Default Exciting new talent: BETHANY

At 5'10 and a size 14, Bethany, who is signed with Wilhelmina in L.A., is one of the most promising new talents to enter plus-size modelling in several seasons. Like Kelsey Olson before her, Bethany debuts with an absolutely thrilling series of test images, in wardrobe that epitomizes the New Femininity, and shows off her curvaceous figure remarkably well. (Kudos to both the photographer and the stylist.)

The fact that several of the images were photographed in a lush natural setting enhances their effect considerably. The spray of white blossoms and tropical vegetation harmonize with the model's own luxuriant allure. She becomes an expression of the beauty of the natural world around her.

Bethany's womanly proportions, including a curvy midriff, enable her to make even casual attire eye-catching, and testify that true plus-size models can breathe life into any outfit.

But what also makes Bethany a talent to watch is her precocious facility with facial expressions. She gazes at the camera with the self-confidence of a goddess who is well aware of her own allure.

This compelling element of conceit, this surpassing confidence in one's own attractions, is absolutely essential to the success of a plus-size model, and can help impart similar sense of irresistible vanity to the "voluptuous vixens" who will be inspired by her work.

Note the dramatic hairstyle, lavish earrings, and level gaze in the above image, and the fact that the dress is fitted, but without any disfiguring "shapewear."

So long as she at least retains her current size-14 figure, and possibly if she grows out her hair, Bethany could well become one of the most significant new talents in the industry.

We hope to see more of Bethany in the near future.

I love all of the color pictures. She has a gorgeous figure, and can do both steamy looks (the images in the red top), and a really cute smile (in the second photo). Whoever chose the wardrobe knew just what would look terrific on her curvy figure. I agree that longer hair would give her an even more stunning look. It's encouraging to see the industry accepting a model like Bethany- sexy, and truly plus- instead of just adding more of the generic faux-plus models. I hope she achieves major success.
