Fashion role model who proves you don't have to be thin

An article by Damien Woolnough, Fashion Editor of the Australian states that with this month’s Italian Vogue cover under her size-16 belt, Australian model Robyn Lawley is ample proof you don’t have to be thin to be big in fashion.


The 21-year-old also appeared on the cover of the April edition of French Elle and has returned to Australia to shoot campaigns for Myer and strut her stuff with local magazines.

“I think we are breaking down barriers at the moment,” Lawley said. “I feel confident and beautiful and I’m a size 16.”

The beauty’s confidence has been hard-won. Lawley started modelling in Sydney at 16 years old and was initially overwhelmed by pressure to be thin. “After a year of crazy dieting to try to stay under a size 10, I gave up and let my body recover,” she said.

“Two years later my sister suggested I see Chelsea Bonner at Bella Models, because every time we saw an editorial in a magazine using models who were over size 10 they were from her agency. She signed me on the spot.”
