Halie 305 - XXL Magazine

XXL Magazine has always been a cut above when it comes to their eye candy photography. They eschew the overdone retouched look of the urban market for a more natural, softer image. And they don't use the usual urban photographers either, which is probably why they can achieve this look. Amy Postle shot these, and if you look at her portfolio you'll see all the tale tell signs of a working commercial photographer: heavy use of natural light, bright colors, photorealistic retouching, etc.

Halie is 23, 5'5", and her measurements are 36-24-41. Wow. Oh yeah, she was one the last standing on Chad Ochocinco’s VH1 reality show, The Ultimate Catch.

This girl has got "the look" if I've ever seen it.

Has The Digital Era Diminished The Power of Booty?

Question Posed: Has the deluge of big butts coming our way via Model Mayhem, Twitter, Facebook, blogs, etc. desensitized us to the women sporting them and lowered their desirability?

Short Answer
: (Emphatic) No!

Discussion: When I was coming up, there was no J Lo or Melyssa Ford or Smooth Magazine. The best we had was The Fly Girls on "In Living Color" and Wrex-n-Effect's "Rumpshaker." This doesn't mean women with phat backsides were any less popular back then than they are today, it's just that they were an undercover pleasure. There was no such thing as butt cleavage in low jeans. Because big booties were kind of black market through much of the 80s and 90s, you had to go through a lot to get one. Of course athletes and entertainers had VIP passes, just as they do today. But for your average guy, getting a girl with a pretty face and big butt was hella difficult.

Cut to present day. Everywhere you look there's a pretty woman with a big booty - magazines, the interweb, television, name it. But the question is, have all the derrières we've been bombarded with somehow lowered the value of this one-time rare and secret pleasure? In my personal experience, not one bit. Big booty hotties are just as difficult to snare today as they were 15 years ago. The only difference is that there's a lot more counterfeits out there than there once were. Hyrdrogel injections, butt pads, Photoshop - all created with the goal of exaggerating a woman's posterior. But the genuine articles still know who they are, and they're still ultra challenging to snag.

Interested to hear other's thoughts on this one.

Halie - "Person of Interest"

Okay, I give up. I can't find any problems with this girl. For all intents and purpose she appears to be FIONE! In fact, I am starting to get a very strong urge to want to photograph her, which is not good since the probability of that seems slim (begins to brainstorm about putting her in J'Adore shoot...) You can reach Halie on Twitter here and on Myspace here. Attribution: BlackMen magazine and Paul Cobo. Props to Ant and Tori T over at ECM as they appear to have discovered Halie.

Halie in New BlackMen Magazine

I don’t really know what to make of Halie. In some pics - most pics even - she looks pretty good to me. But I’ve seen some shots from her Myspace that weren’t so hot, and I’m not just talking about the photography. At any rate, she’s on the cover of the latest issue of BlackMen and she looks really good inside. So for now, she gets a thumbs up. (I’ve added one SHOW pic as a bonus). If you wanna see a whole bunch of pics of her, you can download them here (compliments of Wasabi):
