Default Christina Schmidt: gorgeous at Torrid!

There are two new AMAZING images of Christina Schmidt at Torrid. At last! It's more in the prom series, and she looks STUNNING.

If I was having my prom this year, I would definitely choose of the great dresses that she's shown off at Torrid.

The images are utterly stunning, as Christina's work always is, but the dresses do not appear to have been earmarked for prom. Regardless, they look absolutely breathtaking on the model.

One is called a Mesh Glitter Tube Dress, and it shows once again why this style--strapless, sleeveless--is the most celebratory dress design of all for the fuller female figure. Christina looks simply radiant in it. She has a figure that would make every Hollywood waif die of envy, and she adopts an especially effective, sly expression in this image. The colour is disarmingly gentle and innocent, but the model's look (and her curves) give it an alluring dimension as well.

The other is dubbed a Glitter Halter Dress, and once again, Christina presents it in the most enticing way imaginable.

Torrid has helpfully also provided a reverse-view of the item, which is absolutely essential in halter styles, which are designed with an awareness of how they look from every line of sight, and this dress is no exception.

Straight-size designers would like to forget that goddesses exist in three dimensions, not two, but Torrid has a 360-degree understanding of timeless beauty. The bow at the neck is a nice detail.

Christina's work is unfailingly sensational, and it is a delight to see more results from her latest Torrid shoot. Who knows what other masterpieces have yet to be unveiled?

Christina looks lovely. I actually thought of her today when I read an article online article about how repulsively skinny most modern actresses are. And it seems that "mothers" aren't the only ones who are calling for curvier celebrities. In a short piece in the Baltimore Sun,

http://www.baltimoresun.com/feature...-artslife-today

a columnist reported that Alec Baldwin has stated the same thing, and bemoaned how androgynous-looking Hollywood actresses have become:


" "MOST WOMEN in leading roles are very boyish-looking. The one girl working right now who I think is a real beauty in a classic sense -- the only 12-cylinder engine -- is Catherine Zeta-Jones." So says Alec Baldwin to Elle's Andrew Goldman."


I could do without the car comparison, but it's nice to see a GQ-type actor criticize the waifs as being frankly "boyish-looking." The columnist adds that "I do agree that Zeta-Jones continues in the grand, lush tradition of Elizabeth Taylor and Ava Gardner."

I would agree too, although Catherine Zeta-Jones's most stunning look of all dates from the time of her last pregnancy, when she became plus-size - and gorgeous.

If only Hollywood would feature actresses like Christina more often, who are both visibly full-figured and gorgeous in the classic film-noir way, with high cheekbones and rounded features.

I think screenwriters would create richer and more interesting parts as well, if more luscious-looking actresses were available as muses.

...is Christina, of course! In these images, she completely commands the spotlight.

I don't know if anyone remember the teen movie Clueless (the contemporary adaptation of Jane Austen's novel Emma), with Alicia Silverstone. But the girls in that film would identify a cute guy by saying, "He's a Baldwin". It's nice to have one of the brothers whose surname is used to define male attractiveness asking Hollywood to choose curiver actresses.

There's a scene in La dolce Vita where Antia Ekberg, playing a movie star (that's right- an actress playing an actress) steps off the airplane in Italy and tells the paparazzi, "I love Italian food. I love your spaghetti and cannelloni". To me, that defines a true movie-star attitude: basically, "I'm so gorgeous that I can eat whatever I want". In her interviews, Christina has always expressed that kind of confidence, which is one reason why she's so inspiring.

I hope no one minds me saying so at Easter, but Christina Schmidt is the reason God made dresses! Seriously, she looks incredibly alluring in these designs. No one else gives a better idea of how a dress can look at its very best than Christina, because she has the perfect curvy figure for modelling them. Im glad to see how the halter dress looks from the other side, although I still think halters could go around a little lower in the back, for the added "wow" factor.

Torrid is really teasing us with the gradual roll-out of these latest images. I cant wait to see what else Christina got to model during her most recent shoot...
