There is a nearly palpable sense of Latin heat to the star of Leonardo’s “Aventia,” Belinda A. But the model’s ethnic extraction is immaterial to this discussion — we have these photos to evaluate, and the smoke and steam this dark-eyed, bronze-skinned, vixen radiates is undeniably potent.
The “set” consists of a bright yellow seamless backdrop — a color which both flatters the model’s skin tones, while also offering a pleasing contrast to her eyes, hair, sky-high stiletto pumps, and black lingerie. In many of the images Belinda is seated or leaning against a stylish bar stool. With her feet on the floor, or high in the air, the prop supplies a multitude of posing options, and Belinda clearly enjoys experimenting with them.
For pure visual, erotic, and artistic impact, however, I tend to prefer the photos in this series from which the bar stool is absent, leaving the totally nude model to her own impressive devices on the glossy floor. Photo #0099 illustrates my point. Is it my imagination, or is there steam rising from the beautiful body in that relaxed and revealing pose?
