Default Marritt: A Touch of Romance


Fans have long hoped to see a proper test of popular San Francisco beauty Marritt (size 16), whose Polaroids caused such a sensation. Today, (finally,) Ford S.F. released new images of their division's star model.

Leading off is this majestic new headshot. Marritt's blonde tresses flow around her face in cascading waves. The fact that the model is bare, except for her necklace, gives the image undeniable sensuality, yet her hand-clasped-over-the-chest pose, and the vulnerable look in her eyes, suggests an attractive touch of modesty. Her neck and shoulders have an alluringly soft appearance. Note how the pastel green of her necklace plays off against the soft pink lip colour.

The test also features several appealing outdoors images, most notably the following picture, which shows off the model's gorgeous arms--soft and full, free of androgynous muscle "tone." Her smile is natural and unaffected. Notice how the vibrant hue of the dress contrasts effectively with the earth-tone backdrop. The bracelet adds another lively splash of colour, one that compliments both the dress and the location.

A full-length view of the model in the same outfit has an almost epic quality. A gust of wind gives her dress dramatic movement. Marritt augments the goddess effect by adopting the intensely alluring gesture of playing with her hair. Observe the positioning of the belt--high enough to emphasize the bust, and to avoid compressing her sensually full waist, which is hinted at by the fabric pressing against it. The rocky setting contributes to the drama of the image, suggesting a modern-day Helen of Troy standing on the Greek shore.

The test also features two images that demonstrate how a plus-size-model shoot can be situated within a city environment, yet still exhibit a timeless quality. In this eye-catching and original image, Marritt is seen boarding a vintage train from the glory days of steam locomotives. The picture has an Old World flavour, a touch of romance--enhanced by the model's flirtatious glance. She seems to be the beautiful woman of fable, glimpsed from afar, whose coy look says, "Come, pursue me."

A closer view shows the effective use of a pink top to add colour to the otherwise neutral ensemble. The way in which the model's hair is seen flowing out from beneath the hood is particularly lovely. In a storybook romance, the suitor would gently push back the hood and watch, enamoured, as her fair hair tumbled over her shoulders.

And finally, the test includes a sensual sleepwear photo, reminding one of Marritt's extraordinary Polaroids. The details are what make the image so alluring, such as the way in which the strap of her garment presses into her skin, suggesting the softness of the model's figure.

Marritt is easily one of the most promising young models in the ranks of the major agencies. It is a joy to finally see a test series that does justice to her beauty. As long as she retains her curves, and never diminishes her allure, she will remain a bona fide goddess.

Beautiful images of a beautiful model. And it IS wonderful to know that she is a size 16. That really should be the industry standard, with fuller models than that as well.

Marritt is also in the brand-new Mervyns flyer. For a regular mailer picture, this is surprisingly beautiful - a best for the Mervyns/Marritt collaboration, without a doubt. Her figure looks luscious.



Very attractive pose, and a flattering top in a great colour.

Marritt's fans will be delighted to see that we have obtained further images from her exceptionally successful recent test. And, as is so often the case, it turns out that many of these images are far more captivating than her agency's official selections for her portfolio.

Most dramatic of all is the following picture--Marritt's best to date--which is a well-nigh perfect presentation of timeless beauty. Observe how full and shapely the model's gorgeous arms appear. Her buxom charms are very much in evidence. The model's relaxed, easygoing manner suggests her complete comfort with her luscious appearance. Her long, flowing blonde tresses confirm her as an earthbound goddess. Even her facial features appear sensually full. More than any other image, this picture establishes he as one of the most beautiful plus-size models in the industry.

Scarcely less stunning is this glorious photo, which similarly exhibits the intoxicating roudness of the model's arms. Note especialy that their shapeliness is derived from gentle fullness, not from any trace of androgynous "tone." It is the softness of Marritt's figure that makes her so extraordinarily attractive. The look of invitation in her eyes could only be generated by someone who is fully aware of the power of her own beauty.

The agency selected a smiling photo from this series, but note how much more interesting is Marritt's faraway expression, seen here (although Marritt does have a beautiful smile). Again, the generous circumference of the model's arm makes the viewer's heart flutter, and observe the all-important detail that Marritt's clavicle is fully submerged in soft fullness. The hat is perhaps unnecessary, but the styling is otherwise excellent, with the belt well positioned so as not to constrict Marritt's lovely, full waist, and to emphasize her buxom allure.

Next, we proceed to this image, which shows how much more dramatic and imperious an effect Marritt creates without the hat, allowing her magnificent tresses to spill freely over her shoulders. The pose, with the model playing with her hair, is intensely seductive, and her expression is appropriately commanding. In Classical Antiquity, her well-fed figure would have been immortalized in marble as a paragon of loveliness.

For a change of pace, we come to another headshot--similar to the one posted earlier, but superior. Observe that in this version, a trace of the model's left arm as well as the right is visible, and the model's implied au naturel state gives the picture intense frisson. Once again, it is the model's halo of golden tresses that takes the viewer's breath away. She truly seems to be an angel in human form.

The next group of images shows how a shapely model can endow even casual attire with intense sensuality. Unlike her earlier "train" pictures, in these Marritt allows her raincoat to fall open, revealing the pink top underneath, which coyly suggests the richness of her proportions.

This picture intimates the seductive swell of the model's waist. The model's expression is fittingly dreamy. (Click on the image to see it at a larger size, and consider how the second train stretching off into the perspective behind her, and the foliage outside the station in the background, contribute to the faraway sensation that Marritt's gaze communicates.)

Click to enlarge

Here we see a similar pose, but with a more mysterious expression--one exposing a hint of desire. This image similarly hints at the alluring fullness of the model's waist, and reveals buxom proportions as well. The hood creates a fascinating effect, as the model's tresses spill out of it in a golden flood, disclosing her half-hidden beauty.

Notice, in this image, the "measured messiness" of Marritt's hair, intimating the model's wild and passionate nature--a sensation that is amplified by the her expression. The half-opened coat tantalizes but does not disclose, involving the viewer, and securing his attention. Even the cross-legged pose suggests that the model is only offering a qualified invitation, and is holding something in reserve.

And finally, Marritt's most revealing pose shows off the stunning beauty of her figure in its full glory, communicating an alluring sensation of weight. Appropriately, this is Marritt's most overtly sensual expression in the series. Time and again, she deftly matches her gaze to the mood of each individual image.

Consider how much excitement these images generate, despite the casual nature of the wardrobe. Only a genuiney full-figured and gorgeous model could accomplish this. On a faux-plus girl, the attire would look dull and shapeless, but on Marritt, the clothing becomes sensual and feminine.

These photos further testify to Marritt's singular beauty and talent. As one of the most gorgeous and promising models in the industry, we have now added her to the survey page, and created a gallery of her images (which will soon be updated with the pictures in the present thread). We look forward to many future successes by this bona fide goddess.

No question about it, Marritt is one of the most beautiful curvy models ever - and that's saying something. What a difference it makes to have a model with a truly full figure! Marritt at a size 16 is infinitely more attractive than all of the boring size 10s and 12s that the industry usually parades, and who actually represent no one (certainly not plus-size women).

Marritt embodies what today's full-figured girls actually look like: They're confident in their appearance, comfortable with themselves, and have active social lives. They never starve themselves, because they know that their beauty is beyond dispute. Any man looking at Marritt would enthuse that she is "HOT" - and it's about time the plus-fashion industry recognizes that this is how their customers (rightly) see themselves.

One of the best additions to the site, ever.

Marritt fans will be pleased to learn that we have yet one more image to share from the model's latest test.

In this picture, Marritt proudly displays her unrestrained beauty, her long, luxuriant tresses cascading over her shoulders. Her arms appear soft and full. She unashamedly flaunts her attractions, holding nothing back, and watches the viewer to observe him melt as she presents herself in such a thrillingly vain manner. Her audience gazes in rapt adoration, mesmerized by her golden hair, watching it flow in gentle waves. She senses the viewer's capitulation to her princess-like charms, and exults in it.

Marritt is now signed with a second division--Ford L.A.--and we hope that the added representation will further increase her opportunities.
