Charlotte Coyle

A Panegyric


This Web site is a modest panegyric for one of the most gorgeous women whose beauty has ever been captured on film.

With cascading blonde tresses and aquamarine eyes, Charlotte Coyle is quite simply the most exciting rising star in the plus-size modelling world. She wears a U.S. dress size 18, and possesses the truly goddesslike measurements of 40d-39-51. Miss Coyle gained fame through a series of Torrid covers that caused an absolute sensation, thanks to her heart-stopping beauty, her steamy expressions (which surpass those of any Victoria’s Secret models), and her curvaceous proportions. She also appeared in the October 2006 issue of British Good Housekeeping magazine, and is now the face (and figure) of the plus-size line at Marks & Spencer.

Miss Coyle made headlines throughout the U.K. earlier this year by staging a “beauty contest for full-figured women” titled Beauty Reborn. This sensational event was filmed, and aired on Britain’s Channel 4, as part of its Shape of the Nation series, on August 10th, 2006, attracting 2.3 million viewers. It was subsequently broadcast in Belgium, on Channel One, under the title Miss Maatje Meer.

Charlotte has also appeared on Channel 4’s Richard & Judy show, on the premier episode of the E4 series, Russell Brand’s Got Issues, and on the Five Live program, Make Me a Supermodel: Extra.

Charlotte is represented by Wilhelmina ten20 in New York, by Close Models in London, by Model-Team in Hamburg (Germany), by Agence Plus in Paris, and by Heffner Management in Seattle.

This site currently offers four galleries of Miss Coyle’s most extraordinary images. Our video gallery includes numerous video clips of Charlotte Coyle’s exciting appearances on British television, as well as audio clips of her radio interviews.

Anyone wishing to learn more about Miss Coyle should read a cover story from The Daily Mirror, titled “Why I’m Proud to be Big and Beautiful”—a gripping account of Charlotte’s struggle with body image, which is by turns heartbreaking and inspiring. In May 2006, Charlotte also appeared on RTE television in Ireland, to participate in a discussion about body image and the media. Most recently, The Telegraph ran a major story about Charlotte Coyle against the backdrop of the Madrid Fashion Week’s commendable ban on underweight models.

Charlotte’s fans may wish to vote for her at the Judgment of Paris survey, which offers visitors an opportunity to choose their favourite from among the world’s loveliest plus-size models. Visitors may also wish to explore the Timeless Beauty page, which situates full-figured feminine beauty within a historical and artistic framework, as well as No Second Troy, which charts the progress of the survey voting.

Charlotte’s fans also frequently post messages of exuberant praise for her breathtaking work at the Judgment of Paris forum.
