that pervades the entire film.
The full-blooming splendour of the flowers matches the bountiful, fleshy beauty of the model herself, viewed here in preparation for the photo series to come.
The next shot presents Jenn in all her radiant glory, the lilac blossom in her raven tresses associating her fresh, blossoming loveliness with the fecundity of the natural world around her.
Observe how every image showcases the luscious curve under the model's chin, that most alluring of all facial features. Not only is her lovely physique full and replete, but soft and untoned, creating an ideally feminine look.
This moment in the video replicates the still image from the campaign which caused such a sensation. Has there even been a visual as beautiful as the sight of Jenn's opulent arms, with their sumptuous fullness? The sheer pleasure that she takes in her own attractiveness radiates off the screen. The background, even in the midst of suburbia, recalls the halcyon enchantment of Classical Arcadia.
Plus-size goddesses are never so pretty as when they are seen relaxing in indolent repose, as Jenn does in the following still. Observe the womanly breadth of her 53" hips, the fullness of the arm which she tosses over her hair, and the dark lustre of her tresses.
Such sensual lassitude is intoxicating. The model now adopts a steamier, more openly seductive gaze, her cheeks flushed, her eyes bewitching, the curve under her chin alluringly visible.
As if glimpsed through the flora by a secret admirer, the next shot discreetly focuses in on the model's delicious arms. Observe the attractively dimpled flesh, such a pretty, natural trait, thankfully not airbrushed away. Note too the prevalence of the purple/green colour scheme in this video, the royal palette which is favoured by the Judgment of Paris.
One further dazzling close-up of the model lingers on her soft fingers, so plump and pretty, with dimples at the knuckles. Plus-size goddesses are attractive in every detail of their appearance.
Another floral interlude precedes the final, more playful scenes in the video. These intercut shots of ravishing blossoms help create the impression that this video captures footage from an idyllic dream-world inhabited by the purest expressions of ideal beauty.
In several more playful shots, Jenn is first seen whispering a secret into her acolyte's ear, in much the manner that a princess might communicate the details of her latest romantic conquest to a handmaiden.
And in this still, Jenn dances under a rainbow of water, frolicking in her terrestrial paradise.
The video ends, appropriately enough, on a final shot of an exquisite flower.
Bravo, as always, to Sealed with a Kiss and photographer Michael Anthony Hermogeno for exhibiting true plus-size beauty in such an irresistible manner. The choice to shoot in such a gorgeous location doubles the appeal of the entire presentation.
And kudos to Jenn for remaining one of the industry's all-too-rare, true plus-size models (43-34-53). The splendour of her well-fed features and figure establishes her as one of the most popular talents the fashion world has ever known.
