Robyn Lawley      

First Plus-Size Model Featured in Sports Illustrated

Robyn is best known for her cover of Vogue Italia’s June 2011 issue, and the first Plus-size model to be shot for Australian Vogue. Robyn was also the first Australian plus size model to be on the cover of Madison, an Australian Fashion magazine and has shot countless editorials for magazines around the world such as Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Look, Mode, Marie Claire and Elle magazines to name a few.

Robyn has worked with world renown photographers including Lee Broomfield, Michel Haddi, Thierry Le Goues, Raphael Mazzucco and Steven Meisel and is also the first plus-size model to appear in a campaign for Ralph Lauren.

A turning point in Robyn’s career was Vogue Australia’s decision to shoot her as the first plus size model to appear in an editorial specifically produced for Vogue Australia in the magazine’s 52 year history. The Vogue Australia’s Editor-in-Chief, Kirstie Clements, noted: “This is the first time Vogue Australia has shot a larger model and, of course, now that we have done it, I ask myself why we didn’t do it sooner. But that’s because Robyn is especially gorgeous. I went to the shoot to meet her and was transfixed by her beauty and poise. She is a truly super- duper model. When a plus-size model first turns up to the studio, she may be an anomaly to a team normally used to working with size-6’s, but once photographer Max Doyle started shooting Robyn, we quickly readjusted our preconceived notions of beauty. She doesn’t actually look plus size to me at all now.”
