Robyn Lawley | Vogue Australia September 2011

Plus-sized model Robyn Lawley is at it again, this time for the Vogue Australia September 2011 issue. Fresh from her recent Vogue Italia June cover and editorial shoot, Robyn Lawley stars in a 10-page fashion spread titled Belle Curve garbed in designer wear shot by Max Doyle. It must be noted that this is the first time Vogue Australia in all its 52-year history has featured a plus-sized model in a fashion editorial. Exciting stuff. The fashion editorial is also accompanied by a 2-page interview with Robyn Lawley.

The recent plus-sized model craze and Robyn Lawley’s rise to fame is definitely getting on and I must say these models look good. But I believe it would be a different story for Asians or people who are not as tall as Robyn Lawley is. No doubt Robyn Lawley is a US 12/UK 16 size but she is also 6’/1.82m tall. I’m just wondering if vertically challenged or petite women will look as good as these plus-sized models we see in magazines. So instead of featuring plus-sized models, how about a fashion editorial featuring petite models? And how about taking it a step further with a fashion spread on petite plus-sized models? Thoughts?

Check out the Vogue Australia September 2011 issue, due out in stores early August.

  1. Totally agree!! A size US12/UK16 for a 6′ model is very different for the same size on a shorter person. At least on a 6′ frame, the body is more proportioned and they have the advantage of height working in their favour. Would love to see fashion spreads for petites, especially since the average height for women is 5’4″.
