Default Christina at Torrd in the New Year

Torrid features several new 2008 pictures of Christina, and best of all, I like this tube tob in a deep, rich colour, and with an interesting design:

Also very attractive- and definitely the prettiest new picture of Christina- is this demure, traditional, yet contemporary blouse. The ruffle detail down the front is an eye-catching touch. Christina always looks so attractive in ultra-feminine styles; I wish she would model them more often.

Torrid has an "edge" section, but I much prefer its more "girlish" creations.

Oh, and there's also this black top:

I hope we continue to see more of Christina at Torrid.

Very cute. I prefer the girlish style too - the whole "edge" does not do it for me...I got their polkadot swimsuit...I can't wait to see how it looks!

Here are a few more.

A demure white blouse. This is a very pretty, classic item:

The same style in blue:

A grey "tunic sweater." I don't really go for the tunic look, but at least the neckline is a V, so it doesn't rob the wearer of every trace of allure.

Again, a similar style - this one in black:

Nice work - but I really wish Torrid would shoot a Christina video. Kelsey looked amazing in the most recent Torrid video. Whether a behind-the-scenes clip of a photoshoot, or something more creative, a Christina/Torrid video is the dream!

Default Heavenly perdition

Christina's Torrid work definitely constitutes the most popular campaign so far this year, and it's well worth taking a second glance at these stunning images and attractive designs.

Our own favourite piece of the new year has to be this delicate, feminine top, which blends modest and sexy in an ideal way. The cap sleeves and dot design give it a 19th-century look, yet the open neckline and the sheer fabric heighten its contemporary "wow" factor. The hoop fastenings, with the loops tugging at the buttons, also add a suggestive touch. The wearer conveys an impression of being at once both demure and alluring, an effect that is amplified by Christina's stunning figure. The model's expression is confident, self-assured, but professional, giving the piece its most effective context--a work setting in which a vixen doesn't want to lose her femininity, but wants to remain indisputably attractive. But the piece could be just as effective for a night out.

Transforming from angel to temptress, Miss Schmidt amply demonstrates the full-blown allure of this tube top, which can only be termed "heavenly perdition." The fascinating crucifix design contrasts with the top's devilish hue. No item could be more eye-catching on a voluptuous vixen. It leaves the neck and shoulder area--especially attractive features on a curvy girl--open to view. But the most seductive aspect of this piece is how closely it embraces the wearer's figure, lingering over every luscious curve. Christina has perhaps the most stunning figure of any model in the industry today, and the top seems tailor-made to exhibit her soft beauty. But any vixen would look dangerous in this sizzling piece. The model's expression is casual, indicating her awareness that she needs no extra dazzle to augment her devastating appeal in this high-temperature design. Observe, as a special detail, Christina's trademark accessory--ornate earrings, which perfectly harmonize with the top's intricate print.

For a different effect, this gold top fits comfortably free around the wearer's figure, but is just as seductive as the previous items, owing to its highly sensual design around the bust. Again, Christina's expression is easygoing and direct, a casual look from someone who knows full well that her attire gives her all the allure-factor she needs. Note in particular the model's bewitching eyes--joyful, but with a touch of irresistible wickedness too.

And finally, let's have a look at this Apple Bottoms shirt that Christina makes look so delicious. The citrus hue is extremely popular, and although voluptuous vixens look best in closely-fitted designs (like the red-hot tube top above), observe how a model with a figure as Classically-proportioned as Christina's can give even a looser top a shapely silhouette. Note also the model's adorable pout--an expression that we have never seen from Miss Schmidt before, but one which conveys, in a single look, a glimpse of a multifaceted, fascinating personality.

(You may click on any of the images above to view the original product pages.)

Michael Anthony always achieves magic with Christina, and this latest shoot may have been their most accomplished collaboration to date. We eagerly look forward to more from this exciting model/photographer pairing--and from the inimitable Torrid group, which is making the dream of "exciting plus-size design" a reality.

- Still our favourite recent item . . .

These pictures are all lovely, especially the one in the white blouse. It plays up Christina's youthful, soft, pretty qualities and heightens her beauty. I like the styling too, but nothing can beat the wavy, romantic hairstyle Torrid gave Christina for the shoot just prior to this one. That was their best look for Christina yet.

And I really appreciate the fact that in the red tube-top photo (with such an interesting print!), you can actually see Christina's curvy waist. Plus-size girls should become more comfortable with wearing figure-embracing clothing, which makes them look shapely (rather than loose clothing, which makes them look formless).

Seeing the pictures larger likes this makes a much stronger impression than seeing the tiny thumbnails at the Torrid site. True, you can enlarge the Torrid thumbnails, but then, you only see pieces of the photo. Full-size pictures such as these show off the model's beauty, and the look of the garments, much better.
