Default Katherine Roll at Coney Island


Last Friday, gorgeous plus-size model Katherine Roll shot a test at Coney Island with photographer Rebecca Schott, and the first teaser image has now been released.

Miss Roll consistently produces by far the most beautiful tests of any model in the industry. Not only is Katherine herself arguably the industry's most gorgeous model, but the wardrobe styling in her shoots (which she does herself) is second to none. In this photograph, the sheer pastel-blue sweater complements her creamy-white skin tone in the loveliest way imaginable. Furthermore, it modestly discloses the sight of Katherine's stunning size-18 physique--the finest figure of any working plus-size model--so seductively exhibited in black two-piece swim attire.

Katherine's fair tresses and pink lip colour harmonize with her peaches-and-cream complexion and the baby-blue hue of her sweater. Miss Roll's luscious, rounded arms are tantalizingly displayed. The photographer deserves great credit for the composition of the image, with the posts of the Coney Island pier providing a natural framing effect, drawing the eye from the outside of the image in, toward Katherine's angelic visage. The colour scheme of the setting echos the model's own attire, with the water finding a complement in the blue sweater and the sand balanced by the fair hue of the model's hair. The model's pose is natural and convincing, her expression gentle yet vibrant. Few models can merge softness with energy in this deft manner, and no one can do it better than Miss Roll.

If we come in closer still, we find even more captivating details in the image, such as the irresistibly sensual sight of the dimples at Katherine's knuckles. Furthermore, her clavicle is wholly submerged in soft fullness, with the seductive expanse of flesh by the model's neck appearing soft and smooth, exhibiting but the alluring natural trait of slight creasing, such as one might see in the skin of a newborn. All in all, Katherine's look exhibits qualities of babylike softness that endow her with an unparalleled feminine charm.

If this first image is any indication, Katherine's test with Ms. Schott will be one of her finest-ever accomplishments, and consequently one of the most gorgeous tests that any model has ever created, a worthy follow-up to her celebrated sessions with Stanley Debas and Patrick Brassard.

Fans eagerly look forward to further photographs from this remarkably shoot.

Absolutely breathtaking. Fresh, natural, wholesome, yet incredibly alluring -- this is one of the most beautiful pictures of Katherine I've ever seen.

How empowering that she dared to bare her soft midriff in two-piece swim apparel, so teasingly reveals by her see-through overlay. Her figure is gorgeous, and is far more attractive than the emaciated frames of the size-0 skeletons who usually parade around in skimpy swimwear.

I love the soft natural colours, and I can't wait to see more photos from this enchanting test.

Katherine has now released several more images from her extraordinary test with Rebecca Schott, the most gorgeous of which is another photograph of the model in her daring two-piece outfit.

Click to enlarge

This picture even more dramatically illustrates Miss Roll's voluptuousness and acknowledges the curve of her hips. The most sensual detail, however, is the sight of Katherine's full thighs, which appear fleshy and soft, thus epitomizing the appeal of natural beauty. Her long, fair tresses flow over her shoulders in a seductively loose, heavy manner. Her expression is gentle yet very present and invigorating. The fullness of her arms is visible beneath her fitted overlay. The moss-covered rocks behind her, the sand at her feet, and the sea stretching off into the distance give the photograph depth and drama, with the rocky coastline effectively playing off against the model's soft curves.

Click to enlarge

Back on the Coney Island boardwalk, this image epitomizes the appeal of wholesome, gentle sensuality. Katherine's expression is warm and light-hearted, utterly endearing. Her pose flirtatiously exhibits her generous reverse-view curves, but in such a way as to be playful, which creates a more genuinely irresistible effect than a carnal display might have done. Her long, fair hair flows open to reveal the model's neckline, as if inviting the viewer's gaze. The attractive peasant top accentuates her buxom curves and décolletage, as traditional folk attire was ever wont to do.

Click to enlarge

A larger version highlights the most sensual aspect of this photograph, the soft fullness at the model's neck. This soft fleshiness is utterly intoxicating to view, and constitutes the essence of what makes true plus-size goddesses so gorgeous. Katherine's fair, creamy skin tone dazzles the eye.

Click to enlarge

A second image of Katherine in this feminine peasant blouse is, if anything, even more seductive than the previous photograph. The camera gazes longingly at the heady expanse of bare flesh at the model's neck area. The drawstrings at the neckline offer the tantalizing suggestion that they might loosen at any moment. White, fitted pants are ever the finest of choices if a goddess opts for slacks rather than skirts, as they lovingly define the model's hips and legs. Katherine's hands appear soft and plump, and the way in which she rests her hand on her thigh is a subtly sensual touch.

Click to enlarge

Most alluring of all, however, is the swell of round fullness at Katherine's waist. Models all too often constrict their midriffs, creating an unattractively caved-in silhouette, whereas the sight of a model's generous middle is the most irresistible physical detail imaginable. Katherine's expression fascinates, giving the impression that she has caught sight of something in the distance and gazes upon it with considerable interest.

Click to enlarge

Miss Roll is at her flirtatious best in the following picture, in which she coquettishly glances off to her side while flashing a delighted grin, as if pleased to have ensnared an admirer's heart. The high-belted dress dramatically exhibits her generous voluptuousness and suggests the rich fullness of the model's waist and hips. Notice how, with one hand, she coyly opens the jacket a little further, as if to offer a better view of her buxom curves, while with the other hand she tugs at her dress. The overall effect is one of conscious, exciting display.

Click to enlarge

A larger scan provides a richly detailed view of the model's Cheshire-cat grin. She knows that is practising devilish arts of allurement, and is delighted to see their effect. The contrast between the model's innately angelic features and her minx-like attitude is thrilling. Observe that for this picture, unlike the soft pink that she wears in the previous photographs, Katherine has adopted a more carnal red lip colour, signalling her voluptuous interest, and that her red belt reinforces this undercurrent of passion.

Click to enlarge

We must offer the photographer kudos for the composition of this image. Observe how the bright yellow signs, with their attractive, vintage illustrations, enliven this environment and give it a retro appeal. The left-hand sign generates an almost forced-perspective effect, directing the viewer's eye towards Katherine herself, and the fact that it advertises delicious carnival treats is a marvellously liberating touch. The model's outfit, appropriately, has a '50s quality, and her coral pants introduce a fresh hue into the palette of the image. Katherine adopts a playful, easygoing demeanour that perfectly suits the setting. The entire shoot captures a quality that is too often missing in many models' tests: a sense of fun.

Click to enlarge

The final image finds Katherine back on the Coney Island boardwalk, looking out to sea, with a pretty gazebo behind her. The sunlight illuminates her golden hair. This image shows Katherine at her angelic best, her facial features appearing soft, full, and pretty, her complexion fair yet ruddy with well-fed health, with the reddish elements in her outfit giving her complexion a touch of fresh colour. The eye lingers over the ebb and flow of her cascading tresses.

Click to enlarge

As anticipated, this shoot has produced a extraordinary array of gorgeous images. It is one of Katherine's finest shoots to date, showing her figure to be as luscious and shapely as ever, while her skin tone has never before appeared so angelically fair. The wardrobe styling accentuates the model's curves in a size-positive yet tasteful manner. (Katherine's wardrobe styling is consistently the best in the industry.) The setting enriches the pictures with many narrative possibilities. The poses and expressions are completely believable and natural, without a trace of artifice, yet they attractively display both the model's attire and her own well-fed beauty.

Congratulations to Katherine and to Ms. Schott on an outstanding photo series.

I haven't the words to express how much I love this picture:

This may sound farfetched, but when I look at it, I derive a subconscious association of Katherine with a mermaid. Her sea-green overlay is the hue that mermaid's tails are often given, while its mesh construction reminds me of a fisherman's net. Plus, Katherine has the long, fair tresses with which mermaids are usually depicted. And of course, the coastal setting puts me in mind of all things related to the sea.

It's a beautiful picture, and one of my all-time favourites.

My favourite image from the shoot would be the same one that Renata selected, but I also absolutely adore this picture:

It's so liberating to see a model comfortably exhibiting a curvy waist. Many full-figured girls are very timid about showing their midriffs, and needlessly so. By teasingly hinting at her full waist in images of the two-piece and the see-through sweater, then acknowledging it in this extremely sensual photograph, Katherine shows that plus-size girls should be proud of their soft, natural physiques.

I love Katherine's outfits, I adore the setting, and I admire her body confidence. These images represent everything that plus-size modelling should be, at its very best.

Indeed, I think she has. Notice the fellow with the camera, to the model's right-hand side in the photo?



He seems to be capturing his own images of Katherine's beauty. How could anyone resist doing so?

Fans of Miss Roll will be delighted to see one further image from this exciting test--a gorgeous photograph of Katherine in her ever-so-popular two-piece swimsuit, tantalizingly disclosed by her embroidered blue mesh sweater.

Click to enlarge

Katherine perfects the look of gentle sensuality in this masterful picture. Casually placing her hand behind her head, she communicates a sense of whimsy, as if the photograph were an incidental snapshot (and such convincing spontaneity is the most challenging demeanour to present successfully). Her golden tresses cascade over her shoulders in thick, loose waves, seemingly begging to be caressed. The sweater hints at the model's buxom décolletage, so amply revealed by her swim apparel. The sandy shore behind her, touching the ocean, which in turn meets with the endless sky, create a dramatic backdrop that seems to stretch into infinity and gives the image depth and freedom.

Bravo again to Miss Roll for a truly outstanding test.

Katherine's breathtaking beauty and truly curvy to-die-for figure make her the ultimate embodiment of size celebration. I find her the most inspirational of all plus-size models - and I admire many of them.

This test series is stunning - but all of Katherine's photo shoots are superlative. They outclass everything else produced by the plus-size industry. I can't wait for a major label of feature her in a gorgeous promotion.

Yet one more image of Miss Roll from this popular series has emerged, showing her reposing on a rock, her tresses cascading down her back, like a latter-day Lorelei.

Click to enlarge

The glimpse of the fair flesh of Katherine's shoulder is tantalizing, while the slate-coloured ocean, the dark rocks, and the sand provide a neutral background against which her golden hair and blue sweater stand out vividly, yet naturally. No mermaid drawn from the sea was ever as irresistible as Katherine. If the Tom Hanks character in the movie Splash were to catch of glimpse of Miss Roll, he would cast Darryl Hannah back into the sea and bestow all of his adoration upon this true vision of preternatural beauty.

Breathtaking artistry from the industry's most gorgeous plus-size model.
