Christina: ''How To Look Good Naked Canada'' 5
This week's installment of How To Look Good Naked Canada provided ample indication that the episodes are taped more than one at a time.
Christina's clips--and there were many--showed her in outfits that she wore on previous runway finales, and also featured her sporting the "mini Gibson" hairstyle that fans appreciated in a prior show.
The first views of Miss Schmidt appeared even before the title sequence rolled. The show generally includes several shots of Christina within the first minute--to make sure that the audience is hooked right till the end of the hour.
Another glimpse of Christina appeared prior to an early commercial break. No "Don't touch that dial" injunction could ever be as persuasive as shots of this pretty model at keeping viewers tuned in.
Another teaser clip, right before a commercial, showed Christina fixing the camera with a bemused expression, even as she adopted her ultra-confident stance.
And then the time arrived for the final runway event. As ever, Christina walked the runway first, sporting a smart outfit that, while somewhat careerist, still displayed considerable allure--at least on the model's curvaceous figure.
Next, Christina emerged in the top shown in the initial teaser clip, above. Note the ultra-snug pants.
Stylists often like to pair a loose item (in this case, the top) with a fitted piece (the trousers). The sheen of the pant fabric helps it match with the glittering top.
But the real key to the success of this look is the curvaceous figure of the model, which gives even the loose top an attractive, rounded shape.
The most interesting item in the runway show--again, one that appeared in a previous episode as well as this one--was this fitted dress, with the eye-catching gold bustier. Note how it hugs the model's hips, in this image.
Here, even more alluringly, it embraces Christina's curvy waist and abdomen, playing up her luscious contours.
Lingerie looks always close the shows, and in this case, the episode featured Christina in the same grey item that it employed as a pre-commercial "teaser" earlier in the hour.
It speaks well of Christina that she gets into the spirit of the show every week, enthusiastically applauding the girls being made over, earnestly cheering on their journey towards body confidence. (Note the rondeur of Christina's waist, as revealed in this dress.)
Another applauding shot gives us a rare look at Christina's lovely profile, at once youthful and girlish, yet elegant and sophisticated.
Every week, How To Look Good Naked Canada tells another inspiring story of a woman whose insecurities are swept away and replaced by a heady dose of self-esteem. It is a fine program with a commendable theme. But nothing in the episodes conveys the message that "plus-size equals plus beauty" better than the presence of Christina Schmidt--so gorgeous, youthful and genuinely curvy; at once chic and fresh, classy and fun.
