Default Christina Hendricks as Andromeda

As the Daily Mail reports, Christina Hendricks will be appearing in a new issue of Black Book magazine. She may not be genuinely full-figured by the standards of a plus-size model, but she is nevertheless visibly curvaceous, far more so than most Hollywood starlets.

This image of Christina by the seashore is one of the most sensual I have ever seen. The dress accentuates her buxom opulence. The gold-chain ornamentation gives it an exotic look, and subconsciously suggests that reinforcement was required for her heavy voluptuousness. The romantic tresses add to her femininity. Christina looks sensual and vulnerable - irresistible.

This picture is also stunning in how the dress embraces every contour of her womanly figure. The shoreline settings adds an elemental, epic scope to the images. I love the contrast between the weathered rocks and her soft curves.

In the cover image, Christina recalls Venus, rising from the sea (although, unfortunately, I think her hips might have been digitally narrowed a little). Still, the pose, with Christina playing with her tresses, is enticing.

Her pose in the following image is highly dramatic. And when I saw the rope tied around her waist in this image, and thought back to the decorative chains binding her bust in the first dress image, it occurred to me that these were symbols of binding, or fastening. And that tipped me off to the subtle theme of the images.

In her position by the rocky coastline, Christina recalls Andromeda, the Greek princess who was tied to a rock as a sacrifice to the Kraken, but was freed by the hero Perseus (as depicted in the original Clash of the Titans movie).

This forum published a memorable article likening Tenille Roberts' swimwear images to the Andromeda myth, and the comparisons apply equally well to this beautiful Christina Hendricks editorial.
