Default Lindsey: Wild Exotica

Fans of size-16/18 beauty Lindsey Garbelman will be delighted to see that MSA Models has just released a new test series of the model, photogaphed by Nadine Raphael (whom everyone will remember for her spectacular recent photos of the breathtaking Katherine Roll).

The most exciting image by far is the following portrait, which shows the model looking voluptuous, full-bodied, and ferocious. The scoop neckline showcase Lindsey's buxom contours, cradling her curves and leading the eye downwards. The ornate embroidery gives the top an Old World feel, while the warm lighting and rich crimson hue imparts to the image the qualities of an Orientalist painting. The model's abundant tresses, a thick mane of brunette beauty, flow in the wind, giving Lindsey a sense of wildness and abandon to carnal passions. The eye makeup is bold and dramatic. One might have opted for a slightly different set of the mouth, but the image is thrilling and intoxicating.

A second image shows the model in a striking red trenchcoat. The lighting is highly effective, suggesting a context of espionage and intrigue. Could she be a government spy, tasked with seducing a foreign dignitary? The coat's rich red hue, and the way in which it is lit, endows it with passionate properties. What, one wonders, might she be wearing underneath? Her gaze engages the viewer, yet one senses an attractive hint of fear beneath her self-assurance, as if she is new to the predatory practice, a vixen who knows her power but has not yet tested it.

The final example from this test is a headshot in a very different character for Lindsey. Known for her sweet, gentle portraits, this photograph is a tad darker and more languid, with a sensual heaviness in the eyes.

In the ongoing absence of a full-figured-fashion print magazine in North America, the value of plus-size models producing creative test photos is incalculable. The quality of imagery in commercial campaigns varies greatly, from the beautiful to the bland, but test shoots give curvaceous models the opportunity to present themselves as the gorgeous, desirable, well-fed vixens that they are, which in turn passes on such body confidence to full-figured women in general.

Bravo to Lindsey and Nadine Raphael for this stunning series.
