If there is anything more beautiful than Kelsey Olson in a white wedding gown, it is Kelsey in a gown . . . in a picturesque natural location.
The centrepiece of Torrid's new bridal collection is this stunning new photograph of Miss Olson. The curve of Kelsey's hip gives the gown shape, while her fair, fresh skin is set off beautifully by the crisp whiteness of the dress--and both are vividly framed by the emerald green colours behind her.
Of course, Kelsey's pictures are always most exciting when viewed in close-up. As we draw near, we see many alluring details, like the crease of fullness around her neck, the gentle half-uncurled curl of her golden hair, her luscious red lips, and her cute, dimpled expression.
The reverse view exhibits her lovely profile, and the adorable "slight rise" of a "slope toward the throat."
Another thing that makes Torrid's new bridal campaign so delightful is that the company has included numerous images of each item. Besides the location shots, above, the gowns are also presented in traditional studio settings. In this picture, we see an especially enchanting smile from Kelsey.
And this studio reverse view shows us the seductive fullness of Kelsey's neck. Observe the soft swell of flesh by her chandelier earring.
Also new in the bridal collection is this example of vintage headwear. In the following close-up, notice once again the creased softness by the model's neck and shoulder area. That luscious detail is almost overwhelmingly alluring.
Perhaps the prettiest Torrid image of all is this recent photograph, showing her with a flower in her hair--the most feminine of all accessories. Note the robust fullness of her facial features, which bespeak uninhibited self-indulgence, playing off the tender, girlish quality of the image. In her photos, Kelsey frequently conveys the impression of a pampered princess who denies herself nothing, knowing that her natural beauty entitles her to universal admiration, and to a life of ease and pleasure.
Another captivating new headshot with a hibiscus floral accessory highlights the model's peaches-and-cream complexion--the prettiest complexion of any model since Shannon Marie. Her baby blue eyes, and the gentle pastel yellow of the flower, compliment the dazzling fairness of her skin. Note that for this headshot, the photographer framed the image lower than usual, allowing a glimpse of plump decolletage, delicately framed by the barely-there camisole. It is this mixture of innocence and sensuality that makes Kelsey's images so wondrous.
And finally, we turn from Kelsey in white to Kelsey in black, but her skin tone is so fair here, that the impression is still one of babylike innocence. Notice the very natural makeup--almost imperceptible--in contrast to the passionate red lipstick of the bridal images. (Kelsey is the ideal canvas, of which Torrid's cosmetics artists take full advantage.) The sheer ruffled top softly frames Kelsey's full facial features, while her golden hair, half-uncurled in big golden curls, tumbling every which way over her shoulders, augments the impression of opulence and luxuriance.
Kelsey's Torrid images are always fascinating, always enchanting--and never more so than in these remarkable new bridal images (hopefully the first of many).
