Default Sophie Sheppard for Nordstrom

A post on this forum late last year mentioned that gorgeous plus-size model Sophie Sheppard would be appearing in a campaign for Nordstrom.

http://www.judgmentofparis.com/boar...read.php?t=2549

I delightedly viewed the Nordstrom site all throughout the winter to see which items she would be modelling. Just today, though, it occurred to me that no one ever posted a thread itemizing her exciting Nordstrom work, so here it is.

(All of these items are still available for purchase, by the way, and many of them are now on sale, making them quite a bargain.)


DRESSES

This is definitely the standout item that Sophie has modelled for Nordstrom, an Adrianna Papell Soutache Illusion Bodice Dress. I love how it defines her curvaceous figure, showing off the womanliness of her hips and the fullness of her waist. It's her soft middle that gives the dress such a beautiful, natural shape.





When plus-size models are too narrow-waisted, it creates an artificial, distorted, disproportionate look. But models like Sophie, with natural waists, shape garments into beautiful forms.



The reverse view also shows soft curves along the model's back.



I've added links to the absolute biggest photos of each item in this thread, front and back.

An attractive Dot Lace Overlay Dress, which looks especially good on Sophie from the reverse view.

I love the regal, violet colour of this V-Neck Faux Wrap Jersey Dress. Its folds have the appearance of Classical drapery.

I'm generally not a fan of maxi apparel, but because this Button Up Maxi Dress is sleeveless, it shows off the model's full, luscious arms.





Worth a look at a larger size. Sophie's arms are so gorgeous, she should show them off at every opportunity. They're the best possible fashion accessory for this otherwise unremarkable item.

This Roll Sleeve Print Dress has a folkloric look, with its East-European-looking print. Quite a few items in the Nordstrom collection have a touch of folklore about them.

This Beaded Illusion Ruched Dress looks especially good on Sophie from the reverse view. Kudos to Nordstrom for providing front and back views of most of its items.





The sheet fabric hints at the soft, luscious curves along her back.

The splash of blue adds so much to this Diagonal Shift Dress, especially as it plays off the pink accents of Sophie's very fair skin tone.

TOPS

Miss Sheppard looks spectacular in this Sejour Silk Tank, which bares those opulent arms of hers, so beautiful because they appear soft and full, not toned.



Very pretty hairstyle too, a bit of a wild look, with a touch of measured messiness.

The first of several peasant tops at Nordstrom (and I know that peasant looks are popular at the Judgment of Paris), this Print Peasant Top is the most attractive of all by the way in which Sophie wears it, with the drawstrings unlaced, exposing her fair decolletage.

Again, Sophie makes this Lucky Brand Print Cotton Tee look unexpectedly eye-catching by the visible suggestion of her full, curvy waist. A true plus-size model can make even a simple item like this appear sensual.

Having such long, gorgeous, blonde tresses also greatly enhances Sophie's look, so that even when she wears a simple item like this Eileen Fisher Ballet Neck Top, the hair is like a kind of jewellery of its own, in its thick masses of gold. This top also hints at Sophie's curvy, 41" waist.

My favourite colour for peasant blouses is white, but this Lucky Brand Print Peasant Top is appealing in its own right. The peasant style is just so innately feminine, in all its incarnations.

The scoop neckline very much beautifies this Lucky Brand Print Tee, especially on a full-figured model like Sophie, who gets to show off a seductive expanse of her decolletage this way.

Very flattering deep-V neckline on this 'Sundial' Print Top for a buxom model, and once again, an alluring suggestion of round fullness at Sophie's midsection.

This Lucky Brand Print Tee is a bit more ordinary, but Sophie turns this into an amazing photo, with her steamy, lidded gaze and that seductive smile.



The monochrome hue also sets off her breathtaking colouring, pink-lipped, flaxen-haired, blue-eyed, and fair skinned. Perfection.

Even though this Karen Kane Print Blouse is loose at the body, the deep V, showing off the model's soft voluptuousness, makes it a sensual item.

I get a definite outdoorsy vibe from this 'Palisades Stevie' Patchwork Print Top.

More in the folkloric vein, I love the embroidery that embellishes this Embroidered Cotton Tee. Plus, it shows just how fantastic Sophie looks in those white jeans, from the reverse view.

It's simply amazing how fresh Sophie's complexion appears when set off against the light blue of this Karen Kane Pocket Shirt. She's definitely prettiest when she stays out of the Australian sun and is protected by the overcast New York skies, becoming so fair-skinned.

Three different colour options for this Foxcroft Stripe Shaped-Shirt. I like the lime green myself.

It really is the fullness in Sophie's face that makes her so attractive. You can see it so well in this image.

SWEATERS

Sophie turned up the steamy sensuality for this 'Rosa' Open Cardigan. The top underneath embraces her curvy waist.





It's a lovely item, and it shows off the soft, sensual curves along her back.

Another example of how blue brings out Sophie's dazzling fairness, and the deep V is very sensual on her buxom figure.

You can see how closely the sleeves of this 'Flutter' Open Cardigan embrace the model's full, rounded arms.

The best aspect of these images showing off a Lucky Brand Print Cardigan is the reverse view, again demonstrating how pro-curvy these close-fitting white jeans are on Sophie's shapely figure.

TWINSETS

Sophie looks great in this 'Slinky Sparkle' Twinset, especially in the reverse-view photo, where she has slipped off her jacket and shows off her bare arms.

Anyone can look good in an artistic editorial shoot with creative attire, but only a model as gorgeous and genuinely full-figured as Sophie can look this beautiful in such a wide variety of apparel, shot against a simple white backdrop, where the focus is exclusively on her. Her size-16/18 figure makes these fashions look far more appealing than they would on a smaller, faux-plus model.

Nordstrom is definitely in my good graces for booking Sophie Sheppard and acknowledging her curvy figure. I hope we see her modelling for Nordstrom again. Anything she models is worth a second look.
