Russian Plus-Size Beauty
In this post, we are privileged to introduce not just one, but two exciting talents in the worldwide movement toward size celebration, both hailing from Mother Russia: gorgeous up-and-coming plus-size model Viktoria Kasiyan, and talented photographer Ilya Fedorov.
This duo recently collaborated on a timely and pro-curvy online editorial titled "Put a Ring on It!" (after the Beyoncé video of the same name).
A closer look at one of the cover photos indicates why proponents of size celebration are so excited about this model's prospects. She exhibits every trace of ideal plus-size beauty, from round facial features to soft, plump hands with dimpled knuckles, to a smooth neck area with the clavicle submerged in soft fullness.
Further images from the editorial exhibit the model's generous, sensually untoned waist. They also reveal that she has a real knack for posing, as the witty image on the right demonstrates.
Viktoria's opulent voluptuousness endows each item she wears with an alluring, feminine shape, while her long, luxuriant tresses complete the timeless look.
Mr. Fedorov's photography is note perfect. Even without a title, most viewers would immediately recognize this editorial as a take-off on the Beyoncé video. However, the photographer manages to reference the source without making the photoshoot a mere copy of the original, but rather, using it as a springboard to create images that stand on their own as a fashion editorial.
In addition to collaborating on the aforementioned editorial, this model/photographer team previous worked together on Mr. Fedorov's 2012 calendar for the Russian online publication, Happy Plus. Interested viewers can see each image from the calendar at the photographer's Web site and Flickr page, but Victoria's picture is unquestionably the most accomplished, in its playful, retro sensuality. The model's expression is gentle and sweet; her offering-the-pie pose is an innocent seduction; and the tug at the dress is a provocative tease. Most alluring of all, however, is the heady display of the soft, rounded flesh of her arms, neck-and-shoulder area, and buxom décolletage.
An outtake from the calendar is equally delightful, with the model's pose accentuating her voluptuousness via the sweetheart neckline of the dress. The floral accessory in her hair is a lovely touch.
In addition to her work with Mr. Fedorov, Miss Kasiyan has also distinguished herself with a number of independent credits. In December of 2011, she walked in "La Donna Dolce," which is a plus-size-model competition in Russia.
With her raven tresses, Viktoria looks especially attractive in a Judgment of Paris shade of royal purple, wearing a top that emphasizes her buxom curves.
For winning this competition, Miss Kasiyan was awarded a modelling contract with Svesta, a well-known Russian plus-size label. Observe the round fullness of her facial features and the luscious curve under her chin.
Gorgeous and genuinely full-figured, Viktoria is a well-nigh perfect example of a plus-size model. We earnestly wish her every success.
