Default Re: Sophie Sheppard: Curves in Couture

Below is a link to the official post-show press release which M.O.D. issued after the event.

It lists the many guests who appeared at the show, the media that covered it, the causes for which it was organized, etc. But I think one line will especially please Judgment of Paris readers:

The highlight of the event was Curves in Couture, with top international curvy plus models such as Sophie Sheppard, Lizzie Miller, Robyn Lawley, fresh off the cover of Vogue Italia, and Toccara Jones, in sizes 14-18. The models sported couture, from both up and coming designers like Danielle Liane and Miss Lacy, and established design houses such as Anna Scholz, Carolyn de la Drapiere, Jill Alexander, Ilda Di Vico Couture Milliner, and The House of Scarlet.

I love the fact that Sophie was named first among the "celebrity" plus-size models. The fact is that while other models have major publicity vehicles behind them and have "elite" industry backing, Sophie has really connected with the public at the grassroots level, expressly through her images and her beauty. And when I see the videos from the show, and see that she was both the curviest and most gorgeous model at the show, I can see why. She represents exactly the image that the public wishes to see in full-figured models.

Bravo to M.O.D. for organizing this amazing event.

I recently discovered a FB page for Curves in Couture, where I located three new, never-before-seen images of Sophie Sheppard on the runway at this event. These comes from a photographer named Darren Brade.

The Curves in Couture logo is, unfortunately, a tad obtrusive, but here's Sophie looking oh-so-delectable in her cherry-red dress, showing off every luscious curve of her physique.

Fair as an angel in her Anna Scholz look, which embraces her figure so perfectly.

Another captivating look at Sophie in Anna Scholz. A true goddess.

Just imagine a world where models like Sophie appeared in every runway show, in every fashion week, every season. A world that beautiful would be heaven on earth, and there's no reason why that shouldn't be this world, the world we all live in.
