Default More Barbara at Nordstrom

Although there's already a thread about some of Barbara's work in conjunction with Valerie's at Nordstrom this season, I figured that she deserves a post of her own, because she looks absolutely fantastic.

I especially love this new image:

The coat fits so closely, embracing her curves, that it defines her luscious body-type - an ideal mixture of hourglass and pear, but with a curvy waist too.



Barbara also looks lovely in this soft tee, with her hair down. Her expression is serenely beautiful, almost haunting.

This image of a similar product is friendlier, but equally gorgeous.

She also appears in comfortable sleepwear:

And in an elegant black dress:

But long, flowing hair is the key to Barbara's beauty, as evident in this cardigan promo:

Some of the items that they've given Barbara to model aren't especially appealing, but for the die-hard fans, here are the pages:

http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/3054015...pbo=6007135&P=1

While I keep wishing that Nordstrom would have Barbara model its most alluring dresses, I assume that tjey prefer her to showcase the basics, because they know that no other model could make them look as good as she does, thanks to her curvy figure. At any rate, it's always a pleasure to see more examples of her legendary beauty.

I met Barbara once when I first started in the industry and she is as beautiful today as she was then. I don't think the woman ages.

Here are a few new pictures of Barbara at Nordstrom. This is a very casual ensemble, just a stylish silk tee, but look at how Mrs. Brickner's curves give the outfit a womanly outline. Even the most basic attire becomes alluring on a visibly full-figured goddess.

You get the same effect in this cardigan photo. Formless as the sweater is, it's the curve of Barbara's hips that makes the whole look.

One more for good measure:

Not my favourite items, necessarily, but the point is seeing a model who actually looks shapely. It's nice to have Barabara appearing at Reitmans, CJ Banks, and Nordstrom this season.

Ah, at last Nordstrom has given Barbara a really beautiful item to model.

http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/3068619...pbo=6007135&P=1

I love the sheer sleeves, the abbreviated skirt, and the overall lacy elegance of the piece. It's classy, yet has some allure too.



It also comes in black, although I much prefer it in soft pink:



Very feminine. And Barbara models it perfectly.

This is an interesting example of how a product can change from its conception to the time that it's made available to the public.

If you click on the link for the sweater coat in the first picture, you see that now, Nordstrom has lengthened it by a tier.

Compare the two:



And yet Barbara's pose is the same, so the editing was done on the image itself. I find that fascinating, because I would never know which was the original, and which was the altered image.

I actually like the new picture even more, because it emphasizes Barbara's womanly body shape and curvy abdomen more visibly. And it is a nice coat.

Just thought I'd add one more Barbara picture to this thread- a lovely embroidered sweater:

http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/3058040...pbo=6007135&P=1

A basic clothing item, but fitted enough to show the outline of the model's womanly figure, attractive sung at the hips.



Lovely smile and expression.
