Australia’s ‘inbetweenie’ Robyn Lawley, just shot in Australia with Max Doyle. That shoot is in fact a 10-page designer fashion editorial called ‘Belle Curve’ in the September edition of Vogue Australia, which is out on August 3rd. The editorial is accompanied by a double-page interview with Lawley.
Kirstie Clements’ editor’s
“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. I said to a colleague on set later that day, “And men like curves don’t they?” He looked at me like I was an idiot. “Yes Kirsty, we certainly do” was his laconic reply. It’s an interesting conversation – the world of high fashion and fuller-figured women. One that needs to be continued”.
Chelsea Bonner, the director of plus size-specialist agency Bella Models
“Which just proves the point that there is clothing available for plus size models to wear in HIG FASHION, it just takes a little bit of extra effort to find them. Vogue Australia went to that effort and the results are incredible”.
This is the way I want to style ‘inbetweenies’ in magazines! Chapeau for fashion editor Meg Gray, who did a really good job! This is the perfect styling for plussize editorials! Robyn is totally dressed in beautiful designer clothes and not half naked as in Vogue Italia july.
