Leading Ladies We Love: Robyn Lawley
You’ve probably seen her in glossy magazine editorials or on billboards, because there is no denying that Robyn Lawley is arguably one today’s most popular plus size models gracing newsstands and campaigns alike. The Australian beauty stands at 6’ 2” and is a healthy, curvy size 12/14 model represented by a slew of prominent modeling agencies across the globe—including Wilhelmina Models, Bella Models, Milk Management, and New Madison Models.
Robyn’s curves have appeared on the covers of French Elle, French Marie Claire, and Vogue Italia—all major fashion publications. She is also the first plus size model to appear in a Ralph Lauren campaign. The 24 year old rising star is turning heads in the fashion industry while exposing the disparity between traditional modeling sizes and the plus size modeling label.
Even though Lawley is taller than the average woman, she wears the same 14 dress size and is noticeably firmer than other model peers. We love that she is a beacon for body acceptance in the fashion industry. Robyn’s success only demonstrates how outdated the plus size label is in the modeling world—her beauty eclipses any doubts that models are meant to be a size 4 and below only. We can only wish that we photographed as well as she does!
Robyn is not only successful as a model—she also collaborated with Bond-Eye Swimwear to release a personal line of suits designed for women in sizes 8-18. She blogs about food on her personal Tumblr (with a perfect, tongue-in-cheek name) Robyn Lawley Eats and is launching a cookbook with Random House publishing in the future.
Despite living in the spotlight, Lawley comes across as sweet natured and caring. Her short description from her blog shows what’s most important to the Aussie model: I am a self confessed foodie, I live in New York and I am a model, cooking and eating is the best gift in life and I want to share that gift.
We look forward to seeing Robyn on more covers of magazines and walking the catwalk in future fashion shows! We know that she would rock any of our Leading Lady full figure bra styles. Don’t forget to check out some of our popular bras that celebrate your curves and will make you feel like a star.
