Default East Asian plus-size actress in TV commercial

This site has long decried the near-total absence of East Asian curvaceous goddesses. While other ethnicities are reasonably well represented in plus-size modelling (and some even over-represented), there have been very few Japanese, Chinese, or Korean full-figured models or actresses, and even fewer who exhibit plus-size beauty.

Until now.

The Ladders (www.theladders.com) is, as far as I can tell, a career-marketing company that helps white-collar workers find gainful employment. They've released a cheeky promotional campaign for 2011 featuring executive types adopting risqué poses.

Most of the actresses are plain, and worse, the commercial includes men too, so many of the scenes are gag-inducing. With one notable exception. The star of the clip is a stunningly gorgeous full-figured East Asian actress. Despite the fact that she is dressed in career wear, to see her posing in a such a provocative manner is breathtaking. She is both gorgeous and genuinely curvaceous (I'd guess a size 16), and is precisely the kind of Oriental plus-size model that the fashion industry is missing.

She shows up in three scenes: she appears first in the video at the very begining, then at 0:12, and finally at 0:23. (Ignore the thumbnail image below.)



Say what you will about the rest of the video, or the concept, but the sight of this remarkable plus-size goddess makes it all worthwhile.
