“No Second Troy”

The Judgment of Paris Survey Results

“Paris was a bold man who presum’d / To judge the beauty of a Goddess.”
-John Dryden

Spring 2014 brings with it a brand-new leader in the voting results for the Judgment of Paris online survey. Gorgeous plus-size model Sophie Sheppard (38dd-39-49, size 18), an Australian-born stunner signed with Wilhelmina and now residing in New York, is currently universally hailed as the most beautiful and popular model in the industry. In addition to her luscious figure, Sophie’s long, golden tresses and fair features enshrine her as the living embodiment of timeless beauty.

Kelsey Olson retains considerable popularity and remains in close contention with Sophie. Her angelic features and ability to generate looks of the softest innocence continue to endear her to the public. And although her career has been on hiatus for some years now, Shannon Marie is third in line for the crown. Her beauty continues to be the standard against which all plus-size models are judged, and no goddess has yet emerged with facial features lovelier than hers.

But currently, Miss Sheppard is indisputably the most acclaimed and attractive of all full-figured goddesses, and therefore the loveliest woman in the world. In an industry plagued by far too many faux-plus models, Sophie is gorgeous and genuinely full-figured, and truly embodies the timeless feminine ideal.

Sophie Sheppard

Was this the face that launch’d a thousand ships
And burnt the topless towers of Ilium?
Sweet Helen, make me immortal with a kiss.
Her lips suck forth my soul: see where it flies!
Come, Helen, come, give me my soul again.
Here will I dwell, for heaven is in these lips,
And all is dross that is not Helena.
I will be Paris, and for love of thee
Instead of Troy shall Wittenberg be sack’d,
And I will combat with weak Menelaus
And wear thy colours on my plumed crest,
Yea, I will wound Achilles in the heel
And then return to Helen for a kiss.
O, thou art fairer than the evening’s air
Clad in the beauty of a thousand stars,
Brighter art thou than flaming Jupiter
When he appear’d to hapless Semele,
More lovely than the monarch of the sky
In wanton Arethusa’s azur’d arms,
And none but thou shalt be my paramour.

Christopher Marlowe, Doctor Faustus. (1604–16)
