Default Barbara: Summer 2011 at C.J. Banks

The debut of the new summer line at C.J. Banks offers as good a time as any to start a new thread devoted to Barbara's work for this company, especially because the site's cover image is absolutely stunning -- one of the loveliest that I've yet seen from this model/client pairing. In this photo Barbara reminds me of a young Catherine Zeta-Jones (or rather, the young CZJ reminds me of Barbara).



Some of Barbara's most famous images have shown her with her hair tied back in a scarf in this manner. It has always been a terrific look for her, very fresh and invigorating.



Also, I love the plum/berry colours in the new C.J. Banks images for summer.



Even when the outfits are unremarkable, Barbara makes every image a must-see.



I think this picture may be from last season, but it has not yet been posted on the forum, so I thought I'd share it.



Barbara is as vixenish as ever. I can think of no other model who puts the "timeless" in timeless beauty the way she does...

From today's CJBanks advertising, another pair of lovely new images of Barbara:



She has always had the prettiest smile in the world...

The outfits from C.J. Banks this season are very pretty and well worth a look.

As Emily mentioned, Barbara always appears especially beautiful when she has her hair tied back in this manner. The two outfits blend together very well, with their berry colours. It makes me think of a strawberry flavour on the left, and a tropica fruit medley on the right.

Here again, the berry colour of the top on the left make it much more interesting than a casual pullover like this usually would be. Barbara has traditionally been shot in earth tones and such, but this colour scheme looks wonderful on her.

What a fun image on the left. The polka-dot sleeveless top, with the ruching, has a retro '50s feel, and Barbara's joyful pose plays up that quality. Looking at the images reminds one that this is the manner in which beautiful, curvy pin-up girls used to pose.

Very pretty images from C.J. Banks, with Barbara doing her inimitable best.

C.J. Banks is making the most of Barbara this season. True, the attire is...age-specific, let's say, but because it's Barbara doing the modelling, the images are worth a look even if the fashions aren't to one's personal taste.

She appears in a triptych on the current cover page:



Those pieces also come up in a page on the site called "Fashion Event," but the link to this page is titled "Fashion Week." I wonder if C.J. Banks had FFFWeek in mind?

Here are the two new items on separate outfit pages. I particularly appreciate how full-figured Barbara appears in the image on the left.

Very appealing cover at C.J. Banks for Memorial Day:




"Oh, beautiful..." is, of course, a reference to the opening of the famous patriotic song, "America the Beautiful":

Quote:
O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
However, it is also the exclamation that everyone utters whenever they see Barbara Brickner's images. "Oh, beautiful Barbara" is right!

C.J. Banks definitely got into the spirit of Memorial Day this year. Here's the company's current cover page, with a lovely image of Barbara. The same image was also incorporated into a recent e-mail ad. Barbara still has that soft prettiness in her facial features which makes her adorable.



The current C.J. Banks red/white/blue collection, which evokes Americana, suits the holiday perfectly.

For Barbara fans, here are two new C.J. Banks covers with this eternally stunning model. This is the current cover page, showing Barbara in a sleeveless top



The next cover was a bit text-heavy, but it too showed a little photo of Barbara in sleeveless.



C.J. Banks is a fairly conservative client, so to see this company dressing Barbara in sleeveless tops and allowing her to look attractive indicates real progress in how full-figured women who are past the Torrid generation view themselves. They're no longer ashamed of their bodies, nor of their lovely arms, but can relate to a beautiful model like Barbara and show off their arms. It's an encouraging sign.

As a long-time fan of Barbara Brickner, I signed up for C.J. Banks e-mails as well, and was rewarded with the following lovely image of Barbara, flashing her infectious smile:



Similar and equally delightful pictures appear on the company's landing pages. I defy anyone to feel blue after seeing Barbara's joyful and beautiful photos.









This image shows Barbara at her buxom best. A very sexy photo, for C.J. Banks!



A pair of new images photos appear in the "Outfits" portion of the site:

With Barbara's beauty and her figure, she endows even images of casual attire with curvaceous allure.

C.J. Banks has a gorgeous picture of Barbara on its cover page right now, one that also appeared in a new e-mail flyer.



It makes me want to take a vacation somewhere warm. So pretty.

C.J. Banks has one more pair of outfits for summer, modelled by Barbara:

All of this company's commercial images with this legendary plus-size model are pretty, but I still wish that C.J. Banks might do something adventuresome and shoot a campaign with Barbara in a dramatic, natural location. But even if they don't, I'm glad that they continue to feature her as the company's "face" (and figure).
