That's quite an interesting grouping. Perhaps the most unexpected listing is the Snow White tale. It never occurred to us to look for any points of similarity between that fairy-tale and the Greek myth, but, as the writer notes, both stories involve contests of beauty, and highly-symbolic apples. The Disney video that is featured on her Web page is noteworthy as well, because in that cover image, Snow White appears to be eyeing her forbidden fruit with a degree of desire that is not reflected in the film itself, but hints at some of the suggestiveness of the original tale.

Incidentally, here is Torrid's "Snow White" herself, in one of the loveliest images that she has yet created for the junior-plus retailer. The hairstyle, a tad longer, is very becoming on her, and in this image, the attributes that she shares with the fairy-tale heroine are more pronounced than before--the fair skin, the coal-black hair, and, especially, the "lips as red as blood" (as described in the original Grimm tale).
