Barbara's majesty is entirely warranted, and a masterpiece like that resoundingly confirms her title as the most beautiful of all plus-size models. As so many others have noted, she is more beautiful today than ever before, impossible as this may seem.
And in the tradition of all great Classical Muses, she has brought out the poetry in Nordstrom. That heart-stopping image prompted the company's copywriter to describe the dress in the following manner:
Ooh la la! Sumptuous silk is delicately detailed with sparkling beads and floral embroidery for an eye-catching fashion. The alluring V-neck and asymmetrical hem feature cascading tiers of flowing fabric accented with bright bead trim for a flirty finish.
"Sumptuous." "Eye-catching." "Alluring." "Flirty." How thrilling to see terms like these used to describe plus-size fashion. These words perfectly characterize the enchantment of that divine image, and demonstrate that Nordstrom now possesses the right idea about full-figured femininity. At last, the beauty of the fashion, and the model--and of the idea behind it--is coming together in a harmonious whole.
And to make things even better, here is how Nordstrom describes the body-embracing cut of the dress:
FIT TIP: Form-fitting; a body-hugging, close fit.
Exactly. What other fit would be worthy of a model with such intoxicating curves?
Here is another image of the same dress, demonstrating how it shows off the irresistibly soft shoulders of the wearer. Any goddess who dresses in such an exciting manner is sure to inspire all those around her (in any number of ways):
