Valerie has just released a new series of test images, and we thought that we would share several of them with her avid and innumerable fans.
The look of these images differs from most of the model's commercial work. The photographer for this test has adopted a yellow/sepia colour tint that creates a rather unique effect.
But what we particularly admire, as always, is Valerie's matchless skill at posing, and her ability to create strikingly different personalities, and evoke starkly contrasting moods.
In this incredible headshot from the "warmer" set of photographs, we see Valerie as a sunburst of joy. Images such as these quite simply make a viewer happy to be alive, and in any outfit, and through any photographer's lens, the model never fails to generate an ambience of pure delight. There is an glory around her when she projects this kind of happiness, an aura that comes directly from the natural world channeling its radiance through this incarnation of purest beauty.
The two images that accompany this headshot provide some invaluable fashion suggestions for the coming season, and indicate how a plus-size goddess can mingle touches of femininity with casual looks to achieve an effect that is by degrees demure and seductive.
With a comfortable bit fitted sweater, a hint of sheer fabric exposed, and a flirty, feminine skirt, a goddess can suggest sexiness rather than stating it outright. The skirt is short enough to tease the viewer with a glimpse of leg--but just a glimpse, mind you. And note the pink waist sash, which many readers here have described as a delightful fashion accessory.
And with the sweater removed, in this outfit, we see Valerie in the pose that one often finds on Cosmopolitan magazine covers. The denim is a matter of personal choice, but sheer tops like these are almost unbearably sensual. They create the "suggestive" effect of gossamer, translucent "wet drapery," such as one finds in Pierre Auguste Cot paintings, but still leave something to the imagination--which makes the allure of the outfit more irresistible than even lingerie adornment. And with its vintage pattern, this particular example of a "gossamer top" is especially breathtaking (especially inasmuch as it is adorning Ms. Lefkowitz).
In an outfit such as this, and with a soupcon of self-assurance, any vixen can become Valerie by Day--and if you do, it won't be the noontime sun that makes temperatures rise and hearts flutter in your midst.
