Layla in “Love at First Sight”
We’re debuting a new format for our Eye Candy posts – complete with more detailed critiques and “graded” categories. View the photoshoot we’ve “hung” on our wall, read our critique, vote, and last but not least – sound off in the comments!
The Look: Layla’s modified a t-shirt to her liking, crafting it into a shoulder-and-belly baring top. It’s cute and casual, but with that much bra strap showing, it’s almost a little hoochie. The big earrings don’t help that, either. The jeans and boots are nice, though, and cover enough skin to balance out the look. In a few photos, her hair looks a little limp and damp, like she just had water dumped on her, but others it’s big and beautiful. Much like her hair, the whole look is a bit hit-or-miss. Grade: B-
The Poses: Her poses are very sensual, her hands messing with her hair and resting on her hips. She’s got the “fierce face” down pat, grimacing just enough into the camera without heading into “pained look” territory. They’re almost a little rigid, now that I think about it. Though, it may have something to do with the fact that her entire midriff is exposed – she doesn’t want to risk any unflattering belly shots, I suppose. I have to say that I much prefer a more spontaneous Layla, even if it means covering up a bit for the sake of her poses. Grade: B
Uniqueness: This is pretty much your standard “casual look” photoshoot, and Layla’s poses don’t add much excitement either. She may look gorgeous and sexy (which she certainly does), but there’s nothing particularly unique about it. Grade: B-
Overall: The shoot is good, but nothing mind-blowing. It falls somewhere in between “forgettable” and “unforgettable”, which pretty much guarantees that I’ll forget it anyways. :P Grade: B
