Default Barbara, Melissa: CJ Banks holiday season

CJ Banks has come out with one of the earliest holiday campaigns this year, following Evans. The new cover page is a charming composition, with images rendered to resemble the oval miniatures or lockets in which the likenesses of beautiful women were preserved in past centuries, so that their suitors could keep their beloved's pictures with them.



The National Maritime Museum in England has just such an oval miniature showing Emma, Lady Hamilton, from 1798. This is one of the most beautiful pictures of Emma I've seen. As the painting shows, she had gained weight at this point, so her facial features have a very attractive fleshiness, a sensually well-fed look, and her complexion is very fair.

I'm delighted to see the lovely Melissa King back at CJ Banks on the cover page, joining Barbara for this campaign. She also appears in the most gorgeous of the new landing-page graphics, with her long tresses looking voluptuous and her figure appearing deliciously curvaceous.



Melissa also appears with Barbara in a picture that shows a pretty curve under her chin.



Of course, Barbara appears on many landing pages, including in this image featuring her in stylish dresses that show off her legs.



Barbara's pose accentuates the curve of her hips:



Several more pretty landing-page graphics:







I look forward to more items featuring Melissa and Barbara in a campaign that is obviously going to be a wonderful, early Christmas gift for aficionados of plus-size beauty.

I do hope that C.J. Banks will publish more images of Melissa from this campaign. In the meantime, here are a few Barbara photos which have emerged.

This shows the current cover of the C.J. Banks site. Gorgeous image, and it's reproduced even larger on the site itself.



This was last week's cover image, which gives a distinct impression of Barbara's curvy figure.



One more recent cover and e-mail photo:

I agree. At a full size 16, Mrs. King continues to do some of the finest work of her career.

Fortunately, a brand-new CJ Banks "style guide" includes another lovely image of Melissa.

I love the way her golden tresses were styled for this campaign -- full, voluminous, and with a touch of "measured messiness." It's a youthful look that's perfect for plus-size goddesses.



Barbara also features prominently in the campaign. This is one of her signature looks showing her feline eyes, which are so bewitching.

Just for fun, here's a Barbara (and Melissa) miscellany from recent weeks:



I love the image on the left, with the Christmas ornaments.



I still hope that more photos of Melissa from this campaign will emerge.



Gorgeous picture.





Stunning:





I like some of the CJ Banks fashions more than others, bur Barbara's images keep me returning to the site, time and again.

CJ Banks has now updated the seasonal "outfits" section of its site, and it features a host of fine images of Melissa and Barbara.

Melissa looks especially attractive in these photos, with her fair hair flowing freely and loosely over her shoulders. I have always admired her work, but it really is remarkable how much prettier she is with longer hair than with the shorter dos she wore in the past.

Although CJ Banks generally offers conservative clothing, I like the bit of spice they added to these outfits, with the red top in one case and the red necklace in the other

Barbara in sequined tops for the holidays.

Something to keep our models cozy and warm.

Also, here is a photo of Barbara and Melissa from a recent CJ Banks cover page:



And two more photos of Mrs. Brickner.

Here are a few new items that are worth noticing. First, C.J. Banks finally gave Melissa an e-mail ad of her own. She looks gorgeous, with her long, blonde hair and overall appearance of fullness. The text in the ad, "Our Gift To You," is very clever, as it could indicate that the picture of Melissa is the actual gift -- and a lovely gift it is.



Melissa also recently appeared on the C.J. Banks site's cover page, showing a hint of an attractive curve under the chin.



And here's yet another photo of Barbara in her white, fur-lined vest.



These lovely images would warm any heart, no matter how cold the weather outside might be.

A feast of new images of Melissa and Barbara appear at the CJ Banks site, starting with this wonderful cover montage.




It really is remarkable what the longer hair does for Melissa, and this voluptuous style specifically. She looks gorgeous in these new outfit photos. I like the colour palette in the image on the right, with the pinks and fuchsias and blues.

More attractive floral-themed prints, giving a wonderful sense of tropical vacation amidst the gloom of winter.

The CJ Banks styling team deserves a round of applause for this campaign, especially for dressing Melissa's hair in such a gorgeous way.

I've never been a fan of the block colour style, but at least the models themselves look gorgeous.

Melissa and Barbara even make these basic jackets look appealing, particularly the red, which looks so good against Melissa's blonde tresses.

This being Christmas, I had some time to catch up on plus-size models' images from around the web. I found three image of Barbara and Melissa that haven't yet been posted in this thread, including this lovely photo of Barbara sharing presents.



CJ Banks seems to enjoy photographing Barbara encumbered with stacks of gifts! Here she wheels out a cartload of denim. It's a bit more clever than the usual commercial photo.



What I really liked, though, was this recent CJ Banks cover with Barbara and Melissa, both looking colourful and lovely.



Even in the simplest commercial contexts, plus-size models make the world a more beautiful place.
