Default THRILLING Christina Schmidt at Torrid!!


Fans of Christina Schmidt will be thrilled to know that she just completed a second shoot for Torrid--and the results are perhaps the most exciting and gorgeous that any plus-size model has yet created.

The hairstyles are very experimental, and some work better than others, but Christina herself looks more curvaceous and gorgeous than ever, possessing the most angelic facial features, and shapeliest figure, of any model in the world.

This is "wild beauty" at its finest--and like nothing we have ever seen before.

Here is one of the sexiest, most alluring images that any plus-size model has ever produced:

The temperature reading is off the charts.

And here is a product image that demonstrates that she has the most seductive curves of any model working today:

Be sure also to check out a high-voltage red dress at the following link, which will remind many viewers of her sizzling crimson outfit at the YAA awards.

Christina has just advanced the cause of size celebration by a decade with this shoot.

And just think--this is only the beginning . . .

Omigod, I cant believe Im actually seeing these pix. Theyre too good to be true! That first photo you posted is so exciting, its like what everybody has always wished and hoped to see on a plussize model - but I think no one ever believed it would happen.

I didnt think Christina could ever surpass her black & gold dress photo, from her last Torrid shoot (the one with her hands in her hair) - but she did!

And I SOOO want that dress. I kept looking for a red dress like the one Christina wore to that awards show, but could never find one. This one is a bit different, but just as eye-popping.

Check out this great photo as well, for Christinas expression, although she looks even better when she has her hair down -



But the shot that really gets me is the one I am going to link here. It isnt a shirt I would wear, but Christinas expression is so....WOW. It goes way beyond confidence. Its a true supermodel look, if ever I saw one.

Christina continues to surpass every previous shoot, and the first image posted in this thread is absolutely stunning. The unique hairstyle, the decadent (plum?) lipstick. It's an amazing look. But that coy, coquettish pose is what really makes it memorable. THAT should be a poster, or a magazine ad.

Melanie is right, too- there's "confidence," and then there's that something extra that supermodels have- that "x" factor, that "I'm-a-goddess" poise. Whatever it is, Christina has it.

Kudos again to the Torrid photographer. Christina always glows, but when she shoots for Torrid, she kicks it up another notch. Together, they produce magic.

Another great shot-

I just e-mailed that first image to about twenty people. It's the definitive expression of what Torrid is all about. And how can they go wrong with young Miss Schmidt? She has the face of Shannon Marie, and the curves of Barbara Brickner. It's an extremely enviable combination. She is one of the very, very few models who have a truly natural and shapely figure - so girls her age can view her as an aspirational ideal, and yet also relate to her.

I think Christina makes those "dangerous" looks work so well because her features are so innately soft and pretty. That plays off very well against styling/makeup with a touch of......wickedness. Models with harder features just end up looking harsh when they do "edgy" looks, but Christina manages to perfectly blend the wildness with feminine beauty.

Christina is my favorite model, ever. Every time I see new pictures of her, she is doing something new and different. I think she's living out the dreams that a lot of curvy girls have. I'm always exciting about what she'll do next. She's doing the things we'd all like to do if we were brave enough. She inspires me SO much, more than I can say.

Thank you Christina, and thank you Torrid.

I must admit that it is an absolutely stunning series. My own favourite has to be this one, which I just located in the various interactive pages at Torrid. Christina has a way of modeling dresses that sets her apart from all other models (apart from Barbara). What an extraordinary talent, and what a remarkable beauty.



Ah, to be young again......

Christina has an unfailing ability to make outfits look attractive that might never otherwise catch one's notice.

Here, for example, is a spectacular new image of Christina in an urban ensemble. This is light-years removed from the kind of apparel that we usually highlight at this site. So how does Christina manage to make it so feminine? The irresistible roundness of her facial features, and the curvaceous perfection of her figure, ensure that her Classical beauty shines through. Even the hairstyle--which takes a little getting used to--somehow becomes transformed into a goddesslike arrangement in this image. (The style's "voluptuous volume" certainly helps, as does the manner in which it coyly shades one of the model's eyes.)

Even in urban attire, the timeless beauty of Miss Schmidt (and of all true plus-size goddesses) cannot be obscured.

Just like everyone else here, I've been checking the Torrid site all day to catch every amazing new picture of this super-supermodel. Torrid hasn't been so consistently brilliant since Charlotte Coyle's unforgettable cover series, last year.



Just look at the new Torrid main page. Not only does it have Crystal Renn's best Torrid cover (by far), but it's surrounded by three landing-page icons, all show Christina. And not only does she have probably the most gorgeous figure of any model in the industry, but that face.....just leaves me speechless.

All three new images on the landing pages are really striking. I especially like the one for the "Work Wear" section -



Those great accessories make the ensemble come alive, and the lacy black bra/cami underneath, showing decolletage, makes it a really head-turning outfit. But you truly need a curvy figure to make it work - and Christina has the best figure for plussize fashion of anyone.

I think what makes that denim jacket look soooooo good on Christina is that it's a shorter length. That really shows off a sexy waist, esp. with a fitted top underneath. I think it's a great style for "curvy vixens."

I also love all of the different looks that Christina sported for this shoot. Check out the item below, which is a black top. For the blue/white denim shot above, Christina had that nude lipstick, but for this black item, she wore deep, passionate red. It's alluring and elegant at the same time. Nice expression, too.
